jaghana (4153) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper-amber beer with huge head, got gushing. Nose is on caramel and caramalt with a sourish presence. Aroma is on the same but quite sweet, cherry touch, lot of caramel, anise, cinnamom. Near to a flemish red as the label suggests but less complex and quite sweet, lot of yeast notes.

VikingUSA (3) - Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2013 does not count
Pours a murky copper with a light and marshmallow-y off -white head. Westoek XX has an intriguing tropical nose of guava, berries, some grapes, and healthy doses of spice and funk. There is a neat depth of fruity flavors on the first swallow, with kiwi the most prominent but strawberry and bananas also present, along with lots of chewy spice on the finish. Upon subsequent swallows, the barnyard flavors become more and more dominant, along with warm apple and some more muted and textured tropical notes.

Silvan7 (749) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle @ Home. profumo di caramello, di mou, e di pesca sciroppata. Si avverte il lievito. Colore ambrato scuro, tendente al ruggine. bella schiuma stabile, non troppo persistente. Gusto caldo alcolico, ma veramente caduco. ci si aspetta una sferzata di calore alcolico che non arriva e un po’ delude, mal’ingresso č ottimo. Carbonatazione decisa , ma non disturba l’assaggio. Il luppolato č poco avvertibile, la sensazione generale č appiccicosa. Un po’ carente di corpo , il difetto si avverte sul finale. improvviso, deludente, lascia la bocca in attesa di un retrogusto che non arriva.

jfb (4081) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 (bottle) murky golden colour with a billowing white head. aroma of bread dough and lemon peel, slightly phenolic, with some surprisingly big notes of bretty funk, a hint of cherry stones and powdered sugar. flavour is mostly almonds and overripe peaches, slightly tart, with notes of caramel, more bread dough, some grass and salted popcorn in the finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: amber clear beer, unstable off white head. Nose: caramel, malts, little sour, but mostly caramel. Taste: little sour, malts, lots of sugar. Not really an enjoyable beer... Struise can do way better than this!
