COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Noordhoek Ostrich Farm and Resort has been offering visitors an oasis of silence, tranquility and green pasture since 1997. In 2001 we began offering our guests fresh, homemade ale, "Struise Witte" was born. The dutch word for "ostriches" is "struisvogels" or "Struise", but the same word can also mean "sturdy" or "robust". This "Robust White" is a living wheat beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and unpasteurized. Brewed with natural ingredients, bottle conditioned in 33 cl bottles.

Alengrin (2060) - BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
One of the three very first beers from this renowned brewery (along with Struise Rosse and Kloeke Blonde). From a 50 cl bottle, tasted at De Hopduvel café in Ghent when it was still open, I guess some ten years ago, this was my first encounter with the Struise Brouwers. Very thick, rocky, creamy, irregular, stable head; hazy golden blonde colour. Malty and wheaty aroma with green apple, citrus peel, iron and subtle coriander; malt sweet taste, soft and smooth mouthfeel, dried citrus and light coriander, very refreshing, yeasty, with low hop bitterness in the finish. In all a typical Belgian witbier, but artisanal and very well crafted, a very early (and still weak) echo of the works of art this brewery would later produce.

eduardovl (864) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle pored in a thumbler glass. A: Pours a cloudy golden yellow color forming a medium to small thin bubbled white head. Low retention and practically no lacings left S: Spicy and peppery. Notes of black pepper, orange zest and coriander. A bit grassy. Different from the traditional Belgian Witbiers. More sweet and malty in the nose T: Slightly sweet upfront. Sweet malts. A bit sour. Herby and spicy. Notes of orange zest, coriander, wheat, and bready yeasts M: Medium body. Low carbonation and a spicy and citrus aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Again, not a traditional Belgian Witbier but still a Struise [ BA Review @ 8/10/2013 ]

Struisen Witte on kellertävä, hieman samea neste ja muodostaa valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksu on korianterinen, sitruksinen ja kukkea. Maku on vehnäinen, sitruksinen ja pienoisen mausteinen. Kevyttä tavaraa. Struise ei koskaan petä. Ei tälläkään kertaa, mutta tämä ei ole lähellekään parhaita panimon tuotteita.

Douberd (2332) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
(Struise Witte) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a small tulip, ABV 5% Faded yellow colour on the body, mostly clear. Good sized but thin head, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, straw, some lemon, wheat. Taste of wheat, lemon, straw. Medium thin body, low carbonation. Nothing special but easy to drink and refreshing.

Excalibur123 (151) - Soria, SPAIN - AUG 18, 2014
Vierte amarillo bronce con gran cantidad de burbuja fina que forma media cabeza de espuma de retención escasa; aromas a fruta cítrica, especias, galleta y miel; en boca entrada muy suave y refrescante con notas ácidas, amargor muy suave; cuerpo ligero y bajo carbónico; una cerveza blanca de trigo fácil de beber.

Swaroga (1385) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Butelka 33cl. całkiem dobry witbier ale bez fajerwerków. To znaczy może dlatego, że nie jestem fanem witów. Na pewno lepszy od zwykłego koncerniaka o trzy głowy.

Een typisch witbier waar er zoveel van zijn in België en waar ik niet echt fan van ben. Dan zijn er betere.

kapusil (606) - HUNGARY - AUG 12, 2014
0.33l bottle. Hazy orange body, thin white head. Aroma of peach, berries, cloves and yeast. Taste of peach, lemon juice, bread and cloves. Not bad, but it’s not going to be my favourite wit.

Couleur jaune trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez agrumes, notes pailles et notes levures. Gout agrumes et levures, notes sucrées et céréales. Corps assez aqueux, fin très rapide.

2014.08 - 33cl - troebel geel gekleurd bier, vrij kleine witte schuimkraag - neus : beetje grassig, tarwegeur op het achterplan (ik vermoed dat ik bij een blinde tasting bij de geur eerder op een pintje zou afgaan) - mond : start zurig, citrus, gist
