jmgreenuk (4002) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at the RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak malt and yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, alcoholic liquorice, rich red berry fruit and a smooth palate and finish. A fine beer from Struise but not their best by far.

caesar (4890) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2013
Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Caramel, toffee, spicy belgian yeast, reminds me of a La Trappe Quadrupel. Bit sweet in taste, some alcohol. Quite enjoyable actually.
