Original GruitGruit Ale • 6.3% • Gruit Series
Original Gruit harkens back to the roots of gruit production by employing three of the most common historical ingredients in the brew: Labrador tea, bog myrtle and yarrow.
History & Style
Beau’s Gruit Series takes inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition; a time before the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516 that declared that all beer be made solely with barley, hops, and water. In gruit ale, herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character, throwing open the door to experimentation. Each gruit in this series will have a unique combination of ingredients and flavours.
This deep gold, slightly hazy gruit has a mildly citrusy, herbal aroma with some malt notes. The flavour is balanced between malty sweetness and herbal bitterness. The finish is medium-long with lingering tannins and a hint of spice.
