St. Bernardus Abt 12 Barrel Aged Sour (ABV 10%) is a one-time special release. It was brewed with the same recipe as their flagship beer -- the classic Quadrupel Abt 12 -- but after brewing, the beer was rested in oak barrels for 3 years. This barrel aging lets the beer go sour in a natural way. In mid-2019 the aged beer was blended with freshly brewed Abt 12 and bottled.

The beer has a fruity and tart aroma that comes from St. Bernardus's own specific yeast strain. The taste is reminiscent of the classic Abt 12, striking a perfect balance between malty and bitter, but with added tartness and tannin from the oak barrels. The acidity in the finish masks the high alcohol content. rating: 91 (out of 100)
