Gruut brown beer has a deep brownish colour with a golden touch and develops a delicate and stable foam. The degustation is surprising but very pleasant. The beer has character and the presence of abundantly much taste.

From XXXII. In Teku glass. Playing Goodbye Deponia. Although I was eskeptical at this style without hops, ive been gladly surprise. Really nice taste and good aroma. 3 months after BB date. Ill try to get it fresh as well as trying to get other gruit brews.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3564) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2015
Tasting set on draft at the brewery. Brown, made with nuts, pours a beautiful amber brown with a buttery nutty aroma. The taste is sweet butterscotch diacetyl which I am not sure if they were aiming for but for me it is a miss.

corkyrory66 (1013) - BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2015
Brune à considérer moins comme une dubbel que comme une spice/herb foncée. Niveau abv de 7,5 %. Couleur brun caramel à roux moyen. Clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonne centrale spiralée, très vives. Mousse beige clair, bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, pointe de bois exo, girofle, groseilles noires. 1ère bouche souple à veloutée, au très bel ensemble boisé, fin, bien malté. Arrière-bouche longue, assez riche. 2ème avec de très jolies nuances, mais un manque de complexité. Arrière-bouche dense, maltée. 3ème très sympa, mais sans haut niveau. Arrière-bouche idem. Longueur sans vrai envol, la même ligne. Jambes marquées. Levure douce, un peu fleurie, correcte. Alcool bien, mais à la peine sur la longueur. Finale un peu plate, sans relief. CONCLUSION : une bière de la moyenne, pas désagréable, mais sans envolée lyrique !!
