Pinball (10846) - Copenhagen, - OCT 3, 2012
bottle from beer planet. very strong gusher, spilled quite a lot of beer in the sink (yep-opened it in the sink to begin with lol). cloudy yellow, smooth white head. quite dry, quite yeasty aroma, dusty, faint flowery and fruity notes too. Nice bitter-malty flavor, with some sweet notes, but also a yeasy spicy dryness to it. Perhaps a little bit too sweet. not at all like your ordinary blonde, much more yeast and caramelly malts in the flavor.

Alengrin (1743) - 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...

33cl flesje via slijterij Mans in Margraten Alcoholpercentage van 6% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig bier met dunne witte schuimkraag die direct wegtrekt Aroma en smaak: bitter droge afdronk, ruikt fruit zurig, gistig Conclusie: Aparte smaak, niet mijn favoriete combinatie. Heb lekkerder gehad van Struise, maar is ruim voldoende. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silvan7 (700) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle @ home. Giallo dorato, riflessi aranciati, velata. Schiuma bianca non molto abbondante, abbastanza fine , abbastanza persistente. Aroma floreale, camomilla, maltato, lievito belga, luppolato floreale. Gusto secco, poco amara, ben bilanciata dal maltato, abboccato. non molto complessa, risulta piacevolmente semplice al palato. armonica. poco carbonata, poco corposa e non molto calda anche se piacevolmente rotonda
