Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 14
Gruit (Lips of Faith) – New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) ABV 6.6% 3.7 out of 5 – Ancient Ale bittering the beer with Herbs. Herbs used in this beer are Horehound, Bog Myrtle, yarrow, wormwood, and elderflowers.
The Color is a bright golden yellow and lots of carbonation with a thick white head and the lacing washes away pretty quickly. Scent is funky, malty and floral. Taste is bright, bitter and dry. A light bitter herb flavor. This ale is very different but grows on you after a glass or two
