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 (3675) - 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.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2015
Shared bottle at Bøker & Børst, Stavanger. Ruby brown, opaque body with a short lived, light brown head. Inviting oxidized apple compote, fruity malt, bretty prune nose. Refreshing complex sour fruity flavor. Oak and vanilla and plenty of vinuous barrel notes.Medium plus carbonated and medium bodied. Highly recommended.

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.

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.
