Gruut Amber Ale 2.7
330 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a medium sized tan head. Aroma reminds me a lot about this typical smell I get from malt extract brewing kit. Can’t really put my finger on it, it’s just something with malt, caramel and yeast that smells a bit unfinished somehow. Flavor is sweet malt, toast, red apples and low bitterness. Medium body and a bit fruity in aftertaste. Quite plain. I’m aware it’s brewed with gruut and that could be unusually and challenging, but I still think there should be a reason for doing such thing that has some more interesting flavor as aa result. Still want to try other beers from this brewery if available.

Gruut Belgian Wit Bier 3
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow colour with a small but long lasting creamy white head. Aroma is a little weak, just some citrus and wheat. Flavour is a bit bland, citrus and wheat again, couldn’t detect any spices one would expect. Not unpleasant but disappointing for a witbier.

Bottle at Bridge Brasserie, Gent, Sunday 18th October 2015. Looks like a pilsner in appearance, clean, clear gold with a white sticky head.

Gruut Belgian Wit Bier 3
bottle. Hazy pale golden with one finger head. Extremely underwhelming witbier. Some bland wheat and that’s about it. No citrus at all, and almost no wit spicing. Expected far more from a Belgian wit.

Tasting set on draft at the brewery. Inferno tripel is the only one that uses hops. Bright clear gold with a buttery rich cinnamon flavor, taste also has buttery diacetyl, spice and alcohol burn another off beer.

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.

Gruut Blond 3.3
Cloudy yellow with nice snowwhite foam, aroma of herbs, spices and yeast, smells refreshing, begins softly with little carbonization, tastes malty with lots of herbs, as the foam slowly disappears the malty taste makes slowly room for a more prominent herb and floral character, average beer in taste

Gruut Blond 2.4
Bière blonde basique avec malt d’orge, et des herbes qui remplacent le houblon (le gruut). Niveau abv de 5 % ... On ne va pas casser des briques !! Couleur jaune doré brillant, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale par centaines, bien vives. Mousse blanc cassé crémeuse, stable à 1 mm. Arômes de blé, pointe de miel, fleurs des prés, nougat blanc, pointe de réglisse. 1ère bouche douce à soyeuse, à l’entrée mitigée malt et herbes, sans relief. Arrière-bouche très gommée, voire même gommineuse. 2ème où rien ne s’approfondit. Arrière-bouche avec du vague à l’âme. 3ème avec des herbes un peu mieux placées, mais toujours très vagues. Arrière-bouche plate. Longueur un peu plus pleine, plus intégrée, mais à la peine. Jambes fines, groupées, un peu collantes. Levure douce mais très maigre. Alcool tout à fait indifférent à son sujet … d’ailleurs, que peut-il le petit ?? Finale innocente. CONCLUSION : une bière de très moyenne gamme, sans relief.

Gruut Inferno 2.5
33cl bottle from Õllepood Nr.2 Gambrinus, Pärnu. Pours clear golden with a fairly decent white head. Malty and slightly spicy aroma with notes of honey, herb and alcohol, hints of ripe fruits, caramel and Belgian yeast too. Sweet and somewhat boozy as the alcohol is quite noticeable. Not much bitterness, but I didn’t expect that either. Haven’t been very impressed with any of the beers I’ve tried so far from the brewery. All of them were drinkable, but mostly highly forgettable, bur this one is borderline unpleasant.
