Beer with herbs and spices… A relationship for centuries.
What is the difference between herbs and spices? And are some herbs and spices really enhancing some beers? Do brewers prefer to add a subtle touch or go for a real spice bomb in the glass? Either way, herbs & spices allow the brewer to experiment while brewing.
On Friday 9th of December 2022, The Lambikstoempers blindly tasted 10 beers containing one or more herbs/spices. Using pots and plants with different herbs and spices and some macerates, we tried to make the match. And yes, it was a very difficult but also very fascinating tasting!
