Drank it at Struise’s school in Oostvleteren. It’s a brilliant mix of double IPA and barley wine. Taste is smooth and strong hoppy, yet with a deep complex glow.

Draft @ ’t Schooltje – thx! for the ride tderoeck! Clear amber, lacing white head. Nose is huge fruity brett, orange peel, apple, tangerine, spices, some candy,… Taste is oranges, spices, fruity brett – brett profile is comparable to other Struise brews – slightly sticky, candy, caramel, candy sugar, touch caramel & toffee, hint horseblanket,.. Body is both somewhat syrupy & dry. Better than the original. Excellent.
