gegwilson (3130) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle in the Hawkshead Beer Hall. Golden with a white head. Nice fruity floral aroma. The taste is sweet, sour and bitter all at the same time. Citrus and bready flavours. Very good.

Gusher, hazy yellow-orange colored, strong white puffy head, long lasting and nice lacing. Aroma is tart ripe fruit, some orange, straw, spicy phenolic and yeast. Taste is medium sweet malt, bit caramel, strong fruity tartness but medium- sourness, some orange and straw, medium spicy-phenolic bitterness, some yeast and bread, dry finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, oily.

Calisky (2469) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 26, 2016
1ere bouteille partie en gushing, reste 5cl a boire... étonnant 2e bouteille ok. Couleur orangée trouble, petite mousse. Nez fruité, brett, fruit verts, alumette, genre sour ale. Gout pareils avec houblonné citronné et note lactique. Bon corps. Fin sur amertume-aigre-fruité-agrumes. Bizarre pour le style et surtout pour Struise..

blackisle (1975) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle 33cl. (BB 12/2017). What a gusher! Despite the warnings on this site and my cautious handling of the bottle about half of the content went astray. The rest poured into a teku glass. Cloudy dark amber, small frothy off-white head, light lacing; sourish aroma, peach, apricot, apple, barnyard; taste is medium sweet and sour, fruity, light honey, with long duration, light bittersweet finish, spicy notes; medium body, oily to sticky texture, lively carbonation; very nice.

BobyFischer (295) - FRANCE - FEB 17, 2016
La moitié de la bouteille m’a explosé à la gueule. Du reste que j’ai goûté, très levuré (d’où l’explosion). Arômes et goûts de levures "fromagères" qui couvrent un peu l’ensemble.en cela, elle ressemble à l’Orval, en moins subtile et équilibrée. Bonne et désaltérante quand même.

bartlebier (3347) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
33cl, 2014ish vintage shared at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel Tasting@Bierhandlung Freiburg JAN2016. - Again, a major gusher, despite a 24h rest: about half remained in the bottle, mainly coating the bottle from inside as foam. Struise’s beers are proving out to be less and less ideal for tastings or idealistic drinkers who prefer at least 2/3 of the bottle to end up in their glasses. - Luckily had this once before - median impression: brett makes a yeasty sweet-tooth barley wine thin and jumpy. - Flattish in the nose apart from a Co2-powered sourish tinge and thinned out fruit caramels. - - No direction in flavours really: it’s a dirty sugary free-for-all that throws itself up in the air and sees where it lands. Boozy Granny Smiths coated in supermarket honey. Fizzy mouthfeel. Wipe & next.

brnandersen (3239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2015
33 cl. bottle, huge gusher upon opening. What beer was left, poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a huge, white head that fades to big, fluffy lumps. Fruity aroma with bretts, yeasts, caramel malts, spicy and earthy notes. Somewhat tart. Taste is lightly sourish with sweeter caramel-vanilla undertones. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fizzy carbonation. Finishes dry with tart fruits and bretts. Strange one - I’d expected sweeter with the bacteria less prominent. Still worth cleaning the table.

Kavu (4022) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2015
0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a high foamy head. Aroma is slightly sour malts with some belge yeast. Flavor is slightly sour malts, belge yeast, alcohol and some hops. Good stuff.
