hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. Spicy, herbal nose – rooty sassafras or sarsaparilla. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet, spicy, mildly acidic flavor – pale grains and honey with hints of toffee and sassafras. Finishes with a nice, lingering sweetness. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Countbeer (4303) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle: Medium vast white head on top of a hazy dark yellow orange colored beer. Smell yeast, malts, hints of alcohol, fruit, flowers and sweat. Taste is fruity with yeast, spices, medium bitter, malts, a hint of caramel, some warmth of the alcohol light sweet and a hint of grains. Low carbo, soft very light tingly mouthfeel, medium to a slightly fuller body and light creamy texture,

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy brown color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and perfect lacing. Aroma consists of spicy yeast with nice Belgian malt notes and some residual sugar. Taste is a nice drinkable mix between some Belgian malt with notes of candi sugar and a very nice spicy yeast finish. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some limited filtration with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed though not as easily drinkable as the blonde version but the Struise yeast strain is still shining.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
330ml bottle, best before January 2016, bought from Dranken Geers. Hazy amber colour. Fluffy white head. Lively carbonation. Strong spicy Belgian yeast aroma. tangy and slightly peppery on the palate. Moderate sharp bitter hop presence. Light mouthfeel. Easygoing and pleasantly drinkable without quite hitting the real high spots.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2011
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some mild floral and yeasty notes as well. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some wood, quite sweet malts and actually a quite big bitterness lurking in the background and giving a nice dry bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

Orange to hazy orange colour. Slightly hoppy smell, tripel smell and orange. Taste like hops, nice bitterness. Mouthfeel is great and a bit dry.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2011
Hazy orange color, slight yeast particals present. Average white head. Smell fruits, slight hints of hop and orange. Nice taste, soft yet kind of stimulating, tickling. It makes me want to taste more so that’s a good thing. Very good carbo, very good body. Very evenly balanced.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2011
Bouteille 33cl, petite dégustation à l’occasion du 21 juillet. Bizarre car en fait avec ces deux versions, je m’attendais à des versions made in Struise des deux bières venant de chez Vleteren. Bière à la couleur orangée opaque, col est épais blanc. Une bière au profile de levure belge, le tout avec de petites notes d’amertume houblonnée conférant à la bière une note appréciable de citron. Le tout est accompagné d’une douceur venant de sucre brun ou candi ainsi que qcq épices. Le malt reste discret avec une note de caramel.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle at Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Amber colour, big head. Fruity and grassy hop nose, quite complex. Complex fruity hop flavours with hints of chocolate. Very dry in the finish. Full-bodied. Nice.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel and light fruit. Taste is more generically amber than I expected from struise, with even tones of honey and toast, with some underlying fruit and no sourness or funk at all. €3.7 Delirium Cafe
