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.

Hazy amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is smooth with good fine carbonation. Smooth sweet malts, creamy sweetness with mild caramel - toffee. Smooth fruit liqueur with a modest gin like kick. Trace of dried fruits and a little spice before a semi dry finish. Fairly mellow, tasty and pretty drinkable.
