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.

Bottle 750ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TFODRBSG12, Ulfborg.

[ Bottle # 120 ]. Unclear medium red amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, caramel, light to moderate yeasty, moderate to light heavy oak. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet with a long duration, sweet malt - fruit, sweet fruity, oak - wood, seet yeast. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. IMO. the oak is to dominating, maybe been to longtime on the barrels. [20120818]

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. An unclear, brown beer with a small, dense, off-white head. Some banana and caramel in the aroma, which is quite weak. Vinous and lightly lemony too. The flavor is lightly lemony and vinous, not warming, with some caramel and banana. Full-bodied, rather effervescent. Banana, caramel and a vinous twist in the end. Not my favorite Aventinus, but quite pleasant anyway. 120818

Fin (9667) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home Friday 15th May 2015 in company of Lynn and Barry. Wow this is really fruity, tart and tangy and very sour and wheaty! I hadn’t a clue what this beer was just picked up as not had it before so was surprised at the level of sourness, really fruity with berries in abundance, great stuff. Shared with Barry, but Lynn really liked this as well. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
