Nice traditional beer from Haarlem. Tastes somewhat like soft sugar candy (tumtum) with a slightly metallic taste. Tad too sweet but its great an oldstyle beer like this is still made.

Plaas (92) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 This is one of my favorite beers. It is a rather unusual beer, since there are no hops in it: it is spiced with a "gruit", a medieval mixture of herbs. Secret, of course, but there is a rumour that it contains gale. Jopen Koyt (Koyt or "Kuit" is the name of this unique Dutch style) is a very aromatic, bittersweet beer. Drinking it feels like eating cookies, but I like this more than cookies.

Very nice considering no hops, the best Gruit I have had yet. It is sublte, sweet, and spicy.

Bottle. My first gruit that I am aware of. Tasty, malty brew. Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is consistent with the style: malt forward and balance that comes from herbal notes rather than hop bitterness. I enjoyed this and look forward to other gruit beers.
