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.

teorn88 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - 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 didnt work as well for me. With this powerful aging, its important to like the liquid it has aged on. Since I dont really like jenever, I found this beer too sharp and boozy. Perhaps its better for jenever lovers.

kermis (12689) - The Hague / Amsterdam, 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.

tricksta_p (4305) - 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.

Sample from bottle. Cloudy orange pour, with a fizzy off white head. Very sweet, sugary, alcohol, some oak, gin and fruit. Kind of one note, sweet and boozy. Meh.
