COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brew N°1, Limited edition of 1755 bottles

The first beer made in our new oak aged gamma has been aged on Belgian Gin barrels. The aroma searches a balance between caramel, toasted bread and some fruity aspects such as apricot and plum. Also there is some form of spices, tasted as pepper and safran. The taste itself is mainly exotic fruit flavours, cassis and caramel. We end with a pure beer taste with a royal dose of heating alcohol.

75cl bottle at home. Clear golden with almost no head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Orange, apricot, sugar, caramel, some jenever and herbs. A nice sweet brew, but not too special.

teorn88 (3023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Keg at the Kings Arms. It pours a hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Creamy foam that lasts quite long. Aroma Is sweet sticky juicy fruits, light woody alcohol and light gin herbs. Taste is mostly sweet, with juicy notes of orange and mango, more herbs and estery peppery yeast quality. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, interesting but a sipper.

This one didn’t work as well for me. With this powerful aging, it’s important to like the liquid it has aged on. Since I don’t really like jenever, I found this beer too sharp and boozy. Perhaps it’s better for jenever lovers.

kermis (5746) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Draft at the Kaapse Beer festival. Pours cloudy golden brown with an off white head. Aroma of light fruits, vinous aspects, jenever coming out but not as obnoxiously as I thought it might. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Bottle from Ben. Hazy amber colour, thin white foam. Soft carbonation. Fruity aroma with notes of brown sugar and apricot. Very sweet boozy aftertaste. Alcoholic finish. Too sweet and boozy, not very well balanced.

tricksta_p (1355) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
As Barrel Aged Project 2013 - Brew No 9 Jenever. I think this should have a seperate entry. Aroma of fruits, apricot, orange peel, sugar. Flavour is fruity sweetness, some alcohol burn, very thick apricot flavour. This one is okay but I was disappointed to detect very little of the Jenever barrel aging besides the high ABV.
