pivnizub (9012) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 14, 2013
Bottle(thanks to Rian!):Reddish-amber coloured, hazy, small off-white foamy layer, delicate woody-sourish nose, caramel, too; moderate sour-sweet flavour, quite light bodied for a beer of 7.0%, at least quite soft; shorter tart and sourish fruity finish, some nutty traces detectable. Good, but not completely convincing…

flip_soeperman (647) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
Aroma of red win barrels, some tartness, plum notes, brown, hazy, frothy, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, full body, oily feel, average carbonation. Some red fruits. Barrel aging very obvious and rustic.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2013
50cl bottle at home. Darker brown coloured beer, light carbonation and a medium but diminishing brown head. Lovely wooden sour oaky fruity cherry hinted aroma. Full almost oily texture. Finish is sour fruity with a longer sour oak dryer ending. Quite strong and special, going to the tart side but actually very nice.

Theydon_Bois (9944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottle at home, from Dranken Geers, 12/04/13. Pours a very dark shade of mahogony brown, vergeing on light black, with a handsome beige head that stays for the party. Nose is soured dark fruits, light balsams, slight metallic tinge, woody notes. Taste is dark fruit, sour apples and pears, light balsam, brown sugars, tarte red grapes, traces of booze from the barrel ageing. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a tarte finish. Not a world beating sour but a decent offering none the less and one I’d happily have again.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle, 03/27/2013. Pours deep maroon/brown, dense fizzy tan head and solid lacing, lots of carbonation still bubbling up. Aroma is plum, brown sugar and dark bread, light sour berry notes, vinous with maybe a touch of bourbon character coming through near the end. Taste is slightly sour, fruity balsamic and citrus glaze, plums and berries, grapes, finish turns towards light roasted malts and chocolate, vinous. Medium thick palate. Conceptually sounds great though doesn’t deliver in the end in terms of complexity and richness, but nice all the same standing alone.

JefVerstraete (1592) - Ghent, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2013
Dark brown, nice layer of foam. Soft carbonation. Complex taste. Bitter and sour, earthy aroma. Notes of vinegar, lime, herbs and unripe fruit. Medium body.

craftycarl21 (2254) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Thanks to GT2! Deep amber pour. Definite vinous tartness, hints of lime and red wine vinegar, unripe plum, touches of vanilla sweetness. Real downside is the palate, which is decidedly thin. Good, but definitely not my favorite from de Struise.

kermis (5743) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle shared with Deanso. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of red fruits, vinous, caramel, malt, light bourbon. Flavour is slightly acidic, moderate sweet. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. A slightly weird combination of barrels.
