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.

Wow oh wow. Fantastic, there is almost to much going on in this. You can really taste the wine barriques this has been aged in. Hints of Pinot Noir, with lots of fruit. Just wow.

Bottle. Bretty nose, dusty, caramel, raisin, cherry, chocolate, vanilla, oak. Very complex and subtle flavors, bretty, with chocolate. Fun, complex, and surprising. A bit shocking at first to have a barnyard Aventinus, but this really worked, and got better as it warmed and opened up. Thanks to Shuichi for sharing!

A violent and complex taste experience. Aventinus and Aventinus ice buck store TAP6 barrique into four different ones, before they are united to an incomparable Cuvée and improved in the unique tailor white fermentation in the bottle.

What a oddly beautiful beer. Woody and very fruity it is as smooth as the proverbial baby’s b. Very beguiling and shapeshifts on a number of occasions. I went back and forth, but in the end it is a class act. Some nice full brett, but not over the top. Rich, but hiding ABV well. Some plum, berry and dried fruit in the body. Very Orvallian in many ways, though much fruitier. Top draw.

Alengrin (2324) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4159) - 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.

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.
