A close look through the brown bottle reveals plenty of easily disturbed sediment. This settles quickly. Lively pour into the Duvel tulip with a good head that leaves some thin lace. Color is a macro-like golden hue.
Nose is a medicinal herb mixture with some lemon pine bathroom cleaner and a little Belgian yeast! Not quite as disgusting as that combo sounds!
The taste is VERY unusual. A combination of lemon, pine, soap, yeast, pepper and Belgian spice. Odd. The label mentions “gin”, so I assume some juniper inspiration too.
A little thin in the mouth – lacks real body.
A very odd beer, but pretty interesting. If you like gin (as I do) you’ll probably enjoy this, but I don’t think anyone could drink a huge quantity. I like it, I bet that many won’t.
