3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, best before 31 May 2014, bought from Dranken Geers. Hazy dark amber colour with a big fluffy off-white, tending towards beige, head. Strong spicy, tangy hop aroma with some herbal, nettley notes. Hops are more bitter than aromatic on the palate. Firm mouthfeel but rather light bodied with lingering herbal notes on the finish and lasting into the aftertaste. Tasty and enjoyable but not quite a blockbuster.

Bottled. Amber colour, huge foamy off-white head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is rather richly hopped grassy, floral and fruity along with some mild notes of malts and slight sweetness. Flavour is very fruity, floral with also some sweet malts and alcohol. Very bitter, but yet quite easy drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. Deep dark orange/amber pour with a huge white head. Lacing on the glass. IPA aroma with fruits, grapefruit, citrus and hops. Nice IPA taste with the fruits and hops again. Not extremely bitter but still provocative. Enjoyed this one a lot. Very nice brew from (and what else could you expect) from the Struise Brouwers!
