BARREL AGED BEERS
Ernest, a Barrel Aged Stock Ale, is our third style in Endeavour's Mixed Fermentation Project. This version was aged in oak wine barrels which created aromas of caramel, dark fruits, pralines, and sweet cherries. The flavours are deeply complex and include chocolate, coffee, fruit, caramel, and nuts reminiscent of a chocolate biscotti. This beer will make you want to eat something sweet and continue to drink it to the very end.
Flemish Red Ale
Endeavour Brewing’s second mixed fermentation beer is a classic Belgian Flemish Red Ale. This beer was aged in oak wine barrels for 300 days where wild yeast and bacteria created tantalizing candied plum, raisin, chocolate coco and sour aromas. The taste runs parallel to the nose but finishes with a dry, tannic finish that gives the suggestion of a vintage well-aged red wine. Solving the complexities of this taste profile will keep you coming back for another sip.
Barrel Aged Belgian Blonde
This is Endeavour Brewing's first mixed fermentation beer. The base beer, a Belgian Blonde, was brewed in early February 2021and then it spent 9 months maturing in oak wine barrels where Brettanomyces yeast performed it's magic. The combination results in a beer with wonderful stone fruit (nectarines, apricots) aromas. The low acidity makes this beer easy to drink and allows the citrus, light baking spices and oaky/wine notes to come through.
