Gruut brown beer has a deep brownish colour with a golden touch and develops a delicate and stable foam. The degustation is surprising but very pleasant. The beer has character and the presence of abundantly much taste.

Weinig geur, weinig schuim. Beetje zurig maar verder niet echt aansprekend. Valt tegen

Bontus (800) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2017
Bottle 33cl from Dranken Geers. Nose of sweet malts, munich malt, dark bread, slight fruity. Aroma of raisins, chocolate, sweet cream, capuccino even. Taste is rather sweet, lots of residual sugar. Not really sticky, the palate is smooth and velvety. Surprisingly rich but maybe a bit too sweet.

rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle 33 cl / Boissons Center - Montagny (CH). Muddy bloody orange beer with an average off-white head and active sparkling. Soft malted aromas caramel, roasted, cassonade, dry fruits and hint of yeast. The taste is soft, with caramel and spices, maraschino cherry, herbs, yeast and bitter of nuts-almond. Alcohol present.

DijkBier (446) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Hazy brown with quickly vanished beige head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, caramel, red fruits, plums, raisins, cherry, and indeed some nuts. Taste is quite sweet and quite much cherry and other red fruit; too much for me, and somewhat flat. Quite low carbonised. This beer is not well in balance to me; and not my taste...

Fairly average. Roasted grain, bit of spice, hints of bread and dark fruits and maybe some raisin . Dark amber color, very few foam.

Zlotta (3412) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Hazy, brownish amber with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a bit spicy aroma of caramel, brown sugar, some nuts and slight hints of dark fruits. Sweetish-malty, moderately yeasty-spicy and minimally fruity taste of caramel, nuts, some honey, clove and some dark fruits, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

KoNrRiI (1553) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very hazy, brown color with a small, off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, sugar, and vanilla as well as some sweet dough. Taste of malts, caramel, sugar, dark fruits, and some notes I cannot distinguish from the mix yet feel their impact. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is sweet, medium long, and emphasizes the caramel. Overall, not bad.

Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2016
@Fête de la Bière 2016, Vevey - hazy and quite dark brown beer with a good head retention; toasted aroma of caramel and biscuit, light spicy; full-bodied, pretty sweet with a chewy spicy, malty and sweeties-like finish

Boxereddy (479) - BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2016
Troebel amberbruin bier met licht bruine schuimkraag. Aroma: Medium banaan, brood, vanille. Smaak: zoet, vanille. Mondgevoel: gemiddeld met gemiddeld koolzuur en droge afdronk.

Parmenion777 (302) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Pours a cloudy amber colour with a light tan head. Caramelised banana, honey and vanilla aroma. Caramel sweetness and pronunced vanilla taste and a creamy feel in the mouth. A smooth lingering banana finish. Nice.

strap (936) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - APR 20, 2016
Sweet yet perfume like aroma with a hint of nuts and a fair amount of raisins. Caramel, raisin and vanilla flavor. Fairly decent beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
