Bottle at Craig’s tasting. Hazy golden, tart, light toffee, sweet, barrel aging really mellows it out.

zimbo (553) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Huge head and very refreshingly sour. Pure and long with an intense floral zestiness. Long and lightly rich. An outstanding example of how to handle and use a bourbon barrel without letting the barrel dominate.

15.02.2014. 0,75l Bottle. RBNG-14. Pale yellow whitish colour with white head. Sour wheaty aroma. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Flavours of wheaty malts dominated by sourness. Very fresh and sharp beer.

BeerBaboon (1555) - FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Pours gold with white head. Aroma is bourbon, acidic, earthly and apple. Flavour is sour, bourbon, wood. Something from the original is missing but the aging has brought some earthliness, wood, vanilla and bourbon into the palette. Very good but perhaps not as good as the original.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle sample @ RBNG-14. Hazy yellow body, small white head. Aroma is mild citric tones, bourbon, hay, straw and hints of vanilla. Taste is mellow straw, citrus, wood, vanilla, coconut and hints of lactic sourness. Watery body, medium carbonation. Not the best from Struise.

Cloudy pale golden color with a big white head. Citric,yeasty and acidic fruity aroma. Medium + body. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Balanced fresh citric, acidic, yeast and some sour fruity notes in the flavor. Lovely ale!
