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.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Deep chestnut brown colored pour. Sizable off-white head that lasts a while. Nice oaky, weizen aroma of bananas, wheat and yeast. Slight up-front alcohol presence and a very warming alcohol bite. Sweet malt flavor, with some fruity esters. A bit too much alcohol, but otherwise balanced. Not bad.

sjogro (4653) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2017
Bottle from/at Puttetjes. Dark but clear brown with thin greyish ring head. Sweet syruppy caramel malts with stronger balsamic sour, cherries, prune and pear peels. Notes of sherry and red wine. Moderate sweet and quite sour, mild bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice notes of minerals and tannins in the syruppy darkness. Very nice!

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Aftrr dinner. No foam. Ugly aspect. The woody, winey, sourish profile hasnt captivated me, I found it pretty plain and boring. The body, watery

ironcontra (401) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2017
2016 series. Aroma doesn't come through too strong... Good on taste though, red wine, dried fruit, hints of chocolate and caramel. Light body, minimal head, carbonation low but present.

luttonm (6657) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Small head, ruby brown, fairly clear. Punchy brown malt, brown sugar and alcohol rounded with Pinot noir flavors. Light pepper, earthy edges. Great.

bonev (957) - POLAND - SEP 1, 2017
Rocznik 2016: Piwo metne w kolorze brunatnym nalewa sie praktycznie bez piany. W aromacie suszone czerwone owoce, gozdziki i karmel z nuta ciemnego chleba. W smaku czuc wiecej nut winno - beczkowych, troche kwasno-cierpkich wisni na finiszy z taniczna goryczka na niskim poziomie. Polpelne cialo i niskie wysycenie, beczka sprawila ze stalo sie bardziej swieze i niemulace. Beczka miala bardzo duzy wplyw i zmienila to piwo o 180stopni jesli chodzi o jego odbior.

oobawa (1659) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2017
2014 bottle. First time I’ve seen--much less tried--a chardonnay barrel-aged sour weizenbock, and damned if it isn’t a pretty delicious beer. Aroma’s tart as hell, a strong yeasty sourness laced with oak, funk, and underlying sweet clove. The pour is just okay, coming out a hazy brown with red edges, but barely issuing up a head or lace. Taste starts with a Rainier cherry sweetness, tart and acidic on top of a sugary base, then quickly develops berry and citric notes, bright and assertive. The chardonnay barrels take hold on the back end, vanilla and oak and white wine all meshing with the dark fig and rum-banana weizenbock backbone of the beer. Finishes vinous and with a lingering woodsy bitterness. Scary how easy and drinkable the pint is, without a trace of alcohol warmth despite the 9.5% ABV. Shocked by the quality of this beer. This is something special.

Copper colour, medium head with shor retention, No lace. Aroma of wood, wine (Chardonnay?), chocolate, cherries, prunes, dates, caramel, banana, vanilla. Medium to full body,oily and thick palate, no carbonation. Taste of grapes, wood, chocolate, wine, cherries, dried fruits, caramel, vanilla, wine. Acid finish. Great and complex beer.
