Note: Newest batch is dry-hopped with Cascade whereas earlier batches were dry-hopped with Amarillo.

Clear amber, light beige head. Mild aroma, passionfruit, some citrus and malt. Flavour has lemon and light malt and hints of yeast. Finishes with a citrusy sourness. Not bad. Well within BBD but probably not super fresh...

33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange/brown with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitter and subtle sweet tones. Caramel, malts, tropical fruits, pine and yeast. Nice!

Pours a hazy dark amber red body with rocky yellowish head. Aroma of peach, wheat, a bit of sulfur, grains and grapes. Taste of lychees, grapes and caramel. An unusual IPA. Soft carbonation light medium body with medium texture and long sour aftertaste.

martjoobolut (2620) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle, BB 08.17 (from beergium). Pours amber with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grass, caramel, sourness. Flavor is sweet and sour with some bitterness, slight acid, berries, grass, malt, pine. Finish is dry-pine bitter with some hot alcohol. Overall: possibly bit off despite the BB, but generally speaking it’s still ok beverage. Would like to try it fresh tho.

Cristobal37 (666) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
Looks like watered down coca-cola brown with very minimal head. Aroma is very unique like a belgian sour with lots of hops. Bitter piney hops mixed with a chocolate malty dubbel style beer. Quite odd actually. Even a tiny bit sour. Finish is mostly sappy hops and some vinegar. Well, up until now I have loved all the Struise beers Ive had, but this one is just strange. Cool that they do their own thing but in the end this just ends up being a weird hodgepodge of styles.

josanguapo (887) - SPAIN - JAN 21, 2016
From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not sure if contamined. No hops feeling nor aroma. Not much IPA. Initial and middle sip fine but some acid in the aftertaste. In some moments I thought that I got used to it and even liked its nose and other times I started disliking it again. Could repeat if sure of fressness. BB date was Aug 2017.

330 ml. bottle. Thanks Henrik. Pours a dark copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and caramel. Taste is citrus, malt, caramel, fruit, and alcohol. Interesting.

mariuspoenari (1103) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Dark copper, hazy, with a sticky head. Smells a bit like a dubbel, caramel, malt and Belgian yeast, with an addition of vinegar. Bitter, from the hops, with a metallic taste and with notes of cane sugar, vinegar, white wine.
