bartlebier (3422) - 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.

teddybeer (3408) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2012
33cl bottle. Orangish colour with a frothy off-white head with long duration. Aroma is spycy, caramel, yeasty and fruity. Flavour is sweet, good balanced, the alcohol percentage is not appreciable, yeast and citrus notes. The final is mild sweet with an alcoholic aftertaste. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high.

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. En riktig skumkanon. Förlorade minst halva flaskan. Brunorange vätska med jästpartiklar och högt smutsvitt skum som blldar gardiner och lock. Sötsyrlig doft med karamell, vinäger, röda bär och vildjäst. Sötsyrlig karamellig smak men en hel del jästsmak som är trevlig, tranbär, rosevin och lite ekfat. Osäker på om flaskan var okej. Hade i så fall kategoriserat den som en wild ale eller Oud Bruin. Riktigt god i alla fall. Synd bara att så mycket försvann.

brnandersen (3272) - 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.
