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.

Pours a dark rich brown color - bottle #415/688. This bottle has no carbonation at all - completely flat and obviously no head. Aroma - almost porter like, but raisins, cherry, chocolate and maybe a hint of balsamic. Taste - tartness, chocolate, red fruit. Mildly creamy mouthfeel with an interesting soft finish and a slow finishing mild alcohol hotness. I want to like this, but wish there were some carbonation. Based on other reviews I would say this bottle wasn’t very well sealed. Taste profile seems similar so I don’t think there was spoilage.

12.5oz bottle. 2014 vintage. Pours a brownish red with a small, quickly-dissipating beige head. Aroma is raisins, vinegar, oak, wine, vanilla, a little toast, and berries. Taste is sour; chardonnay, oak, vanilla, raisins, some caramel, some green apple, a little berry, light spice, and a faint wheatiness. Some faint toast and a touch of banana just before the end. Dry finish. A little bit boozy. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Strong mouthfeel - lots of character from the barrels and just a hint of oiliness.

Aromat: jak dobre, czerwone wino, do tego pełne, Dużo tanicznych nut od beczki po winie, wiśnie, sporo świeżych i cierpkich owoców. Wygląd: brązowa miedź, piana biała,minimalna i po chwili znika całkiem do zera. Lekki gushing po otwarciu butelki. Smak: świetnie zbalansowane, cierpkie i słodkie, bardzo fajnie te smaki się ze sobą przeplatają, niewielka goryczka. Cierpkość i taniczność na świetnym poziomie. Sporo słodyczy od słodkich owoców, rodzynki, figi, daktyle, trochę karmelu, cierpkie owoce, wiśnie, jeżyny, winogrona, jagody, czerwone wino, nutki chlebowe. Pełnia a zarazem świetna pijalność. Odczucie: ciała sporo, finisz lekko cierpki, świetnie ułożone, wyraźna beczka. Całość: bardzo dobre, ciekawe, cierpkie,dobrze skomponowane i ułożone piwo, z dobrą beczką, aksamitne, owocowe, bardzo duża pijalność. Bardzo smaczne. 7/3/8/4/16

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
