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.

aletcm (106) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 31, 2014
Cor laranja com espuma de pouca formação e boa persistência. Aroma de malte predominante, fermente e casaca de laranja ao fundo. Sabor maltado, com médio dulçor e baixo amargor. Cítrico ao fundo. Não é uma autêntica witte mas é refrescante. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a murky amber color with a small and quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of yeast and fruits. Primary taste is citrussy, but has a complex fruity flavour with notes of wheat, grass, yeast and various spices. Pretty full body for a witbier. Dry, citrussy and a bit sour aftertaste. Not really my kind of beer but okay, although I probably shouldn’t have let it warm up as much as I did.

weark (222) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge - Orange Amber color, no foam - Vinous, yeasty, wheat aroma - weird vinous, malty, hints of caramel - medium body, sweet, flat carbonation - not good, try 3 bottles to be sure but there is something wrong, infection or it’s really not for me

euromance (18) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
Amber colour, small white head. Not a really nice look. Flat nose of mandarin, yellow fruit and coriander. Full body taste of wheat, slightly sour, herbs and mandarin. Long lasting taste that is much better than one would expect from nose and look.

KyotoLefty (5914) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle at Molenhof. Citrus, light spice, clean and not too sweet. A rather dry version of the style, which I like. Refreshing and crisp. Solid Wit.

fkoolen (144) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy ale-like colour with a slim but creamy head. Nose with citrus- and sweet fruits, honey, caramel, wheat and malts. Taste is round and fresh with the mentioned notes and without any (big) bitterness. Firm body with medium carbonation. Good flavours without high alcohol grade: it’s a very nicely drinkable beer.
