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.

Sehr trübes goldgelbes Bier mit einer mittelgroßen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, trockene Früchte, helles Malz. Geschmack leicht rauchig, trockene Früchte, Citrusfrüchte, interessant.

slowrunner77 (7884) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle from a coworker traveling abroad. They knew I liked the brewer, but this is weak sauce for them. A yeasty and sweetish fruity blonde ale. Ok by style standards but weak for Struisse.

330cc bottle. Pours hazy blonde with thin white head. Lots of yeast (kind of wet straw, barn) and spice, peppery notes. Also a bit lemony and floral. A very nice blonde ale.

visionthing (3888) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle from Struise Beershop, Brugge. Pours hazy golden with a decent and lasting, white head. Yeasty aroma with some slightly funky notes, fruits, herbs, citrus, spices and hints of barnyard. Moderate sweet with a bit too yeast dominated flavours, but also fruity, hoppy and pleasant with medium bitterness and some acidity. Medium(+) body with carbonation a little bit on the soft side. Certainly Belgian and certainly decent, but a bit too yeasty to be a favourite.
[Belgian beer #200]
