Struise Pannepot (10%)
Color dorado oscuro, algo anaranjado y cobrizo. La corona de espuma es muy abundante, de un blanco pulcro, especialmente densa y bastante duradera. En nariz es dulzona, afrutada (cítricos y manzanas verdes), sobre la que destaca de Cerveza fuerte de estilo belga homenaje a los pescadores belgas que capitaneaban las “pannepot” o buques de pesca de bajura. Imprescindible y con una gran capacidad de envejecer. El olor es dulce, a maltas y especias, muy complejo, con notas tostadas, toffe, licorosas, afrutadas, a azúcar moreno. En boca es igualmente dulce, y vuelven sabores a caramelo, café, frutas y especias. Es una cerveza intensa, como de navidad y que hay que beber a media temperatura y en copa pequeña.forma clara y notable el lúpulo y matices herbáceos. En boca al principio es dulzona con matices afrutados (a cítricos como la naranja), y claramente especiados (como el coriandro). Del dulzor inicial se pasa al amargor explosivo del lúpulo para terminar con una notable acidez y un matiz metálico resultando un tanto terrosa y herbácea. El regusto resulta especialmente seco y muy prolongado.

Struise Pannepot Wild
Bottle at RBESG 2016 Grand Tasting Part 1, Brew Pub Le Sec. A little gushing to start, be careful! Very hazy brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruits, caramel, light brett funk, a little tart dark fruit raisins and prunes. Flavour is above moderate sweet, light moderate bitter and light sour. Full bodied with soft carbonation. I was worried this would just be infected Pannepot but it comes together very well and drinks superbly.

Struise T.H.R.E.E
Piana spora, dość gruba, mydlana, ale całkiem trwała. Barwa bursztynowa z pływającymi licznymi drobinkami drożdży. W intensywnym aromacie baaardzo przyjemna wanilia i świeży kokos, do tego jasne winogrono, białe wino, rodzynki, kandyzowane owoce, syrop klonowy, bourbon... W smaku półsłodkie, likierowe, winogronowe, generalnie powtórka tego, co w zapachu z tą różnicą, że wanilia i kokos są na finiszu, w aftertejsie. Goryczka ziołowa, pikantna, nieduża. Wysycenie średnie, drobne. Pełne, treściwe, wyklejające w odbiorze, jednocześnie pijalne i z fajnie wkomponowanym bourbonowym alkoholem, rozgrzewającym dopiero na żołądku. Co ciekawe nie czuć kolendry charakterystycznej dla tripli - może nie była dodawana?
Takie Triple to ja mógłbym pić znacznie częściej, zdecydowanie jeden z najlepszych tripli, jakie dotychczas piłem! W tym przypadku beczka w 200% zrobiła to, co do niej należy.

Kolor faktycznie czerwony z lekkim bursztynem, srednia metnosc. W snaku a zwlaszcza koncowka zdecydowanie wytrawne, piwo ma profil karmelowy ze spora dawka suszonych owocowm. Zapach to glownie morela suszona, smak to ciemne rodzynki oraz suszony ananas, nieco prazonych migdalow.

Struise Pannepot Grand Reserva
From a 330ml bottle (2012 vintage) on 20/9/2016. Pours a murky dark brown with pretty much no head. The nose is fruity, with a good whiff oak a some vinous notes. Flavour wise it’s big and sweet, with plums, raisins, prunes, cherries and brown sugar, against a background of warming alcohol and oak. The texture is thick and slick, with soft carbonation. A complex, nicely balanced sipper.
