tiong (5407) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2013
500ml bottle from Beer-city

Pours gusher, dark brown with a foamy white head. Aroma of wood, dark ripe berries, fruits, spices and oaky vanilla notes. Taste is vinous, sweet, oaky, woody and sour with hints of tart berries, spices and vanilla. Finish is sweet and vinous, complex and heavy with wooden notes, hints of tart ripe berries and oaky vanilla. Quite complex, a bit unbalanced though.

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle from Brussels. Had no idea this was Struise made. Surprisingly dark brown pour with a nice brown head and just a touch of lacing. Big aroma of sour cherries, dark malt, and maybe a little spiciness. Tart sourness at first but then it mellows into some sweeter maltiness. Honestly the flavor is lighter/thinner than expected but it really develops as it warms and brings out some almost coffee notes. Tasty

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Tap @ Stumbling Monk, Seattle... Poured deep, brownish mahogany with a moderate khaki head. Some acid and oak on the nose. Nice sourness, but tame. Acidity and over-ripped fruits, sour cherry pie, with wood, candied sugars, sour patch kids, some chalky, charred grains, and lactic character in the finish. Great drinking sour beer

omhper (21894) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2013
Draught at SBWF. Hazy mahogany colour, mid sized head. Mild vinous tart nose. Near full bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Acetic with some white pepper. Lemon, wood and red wine dominates. Lovely beer, but the Reserva is even better.
