Scrapersnbeer (1469) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Spicy grain and white pepper hop aroma. Hazy blond aroma, looks like a wit but the Gruut wit is pale as a ghost. Herbal hops, honey sweetness, and again with the pepper for the flavor. Dry as you would guess, with a strange hairy after presence. Might drink it again, unlikely ever to see it again.

ThirstyBird (1544) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
From tap. Pours a hazy dull yellow with a thick bone-white head. The smell is spice, light malt sweetness, honey. The taste is similar to the nose. The body is a light plus while the carbonation is tight and soft.
