COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Matured for two years in French Pinot Noir Barrels.

Our brewmaster, Hans-Peter Drexler, and Jerome de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland matured some of the famous Aventinus Eisbock in red wine barrels for many months. Enjoy this rich combination of the complex Aventinus Eisbock aromes and the woody character from the wine barrel.

Aventinus Eisbock Barrique welcomes you with an intense raspberry, cherry and vanilla aroma. A very rich and harmonious taste of chocolate, vanilla and berries will explode in your mouth leaving a lasting and pleasant after-taste reminding you of good red wine. I recommend this beer with chocolate and red fruit dessert or a blue cheese. However, as it is so complex that it can easily be enjoyed on its own.

Only 688 bottles produced.

A slightly hazy brown color, with a small white head. It has a fruity wine aroma, acetic acid notes and the disposal is malty. It also has a slight banana-note. It tastes like caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate and raisins, furthermore it has a sour note.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2014
2014 bottle, notes that this is aged in Chardonnay barrels (unlike the other versions, I think which were aged in Pinot barrels). Pours deep dark brown with a tinge of red on the edges and ahalf finger of off white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is tart and vinous, with some paint thinner notes, vinegar, plums, acidic in my nostrils. Flavor is sour black cherries, heavy wine notes, clean finish leaving a lightly tart, dry oaky finish on the palate. Heavier for a sour, in the Flanders range of brews, with some light yet prickly carbonation. This was pretty good, but also quite a detour from Aventinus.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014
Big 750ml bottle at Cafe Abseits shared with Finn, Jan and a few others. A patchy layer at the top of a slightly hazy red-brown coloured body. Aroma of red orange and earthy malts. Mid-tart taste of red berries, lemon, dried fruits,and oak.Vinous. Tart and sweet to the ending. Smooth on the swallow. Nice (Bamberg 11.10.2014).

Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
One of Schneider’s barrel aging experiments, which has led to a very complex and fascinating beer, especially to German-style standards. Thin, cream coloured head, bronze robe. Fruity aroma, banana, strawberry, redcurrant, raspberry vinegar, sherry, balsamic vinegar, lemony acidity. Taste wonderfully complex, red berries, soft sweetish fruitiness balanced by an oud-bruin-like tartness, vinous, wheaty, woody background. Superficially speaking, this seems to hold the middle between a Weizenbock and an oud bruin and unites the best of both worlds.

CarlJonas (218) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
Cloudy brown color. Small head. Vineous and slightly funky cherry aroma. Quite intensely sour taste. Combined with the cherry and a dry tobacco finish you could be fooled into thinking you?re drinking a kriek, but there is a definite maltiness in there somewhere that gives it away. Low carbonation, medium body. Not what I expected at all and therefore pretty difficult to rate, is it really supposed to be quite this sour? But an interesting beverage none the less.

MatteoD. (137) - ITALY - JUN 8, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Bottiglia da 750 ml. Piccola testa di schiuma beige e di breve durata, colore marrone ambrato opalescente, aroma acetico, di vino, di botte, sentore di frutti di bosco, al palato corpo pieno con nota alcolica e carbonazione media, in bocca riprendono vigore le note acetiche e vinose, il finale amaro e secco chiude il cerchio. Una birra particolare ma che mi è sembrata più che piacevole.

ClubGonzo (4231) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC, Foffern and Gunnar, courtesy of Gunnar - thanks man! :-) Pours a slightly hazy nougat brown body with a small white head. Nose is vinous fruity, nearly acetic overtones on a deep malty background of grains, banana and hints of nougat. Taste is caramel, Norwegian brown cheese ("brunost"), vanilla, sour acidic tones, hints of milk chocolate and dry grapes. Very nice. Full body, smooth carbonation. A solid "experimental" beer from Schneider.
