COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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 tradition with Gruut Wit Beer. Enjoy it’s natural cloudiness, golden color, and refreshing finish.

Bozo_skeleton (526) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 22, 2014
Nettement en dessous de la Troublette goûtée le même soir. Des aromes sympa d’épice et de citron mais trop mince en bouche et manquant de caractère.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
Gruut’s witbier, with snow white, thin, creamy head and yellowish ochre blonde colour, cloudy, looking like your average white. Soft grainy and wheaty aroma, straw, lemon, coriander; fresh lemon zest and grapefruit peel in the onset, then becoming more grainy and explicitly wheaty, sourish carbonation, subtle coriander, dryish finish. Nothing out of the ordinary - I’d even dare say, another Hoegaarden clone, albeit less industrial.
