shoulderbroken (2414) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Craft webshop. Murky amber brown colour. Bit of a gusher. Aroma is boozy, yeasty, quite sweet. Taste is alright, not so exciting, some grain, tripel like, boozy again. Quite fizzy with bit of a fruity punch at the start. Lemony bitter. After that, not so much. Bit boring.

Vignale (2323) - 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.

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy orange amber pour smallish head. Nose and flavor shine with notes of peach, plum, raisin, fig, bread, and hints of citrus fruit. Sweet but clean, not cloying. Pretty tasty stuff.

Brandman (2250) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2011
Golden body, white head. Nicely balanced as so many other struises. Very malty and caramelly. Some mellow citrussy hop aromas. Too sweet for me.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark amber pour with a white head. Tangerine, sweet spice and pear aroma. Barley sugar and sweet spice flavours. Long dry and fruity finish.

evergreen0199 (2222) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
On tap at the excellent Struise beer shop in Brugge, Belgium last Christmas. A hazy golden coloured pour with a small white head on top. Citrus fruit aroma. Tastes quite bitter, dry, citrus fruit. Rather hard work to be honest.

MadRobin (2222) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 29, 2012
On tap 5 oz. sample at Pizza Paradiso in DuPont Circle, Washington, DC. Lightly hazy, golden straw color with small white head and no lacing. Aroma of berry fruit, apple, yeast and caramel. Taste of light citric hops, hay, spice and caramel with a mildly astringent finish. Medium body and low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Slightly hazy pour with a large white head. Awesome spicy dough notes with lemon peel and banana abounding. The flavor holds more vibrant yeast notes, banana clove, citrus, and bread. Medium bodied palate with a doughy dry finish.
