Hugi (463) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Very huge head! Extremely carbonized. Besides that, hazy and orange-grayish appearance. Aroma: lactic acid, peach, some fruity esters and yeasty phenols. Taste: fresh and a bit hoppy, again a bit fruity and a bit sour. Full and very fizzy finish.

johndoughty (4197) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle.A proper gusher. Tried 2 bottles and both exploded like Vesuvius. Eventually I was left with half a glass to try. Yellow with a sharp edge but hard to rate as there was so little left to try. What a disappointment.

mateuszk (348) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Tried twice, first time it ended almost all on the floor. Second time I was lucky and it poured perfectly onto glass. Brown in colour with white stable head. In aroma malty with some funkiness and slightly sourness and with lots of fruits - banana, apricot, apples. In taste malty base, bananas, soem bubblegum and after it pleasant sourness. Low bodied, fizzy carbonated, medium to low bitter ending. Very pleasant Belgian A.le

Shark_Pants (396) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
Glad I read other reviews first because I then opened it over the sink, as about half the bottle immediately evacuated and ended up down the drain. Not a good start. When the remainder settles, it is a deep amber with lots of lacing. The aroma is like a tripel or belgian golden strong ale but with a wild yeast sourness as well. The taste is exactly as the smell suggests, with a very good balance between the sweetness and sourness, funkiness and acidity. This beer is quite an achievement but is really let down by the gushing.

Jävligt bra krona! Ljus grumlig färg! Svag doft av körsbär??!! Någon? Inte mycket doft. Lite körsbär?? Går i smaken tillsammans med en viss sötma & maltighet. Lätt kropp. Jävligt bra syra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle at home - or what was left of it after it came flying out of the bottle. Open with caution! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hermod (3951) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours golden color with a huge frothy white head. High carbonation. Had to let this settle for a while. Green apples, apricots, barnyard in aroma, quite pleasant. Flavor has apricots, grain, barnyard mostly. More apricots in the dry finish. Some alcohol warmth as well. Really pleasant, but too bad about the carbonation.

Excalibur123 (250) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2015
Presenta amarillo oro algo turbio con levadura en suspensión, media corona de espuma y baja retención; aromas a levadura belga, azúcar candy, pera y alcohol; en boca entrada media con ligero amargor, notas a flores y caramelo; pos gusto un tanto seco y dulce; cuerpo y carbónico medios en una cerveza equilibrada y compleja, no tan dulce como otras belgas, la más sencilla de las Struise que he probado.

Cluniac (68) - - JAN 27, 2015
Appearance a nice amber, but bottle had funky yeast sediment. Aroma a sweet and sour, not my fav. Taste simalar, not pleasant in my opinion, and quite spicy. Palate equally rough snd not creamy or smooth feeling. Overall dissappointed, wont likely go for this one again.

BeerViking (2984) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Hazy gold with a thin head, lactic sourness on the nose plus faint apricot. Palate is fruity, estery, sour and lightly spicy. Like a sour-tripel hybrid.
