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

This quadrupel has a moderate foam, which is rare for beer which is 12% alc. It smells very much of dried fruits, such as prunes, raisin and figs. The flavor is an elegant and very delicious composition of apricot, peach, raisin and prunes. Many times tastes quadrupels of dried fruits, but this XXXX tastes of fresh fruit, as aforementioned apricots and prunes. Hop bitterness is obviously reduced to the minimum, just like the type to be, but some spices, fresh herbs and a little taste of yeast together form the bitterness in this gem of a quadrupel. The alcohol gives a little tingling sensation in the mouth and it contributes to an abrupt awakening of all taste buds so all impressions allows full enjoyment. Definitely one quadrupel is top notch. It requires long-term enjoyment and great attention.

Rating #1089, flaske fra Voldby Købmandsgård. Brungul, grumset, flot skum. Lidt utydelig duft af fersken og hindbær, men til gengæld er smagen et sandt mekka af bær og tropiske frugter i hobetal. Ren nektar. Tyk, blød og cremet . En rigtig vellykket quadrupel!

Butelka, warka do 30/05/2019. Piana ladna, acru, szybko opadajaca, troche zostajaca na szkle. Barwa czerwonawo-brunatna, ciemna, na tyle ze ciezko ocenic, ze lekko metnawe. Aromaty slodowe i drozdzowe na pierwszym planie, do tego alkohol (a la cherry), lekkie skojarzenia z aromatem barley wine, sporo owocow ciemnych i kandyzowanych, troche karmelu, troche ziol, troche przypraw, nieco chleba - bardzo fajny aromat, ladnie ulozony. W smaku slodkie (choc moze nieco mniej, niz mozna by sie spodziewac), goryczka prawie niewyczuwalna, sa reminescencje wiekszosci aromatow. Czuc tez alkohol, choc jak na 12% dobrze zamaskowany. Rozgrzewajace. w posmakach dosc dlugich zostaje cos na ksztalt dosladzanych syropow na kaszel tyle ze z nalecialosciami przypraw (gozdzik? galka muszkatulowa?). W ustach lepkie, dosc pelne. Sumarycznie: wysmienite, choc do la trappe quad czy rochefort jeszcze troszke brakuje. jedno z tych, co chcialbym sprobowac wylezakowane kilka lat...

Uitgeschonken in 33 cl. De Struise bierglas, mooi donker, enigszins troebel amberkleurig bier met stabiele beige schuimlaag. Geur van kruidige hop, rozijnen en Belgische gist. De smaak is heel zacht en behoorlijk zoet met tonen van rozijnen, aardbeien, karamel, houttonen en chocolade, maar ook een wat licht zurig, tannine rode wijn/port smaakpallet. Gecompleteerd door een fraaie, en aangename kruidige en bittere hopsmaak. Het mondgevoel is zacht met een aangename zachte carbonatie, en een lange kruidige zacht bittere afdronk. Het alcoholpercentage van maar liefst 12% is zeer goed verborgen, totdat het bier verder opwarmt. Deze Struise XXXX behoort tot de beste Quadrupel bieren die ik geproefd heb tot nu toe. Misschien niet de meest complexe Quadrupel, maar wel een uniek zwaar bier van mijn favoriete brouwerij uit België, De Struise Brouwers.
