"Gruut" is an ancient Flemish coin. In medieval Ghent, brewers used Gruuts to pay taxes on the richness of their brew. Gentse Stadsbrouwerij has revived this ancient tradition with Gruut Amber Ale. Enjoy it’s rich taste, deep copper color, and smooth-drink-ability.

0.33L bottle. Pours clear amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Some different aromas on this one. Cherry, minerals, salty dough, Mild sweet at beginning with nice bready malt and raisin notes. Middle gives way to a broader sweetness, then finishes relatively dry with some alcohol in the chest at the end. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly mild beer, with some interesting aromas. Nothing really standing out, but also could see myself drinking quite a few of these in an evening.

Een lekker bier, volle smaak. Net als de meeste van deze brouwerij stelt dit bier ook niet teleur.

Nice red colored Amber Ale, light "fruity". Brewery in Gent is nice to visit. First heard of it while watching "Tournee Generale".

Mooie heldere bruine kleur. Geen schuim, redelijk wat koolzuur. Ruikt naar hoestdrank, zoet, karamel. Smaakt erg lekker, zoet en bitter. Winterbier!
