Gruut Inferno 3.1
33cl bottle at home (20 II 2016). Huge foamy white thick collar topping a golden, yellow brew with vivid carbonation. Slick looking and spirit-like flavoured brew with keen hints of Belgian yeast and malts. There are some herbs in there as well, making a good combo for a Belgian strong ale. The taste is pretty spot on. At the first sip, you get welcomed by the sweetness of the malts, evolving in a bitterish body. The flavours are soft, smooth, sweetly enjoyable. The 9 percentage ABV does not feel that strong - although there definitely is an alcoholic warming ending - I expected it to be stronger, sharper. The subtle carbonation even makes this strong beer to a mild quencher. It also is less complex than I had it in my mind (I drank this years ago, at the launch or so) adding to this strong ale... A kind of dullness. Oh well, it just is a good flavoured, modest bodied, sweetened Belgian ale with a better nose than palate.

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.

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. Cannot believe that this is 9% drinks fine, clean tasting, it’s ok but no great shakes. Not sure where the Inferno bit comes from as it is not hot. A5 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

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.
