"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.

Has a cloudy straw color and a fair head. Not much aroma, but a nice smooth citrus flavor with a mildly bitter finish.

Bozo_skeleton (500) - 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 (1716) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 BOTTLE 33CL as Gentse Gruut Wit. Look: muddy pale straw, white creamy head. Aroma: tart wheat, very light fruity notes. Taste: wheat, light body, no very spicy, very little bitterness. A typical wit, minus the spices.

Het enige bier van deze brouwerij dat me tegengevallen is. Een doordeweeks witbier, zonder veel smaak

Nice pale yellow color with a high turbidity. Medium head. Weak and simple aromas. Acid taste and slight body. Very simple beer and no representative for the style.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2014
Klassisches Wit mit einer netten Portion an Gewurzen, dazu Hefe und einem leicht spritzigen Ende. Durchaus nett, leicht bieder, dennoch beinahe sueffig.

Pours out of the bottle in a hazy white-yellow colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of berries and hops. Taste of mild hops, wheat, sour berries, citrus and flowers. Wheaty finish. Nice one.
