0.33 l bottle from BSH, Bp.
Cloudy copper pour with floating sediments and a fizzy, medium sized beige head on its top, which leaves a thin film behind.
Fruity nose and aroma with caramel, yeast and alcohol underpainted by some spicy hops.
It finishes a bit abrupt and liqueur liked with peppery alcohol and citrusses, which leaves a light tart aftertaste behind.
Showed nothing really exciting, but overall o.k.

draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft \ sampled \ Got this one from an American, beergeek tourist living in Turkey and whose name I cannot recall anymore \ He hated this so much that he tried to exchange this and when he couldn’t he just gave it back and asked for something else, I suggested him Struise Cuvée Delphine by a small Belgian brewery of whom he had never heard of before, I hope that, that one was somewhat better \ He tried to stop me when I wanted to try it but the beer ticker in me has always been stronger than common sense and he pleads didn’t stop me \ It was a slightly hazy orange with a thin white head \ Smells mostly sweet with decent amount of sweet yeast and some malt, I am also getting some caramel, so far from stellar but nowhere near as bad as I feared \ Taste started out with grains mixed in with malts, plenty of caramel before the candy sweetness kicks in which leads into an iron, sweet cornflakes finish as well as some sweet fruits, some definite sugar \ Body is medium and confidently carbonated \ Bottom line this is far from good but for a crappy macro this is good even (it is sold in line with the same intentions as Floris Kriek at the Delirium Hoppy Loft – it is hard to form any other opinion of this one but as a s crappy mainstream beer) DutchDrebus (6002) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
