Ulysse (270) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
Very enjoyable in the mouth which start to believe is a trademark of the remarkable struise brewery. A very gentle and shy beer. Tasty nonetheless.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl à Molenhof Restaurant & Bar Oud Postje, couleur rouge, peu de mousse effervescence peu présente. Une bière avec une grosse odeur de houblon noble citronnée, continuité sur le pruneau et fin de bouche raisin.

Renobob (1113) - Besançon, FRANCE - DEC 24, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Très bonne biere à l'arome principal de pruneau. A peine sucrée en fin de bouche mais bien équilibrée pour l'amertume du houblon. Good !

veceo (733) - CROATIA - DEC 14, 2014
Cloudy brown color, average sized off white head. Aroma is malty, fruity with some hop notes. Not exactly your usual IPA aroma. Taste is also malty with lots of oranges, figs, spices (cinnamon & coriander). More sweet than bitter, I would say. Body is medium to full and carbonation is average. Interesting and definitely good.

ghendrix (140) - Cardiff, WALES - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle, pours orange-brown, hazy, huge carbonation, lost some to the table, but tall cream head is the result. Aromas of sweet fruits, pine, grass, grapes, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light-medium bitter. Lively and round mouthfeel, medium body. Alcohol doesn’t feature in the tasting, which is impressive. A good brew, pity it exploded so violently out the bottle.
