PriorL (2460) - 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!

Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light caramel nose and flavor is dark fruit and sweet spice. Higher ABV is hidden. $5.99 for a 330ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Marlboro, MA.

Vignale (2383) - 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.

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.

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 (2288) - 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.

evergreen0199 (2276) - 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.

Garrold (2268) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from House of Trembling Madness drinks shop, York. Once I’d finally contained the beer to a glass, it was cloudy amber coloured, with lots of bits, and a massive, John Merrick sized head. Under that there is a cider lolly sweet and sourness. Some black cherry. Some spice. Taste is baked apple sweet, followed by the black cherry, tangy dryness. Loads going off. I need another...
