Assignment by John Vanloo of San Francisco-based Waterloo Beverages LLC to develop & manufacture the Westoek Ale – 6% ABV at & by the Deca Brewery. As this was a very complex recipe to deal with, Deca asked Urbain Coutteau, brew master at Struise to collaborate on this project. 4 grain Blond dry triple ale married to a soft English bitter. Urbain’s Magnum hops for bittering, Styrian Goldings for different aroma hop gifts in the boil, late boil & flame out, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh for dry hopping.

Bottle - Perfumy, stone fruit and some citrus. Cloudy orange with a rich beige head. Perfumy, stone fruit and citrus. Well balanced and very nice. Must like perfume.

It bites in the beginning but becomes smooth with an even tone. Overall, a ok beer that’s somewhat enjoyable.

Een heel lekker biertje met een wat speciale smaak aan, een aanrader om eens te proberen

Golden to light orange, hazy with airy white head. Nose. Grain malt bread yeast, sugarish. Slightly sourish, sweet finish. Definitely had better struise brews...

On sent la petite touche de De Struise, ce qui fait toujours plaisir. Il y a une petite acidité qui est assez agréable avec du poisson.

33cl flesje via Être Gourmet Alcoholpercentage van 6% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig bier. Schuimde hevig bij opening wat zorgde voor bier verlies en snel inschenken. Schuimkraag daarna snel weggezakt. Aroma en smaak: zurig, ruikt als een geuze, rozijnen. Smaakt ebt snel weg. Conclusie: Niet mijn smaak, Struise brouwers wordt niet vermeld. Normaal vind ik deze lekkere biertjes maken. Nu vind ik deze in samenwerking met Waterloo in San Francisco toch minder maar dit is door de zuurgraad van dit bier wat mij niet ligt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks Stas. Murky orange with white film. Peach in syrup aroma, a little sourish then sweet taste. Medium-to-full body, carbonated, long, somewhat yeasty finish.

Beachmaster (293) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 20, 2014
12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. pours a clear dark amber with a massive white head which slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is sour fruit. Taste is very dry, crisp, with little of the typical sweetness. Different, but not outstanding. Not a bad effort, but not one of my favorites.

Barreras (1420) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a light yellow color with a fruity aroma. Taste is very light and apricot fruit flavors that disappear quickly. A lasting fruit flavor on the palate, that isn’t too sweet but has notes of sugar. A tasty beligan ale.
