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 lbutikken 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.

A dusty magnum bottle found on the struise farm after a dusty drum yuke session Bright malts and sharp aromas Pours blonde a little hazy with a thick white head. We climbed up on a loft in the barn to play drums & yuke and found bottles to open. Amazing beer amazing night

150 cl magnum bottle from 2005, thanks to who ever brought it. Pours hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma has orange, pineapple, some oxidation, lime, lots if citrus, rum essence, yeasty esters. Taste has a lot of these oxidated notes, but is in general really orangey and pineapply, fruity, a note of sherry, actually, really fruity and smooth. Really nice taste, even after 6 years.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a frothy lasting white head. Quite sharp and alcoholic aroma of anise, mandarin, yeast and alcohol. Full-bodied and warming favour of orange-sweets, spices, pineapple, caramel and dense alcohol. Long rounded but still a bit hot finish of dried oranges, yeast, hay and unidentified spices. Well-made but still a bit alcoholic.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at The White Horse.
Semi hazy amber and struggling to hold onto a head. Slight lactic like funk to the aroma with some wheat and straw, slight earth, caramel and yeast. Plenty of fruity notes too. Very Struise indeed. More of the same in the flavour. Reminds me a little of Struiselensis. Very earthy and some slight barrel notes with a sugary hint that is clearly Struise. Characteristic sting in a wild fermentation way. Fruit and caramel finish with a lovely tarty zing. Probably not on best form but it’s still bloody good.

caesar (6972) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2008
Bottled (same as bierkoning). Hazy yellow color, big frothy white head. ARoma of tequila (thats what everybody mentioned), bit dusty, slight citrus. Taste is quite alcoholic, liquor, like a spicy triple as well. It sure is dangerous with that alcohol percentage!

bierkoning (13055) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle # 97. Tequila-like aroma, grainy, malty and a hint of lychee. Flavor has matured alcohol, mixed with melon and hints of citrus. Malty with remaining flowery hops in the finish. Well matured and well balanced in spite of the alcohol burn.
