COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Before the German Purity Law "Reinheitsgebot" of 1516 it was common practice to use any kind of different spices, herbs, fruits and other plants to provide balance to beer. Hops was not yet well known at this time. Grut bier has roots in many cultures and each culture had its own special ingredients": Egyptians, Native Americans, Arabian Tribes, Gaulles, Germanic Tribes and the Vikings. This interpretation of a traditional Grut Bier is spiced with Lorbeer (Bay Leaves), Ingwer (Ginger), Kummel (Caraway), Anis (Anise), Rosemarin (Rosemarie) & Enzian (Gentian). It is brewed with water, wheat & barley malt, "pollinated wild hops" and fermented using top fermenting yeast. - Dr. Fritz Briem Historic Signature Series

Koelschtrinker (19439) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Deutlich kruterartiger und frischer Antrunk, in dem die moderate Herbe schon fast untergeht. Stark karbonisiert geht es weiter, die Kruteraromen bleiben dabei konstant und wirken nicht so, als htten sie irgendwann vor abzuschwchen. Und so ist es dann auch, erfrischend anders geht das Bier weiter, die Herbe hat sich mitlerweile verabschiedet und berlsst den Kruternoten nun den gesamten Bereich. Etwas brauseartig wirkender Abgang. beraus interessant! Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock fr das Bier! /11/12/10/11/11

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2009
Cloudy yellow with no head. That is one spicy mamma jamma! Rosemary, black pepper, flowers, cinnamon and mint al lin there. Complex herbal palate is fairly peppery and finishes with a distinct rosemary note. Very refreshing, almost gingery. I could drink a lot of this - have I met a gruit I dont like yet?

Drake (13300) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2009
16.9 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy pale peach color with a thin head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma is dominated by the ginger but also has some sage and lavender like herbal notes. Taste is very dry with strong citrus and ginger notes as well as a faint nondescript herbalness. Thin bodied. Interesting.
