Brew N1, 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.

Alengrin (4826) - BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2016
Bottle shared at Belgium Chimipalooza, 2014 vintage. Creamy, moussy, off-white head, hazy orangey blonde robe. Aroma indeed reminiscent of oude jenever and juniper berries, banana, white bread dough, pineapple, wodka, pineapple, peach. Sweet peachy and banana-like fruitiness with a sourish gooseberry edge, softish carbo, fluffy and bready middle, honeyish malt sweetness dried by floral hops, yeasty spiciness and, expectedly, strong jenever-like alcohol in the end. I hate jenever so this is not one for my tooth, but an interesting ale nonetheless.
