2008 version at LCRBM08. 8 3 8 4 19
Bottle, 10.0%. I do not know what year it is from, but it states BB 2013. Gusher! Good vanilla aroma, rather boozy, but nice. Murky dark amber colour, seems almost clear but has a massive amount of yeast chunks whirled up by the gushing. The flavour is sweetish with some vanilla, cigarbox and a little dried fruit. Good alcohol level to balance. Great mouthfeel in spite of the seemingly high carbonation. 7 2 8 4 18

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Large almost creamy like off-white head. Excellent lacing. Body was light cloudy with a sparkling look. Color was orange-amber. Aroma was at first sniff kind of surprising. Somewhat milky acidic hits my nose. Almost yogurt natural like. Strange experience, but not in a bad way at all. I let it sit for some time and other note appears. Notes of fruit, spicy, smoke, perfume, yeast, citrus, sweet orange peel, caramel with an acidic twist. Does that make any sense? Full bodied with an average carbonation and a light alcoholic texture. Flavor was for me somewhat mixed with notes of moderated sweetness, some light notes of acidic and hints of bitterness. Very complex flavor. Finish ends with some acidic and sweetness. Bizarre but excellent experience. Am I really the only one getting the experience of some milky acidic here. Hmmm maybe I am way off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap@Kulminator - LCRBM2. Cloudy orange, big creamy lacing head. Light dusty fruit aroma. Deceptively light on the palate, fruity, a bit salt, a herbal edge - hides its strength very well. Was perhaps slightly on the green side when we tasted it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 A Mes rate: Draught at ZBF.
Hazy gold colour with a vivid straw head. Honey and peach with a little white wine and sugar in the aroma. All of a sudden there is obvious ginger in the mouth with some orange and everything else already noted in the nose. Palate is gently prickly and rather good indeed. Finish is delicately sour then sugared with a very brief but clearly noticeable hit of liquorice and hops. These Struise brews can do no wrong.
