On tap from the Struise Tap Trailer at Haand Festival 2013
Copper clear, white head. Smells of fruity esters, oak, rye, dark malts, some dark fruits and hints of hops. Heavy sweet, super malty, port influence, nice dark fruits again. Super oily texture, super smooth mouthfeel. A fantastic beer; one of the best from Haand Festival this year.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at ’het Schooltje’ Oostvleteren. I always imagine that the quality of the beer deteriorates a little because it’s kept for a longer time in the ’tap trailer’. Though amazing idea!
Rio Reserva ’Rogge’ edition.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, nice head, but unstable.
Nose: very fruity, flowery, hops, some alcohol, some grains.
Taste: fruity aroma, alcoholic finish, clear hops, subtle bitterness, alcoholic hints, little like a cognac, very sweet in total.
I had the Rio Reserva 75cl bottles, original edition. In my mind it tasted a lot better. I hope to taste the real thing again soon.
