alassio (84) - USA - APR 10, 2013
Pleasantly zesty with a light fruity density on the palate; a touch of apricot and then some light tree-bark hops. Sour, sweet, and bitter all vie for attention, with none of them succeeding and the flavors cancel each other out to make for an overall simple beer that is not all that pleasurable, really. If anything, the mouthfeel is the best thing about it. Don’t need to have it again terribly soon.

Calisky (2347) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 26, 2016
1ere bouteille partie en gushing, reste 5cl a boire... étonnant 2e bouteille ok. Couleur orangée trouble, petite mousse. Nez fruité, brett, fruit verts, alumette, genre sour ale. Gout pareils avec houblonné citronné et note lactique. Bon corps. Fin sur amertume-aigre-fruité-agrumes. Bizarre pour le style et surtout pour Struise..

blackisle (1736) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle 33cl. (BB 12/2017). What a gusher! Despite the warnings on this site and my cautious handling of the bottle about half of the content went astray. The rest poured into a teku glass. Cloudy dark amber, small frothy off-white head, light lacing; sourish aroma, peach, apricot, apple, barnyard; taste is medium sweet and sour, fruity, light honey, with long duration, light bittersweet finish, spicy notes; medium body, oily to sticky texture, lively carbonation; very nice.
