COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 2010 Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project: maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels. He enjoyed the expertise of brewmaster Jérôme de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland who grew up in a wine producing family. Thus, they created delicious new beer aromes.
Mein Barrique Cuvée welcomes you with a fruity nose reminding of fighs and dried pears. On your palate you meet cherries, balanced by a hint of vanilla and chocolate and a pleasantly sour and liquorice taste. A warming well-balanced Cuvée with a long, dry finish - just like a good red wine.

Wine, oak and leather. Some tart cherries and a bit of old smoke.Not much of weiss remaining here, very vinous. Lovely thing! Great sipper. Totally flat, which in this case is not a bad thing.

750 mL bottle as "Tap X Aventinus Cuvée Barrique". Vintage 2014. The pour is a darker golden brown color with a thick cream colored head and a couple spots of lace as it falls to a thick collar. The aroma is sweet and alcoholic up front. There is a nice wine and oak that lingers and lingers. The fruitiness and a touch of sweet malt does well. The flavor is pretty good. The Chardonnay does well in helping the malts and a hint of fruitiness. The oak is light and nice. The malts balance and the finish is a little sharp. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with a nice bright carbonation and a lingeringly malty and sweet addition. The wine is pretty nice. This is decent.

Flasa z beershop.sk. Tmavo hneda az cierna farba, ziadna pena. Vona prezrete slivky, kyselkavost, vanilka. Sialene vysoka nasytenost. Chut kysla ako lambic, prezrete slivky, trpka dochut. Citit bretkami, slivky, visne, ... zaujimave, ale dost zmiesane pocity mam.

heman (1004) - Tychy, POLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Barwa brunatna, piana skąpa, szybko zanika. Piwo kompletnie nie przypomina bock-a, smakuje jak rasowy flanders red ale. Aromat lekko kwaśny, czerowne owoce, melasa, nuty waniliowe w tle. W smaku pełne i lekko kwaśne, czerwone wino, pestki z wiśni, czerwone owoce i nuty melasy. Finisz cierpki, taninowy. Jako weizen bock oceniam nisko, jako piwo bardzo przyjemne, złożone - fajny flanders red ale.

popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 26, 2017
750ml bottle. Limited Edition 2015. The beer is a deep mahogany-ish brown. Small beige head, just some scattered bubbles after a minute or so. The aroma shows off a lot of that wine barrel. Big fruit vinous note. Moderate oak. Toasted bready malt underneath. Light banana bread with a dash of holiday spice. Some dates, prunes, raspberries, plums, apricots. The taste shows off a touch more of the base beer’s sweetness, but it’s still picking up a lot of the sweet and sour fruitiness of the barrel, particularly in the finish. Full mouthfeel, slick and smooth. Brown sugar, molasses and spice underneath. Interesting beer. Quite wine-forward to the point of drowning out more of the base beer than I’d like, but it’s still a fun, tasty beer. Just not quite what I expected.

cmacklin (1174) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
750ml bottle. (2016 vintage) Pours a cloudy mahogany with lots of yeast sediment floating around and a thin, short lived, fully dissipating, beige head. Sour aroma of red wine, oak, cherries, fig, balsamic vinegar and just a hint of wheat malt. Sweet flavour of red wine, oak, toffee, chocolate, figs, balsamic vinegar, tart cherries, yeast, wheat malt and vanilla with a dry, acidic finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent, lots of complexity. A world class weizen bock.

3.8
reebtogi (6270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
750ml capped bottle pours amber in colour with 2 fingers of fizzy white head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing behind. Aroma is red wine and fruits with some hints of chocolate. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a bit of chocolate and a spicy hop bitterness and dry red wine finish. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a very nice brew that is much more complex than I can describe here. Highly recommended.
