L’Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is a BFM specialty that matures in oak barrels for 12 months, which received an honourable mention in the “New York Times” in 2009 as the best barley wine in the world.

The Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien is a strong sour ale of mixed fermentation, aged for a year in old wine oak barrels. The oak aging and the action of wild yeasts confer this beer’s astonishing wide range of aromas. Its outstanding complexity, balance, roundness and long finish, are the fruit of the meticulous blend of selected barrels. On the palate the blend reminds one of fruity red wines with a pronounced balsamic sourness.

The best way to enjoy a Bon-Chien is to serve it in an elegant wine glass at 16°C or 60.6°F paired with a duck breast or some panned foie gras for example.
