COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Hazy dark yellow to light brown with a big foamy off white head. Sweet green apple, pear, and grape aroma with strong juniper and gin notes and a hint of oak. Burnt caramel, apple, and grape aroma up front followed by spicy and woody juniper flavors and finishing with hot alcohol. Bright buttery palate. Good but a bit too pricy for what it is.

ansjelaah (1747) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2012
Gedronken bij de kroon, dankzij joes, bruin en helde van kleur, kleine schuimkraag, ruikt sterk naar alcohol, hout, nagellakremover. Smaakt een beetje te sterk alc. Zoet, het vliegend hert achtig (denk ik).

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.
