Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes: L'Abbaye De St Bon Chien 2015 11.0% [375ml]
They say "L'Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is an antique beer, a strong sour ale with 11% abv aged in old wine oak barrels for one year. After the aging period, the different casks are blended together to obtain complexity and lots of flavours. 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 flavour profile."
We say "This is an ideal beer for aging, and here we have the 2015 edition. Pair with good company and an extravagant charcuterie board for a luxurious evening that's if you want to share it, we won't tell anyone if you don't. Expect ripe red fruit, dark sugars, balsamic vinegar, vanilla and woody notes in this thoroughly enjoyable sour."
