ST247 (463) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
On tap @Schooltje. Tried next to the Westoek X. This one is a bit darker than the X, more amber. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, sour, spicy. Taste is a bit alcoholic, fruity, spicy but also bit watery.

PapaVillum (677) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 11. maj 2014. Mørk kobberfarvet belgisk IPA med 1/2 cm offwhite-farvet skumtop, som svinder til kant. Duft af appelsin, abrikos. Lidt gær. Lidt syrlighed. Dejlig, dejlig smag af både sødme og humlebitterhed. Giver mindelser om en dobbelt IPA, grundet den lille sødme, der er tilstede. Meget rund OG samtidig frisk mundfølelse grundet et veljusteret kuldioxid-indhold. Desuden en god lækker eftersmag. Meget tiltalende øl.

Beerhunter111 (11059) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes oranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, röstig, dunkles reifes Obst. Geschmack röstmalzig, stark malzig, überreife Früchte, Karamell.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22 from Ship in a Bottle, Liverpool. Fucker completely exploded all over Rich’s kitchen. Quite sweet, complex, pepper and spice, balsamic vinegar, peach and fruit. Apart from the opening drama I enjoyed this.

tricksta_p (2087) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Aroma of malts, dried fruit, caramel, yeast, apricot. Flavour is similar, pretty sweet, sugary, a bit boozy. Contrary to some reviews I did not detect any barnyard in the aroma.

melush (1345) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2014
Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en tienda XXXII. Color ambar anaranjado. Sabor a malta, ligeramente afrutado y citrico, con un toque dulce. Bastante carbonata.

ABT_S54 (275) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2014 33cl bottle served in a Delirium Tremens glass. Absolute gusher. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head and some floating sediment. Tastes fruity and juicy with suggestions of lemon curd and citrus notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodies with little carbonation. Not up to the standard of the usual Struise fare.

hohops (548) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Appearance- it surges out of the bottle. Pours a cloudy, murky golden with a half finger head, and lots of sediment. Aroma- tart fruit, yeast, orange peel, grapefruit, bit of citrus- almost lambic smelling. Taste- lots of fruit, little bit of sourness, smooth, quite full mouthfeel, orange, lemons, juicy fruit, quite a bit of carbonation. Very nice.

Douberd (3291) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 8% Very dark orange golden colour on the body, a bit hazy, with a tall and slighty off-white head on top, with average retention,leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts, sugar, honey, peach, a touch of yeast. Taste is sweet, peaches, apricot, the malts and honey again present. There is a strong enough bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste to balance the initial sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, mildly dry palate. Overall quite good, better than the one X version.
