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.

Overall an amazing beer I am very glad I could try. One of the most complex things I have ever tasted. Sweet like a great oak aged beer yet still very sour and tart.

Erzengel (5082) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2014
Rating from 2010. Rotwein-holziger Geruch, orange bräunliche Farbe. Schöne Holzaromen. Der Antrunk ist süßlich-holzig, aromatisch-frisch. Angenehm säuerlich. ImNachgeschmack ist das Bier wein-typisch säuerlich, sehr lang anhaltend mit feiner Holznote. Sehr ausgewogen holzig-säuerlich mit feiner Hefemilde. Die 11% sind nicht zu schmecken!
Richtig tolles Bier! 14/13/14/14

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. Murky, ruddy-brown pour with a bit of froth for a head. Potent nose with notes of funk, cider vinegar, oak, nail polish, dark cherries, and apples. The nose translates to the flavor with a very robust profile. Lasting tart, funky notes. Plenty of oak, fruit, vinegar, and booze. Lasting finish. Powerful stuff.

thewolf (11387) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark chestnut with no real head. The has cherries, plums, oak, grapes, red wine. Low carbonation, fine dry and quite light and fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, oaky dry, grapes, caramel, sugary, vinious, lots of pinot noir. Quite tart and dry overall. Wonderfully complex and elegant, with only a slight paraffin note to detract.

Mørk rød farge med tynt hvitt skum. En veldig spennende øl. Lukter syrlig bær. Medium søt. Smaker syrlige kirsebær. lively carbonation. Munnfølelsen er fyldig. Denne kan jeg anbefale.

Sammy (9350) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
Amazing beer, last one at Bar Volo. A drinkable sourness, sometimes found in saison style, with only the faintest wine barreling in the finish. Rich, spicy, cherry.Smooth.

Scopey (8540) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. It pours deep red with a small white head. The nose is red berry, vinous, wood, earth, light vanilla, toasted coconut and natural yoghurt. The taste is tart red berry, vinous, wood, light acidity, jammy fruity, damp leaf, crisp acidity, mustiness, yoghurt, alcohol and tart green apple, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp tartness, good depth and balance. Another winner from BFM.
