A barley wine brewed in the English style. Struis is a full-bodied beer with a deep, dark colour and a soft, long-lasting head. The aroma is dark and sweet, with clear tones of chocolate and dried fruit. The aftertaste is dry and long-lasting, and leaves you yearning for more. A delicious accompaniment to food and ideal with skeapsrond cheese. Struis is only available as a bottled beer.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2008
A characterful beer with an interesting tartness to it. Bottle at the Wildeman. Pours cloudy amber-brown with beige, lacy head. Nose is fruity and tart with an odd chemical edge like Sweet Tarts candy. Taste is both sweet and tart, fruity, with a moderately bitter kick that goes bone dry like a big saison. Funky.

Odd little beer, at first I thought it was from Struisse, too bad it might have been better. all in all this was a strong belgian w/ out much else to say about it.. very drinkable but nothing to write home about.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. It pours a hazy dark orange body with a diminishing, foamy beige head. Yeasty, sourish, barnyeardish and fruity aroma with a little spicy touch and some weak dried fruits. Fruity, sourish, barnyardish aroma with yeast, spices and some malt in the background. A little touch of caramel and some chocolate as well. Full-bodied, effervescent and a bit tongue-twisting from the brett. Long, sourish, bretty finish with a balancing bitterness and sweetness. Yet another beauty from t IJ. (080426)

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle. Dark copper-brown color, super-thick rocky light tan head that almost goes over the glass. Slight funk on the aroma, along with grain, grapeskins and pepper. Taste has a pleasant funkiness balanced by some mild sweetness. Real grainy throughout and the alcohol never really is apparent. Reminded me a bit of La Roja.

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008
(3/16/08) Bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Hazy red with a big, slowly-diminishing, off-white head. Aroma of some malt, wood and fruits quite nice. Sweetish flavor with some malt, a bit of caramel, some oaky sour notes and some nice fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Very pleasant.

yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange to amber with a collapsing tan head. Light mouldy and brett aroma, minor woody note. Flavour is sweet malty with a nice yeast note and more of the same slight citric brett acidity. Mild sulphorish note into the finish. Lingering yeasty and malty finish.

after4ever (7617) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bright medium amber caramel with slim gray rim. Big funky cherry on the nose--lots of soft sweet sour notes dancing around alongside that. Rich medium body with lively carb. Gorgeous cherry, red wine vinegar, and tangy citrus mid-palate. Mild, lightly minerally finish.
