"In 2010 Hans-Peter Drexler started a new project maturing some of his finest beers in wine barrels.  He enjoyed the expertise of brewmaster Jerome de Rebetez from Brasserie des Franches Montagnes in Switzerland who grew up in a wine producing family.  
Thus, they created delicious new beer aromes.  Mein Barrique Cuvee welcomes you and a fruity nose reminding of fiigs and dried pears.  On the palate you meet cherries, balanced by a hint of vanilla and chocolate and a pleasantly sour and liquorice taste.   A warming well balanced Cuvee with a long, dry finish - just like good red wine." -- Georg VI. Schneider
