New batch brewed at Struise, available from July 2008.

Dangerous Blonde is a funky triple style beer with a strong edge brewed first in December 2004 and released for New Years Eve 2005. It was once brewed at the Caulier facilities exclusively for Ølbutikken in Copenhagen, Denmark. Only 140 bottles of this exclusive batch were released at that time in numbered and sealed magnum bottles. We thought it was time for a Struise Deca revival! Deep golden orangey to amber body and a white creamy head. Has a nose with a complexity of different aromas. The taste is a little bitter, sweet and fruity acidity with little to medium carbonation. The finish is almost endless with again a bitter, sweet and dry aftertaste.
