ChtiBreizh (219) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Last bottle on the shelf. Gusher. Hazy golden with thick head. A blend between the yeasty and sweet touches of a tripel and the sourness, barnyard aroma of a gueuze. Very interesting.

Bierridder_S (335) - BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2015
05/08/2015 @home – 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck As advised by Urbain I opened the cooled bottle very slow, after 30 seconds more quickly, still a bit of gushing, however I managed to have 25cl in my glass. Hazy dark golden full of small particles with massive light tanned head. Fruits, malts, sweet, spices, and sourness .

ds47uk (9) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015 does not count
On opening the bottle half of the beer escaped in a fountain of froth. Way too carbonated!! Also a metallic taste which may be associated with the overcarbonation. Not well brewed.

Batavi (169) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
Fles gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in Struise glas. Goudgele troebele kleur met royale witte schuimkraag, die zich terugtrekt maar wel constant aanwezig blijft. Er drijven ook deeltjes gist onderin het glas. Aroma's zijn verassend zurig met veel esters van tropisch fruit; kiwi, banaan, abrikoos, Belgische gist, hout en kruiden. Het smaakpallet volgt de geur, fruitig, zurig en licht bitter. Licht olieachtige body met droge, bittere iets zurige afdronk. Interessant bier, smaak is anders dan ik verwacht had, lijkt een beetje op een mix van tripel en Lambic Gueuze bier. Het kruidige van een tripel, en het licht zurige brett achtige pallet van een Gueuze bier. Behoorlijk complex bier, ga ik zeker nogmaals proberen. Wederom een mooi bier van Struise die wel moeilijk in een categorie valt te plaatsen.

freretoc (1178) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl au chalet de Victore. Bière à renoter car trop de levures et de sucres à juste exploser à l’ouverture il n’en restait pas 5cl. Couleur blonde. ENORME effervescence pas de mousse. Nez citron et levure. Bouche levure et banane.

spacecube (1378) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
330ml bottle, this bottle was good, no gushing. Large foamy white head over a golden hazy body. Nose is sour, with peach, orange and coriander with caramel malts. Light bodied with an oily texture. Sweet malts, light bitterness and alcohol taste in the finish, with dry sourness. Lively carbonation.

wolfcarnival (156) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2015
bottle from beergeek shop. cracked it open at the weekend. holyshit it went everywhere. fuck that. even a little lift of the cap made it spray all over and i couldnt leave it long enough. actual colour was a hazy gold. smelled of bread, oranges, dried fruits. tasted surprisingly tart. sour citrus, apricot, belgian yeast then the familiar honeycaramel, banana, spices and boozy warmth coming through at the end. full and frothy mouthfeel. plenty goin on. actually i liked the taste a lot, but the experience was spoiled by the fuckin fizzzz
