Bottled, thanks Pallieter85! Cloudy golden, small head. Buttery sweaty grapefruit aroma. Dryish and full bodied. Fruity with syrupy mouthfeel. The hops are tired by now, but the finish remains really bitter.

A Struise beer that Travlr hasn’t had? Yes, please! Thank you secret santa. Pours apricot in color with a trim white head. Smells of sweat, canned peaches, and hops. Sweet in flavor with added notes of malt and Hawaiian Punch. Really enjoyed this.

Bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well. Deep yellow, modest turbid. Strong-spicy aroma. Starts not as stong as exspected, very spicy, notes of cinnamon, hoppy-grasy background. Also some lemon notes. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable for its strength. Good beer!

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large white head with good lace over a hazy golden body. Aroma of brandy, alcohol, grapes, caramel and an odd "smoothness"...something I cannot describe. Taste is alcohol, earthy, very dry, chalky, vanilla, pear, dried apricot, stone fruit. Very attenuated with creamy carbonation.
