En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie lors du party 1er anniversaire. Arôme: Odeur d’herbes avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée-dorée légèrement voilée. Saveur: Goût d’herbes avec une pointe de sirop pour la toux. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence d’herbes en arrière goût. (Rating #4040)

My Bottom Line :
Pungently herbal and fruity, this lean Gruit is marred by a vinegar-y splash in the finish which clashes with the greenness of the aroma.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-There isn’t much foam atop the russet.
-That vinegar component was redolent of pickle juice at times.
-Tartness after such a strong herbaceous flavor just doesn’t jive.
-I have trouble imagining this was how the brew was intended since everything else at Albion is super clean. Must try this again.
-Must try this again since everything at Albion is usually super clean and very drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub.
