COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
L’abbaye de St Bon-Chien est une bière acide de fermentation mixte mûrie durant un an dans des barriques ayant contenu du vin. Nous utilisons plusieurs fois ces barriques provenant des meilleurs vignerons suisses. Après cette longue période d’élevage, je déguste toutes les barriques tentant de les assembler au mieux pour parvenir à la fois à un équilibre et à la fois à une ligne de bières d’exception. Cette cuvée aux reflets rouges-ambrés est mûrie pendant de longs mois dans des fûts de chêne ayant déjà contenu du vin ou des eaux-de-vie. Ces fûts donneront des arômes très complexes à cette bière. En bouche, elle rappelle la trame d’un vin rouge fruité avec une acidité très marquée. Mais attention, je vous vois venir, pas question de me descendre une bouteilles de St Bon-Ch’ sortant du frigo dans des verres à moutarde Pingu, non ! Servie à 16.5 °C environ, dans un beau verre à pied accompagnant une souris d’agneau confite ou un bon Epoisse, vous apprécierez pleinement ce nectar. La légende veut que nous avions une chatte particulièrement sympathique qui répondait d’un petit miaou au nom de Bon-Chien. Lorsqu’elle nous quitta à jamais, pétris de tristesse nous organisâmes une cérémonie de sanctification décidant de dédier une cuvée incroyable à l’animal fraîchement disparue. L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien était née. Grâce à notre chatte disparue, notre bière fait maintenant le tour du monde. Elle connaît un franc succès aux Etats-Unis, au Japon, en France et Scandinavie par exemple

Ob tap @Stavio (Rome). Pours amber with a big and persistent off-white head. Aroma of wild yeasts (it reminds me Rodenbach), fruits, vinegar, wood, wow! Flavour is sour with vinegar notes, wood, vanilla and chocolate, amazing! Full body, medium carbonation. Original, fantastic!

Marcius (259) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Appearance with amber color, cloudy liquid and small head. Fruity grape aroma. On the palate, it is very sour, bitter and with a dry finish. It is a very different beer

BOTTLE 75 CL from Bov. Wow - lots of stuff going on. Bretty, funky aromas, some vinegar, nail polish remover, but also quite a big malty body and sweetness that is well masked by the lactic and mildly acetic sourness. A beer for slow sipping. Excellent.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2015
On tap at Haand Festival. An unclear, amber colored beer topped by a small, light beige head. The aroma is dominated by dried fruits and vinegar. Nice indeed, very nice, but lacking a bit on complexity. The flavor is meaty, with hints of dried fruits, vinegar and something chocolate-ish. It’s full-bodied and very round on the palate, smooth as hell. The vinegar is more evident in the finish. A bit rough on the corners this one, but it’s sure a fine brew, the flavor more complex than the aroma. 140524

(draught, rating #4500) hazy deep ruby-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of acetone, cherry stones and cookie dough, with lots of balsamic vinegar, some light kiwi and banana skins. flavour is mostly coconut, more banana skins and balsamic vinegar, rather tart, with a touch of starchy pale malts, cherry juice, milk chocolate and a light hint of alcohol in the finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.
