COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Biere de Garde matured in oak barrels, mixture of 11 barrels of 225 litters: 6 Pinot Noir, 2 Chardonnay and 1 Pinot Gris de Neuchatel, 2 Merlot du Tessin. L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien, Strong sour ale, 11% vol. is a real UFO, is a beer brewed in honor of the former brewery cat, sanctified in her disappearance. This vintage shimmering red-amber is matured for months in oak barrels that previously contained wine or eau-de-vie. The drums give a very complex flavors this beer. In the mouth, she recalls the plot of a fruity red wine with a very sharp acidity.

on tap @ redlight redlight for sourfest. Sour fruit upfront with sharp citrus acidity, balanced by oak with some vanilla notes. Slightly more acidic than other vintages I’ve had with some acetic notes as well, but not too much. I love BFM.

Kristall-König (2318) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2011
Im Duft sehr weinartig, säuerlich nach Apfelmost und Rosinen. Antrunk keineswegs brachial sauer, sondern fein säuerlich. Mittig weiterhin säuerlich (vergorener Apfel), Rosine, Weinhefe, Holzfass und Muskat. Dabei intensiv weinartig und schon ein Alkoholnebel, der am Gaumen klebt. Abgangs trocken sauer, branntweinartige Noten und sehr liquide. Das Abbaye de Saint Bon Chien bietet eine nahezu perfekte Mischung von Wein und Bier - der Wein steht im Vordergrund. Hätte ich nicht so gelungen eingeschätzt. Hut ab.Test vom 23.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Bottle shared during AZRBWG. Pour is deep hazy red/amber with no head. Aroma shows tons of lactic tartness with notes of berries, oak, and vinegar. Flavor shows the same with a definate vinous character as well as toasted oak and a touch of funk. Overall body is moderate and the acidity is sharp.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a slightly-browned garnet color with a thin off white head and a tiny bit of lacing. Nose brings some lactic sourness, cherries, hints of dark fruits, and a bit of earth. Taste and feel add in a nice oak presence and the sourness becomes a bit more prevalent. The cherries and light malt fit well together bringing a nice bready character out. Drinks quite well; glad I got to try this one. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-14-2010
