Boldly treading the boundary between port, wine and beer, l"Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is a unique ale aged in wooden casks which have been used for several years before to age Merlot, Merlot Cabernet, Whisky and then Grappa. It manages to merge into L"Abbaye all the complex aromas of a vintage red wine along with the delicate harmony and flavors of the wood and its former contents. This process requires close monitoring of the beer"s evolution. The final version is blended from different casks, to ensure optimal balance, complexity and enjoyment!
