UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Bottle. Very nice champagne sweet nose, apple esters and slight sourness. Clear golden with a thick fluffy white head leaving nice lacing. Wonderful palate, smooth as silk bringing grape and honey notes, finishing extremely clean.

The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 35. This bottled brew from the ’t Brugs Beertje pub in Brugge poured a unnoted head that left behind a dark black brown colored semi-opaque body and an excellent lacing. It had a dark malt molasses aroma with a strong port like vinous note. The mouth feel was good and smooth initially then finished with a strong vinous note. The flavor was also port like strongly vinous and malty. Hmm, I had this with Joris and his description seems to be different than mine. I wonder if we got one switched around?

Amber pale ale color. Sweet and medium bodied with soft, mouthfeel. Pleasant and somewhat unusual.
I’ll prefere de struise witte.

Had at Cambrinus in bruges on 6/21. Pours medium amber with a medium white head. Floral aromas domionate, but additional notes of spice and yeast are detectable. Really like the taste, which has striong, but not dominant, vineous notes. Very well balanced. Very nice beer.

Bottle shared by grimreeser. Pours orange with an off white head. Great nose of sweet banana and belgian esters. Lighter side of medium bodied. Nice light citrus, banana, and nutty flavors, but not too heavy. Refreshing but full of flavor. Great session beer

Bottle at Monks Cafe in Stockholm. Poured a hazy golden liquid with a medium foam, had some yeast at the bottom. Looked very appealing. It had a smell of orange and other citrus fruit, a bit "stingy" on the nose. The taste surpised me at first, it was sour, sweet and fruity with hints of druid orange. Very interesting beer and I enjoyed it.
