Red coloured beer with a white foam head. Medium carbonation. Malts in the aroma, Malt in the taste and nothing but malts in the aftertaste. This pretty much sums up this beer. Malty, but very well done and beatifully even beer. great job.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Amber ale by Struise, made at Deca and belonging to their very first league of beers, from even before the famous Pannepot. Off-white, loose, sticky head, pure amber colour, lightly hazy. Nutty and caramelly malts in the nose, softly sourish wheat, oats, ginger, cloves, grapefruit, peach, dried orange peel. Soft fruity onset, a subtle honeyish presence without becoming actually sweet, subtle acidity adding refreshment and spicy and nutty middle and end phase, with mild herbal hop bitterishness in the finish as well as a certain yeastiness. Nice artisanal beer, but quite clearly not yet at the same height as their later masterpieces.

mgajdaczewa (571) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
W aromacie karmel, trochę kandyzowanych owoców, i wyraźna żelazistość. W smaku dziwne jak na styl, wysoka, czesko - pilsowa goryczka, brakuje kontry słodowej, brakuje nut od drożdży, jest nieco śliwki węgierki ale to nie ratuje sytuacji. Chyba miałem pecha, wadliwy egzemplarz. Albo słabe piwo.

AdamJackson (2786) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Dark red. Light fluffy head. Mild cherry and bread dough aroma with herbal clove. Sweet up front, mild taste. Not a lot going on. Fig and raisin juiciness definitely a fruity finish. Not bad
