What are barrel-aged beers? 什么是过桶啤酒?

  What is it?   A barrel-aged beer is a beer that has been aged for a period of time in a wooden barrel or in contact with wood.

 

简单地说, 过桶啤酒就是在木桶里陈酿过一段时间的啤酒。

The purpose of aging in wood is to retrieve the unique character of the wood, and/or flavor and aroma of what was previously in the barrel. The most commonly found barrel aged beers are those aged in oak barrels of bourbon or scotch. However, new barrels, wine or spirit barrels, and wood types of apple, alder, hickory and more can also be used for flavor and aroma. Some brewers also char or toast the barrels to further enhance the flavor of the wood.

 

在木桶中进行老化主要是为了吸收木材独特的味道和前宿者遗留下来的香味与香气,最常见的是波本和苏格兰橡木桶。当然,也可以用新桶、红酒桶、烈性酒桶,以及木质有苹果木、桤木、山胡桃等都能给酒提供丰富的味道。一些酿酒师甚至熏烤木桶来进一步增强木桶本身的味道。
