jamestulloch (3203) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Aroma of marmalade and hay. Flavour of sugar, orange and herbs. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Orangey and sweet.

Sweet, golden fruit nose, lots of honey. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lots of honey, some herbal hops, lots of cotton candy.

brnandersen (3172) - 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.

tricksta_p (3148) - 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.

Vignale (3147) - 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.

Maakun (3089) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Massive gusher, half of the beer came out right after opening. Fuck this. Hazy orange with white head. Sour grains, white wine and some spices. Medium sweet malts with strong yeasty notes. Good spicy and some apple. Way too much carbonation. Nice stuff, but seems a bit infected. For these prices some quality control would be nice.

PriorL (3066) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: amber clear beer, unstable off white head. Nose: caramel, malts, little sour, but mostly caramel. Taste: little sour, malts, lots of sugar. Not really an enjoyable beer... Struise can do way better than this!

keepersj12 (3051) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Typical all around for the style. Candy sugar, spice, some fruit in the aroma and flavor. A bit more bitterness than expected. Lots of booze, maybe a bit too much.
