bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, - MAR 7, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear and reddish brown in colour with a small head. Quite herbal with notes of malt, mynth, solantro and a bit floral as well as heathery in aroma.

StoutHead (673) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at brewery (yeah, backlog). Poured a hazy amber. Aroma was very fruity and ’fresh’. However, this is probably more for the girls (extreme prejudice going on here) than for a guy who loves stouts like me. Short story: I didn’t finish it...it was like drinking the contents of a flower vase. Won’t be missed.

Copenhagen beer festival. Made with heather and lavender. Clear brown beer. Clean tasting beer with obvious and pleasant herby perfume flavours. Crisp finish.

Lubiere (10147) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. A nice sweet herbaceous aroma with licorice, apple nectar, cinnamon, and chinotto. In mouth, a smooth sweet ale with rosebuds, camomille, herbs, chinotto soft drink and lactic points. Lighter bodied. Interesting, but I would not drink a pint of this. Bieropholie import.

VertBaconStrips (2088) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Thanks Boutip! Poured out a very deep amber with a small dissipating tan edge hugging fizz. The aroma is quite spiced and herbed. Mint, ginger, cinnamon, caramel, cookie dough, unleavened bread. Odd scents thankfully are at a manageable potency. Another day and I may have dug this more but I’m influenced by impy stouts which follow this. Cinnamon and ginger up front on the taste, christmasy no doubt. weak clove, light soda feel. caramel, light clove, herbs are under control. Pumpkin pieish for sure for flavour yet not disgustingly so like a pumpkin based brew. Minor carbonation is a bit spritzy, leaves a bit of coating. Finishes out with very mild bitterness and a fading blend of everything. It’s ok but that’s it.

Brandman (2108) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2010
Dark amber body, off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, bun, dough, bread. Traditional scottish ale, I think. Sweet roasted malt in flavour. Texture is too thin and watery. Nice beer, but there is something missing.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This very floral and herbal Gruit attempts to reach balance with its relatively talkative biscuit and caramel malt flavors, but the intensity of its heather apport make it a rather aggressive pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the hazy dark amber.
-While the perfume is engaging, I cannot say this level of floral intensity works well with the soft carbonation and lean dextrins in the mouthfeel.
-Malt flavors do express themselves throughout, but they just can’t quiet the deafening herbs.
-The floral profile has some fruity, orangey characteristics.

Bottle.
