A bad surprise with a Struise beer. Maybe it's because I always keep my expectations at very high levels for anything that comes from them. The beer pours a cloudy dark amber. The head quickly dies down to a thin collar. It smells slightly sweet with notes of caramel. Not really sure about what happened but after one or two sips it seemed to me that taste moved to almost-insipid and the smell disappeared.

Une rousse de fermentation haute refermentée, avec 3 céréales dont 2 maltées. Couleur roux soutenu. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout. Mousse beige claire qui nappe. Arômes de raisins, prune, poire, pêche, brugnon, avoine. Grande prise de bouche assez liquoreuse mais avec des épices. Arrière-bouche sur des fruits noirs, bois rouge, sapin. 2ème avec un côté vineux assez prononcé, ainsi que des tanins intéressants. 3ème à la texture lisse, sur un ensemble de fruits noirs, vin rouge avec une pointe d’épice. Arrière-bouche longue. La longueur baisse un peu en intensité, mais les arrière-bouches sont très élaborées. La levure est boisée, fibreuse, précieuse. L’alcool vient soutenir la longueur sans rechigner à l’ouvrage. La finale navigue entre le vin et la bière. Le malt devient raisiné.... CONCLUSION : cette bière est l’exact contraire de la banalité. Elle pose pas mal de questions sur la proximité vin / bière. Elle élève vraiment le niveau du débat.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Red with sediment in bottle. Red berry, slight sweet malty nose with some belgian yeasty flavours. Medium light body that feels a lot lighter ABV- wise than what the label informs me. Some vanilla, some almost raisiny or cola-like malts. And yes, red berries. Ok beer. Has that belgian vibe that makes it interesting even though it really doesn’t deserve to be. An amber ale. By struise. Fine, but I guess I was expecting more.

NordicV (1086) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2013
Flaska från 2007. En del mögel på etiketten. Viss vit fällning under korken. Rubinröd öl nästan utan skum. Doften är lätt sur med mycket bärighet och aningen kola. Detta återkommer i också i smaken även om bärigheten är lite mindre uttalad och det finns en del maltighet och jäst.

Robyn rood bier met creme kleurig schuim. Aroma van caramel, zoete rode fruittonen. Smaak is wat wrang, zoet en licht buttertje in de afdronk. Voelt romig rond aan in de mond. Body had wat meer pit mogen hebben.
