da questo momento in poi (cambio gettoni allo zbf 2013) comincia un vero e proprio delirio/declino..il birrificio struise diventa il mio principale punto di riferimento..e come potrebbe non esserlo??da quello che ricordo posso solo dire che su 4/5 birre assaggiate ognuna era un vero e proprio capolavoro..nel vero senso della parola..aromi impressionanti,complessi all’ennesima potenza..ogni sorso era un tripudio di sapori quasi impossibili da decifrare completamente ma che sicuramente meritano un altro assaggio..per la maggior parte ho assggiato birre scure,come questa..micidiale e il tutto servito alla spina insieme al GATTO LOPEZ :D zbf 2013

Drank 18-8 while Facebook-messaging. Smell is similar to Alesmith grand cru (alcohol, barrel-agnedness, sweet/bourbon). Really soft, sweet beer. Nice quadrupel. Bourbon taste is very nice and very present. Like this beer. Aftertaste is dominated by alcohol.

Shared with Wim and Bart at Wim’s place. Clear amber colored beer with small white head and medium carbonation. Fruited malty chocolate aroma. Medium sparkling and creamy palate. Finish is hopped sweet bitter slight dry and bit alcoholic. Nice one!

brnandersen (1866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Lovely, deep amber-golden colour with a small, dense white head. Sweet aroma with rich caramel malts, green apples, plums - ripe fruits. A slight hint of booze. Some syrup. A bit restrained. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body with a lively carbonation that is a bit disturbing to my palate. Cuts to much of the richness. Finishes sweet and fruity with some warmth from the alcohol. Okay Quadrupel - However, I had higher expectations to a beer from Struise.

rane (876) - Nibe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber with medium size dense pale brown head. Aroma a little weak, dried fruits and some alcohol. Taste dried fruits, sweet malts, raisins, bananas. The lack in aroma costs this beer a few points overall, otherwise nice-

Encore une merveille de derrière les fagots... Cette brasserie est littéralement insatiable (sans jeu de mots …). Une quadruple de 12 % abv, et 41 Ibu . Couleur roux clair, avec un tout léger voile de convenance. Bulles très peu nombreuses et d’ailleurs quasiment pas de gaz à l’ouverture. Mousse beige moyen qui vient napper finement, et on trouvera de longues jambes lors de la dégustation. Arômes de fruits mûrs, raisins secs, bois exotique, ceps de vigne, pointe de cannelle. 1ère bouche soyeuse, quasi huileuse, à la superbe entrée sur des pruneaux, du raisin noir et du blé noir. Arrière-bouche de malt et fruits mûrs. 2ème sur du miel brun, du malt caramel, du candi brun, sucre d’orge. 3ème sur du malt grillé, avec une pointe de tabac brun. Arrière-bouche très longue, à la texture huileuse. La longueur donne un grand fondu malt/fruits/bois. La chaleur se marque. Elle donne l’esprit d’un grand vin, avec des nuances sublimes. La levure est soyeuse, une très belle ligne. L’alcool est bien progressif, fort mais sans excès de chaleur. La finale est un pur régal. CONCLUSION : une bière qui mérite le respect, l’estime, l’appréciation sage. Comme dit le brasseur, elle est « alive and kickin’ »... Pour moi, cette quad est d’une grande noblesse, artistique et d’un esprit mystique...
