Gruit

Ale

Experimentation doesn't mean new. With our Gruit, the latest Lips of Faith release, it's all about revisiting the ancient craft of bittering with herb mixtures, not hops (We put a few handfuls in because we have to or it can't be considered 'beer'). In here horehound, bog myrtle, yarrow, wormwood and elderflowers get together with rich malts to create a bitter, dry, velvet-like sweetness worth revering.
Visual

Hazy golden with light white foam and lacing.

Aroma

A heady mix of cloves, pineapple, and peaches, with spicy pepper notes and touches of tangerine.

Flavor

Sweetness from the malt, flowers and ale yeast that are balanced within the unusual bitter botanicals.

Mouthfeel/Body

Fizzy at first, it becomes smooth and creamy with a pleasant coating aspect. It finishes dry, with a light bitter and spicy linger. Medium-light body.
