Okay... not knowing a thing about this beer other than the name before I ordered it, Im thinking theres something either rye, oat, and/or wheat-ish about this. Of course, who doesnt know that Gruut means wheat? It looks incredibly cloudy, with a muted dark orange color that reminds me of a combination of mud and orange juice. It has a thin, dense white head. One thing about this beer... it looks very unique. Props for that. It smells spicy (thinking cardamom, cinnamon, etc), backed by a smooth wheat-like malt. Its flavor is of fermented grains (in an old school kinda way) - thinking the yeast has something to do with these very defined qualities. Its thin, almost sour, but what sourness does show up is tame - fermentables used are gentle, not in your face at all, and whatever is responsible for the spiciness is just enough to spruce up the joint (also thanks to a light and lively body). Nicely done and very different. For a wheat (which is my least favorite ingredient in a beer), quite excellent.
