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 its 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.

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 (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, 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.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2014
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.

EdwinLitzau (319) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2014
Bleke goudkleur, ietsje wit schuim. Ruikt erg lekker, moutig, sinaasappel, kaas. Smaakt apart, geen zoet, geen bitter. Wel wat veel koolzuur, maar lekker biertje.

Hansen (6433) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2014
Yellow coloured and unclear. Has a white head, lasting. Sweet aroma, faint orange and perhaps coriander. Thyme? Flavor is light sweet, light bread, hardly any bitterness. Creamy texture, bogmyrtle?

degbert (1061) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a high, white, shaving-cream head and considerable haze and lace. Nose is a clove-studded orange -- no, really, its one of those pomander things. Really nice. Clean and spicy on the tongue, with more orange-clove followed up by a honey or dark agave sweetness. Really enjoyable, and Im not the biggest fan of the style.
