UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, very unstable white head, rather flat.
Nose: malts, grains, some lemon, is this a pilsener?
Taste: rather bitter, some lemon, little too dry for me, but only thing coming in my mind is that this is a pilsener...
The least good Struise beer I had

Odd and I think it. Very light on the palate. Brown sugar and molasses without the heaviness. Floral and some sweet. A bit of haze in the orange brown color. Tap

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
I tried a bottle which was over a year past it’s "best before" date. That said, this was the first Belgian ale I’ve ever tried that was completely unpleasant. The "very complex recipe" resulted in a very complex mess of a flavor, at least when over a year past expiration. Leather, spruce, and citrus were the predominant flavors, with an almost burnt caramel malt. Most disagreeable. My score would be lower, but I have to make allowance for the past-expiration condition.

330ml bottle bought from a shop in Bruges. Pours a pretty hazy light Amber with cream coloured head that is pretty stable. Aroma is yeast, hops, a little alcohol and pine. Lovely smooth texture. Yeasty, followed by hops. Finish is relatively balanced between sweet caramel and tart hops.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tripel fatta molto bene! Colore ambrato con schiuma bianca aderente. Al naso floreale e fruttata. In bocca ben bilanciata con acidità, dolcezza ed amarezza molto equilibrate. Sapore fruttato molto gradevole e finalmente persistente. La bassa gradazione alcolica considerando il suo stile la rende molto beverina.

Yellow body with a thick white cap. Belgian yeast, floral notes, fruity esters. Light sweetness. Medium bodied. Perhaps a hint of lemon and assorted light citrus. Bready with soft carbonation. Pretty good.
