2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl BB02/2014. - Pours a viscous dirty orange. Nose is heavy on sugary yeast right from the onset. Taste and palate dominated by heavy yeasts, liquid syrup, undefinable cloying spices, with alleviating citrus zest barely noticeable in the back. A disappointment only if you’d expect de Struise to stray from their heavy-laden, sticky recipes for this well-defined traditional style. Style rating should be much lower for this, only to do justice to genre-defining Wits like Blanche de Namur and even new Hoegaarden.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. A bad Struise beer? Possibly. Sweet, a tad boozy, loads of grains, little spiciness. Deep golden in colour, this beer has nothing to do with a Witbier and feels very poorly executed. Something you would not expect from this fine brewery. DIsappointing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pale, clear yellow beer with a small white head. Aroma is kinda faint, some citrus and wheat, light on the spices. Flavour is fresh, some red apples and lemon. Low carbo and a light mouthfeel. Decent wit, did expect more from Struise though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Monks Porter House.
Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma and taste of lime peel, hay, some light funk, spices and yeast. On the light side. Drinkable but far from the best one from Struise.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, bb 2/14. Hazy orange with a modest white head. Aroma of oranges, coriander, pineapple. Watery. Wheaty and dry with some oranges, coriander and white pepper. But really not much of anything. If this was anything it’s long gone.

Grande wit beer, nn sembra neanche tale. Corpo perfetto acida/dolce al punto giusto con un profumo floreale accentuato. Complimenti a de struise :)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Big yeasty and sugary aroma, but no spices. Honeyish pale straw color. Light sour lemon initial / mid goes straight ahead with mild citrusy notes / finish is light and a bit sour, with a mild sweet aftertaste. Thin-medium body. Nice enough. But I couldn’t catch any of the spices. Honestly, I expected a bit better from Struise.
