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.

Pours a cloudy yellow. Nose is lemon, citrus, clove and yeast. Flavor is a refreshing citrus, grassy and a pleasant sour tartness. This is my favorite wit on earth.

ClubGonzo (4240) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Tasting glass at Pannepot Cafť @ De Struise Brouwers, Oostvleteren. Pours a hazy straw yellow, topped by a big white head - very inviting indeed. Nose is oats, sweet malts and hints of citrus. Much more aroma than in most wits. Taste includes more citric flavors as well as hay, grain and traces of nutty cereals. Fluffy, light aerial body which is super-drinkable. All in all delicious, and one of the best witbiers Iíve tasted.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 this beer can compete with many others, has a fantastic flavour and gives you the pleasure of drinking the same beer over and over and over again. Aroma is spicy, notes of orange and coreander.

bibi (18) - De Panne, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2005
Served very cold at The Coffeehouse Prestige in De Panne, near the French border. Hazy pale yellow grapefruite peel coloured wheatbeer with a rocky white creamy froth ( As big as it gets!!! ). Nice lemony aromas with outspoken wheatness in the nose with touches of herbs, white bread and yeast. Refreshing mouthfeel with nice wheaty taste and smooth touches of ricecracker and fine citrus accents.. What a beer!
