Bierband or eau-de-vie de bière is obtained by the distillation of beer. It must be distilled in such a way that the distillation product has the flavor characteristics of beer. I was curious about the taste and how well it resembles the hops aroma.
I picked a Pilsner beer from the local supermarked. Nothing special. Just to see how it will turn out. The results was a 32% ABV Bierbrand. The fine hops flavours apear to the nose already. It is very mild and tasty.
Now I wonder how the malt flavours go on a bierbrand of a dark lager for example.
