Speciale editie. Donker bovengistend bier met stevig aangezette moutsmaken. Gebrouwen van water, gerstemout, suiker, hop en gist. Bevat een lage concentratie gluten. Zuster Agatha is niet gefilterd, niet gepasteuriseerd en is hervergist op fles. Martin Ostendorf van de Berghemse Muifelbrouwerij tekent deze maand voor het ABT Bier van de maand met zijn Zuster Agatha in speciale houtgerijpte editie. Samen met het ABT bestuur is gekozen om een eenmalige houtgerijpte editie van de Quadrupel Zuster Agatha hiervoor te selecteren. In de zomer van 2012 kon de Muifelbrouwerij via Slijterijt ’t Fust in Hoorn een 30 liter houten vaatje bemachtigen waarin een oude jenever van een bekende ambachtelijke Nederlandse jeneverstokerij had gerijpt. Dit vaatje werd afgevuld met een proefbrouwsel van een wat zwaarder ingebrouwen Zuster Agatha. De stevig aangezette houtsmaken bleken erg goed bij de rijke Quadrupel Zuster Agatha te passen. Het bestuur van het ABT was sterk onder de indruk van deze houtgerijpte variant van een van de lekkerste Nederlandse Quadrupels en in de zomer van 2013 werd besloten dit bier als ABT maandbier te selecteren. In samenwerking met Dirk Naudts van De “Proef”brouwerij Lochristi werd het proefbrouwsel verder op punt gezet en opgeschaald. De houtgerijpte variant heeft iets meer alcohol dan de reguliere Zuster Agatha (10,5% tegen normaal 10%) en de houtsmaken (vanille, fruit, tannine) zijn prachtig in balans met de warme moutsmaken. Het eenmalige brouwsel is afgevuld op 30 liter fusten en 33 cl flessen. Het bier zal slechts eenmalig worden gebrouwen.

33 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg. Aroma has red wine, vinegar and mild soapy tones. Also wood and sweet malt - and berry juice. Flavour has sweet berry juice, woody notes, minerals, some vinegar and mild vanilla tones. Juicy, sweet-ish and unusual. A quadrupel?? Definitely would not have guessed that.

Wat een geweldig bier is dit. Mooie volle smaak. Mooie bruine schuimkraag erop. Bier is heerlijk zacht van smaak. Smaken van zoet, vanille en eik. Heerlijke afdronk van chocolade. Bier drinkt goed weg, alcohol zit niet in de weg ondanks zijn 10.5%.

Originally intended as a one-off, this is now brewed once a year. Apparently matured on ’jenever’ barrels - a first for me, but since I do not like jenever too much, I do not have much confidence. Pours a transparent burgundy bronze colour, hazy, under a thinnish, lacing, pale beige head. Aroma weaker than expected, indeed revealing a hint of old ’jenever’, apart from marzipan, raisins, powder sugar, canned pineapple slices, candied cherries, banana liqueur, wine vinegar, indeed the vanilla-like tannins, warm apple cake, rubber, caramel, weeds, faint iron, blackcurrant, straw, calvados and a luckily faint touch of H2S (sewer water), fading away after a while to let the other aromas come to full development. Sweet onset of raisins, candied dates, passion fruit and candi sugar, medium and somewhat ’numbing’ carbonation becoming softer and friendlier in the end, a hint of sour berries - even with slightly drying effect; caramelly, bready and somewhat nutty, full maltiness provides background, yeastiness increases towards the finish, spicy, supported by herbal and peppery hop bitterishness in the finish though never becoming truly bitter, as well as solvents, lingering caramelly malt sweetness, something ’meaty’ (proteins), a very, very faint background smokiness and indeed a fair deal of warming, evidently ’jenever’-ish alcohol, on the brink of becoming wry, but still with a drying, astringent, though not really disturbing effect. Acceptable for what it pretends to be, but still a long way to go in comparison with e.g. the La Trappe Quadrupel Oak Aged editions, which are situated in exactly the same style.
