UPDATED: DEC 4, 2017 Gekocht op zondag 5-2-2017 in de Struise Beershop aan de Burg in Brugge tijdens het 10é Bruggse Bierfestival. En geproefd op 6-10-2017. Aardnon 2009 is een wazig donkerbruin biertje dat bij het uitschenken weinig bruinig schuim geeft met een gelijkmatige structuur. Het blijft niet al te sterk aan het glas kleven en slaat zeer snel neer tot er bijna niet meer van overblijft. Het aroma van Aardnon 2009 is karamel zoet en heeft ook iets van opgelegde krieken en koffiemout. Bij de allereerst smaaktest valt vooral het lichte azijnzurige gevoel op, verder is de smaak vooral zoet, met zoethout, een ferme toets hout en een klein jeneverhintje. In de mond geeft Aardnon 2009 een volmondinge smaak, is hij wat licht olie-achtig van textuur en normaal CO2 prikkelend. In zijn totaliteit is Aardnon 2009 een verwarmend biertje. De nasmaak vloeit uit en is zeer licht bitterig met ook nog wat zoethout, opgelegde kersen, veel hout en nog wat jenevertoets. Hier kan je mischien het best toch wat bij eten, de Margaux vaten van het Chateau Haut Breton Larigaudière hebben hier een grote invloed, de houtsmaak is geweldig sterk en stoort toch wat.

Intriguing one - nothing I have ever tried before. Panepot base is really obvious but it more drastic on sour palate and the barrel notes are overwhelming. A bit too boozy.

eduardovl (1490) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2017
330ml bottle served in a Italian snifter glass. A: Pours a dark amber to brown color forming a small yellow head with medium retention forming some lingering and spotty molasses lacings in the glass S: Grapes and red berries! Vinegar, toffee, caramel malts, cherries, oak, more grapes, flowery hops... T: Slightly sweet and sour upfront. Becomes quickly, dry, acid and funky. Strong notes of grapes and red berries. Toffee, caramel malts, apple vinegar, cherries and oak. Great sweet-sour balance. Slightly metallic and a bit earthy in the end. M: Medium body and carbonation. Lingering in the tongue. Caramel malts and apple vinegar in the aftertaste. O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent Struise. Masterpiece Sour Red Ale.

30-AUG-2017, 2009 bottle @home, from Kihoskh. Dark Brown with a lasting, lacing, tan head. Aroma is tart, red wine, Wood. Taste the same. Sweet, tart, sweeter than most sour Browns but not too much. Nice one.

Bottle picked up at the Old Schoolhouse, Flanders, consumed at home Monday 7th August 2017 in the company of Craig, Stella and the kids. This is a back to their brilliant best from Struise, having had a few rather average beers of late. Fruity, tangy, wonderfully zappy, dark sticky fruits, wonderful sourness, this is a superb beer.

CraftBeerNick (2958) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017
Bottle at home in garden, 6th August 17. Pours pretty much black. Aroma is tart, barrel, fruit. Taste is barrel, fruit, not as sour as I thought it would be, lots of wood, where’s the sour? More fruit, thick body, liquirce, almost like a sour stout, lots of Struiss characteristics. Good, but I expected more.
