Kolejny, fantastyczny trunek otrzymany od Hopestera. Jest to kolejne piwo z Browaru De Struise, o którym złego słowa nie można powiedzieć! Czerwonobrunatna barwa z lekko beżową pianą. Aromat bardzo przyjemny - kwaśne, czerwone owoce, nieco paloności. W smaku słodko-kwaśne, ze sporym akcentem owocowym. Przyjemnie rozgrzewający alkohol. Bardzo ciekawe, bardzo udane piwo. Nie pierwsze z tego browaru!

Bottle, 2011 vintage, pours red-ish brown with a disappeatring beige head. Aroma: wood, red wine, red fruit, a bit of dust. Taste: wood, red wine, cocos (?), balsamic vinegar (a touch), cherries, berries, vanilla. Medium sweet and sour, very well balanced, creamy texture, complex, full body, average carbonation. Dry tart woody finish. Great balance, lovely beer!

langeveld12 (292) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2015
The barrel ageing adds complexity and subtlety to this sour ale. It's smooth, fruity and vineous and the tannins seem to soften it all. It takes away the sharpness and the tartness of the sour ale. Gets better every sip. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guiroul33 (247) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle 33cl @ Nuetniegenough. Vinegar, red wine, coca cola, oak,... A Great example of oud bruin, with the oak aged complexity on top.

fkoolen (564) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home, Reserva 2011. Deep burgundy red colour, beige foamy head. Rich roasted malty, fruity and vinous nose and taste. Very complex and deep with tones of calvados and ripe apples, red fruits and sour cherries, balsamico, cask and vanilla, some herbal notes. Big aftertaste, endlessly lingering fruity tardness. Medium carbonation, palate gets completely covered by the big body. Amazing, top notch in one of Belgian’s finest beer styles.

King_Alex_II (523) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Brown clear color with beige foam. Light, but boozy barrel like smell. Ultra foamy mouth feeling with sour taste in the back and barrel aged bread on the tip of the tongue. Dry and partially sour aftertaste.

anstei (278) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 9, 2015
2011 vintage bottle from Beers’n’more. Pours dark ruby. Aroma of dried plums. Heavy and full taste. Not typical, but delicious!

SinH4 (944) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Vintage 2011. Dark brown color with amber highlight and tan head. Sweet fruity flavour, fermented prunes, red berries, dark fruits, balsamico, oak, the wine barrel gives a heaviness. Taste is oaky, sweet-sour, lots of berries, nice warming tart finish. Superbly balanced, super-easy to drink for such a complex beer. Amazing, I love it! (drank at just a little bit below room temperature)

hawthorne00 (2772) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle. Pretty much black with a light tan head that soon fades to the rim. Aroma of berries, oak, cider and balsamic vinegar, stems. A bit more than a hint of nail polish remover, but even a little bit is a problem when it makes you recoil. Sour but with lush fruit and quite intense caramel, oak, stems and some herbal notes. Hard to rate - nearly great but not right.

TheCametron (2086) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle number #2 at Bierboom. Pours dark Red Brown with a thin tan head. Sweet and sour aroma. Vinegary and sourish with a spoiled fruit sweetness. Nice tangy fruit sweetness with plenty of acidic, tart flemish red character and plenty of wood. Very interesting.
