jbeatty (1211) - New York, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Backlog review, tasted early 2011. Pours hazy, burnt copper with thin head, abundant carbonation apparent. Fruity aroma, honey, citrusy hops in the background. Taste initially sweet, fading to pleasant bitterness with light honey to provide balance, alcohol not very noticeable. Medium body, becomes fairly smooth once the carbonation has a chance to die down. Decent.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma of malts, dried apricot and some bread. Flavour of caramel malts, nettles, dried fruits, dough-like yeastiness and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes sweetish and grassy. Decent.

330ml bottle from Bieresgourmet

Gusher alert! Pours dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of malts, notes of honey, spices, berries and ripe fruits. Taste is malty, stingy and bitter with hints of tart berries and fruits. Finish is malty, stingy and dry with hints of alcohol and tart berries. Unbalanced, quite messy.

100. rating for this beer!
Exploded from the bottle in the form of a foam. Aroma is sourish with apricot, some berries, nettles and biscuits. Flavour is somewhat tart with nettles, apricot, berries, biscuits and fruity notes. Hides the ABV rather well. Decent.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2012
(From notes 19 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Off-white (on the beige side) fluffy head. The beer is a hazy amber color. Aroma is some peach, fruity hops, sugar. Flavors peach and slightly bitter. Pretty soft on the palate. Finish is dry, bitter and some alcohol burn.

Overall, the aroma is nice, but otherwise a mediocre brew. I would have liked the flavors to have been more on the sweeter side. Unpleasant bitterness and some strange flavors (hard to specify). Might have to try this again to confirm, though.

gEUS (1507) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
shared by BelgBeerGeek during the epic beer tasting - pours dark orange with a white frotty head; aroma of caramel and clear madeira. Medium body, with the alcohol coming clearly through. Not my favourite Struise beer.

kraddel (4593) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2012
pours blonde, with brown at the end. so in the glass its blonde-brown, very hazy ( you cant see anything trough it ) onley a very small , common scnet. taste is sweet ( did they use honey?) , more carbonation than i’m used to of struise, but still very nice done. there’s also a little aftertaste, sweet and bitter. not the worse beer in the genre, but there are better too... thnx very much to belgbeergeek for this bottle !

HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
330ml bottle courtesy of harrisoni. Quite a gusher, once under control, it poured almost muddy brown-amber with a small but lasting drool of beige head. Very malty, caramel but not all that sweet - and ... and ... is that a crap-top of dry herbal bitterness? some alcohol? Taste - yep, malty and massively grassy/herbal - no idea of the alcohol on this ... sort of barleywine-ish. Thick, light carbonation, quite an interesting bitter finish. I really don’t know what to make of it - but I liked it!!
