Not a real gruit. cloyingly sweet. Not my cup of bog droppings.

Pours brown with honey hues and a bit hazy at first. Then falling to a nice clear look but with no bubbles to remain. Nose is spicy and a little breaddy. Sweet herbal and earth. Dark fruit and spice.

Drinks mellow with spicy herbal and a tinge form the bog myrtles bitterness. Malt is rolling and lush with a little toastiness. A touch of honey and this finishes well with sweet herbs and lots of spice. Surprisingly fruity middle and slightly bitter. The brewers notes mention cola and it does have a nutty cola like taste. Finishes malty. Carbonation is a bit light. Any less bubbles and it would have been syrupy. Slower on the palate than hops but the bog myrtle was lovely and digestive in flavor.
