From tap at Beer Temple during the second brett days. Pours murky brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has a bit of caramel, oak, lactic acid, quite rodenbach like. Taste also has oak, caramel, lactic acid, bit too sweet for my liking.

Holy cow, great sour, on tap at Library Alehouse. Lots of cherries, dark and reminds me of Consecration

Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of red wine and balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruit. Green apple, spice, lemon, and a bit of spice. Nice sourness. Decent acetic notes, but still a nice lactic quality. Lemon, green apple, raisin, cherry, and plum. Brown sugar and caramel sweetness, oak, and maybe a hint of spice.

4 oz. served into a wine glass at ChurchKey. From notes; 2009 vintage. A: Pours a dark brown color thatís perhaps a bit murky. The head is a one finger khaki shade. I even note some legs on the glass, even though itís only 7%. S: There is some acetic sourness, but itís very mild. What I notice more are some notes of dark fruits, buttery oak, and even touches of cocoa powder. Once I get used to the fact that itís not very sour, I like it a lot. T: Just like the nose suggested, the tartness is restrained - and it becomes even more so as this is consumed. Itís actually more sweet/fruity than tart on the opening and middle, with augmenting touches of caramel. It finishes with a good amount of dry cocoa powder and vanilla. The lack of significant sourness allows these other notes to come out well, giving it a more approachable complexity than others. M: The finish is very chocolaty yet dry, aided by middling carbonation. It feels very substantial without being too heavy, which helps its drinkability even more. O: This wonít particularly please anyone looking for big tartness - at the most, itís only about 2/10 sour. Rather, this is beginner-friendly yet with enough of an augmenting barrel note to make less cynical sour ale drinkers more than happy. Myself, I really enjoyed this.

Pouring at The Festival in Portland with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond. Pours a rather clear ruby brown with a thin white head. Soft funk, malt over fruit and wood. Tangy, fruit, chewy yeast. Distinct Flemish notes, light sweet with nice dry tannins. Soft wood and bugs on the finish.

Mortlach (1453) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 29, 2013
29/06/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fŗ (tap). Bruna, riflessi rubino-miele di castagno, impenetrabile, schiuma bianca fine, abbondante e persistente. Al naso frutta rossa, alcol, solvente. In bocca malto, ancora frutta rossa, note di botte, alcol, lascia la bocca impiastricciata. Corpo medio-alto, carbonazione leggera. Impegnativa e un poí sgraziata, si fa fatica a finirla.

jmgreenuk (6189) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 29, 2013
Tap at the Kulminator, Antwerp. Poured a dark brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is of mild citrus fruit. The flavour is medium sour and a little acidic on the palate. I liked this but its not the best from Struisse for me.

Vaiz (4047) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle at home. Black pour, huge creamy tan head. Aroma of some wood, balsamic vinegar, red fruits, cranberry and red wine. Flavor is slightly sour, quite fruity, some varnish and oak. A bit messy, but also quite interesting.
