Bottled 750ml (PBF IX)
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Slightly tart, citrusy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Very fruity but same time dry flavor. Citrus, light barnyard, some sweetish notes. Slick palate. I can’t trace much of bourbon here but interesting it is.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

Flavour of rich orange zest notes, brett, some floral notes, wood, mild bourbon notes, butterscotch and sourness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Bourbon does not work with the base beer.

Aroma is sourish with white wine, apricot and some bourbon notes. Also grapefruit. Flavour has some white wine notes, bourbon, vanilla and some fruity tones. Feels acidic. Quite bland on the flavour side, I liked the basic Struiselensis much more.

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.
