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.

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 (4077) - 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 (231) - 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.

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.

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.

Thanks to koelschtrinker! Pours an amber color with a slight haze and small tan head. The smell is wheat, dark fruit with a bit of tartness. The taste is raisins, slightly sour, wheat ending fruity and tart. Medium body with mild fine carbonation.
