TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
19.11.13 Bottled 330ml Saveur. BB 11/2017. Copper-amber color, good foamy white head - the bottle was gushing a bit. Berries in the nose, some bretta-like tartness, some caramel. Medium-bodied. Flavor has light bretta, caramel. Fruity, apricot-mango, passion fruit candy. Drinkable yes, Belgian yes, but not among the best Struises.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A hazed orange, amber pour with a white head. a fair bit of banana ester to the nose along with some orange peel and apricot fruitiness. A good malt and sugar sweetness and a lot of sugar. There is a lot of caramel and sugar sweetness to the palate, too. A fair amount of banana and tons of apricot fruit flavor. A definite alcohol presence, however.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2012
Bottle, 8%. Fruity aroma, seems sweet. Seemingly clear greyish amber colour. Good stable off-white head. The flavour is sweet and slightly spicy. Good chalky mouthfeel. The sweetness is balanced by a good alcohol level, but still a tad on the sweet side.

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2011
Hazy orange color, slight yeast particals present. Average white head. Smell fruits, slight hints of hop and orange. Nice taste, soft yet kind of stimulating, tickling. It makes me want to taste more so that’s a good thing. Very good carbo, very good body. Very evenly balanced.

Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a smooth complex beer
