Focused, snappy bitterness followed by a burst of sweet fruit. Fruit and hop flavors through, refreshing wheat acidity and effusive hop flavors. The finish is semi-dry with hops flavors lingering.
In 2010 Brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project: maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels. He consulted a close friend, brewmaster Jérôme de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland, who grew up in a wine producing family. Together they created a truly unique doppelbock. In Aventinus Cuvée Barrique, fresh Aventinus and Aventinus Eisbock are aged in separate wine barrels for up to 8 months, and then expertly blended into a tannin-rich cuvée.
Aromas of blossoms, grapes, gooseberry and kiwi balanced by a malty nose with a fine bitterness and slightly sour fruitiness.
Eisbock is almost black in colour, full body with malty notes in the nose and chocolate, caramel, fruit and spices on the palate. A full and rich body make it pure indulgence to the extreme.
