Koelschtrinker (20396) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 20, 2011
Stark kräuterartiger und ebenfalls hefiger Antrunk, der schon sehr stark erscheint, kurz darauf aber übermäßig nachlässt und einen fast laffen Grundton hinterlässt. Dennoch bleibt die Kräuternote, nur durch einen wässrigen Ton ergänzt, bestehen. Dennoch etwas zu intensiv in die Kräuterrichtung gehend. Ein ziemlich eigene sbIer, das bei geringerer Intensität besserwäre. 12/9/9/10/10/9

On tap at Jopenkerk, Haarlem on 4 April 2011. Darkish red / brown colour. Described by the server as made without hops but subsequent research suggests that may not be entirely correct. However, Koyt is a Dutch equivalent of gruit and various herbs and spices are quite dominant here. Language differences made an explanation of the herbs used difficult but I believe Bog Myrtle (aka Sweet Gale) is in the mix. I picked up notes of coriander too. Some medicinal cough syrup accents in the flavour too. Quite sweet but not too sticky. Overall, interesting and enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours ruby brown with a medium light tan head. The aroma is quite spicy with notes of nutmeg, chestnut, caramel, chocolate caramel and spicy yeast. The flavour is nutmeg, light ginger, light anise and caramel. Good spicy herbal brew.

Fra flaske, dufter af lakrids og krydderier, næsten sort med hvidt skum, smager dejligt af lakrids og krydderier og muskat nød! sød eftersmag....... en ok T ale...;)

Bottle from the Mitra. Surprisingly good, because I never had a Gruit beer. Very tasty. Somewhat between a red and a brown beer. The aroma is very sweet, but not too sweet. The absence of hop is clear, because it lacks the bitterness. But is really was a very nice suprise and I will certainly explore the world of gruit beers more.

abemorsten (3613) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - APR 3, 2011
Hazy orange with a creamy light brown film. Good lacing. Spices, candy, vanilla and spicy Belgian yeast aroma. Sweet, alcoholic and bitter flavors with spicy notes. Medium to full body. Lively carbonation. Dry finish.

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

Bottle, kindly shared by abemorsten. Pours red/nutbrown with tan head. Smells sweet and spicy. Tastes of sweet fruits, sugars and belgian yeast.

Hermod (7845) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2011
[email protected] Poured cola color with a white head. Aroma is spicy, cardemum and dough. Flavor similar, xmas spices and cake. Quite strange.
