HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2011
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.

WillemG (105) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2010
4-dec-2010 33cl bottle at parents. Ruby beer with average white head. Smells and tastes like herbs, not really a usual taste for beer. Must try this one again, maybe I will like it more on a second try.

LomYst (870) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2011 Thick bitter, malty aroma... chocolat and liquorish taste, some dark fruit... very lively, nice medium to full body... there is something medicinal/chemical in the aftertaste that i dont really like though... ----- Second time, much better! fruits and lots of spices, but in a subtle way... taste is very well balanced... weird aftertaste has disappeared

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Aroma had some whiskey and berries, very strong in general. I found that lots of hops and malts had been used to make this beer. Color is brown and taste strong, that will last long time. This is truly a special beer.
