Bottle. Clear golden colored with a full white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy, notes of lemon, grass and spices, hints of glove and coriander. Taste is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. Medium to thick body, low carbonation and a quite smooth mouthfeel, along with a alcoholic warmth. Flavor is fruity and spicy as well, but gets some more malty notes and a peppery hint. Leaves a light bitter aftertaste.

Gruut Inferno
Paksu valkoinen vaahto, joka jää pitkäksi aikaa oluen pinnalle. Väriltään oranssi/vaaleanrusehtava. Tuoksu varsin mieto, hedelmää ja makeutta, maussa makeahkoa hedelmäisyyttä. Ei juuri jälkipuraisua, suutuntuma ei kovin vahva, hieman metallisuutta havaittavissa. Alkoholi ei maistu liikaa kovista volteista huolimatta. Hiilihappoinen, paljon pieniä kuplia. Ei mikään erikoinen tapaus, paljon parempiakin Belgejä on maa täynnä.

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.

0.33 bottle.
A clear, gold color with a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, pears, and faint notes of other fruits. Taste is yeasty, alcoholic, fruity - smacks a bit of fermentation. A full body, a creamy texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long, fruity, and does not forget the aforementioned fermentation. Overall the beer is fine yet very simple.

330 ml bottle from the brewery. Almost clear golden body with a big, frothy, long lasting white head. Not much aroma, some pale malt, herbs, hint of mature apples and leaves. Flavor is quite sweet, white sugar, pale malt, yeast, herbs and hint of alcohol. Low bitterness. Medium to full body and sweet aftertaste. It’s kinda interesting when you know what these beers are about, but objectively it’s a rather dull beer.

3.1
Gruut Inferno
33cl bottle at home (20 II 2016). Huge foamy white thick collar topping a golden, yellow brew with vivid carbonation. Slick looking and spirit-like flavoured brew with keen hints of Belgian yeast and malts. There are some herbs in there as well, making a good combo for a Belgian strong ale. The taste is pretty spot on. At the first sip, you get welcomed by the sweetness of the malts, evolving in a bitterish body. The flavours are soft, smooth, sweetly enjoyable. The 9 percentage ABV does not feel that strong - although there definitely is an alcoholic warming ending - I expected it to be stronger, sharper. The subtle carbonation even makes this strong beer to a mild quencher. It also is less complex than I had it in my mind (I drank this years ago, at the launch or so) adding to this strong ale... A kind of dullness. Oh well, it just is a good flavoured, modest bodied, sweetened Belgian ale with a better nose than palate.
