COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This already quite unique barley-wine was aged for 250 days in Italian Montalcino red wine barrels of the winery Castelnuovo Tancredi.
In this process the beer got the best of both worlds, making it a true Barley Wine.
You can enjoy this beer ’as is’ or combine it perfectly with chocolate or cheese.

Salute!
the ’Dochter van de Korenaar’

Nice aroma with oak and ’rust’, also in taste. Tannin, rust, oxidation, leather, bread raisins, nuts, alcohol, pinot de charentes without the sweetness, gravestone. Nice.

Piana sycząca, dość obfita, długo pozostaje w postaci chmurki. Barwa czerwono rubinowa, mętna. Aromat winny, taniczny, do tego karmelowy, ziołowy, z nutą suszonych owoców i melasy. W smaku sporo się dzieje - dużo rodzynkowo miodowej słodyczy, delikatna kwaskowość czerwonego wina czy wiśni, pikantność ziół i przypraw, w posmaku stare drewno, wosk pszczeli, drożdże. Goryczka średnia, pestkowo alkoholowa. Wysycenie raczej niskie, drobne, w odbiorze nie jest lepkie czy oleiste, ale pełne.
Ciekawe, inne od większości Barley Wine, ze sporym udziałem aromatów i posmaków czerwonego wina. Mając jednak możliwość wyboru, ze wszystkich trzech wersji wybrałbym podstawową, czystą wersję L’Ensemble, aktualnie degustowane czy Pure-oak nieco słabsze, zaś limitowany blend Mémoire wydaje się najmniej atrakcyjny.

Inoven (596) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2017
Fles gedeeld door TomHendriksen en gedronken met Benzai en Roelzie1986. Amberkleurig helder bier met weinig schuim. Weinig aroma. Smaak is fruitig en hoppig met een duidelijke smaak van het vat. Nasmaak blijft fruitig.

TomHendriksen (358) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2017
Fles gedeeld met Benzai, Inoven en Roelzie1986. Het is een amandelkleurig bier. De geur van wijn en hout zijn vollop aanwezig. Het heeft een sterke houtsmaak in de afdronk.

langeveld12 (522) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2017
Combination of beer and wine with clear malts but also vineous fruits. Raisins, caramel, slight roast, oak, wine, red fruits, grape. Some tart from the wine yeast, sweetness from the malts, bitterness from the hops. Full bodied. A big beer. All well in balance and quite subtle. A somewhat strange combination but for me it really works. Unlike any other beer I ever had.

Ysok02 (1397) - Mons, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2017
Par rapport à la cuvée classique, le nez de celle-ci est vineux, complexe, puissant tout en restant élégant et la bouche est à la fois ample et tendue, d’une longueur kilométrique. Une très grande bière.
