B. United will be importing a new one from Schneider & Sons. Cuvee Barrique is a collaboration between Brasserie Franches-Montagnes’s Jerome Rebetez in Switzerland and Hans-Peter Drexler. Schneider took their wheat doppelbock (Aventinus?) and aged in one of Jerome’s wine barrels. Start salivating.
A complex bottle-re-fermented wheat [bock]. An exotic hop-flowery nose is balanced by malty spiciness, lightly sour hop-fruitiness and a fine bitter finish.
