COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for Restaurant Librije. Brewed with spices and trekdrop. Librije’s bier is roodbruin tot kastanjebruin van kleur, helder met beige kleurig schuim is afgevuld in excentriek zwart gespoten champagneflessen en voorzien van het Librije kruidenbuiltje en het jaar van uitgifte. Het bestaat uit ingrediënten als gagel, jeneverbes, chilipeper en trekdrop. Donkere karamel moutsoorten geven het bier body en een zacht licht zoetige smaak met herkenbare duidelijke tonen van karamel, zoethout en drop. De nasmaak doet sterk denken aan rozijnen, salmiak en sinaasappel, terwijl de geur van rood fruit, zoethout en karamel overheerst.

Uit een grote fles @ beerpreuvenement Horst. Donkerbruin, matige kraag. Ruikt houtig, port. Smaakt crêmig, caramel, port, amaretto,caramel. Ik had een wat vollere smaak verwacht, vond ’m een beetje dun.

75cl bottle shared at Jopenkerk, 2014 edition. Dark brown with a soapy tan head. Full body with low carbonation. Lot of sweet tones with some nice bitterness. Licorice, raisin, herbs, flowers, caramel and dark fruits. Quite a tasty experience, different but tasty.

LomYst (537) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
Weird and heavy licorice, some other herbal off notes... Thick sweet body, alcohol is well hidden... Gets better after eating some trek drop

Spices, liquorice is heavy (but that’s an ingredient). Warming but it has that menthol/spices, cough syrup feel that isn’t always too pleasant. From a bottle at NHBF14
