tdtm82 (668) - Essex, - APR 19, 2011
Bottle; bought from magic yeast shop, 33cl, poured into Struise glass on an absolutely blindingly hot day. White lacing, murky copper-bronze appearance, aroma is floral hops, pine, banana, toffee, treacle, oranges, brown sugar. Taste is oranges, toffee, banana. caramelt, pine, gorgeous sprakling mouth feel, candy sugar, slightly burnt toast notes-mildy roasted and sharp on the tongue, alcohol, wood, a bit of burn but not too aggressive, floral hops, reasonably balanced. An interesting beer, think I hold this back a bit too long thu, Sorry Carlo and Urbs, my amateurish rate here.

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

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a chalice glass. A: Pours a hazy copper color forming a medium thin bubbled creamy beige head with excellent retention and lots of spotty lacings left. A small layers remains forever on the top S: Very fruity with strong notes of grapes. A bit acid which reminds a bit a Flemish Red Ale. Candy sugar and Belgium earthy-bready yeasts. Alcohol T: Slightly sweet upfront. Again, very fruity with strong notes of grapes. Candy sugar, caramel. caramel malts. A bit metallic. End is mild bitter. Pleasant M: Medium to heavy body. Medium to low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Malty fruity with a nice hoppy sting O: Good drinkability. Not the best from Struise but still an very enjoyable beer [ BA Review @ 5/12/2013 ]

guiroul33 (67) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 12, 2014
dark and cloudy amber color, big frothy tan head. Aroma of vinegar and spices. Taste is well balanced with some acidity and sourness specific to flemish oud bruins after the initial sweetness. A very good flemish ale.

adster (424) - HUNGARY - OCT 4, 2014
Marcipános, mazsolás illatokba burkolózik, krémes és kissé fanyar kezdéssel indít. Számomra ideális mértékben szénsavas, illetve pont, hogy a nélküli, íze pedig erjedt hangulatokkal teli, éretlen gyümölcsös, édes malátás, mandulás-marcipános; összetetten finom.

SarkyNorthener (2095) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from midland tasting group. I never got round to drinking this on the day due to being pissed. This was a spare bottle thanks to minutemat, who also warned us about its liveliness. Well it was certainly a gusher, I opened it a little and the foam started seeping. It took 10 minutes to open safely. Dark hazy amber beer with floaters And a big head. Aroma is barnyard funk, citrus and yeast. Taste is orange pith, caramel, yeast, citrus and sour fruits. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

Bottle - Sweet apricot and sweet light malts. Cloudy gold with a nice off white head. Stone fruit, light sweet malts and a very light bitterness in the finish. Very fruity and sweet.
