Color of this was absolutely beautiful golden orange haze. Intense fruit aroma and tartness. Never had a gruit before but this was incredible and I would definitely revisit.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with grain, earth, spice, herb, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour earth, spice, herb, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.

Serving type: bottle.
