slowrunner77 (10757) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Different label, Koyt Gruitbier, in a corked caged 750. Dark red/brown w tan head. Looks and smells like a winter warmer. Malt and dark fruit, and plenty of herb/spice on the nose and palate. Medium bodied, and slightly dry. Abv is good as this would be quite thin at 5-6%, but is nice at this strength.

mjs (6730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 25 JUN 2017, at Rotterdam) The beer ruby red and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had berries, caramel and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were berries, spices, caramel and low bitterness. Aftertaste had berries and sweetness. A good and rather different brew.

Ritzn (758) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2016
Hazy copper/brown with minimal yellow-brown head. Aroma is caramel, clove, phenols, some berries, maybe rubber. Taste is intense brown sugar sweetness, roast bitterness, more complex than this sounds. A hint of peppers while swallowing with more roast and chocolate to follow. Good!

KoNrRiI (1319) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2016

0.5 draft.
A muddy, brown color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet, herbal, somewhat fruity, with a tad of liquor. A sweet taste also significantly marked with herbs - fruity, somewhat malty. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and unsurprisingly also herbal with a more notable bitterness. Overall the beer is atypical but nonetheless good.

brnandersen (3515) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016
Sample from bottle, CBWF 2016. Muddy, amber colour with a thin, off-white head. Sweet, spiced aroma with herbal notes, grains, fruits, citrus, caramel malts, peppers and sage. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with herbal notes. Strange, yet enjoyable.
