3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Slow gusher. Rich canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a small, creamy, moderately persistent white head. Plenty of straight up funk on the nose. Dusty, cellar like, slightly cheesy, bubblegum and leather. Extremely pleasent without feeling too "off". Quite fruity overall, both berries types and citrus. Surprisingly bitter, very dry, slightly acidic but not sour. Slightly sandy and definitely mineral. Malty, slightly yeasty and fruity aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Very interesting beer and quite tasty as well.

THX to Kraddel! 33 cl. bottle drank @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Now that I am no longer even remotely in competition with Kraddel for most Struise ratings, I get to try this one ;) Hazy orange, creamy white head. Smells of funk, lemon, hay, touch lambic-esque, hay, nice yeast. Tastes soapy with touch sour funk, dash lambiek, brett, wet hay, pepper, touch barn, something bit odd in the finish. Bit fizzy but very nice. Very easy to drink, this is great stuff & totally exceeded my expectations.

Bottled. Pours cloudy and pale golden with an average, lacing and white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, lemon zest, brett and citrus. Sweet flavor that ends up dry with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and average to lively carb. A lovely, funky and crisp blonde ale.

330 ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy yellow, orange hue and a thin fizzy white head. Intense yeast aroma, wet bread, malt and green hoppy characteristics. Medium body, very fine carbonation, overall on the bitter side, dry finish. Taste is citrus peel, wheat, white pepper and fresh pils malts. Easy-going beer for easy-going spring nights :-).

Pours pale in color with a white head and a bit cloudy. Smells like citrus and a bit sour. Also has a smell of a saison. Taste citrus and defiantly get that sour taste on the back of your tongue. Nothing to complex, but overall a good beer. Also had good lacing to it.

Bottle thnx to danko ! Cheers mate ! re-establishing my sweetspot in the list of Struise raters huray !
Pours very light blonde . Good white head .
Smell is very brett-forward .
Good carbo , realy refreshing, kinda sweet, brett , light mouthfeel ( but it definetly works )
For 5,5 ABV , this thing is a BIGASS joke . It has more taste than some 10 ABV beers , insanity we have arrived !
In short, way better than expected. I get the Orval-clone deScription, but this one is way better than orval to me ( which I still do not seem to appreciate up to its value it has to most others )
