3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale yellow, cloudy. Wheaty nose, with perfumy spicyness. A bit like some aromatized soap bars. Body is soft. Wheat, spices. Strange drink. Very much like some soap bars aromatically. Some citrus too. Quite easy to drink, and the spicyness isn’t really that offending, you get used to it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated from 33cl bottle BB12/07/2014, had on tap. - The RB commercial description omits that this is the ?only Belgian brewery making beers without hops according to the pre-germanic Medieval recipes. - Pours a less than inviting milk-wey straw yellow-green, small pillowy head. Nose is unusual and slightly stale, heavy on indefinable spices and a hint of clove. taste makes up for this: coriander, fresh wheat, used lemon tea bag light, slick-bready palate. Unusual, bordering on unbalanced but not too shabby for a wit without any hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Yamaichi. Brilliant pastel golden, low, fine head. Malty, grainy nose, lemon and citrus, herbs. Decent. Nice malt flavor, wheat, cereals, honey. Citrus and spices. Relatively light, refreshing stuff. Not at all gimmicky or overdone. I like what they are doing with the gruut.
