Bontus (638) - Flanders, - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours dark orange, almost brown. Woody sweet nose. Aroma bit sour, quite sweet. Bit strange. Touch of sulphur. A lesser Struise brew.

Mothroy (82) - - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Needed 3 glasses to pour the one 330ml bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma is sour, acidic. Sourness masks the flavour. Don’t think this beer should be sour being a triple. Disappointed

Pyrmir (3478) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
330 ml bottle at Pipes of Scotland. Cloudy yellow with massive white head. Aroma fruity, pepper, lots of yeast esters and dry malt. Taste is dry, grainy, lots of yeast, fresh dry malt notes with a drug, grainy and fruity finish. High carbonation. Nice and fresh

Bicky (13) - Waregem, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Had some problems with gushing. Nice amber coulor, tan foam. Smells soure, some oranges,citrus, a little bit alcohol and some banana. Taste medium bitterness, a little salty, lightly sour, some banana, nice warming alcohol taste, a little smoke, some coffee. My opinion: the beer has a nice taste but is infected, if it gushed that much...

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2014
Tripel version of Westoek X, for the same commissioner and also a four-grains ale. Thick, off-white head, misty ochre blonde colour. Bready and grassy aroma, orange peel, apple, pepper; fruity taste, yeasty, somewhat spicy, soft, dry maltiness, strongish leafy hop bitterness in the finish with some bourbon-like warming alcohol. Nice, but perhaps not the world class quality we are used to from the Struise Brouwers.

Lost almost half of the bottle just after openning but the taste wasn’t bad. Being a Struise beer this one was below my expectations.

Bacterial (1676) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle as a bonus for an in person trade with Seb in Brussels - thanks! Like the other recent reviews this freaking bottle gushed like mad. Luckily I am in a crappy hotel room. Most of the bottle was lost. Have a bit in my mug now. Somewhat of a malty wheat nose. Still lots of carbonation, despite the thing gushing so much. Some mild tartness with some classic belgian spices. A little bitter and astringent on the finish.

Maakun (755) - 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.

DJoer (744) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Large white head, came out of the bottle, yellow golden colour, fruity citrus orange yeast som sugar co2 smell, high carbonation medium bitter sour yeast sticky some orange taste Because a large head formed when poured in the glass I only could pour in 1/3th of the bottle. The sourness was much lower some grapes earth wine woody taste

wihlan (311) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Flaska bishops Storgatan - mycket intressant doft som påminner om en spontanare. Ljus grumlig med en fin vit skumkrona. Komplex maltighet med någon krydda som ligger och smyger i bakgrunden. Valbalanserad!

@ Bishop Molbergs. Frisk med en hel del belgisk jäst. Bra fyllighet o krippen, hel del sötma.
