Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2007
This beer has an extremely nice amber color and a huge, white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, caramel, spice and candy sugar. The flavour is smooth and full with sweet notes of caramel, candy sugar, fruit, citrus and a lot of it, in spite of the low ABV. Delicious and harmonic - yummi...

Sigmund (5462) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2007
33 cl bottle, courtesy of gunnfryd, who supplied it to our tasting. The ABV was 5.0%. Served at room temperature, which was too warm, and caused the beer to gush out of the bottle when opening. Reddish brown colour, decent head. Very nice aroma: oak, spices, leather, malts, fortified wine. Moderately spicy and malty flavour. Not bad!.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2007
Draft, a very nice and rather low alcohol beer. But still with a large taste. I love the struise beers

JoeinDahlem (1350) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2007
33 cL. Thickly hazy amber with lacy, off-white, fast-fading head. Yeasty aroma with some faint notes of sour apple, almonds, spices, metal. Flavor has some tart fruits that melt into mildly bitter hops, with a dry, bitter finish and aftertaste. Spicy hops and lively carbonation. Lots of character and good balance. Enjoyed it.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2008
pours a couldy amber with a tanish head, that leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted nuts, noble hops, and Struise yeast. Flavor is malty, yet dry, with a refreshing bitterness... somewhat piney. Also some what spicy tasting. palate is very active and fresh feeling. Another very nice beer from Striuse.
