tdtm82 (1522) - 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.

bartlebier (2992) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
33cl, 2014ish vintage shared at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel Tasting@Bierhandlung Freiburg JAN2016. - Again, a major gusher, despite a 24h rest: about half remained in the bottle, mainly coating the bottle from inside as foam. Struise’s beers are proving out to be less and less ideal for tastings or idealistic drinkers who prefer at least 2/3 of the bottle to end up in their glasses. - Luckily had this once before - median impression: brett makes a yeasty sweet-tooth barley wine thin and jumpy. - Flattish in the nose apart from a Co2-powered sourish tinge and thinned out fruit caramels. - - No direction in flavours really: it’s a dirty sugary free-for-all that throws itself up in the air and sees where it lands. Boozy Granny Smiths coated in supermarket honey. Fizzy mouthfeel. Wipe & next.

brnandersen (2886) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2015
33 cl. bottle, huge gusher upon opening. What beer was left, poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a huge, white head that fades to big, fluffy lumps. Fruity aroma with bretts, yeasts, caramel malts, spicy and earthy notes. Somewhat tart. Taste is lightly sourish with sweeter caramel-vanilla undertones. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fizzy carbonation. Finishes dry with tart fruits and bretts. Strange one - I’d expected sweeter with the bacteria less prominent. Still worth cleaning the table.

Kavu (3480) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2015
0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a high foamy head. Aroma is slightly sour malts with some belge yeast. Flavor is slightly sour malts, belge yeast, alcohol and some hops. Good stuff.

Beertobealive (390) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2015
Pours a huge foamy white head. Aromas of light hops and lemongrass. Hazy orange body. Thick in mouth with feeling of marzipan. Pleasant balance but more suitable for spring or summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (5815) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2015
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 05/2019, at One Pint Pub, 20151204) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tartness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spiciness, tartness, sweetness, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and bitter. A pleaseant and complex yeasty brew.

sjogro (1590) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Shared 33cl bottle thanks to Maakun. Hazy orange, floating stuff, white head. Fruity, orangey smell. Soft mouthfeel, nice fizzy carbo. Backlog from 2014/10/24.
Lambic fruitzuur vs barleywine? Lekker en apart en Struise :-) sprong weer uit de fles. Backlog from 2015/01/19.

__Rb81 (497) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle at home (quite a gusher). Aroma is almost like a gueuze; acidic, funky, yeast, barnyard, light floral, quite nice, even though, probably not intensional. Taste is bitter sweet with fruity acidity, yeast, dry bitter ending, some tartness again and a slightly too harsh bitter aftertaste. Quite nice, almost worth the 15 min degassing and cleaning your ceiling… ;)

gcontano (20) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2015
Large foamy white head over a golden hazy body. Nose is sour, with peach, orange and coriander with caramel malts. Light bodied with an oily texture. Sweet malts, light bitterness and alcohol taste in the finish, with dry sourness.

visionthing (4080) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2015
33cl bottle from Struise shop, Brügge. Pours clear rather pale golden with a very bubbely white head. Fairly yeasty and fruity aroma with funky notes, peaches, citrus and some slightly floral notes and hints of barnyard and brett. Moderate to medium sweet and surprisingly funky and acidic. Did kind of expect the more sweetish classic Belgian triple, but this is some really nice refreshing and tasty brew. Funky and delicious, but a bit too fizzy!

Muddy caramel pour. Aroma is mild tang. Taste is port quality, moderate sour, vanilla, lovely. Only big complaint - theres too much booze on taste. Decent stuff.
