KoNrRiI (826) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 0.33 bottle. Hazy, dark gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, yeasts, leather, barnyard, and a hint of alcohol. Taste is relatively sweet with pale malts in the forefront, some fruity notes later, and delicate sourness in the end. Medium body, a tad creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is delicate with the same leather, fruit, and pale malts as before. Overall the beer is good although it purports to be more than it really is.

33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Lightly hazy, deep golden colour with a thin, dense white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, sweet fruits - apricot, peaches - herbal hops and spices. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter - as claimed on label. A good fruitiness. Lovely Blonde with a good drinkability.

Leighton (14746) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle in the car, sourced from the Old School - March 2013. Pours lightly hazy gold with a moderate, foamy white head. Pale bready malts comprise the aroma, with accents of Belgian yeast and floral hops. Light-medium sweet flavor with modest dry biscuits, a bit of yeast, pale malts. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Drying on the finish with further biscuity malts, a bit of balancing bitter hay. Great balance. Very drinkable. Lovely.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
This was the Struise’s very first beer, a blonde session ale with a thick, off-white, sticky head leaving pretty lacing on the edge of the glass, and a deep peach blonde colour, slightly hazy at first but completely cloudy after adding the deposit; vivid sparkling. Quite strong aroma of orange peel, apricot, carrots, dried leaves, thyme, soapy hops, chamomille, honey. Neutral onset with strong carbonation and fresh citrus touches, pale malt sweetness, slick and somewhat thin mouthfeel, even a bit watery, soft spiciness in the finish, dry, well-balanced, long. Okay beer but what a difference with the long string of masterpieces they created after this...
