COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yngwie (16503) - 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 ít 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 (11600) - 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 Ė quite nice. Sweetish flavor with some malt, a bit of caramel, some oaky sour notes and some nice fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Very pleasant.

yespr (40417) - 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 (7577) - 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.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Bottle courtesy of bierkoning. Thanks! Pours very cloudy, muddy, orange-ish, with a small fizzy head that doesnít last. Aroma of grapes and wheat. Odd taste. Donít really know what to make of it. Syrupy mouthfeel. Offputting at first, but it grows on you.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle, brewery. Cloudy dark chestnut, thin offwhite head. Strong alcoholic nose, wheaty, some lemon hop. Mouth is warm wheat with strong alcohol, some cherry glace tones and some other dark fruits. Finishes long and warm, spirit burn present. Rather good.
