15/IX/2012 on tap @ Struise Schooltje (Oostvleteren) - BB: n/a (2012-1031) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the beers!

Clear dark brown beer, aery beige to brown head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sour, bit vinous, earthy, tobacco, lactobacillus, Rodenbach foederbier a-like, some (balsamic) vinegar. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sour start, lemony, sour cherries, red sour berries, some vinegar. Aftertaste: very sour, lemon acidity, little bitter, some chloride, red berries, tobacco. I like this one a lot, even if it will increase my reflux tonight. Don’t care! :p

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Sample @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pours hazy reddish golden with a big frothy pinkish offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and sour with sour cherries, cherry pits, lemon juice, barnyard, wheat crackers, hay, grapefruit juice, lemon zest, vinegar and hints of gastric acid. Taste is intensely sour with lemon juice, sour cherries, grapefruit juice, gastric acid, barnyard, lemon zest, cherries, gooseberries, unripe currants, wheat crackers and subtle hints of sour milk. Mouthfeel is mouthpuckering, tart, dry and medium bodied. Finish is tart and sour with sour cherries, lemon juice, hay and lemon zest. One of the sourest beers I’ve ever had. Burns your insides but in a good way. I find it quite good but can see how it would be enjoyed in rather small quantities. I especially like how I was warned buy the Struise crew when I ordered this :)

On tap at the school house. I really enjoyed this one! Slight cherries in the sip, but the sour is so subtle, you might miss it if you hurry!

Draft @ Struise School. Brune, col crémeux beige voire moka. Arôme présente un bouquet nettement plus centre sur le malte avec un caramel doux et ce côté cerise aigre qui reste en retrait. Palais présente une aigreur de cerise très légère entrecoupée par une certaine douceur maltée-caramel Ce cote aigre funk se fait plus présent une fois à la mi du verre. Reste facile à approcher, mais loin de ce que Struise a déjà produit dans ce style.
