Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien (2017)
11.0% Bière de Garde
L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is an antique beer, a strong sour ale with 11% abv aged in old wine oak barrels during one year. After the aging period, the different casks are blended together in order to obtain complexity and lots of flavors. St Bon-Chien is one of the world's flagship's sour beers coming from a mixed fermentation. It first ferments with wine yeast, then during the cask's maturation, lots of microorganisms coming from the casks change the beer's flavors' profile.

Matala hiilihappoinen punertava nektari. Ihanan helppo, omaan makuun voisi olla vielä hieman kuivempikin.

This beer has been brewed in 2017, matured in wine oak barrel, blended and bottled in July 2019. Turbid, deep raisin brown beer with powerful maroon tint and lazy carbonation creates an oppressed, white head that barely covers the surface. The layer melts soon to a thin lace ring only. The scent is massively vinous and a bit Lambic-y. I get bowls of sparkling wine, a generous punch of wild yeast and hefty redcurrant mash, accompanied by a whisper of raspberry and a silent sigh of black cherry. A somewhat stuffy wheaty note remains in the nostrils. The taste is awesome: it puckers the tastebuds big time! I receive extraordinarily sour redcurrant mash, some cranberry, a suggestion of raspberry and faint black cherry. The vinous punch is quite heavy whereas the wild yeast has disappeared completely. The Lambic-y impression has changed to that of a Sour Ale. The wheat is farmhousey. Oak barrel aging is recognizeable and has rounded the package considerably. The body is light-medium to medium. It's fairly thin provided the beer clocks at 11 %. The beer finishes with an unaltered offer in which the vinous, barrel aged and farmhousey elements are even more intense. The aftertaste gives the tastebuds no mercy for quite some time. The mouthfeel is intense, heavily vinous, powerfully barrel aged, a bit earthy and cellary. The mouthfeel is also extraordinarily tart and puckering but also slightly lip-glueing. It's beautifully matured, rich in berries, gardeny and somewhat summery. Truly attractive although not very layered. 💜💜

Interessanter, komplexer Geschmack. Jedoch nicht mein Ding. Fruchtig, ähnlich balsamico Essig. sehr sauer.
