Encore un brassin merveilleux des Struise Brouwers, élaboré chez Deca à Vleteren. On se prend à rêver de tomber dans cette marmite pour y passer la nuit. Fabuleux. Une authentique blonde catégorie 3 de 6 % abv, en medium dry à levures multiples. Fermentation haute, non filtrée, non pasteurisée. Couleur jaune citronné. Léger voile trouble très joli. Bulles fines en colonnes partout. Mousse blanche qui tient à 3 mm environ, très jolie. Arômes de houblon, fleurs blanches un peu surettes, citron, coriandre, girofle, épice fine. 1ère bouche souple sur un bel ensemble houblon, malt, levure. Arrière-bouche très fraîche, équilibrée, mais sur une dominante épicée. 2ème bouche à la très belle texture, à l’équilibre plus grand, avec un malt plus présent. Le côté citronné fin vient en arrière-bouche. 3ème bouche sur une levure de type trappiste, avec une amertume qui rappelle l’Orval. Arrière-bouche superbe. La longueur entame sur l’Orval, poursuit sur une levure d’enfer, et termine sur du houblon d’un caractère fleuri exceptionnel. La levure, on doit plutôt dire les levures, sont d’exception. Un grand moment. Un très grand cru. L’alcool bien que de 6 % fait un travail exceptionnel .. il faut dire qu’il doit se régaler le bougre, tout comme moi d’ailleurs. La finale fait atteindre les étoiles à quelques bières-lumière de nous. CONCLUSION : du savoir-faire, un produit d’exception, un brassage infini, de la qualité à revendre, du magnifique à la pelle. Ce genre de bière vous fait rêver purement et simplement.

Hazy yellow color, white foamy head. Spicy middle, vanilla and citrus (grapefruit) notes. Tight light bitter. Medium body and smooth texture. Some character and a classy beer.

Vignale (3317) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Disig gyllengul vätska med lågt vitt skum. En torr, stram, frisk blond med mycket geuzefunkighet. Lätt syrlighet, småbubblig, lätt stram beska med aningen grapesmak. Färskt trä, grape, druvskal, lite gröna tanniner. Det här är riktigt riktigt bra. Sammanfattar på många sätt det unika med den belgisk ölkulturen. Stor öl i litet format.

Dark gold beer with thick lasting white head. Delicate hop aroma. Lots of light fruits, citrus notes. Attractive. Bit of biscuity malt. Sharp in mouth to start and then it softens. Delicate hop finish.

Sharp in mouth to start and then it softens. Delicate hop finish. I really like this. It has subtlety and elegence. Well done to all at Struise for another good beer. Fruits in particular are lovely.

Very fizzy, orange beer with nice foam. Sweet aroma with herbs, cereal. Taste isn’t as sweet. Medium bitterness and sourness as well. Very nice aftertaste. Tasty beer; expensive though. (33cl bottle, 3,25 EUR)

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
This beer is super carbonated pouring a hazy medium honey gold. A four finger wheat head gushes out, lasting several minutes and with good retention. The head is very creamy and puffy. The aroma is strong and complex. The first thing that hites you is some nice spiceness, with some sweet honey, and a nice yeasty finish. The taste is pretty good, its starts off pretty yeasty with some floral notes then has a nice bitter finish. The feel is very carbonated but a little light.

Hermod (6414) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2011
33cl bottle, BBE 09/2011. Poured hazy amber with a nice lacing, beige head that stays forever. High carbonation. Lovely spicy and fruity hoppy aroma, citrus and orange along with some yeasty notes. Flavor is similar, yeast, malt, hops, coriander. Dry very bitter finish with a spicy touch to it. Very well balanced, lovely beer.
