DrSilverworm (9439) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2013
On tap at Dutch’s. Very dark brown / red color. Thin brown head. Plenty lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Full texture. Lightly slick body, but more dry in the finish. Nice vinous dark fruit notes, get a lot of that barrel, and a nice light bit of vanilla. Some chocolate, and nuttiness. Good tasrt taste, light sweet. Solid, full-bodied, barrel-aged sour. Enjoyable and complex.

b3shine (7391) - Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a cloudy brown with foamy head somewhere between off-white and light beige. Smells solid; tart and funky with notes of cherry and Wild Turkey. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. I hate Wild Turkey, and it brings this beer down IMO.

tiong (5584) - 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 (3571) - 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 (4195) - 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
