Bottle at the restaurant ’down the road’ from the Struise brewery. Hazy dark gold beer. Softish semi dry palate. Aromatic malts. Spice. A little bitterish hop coming through towards the semi dry finish. Fine.
33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of riped fruits, wood, zest, pines. Taste of dry riped fruits, caramel, zest, mandarins, mild bitterness, okay! Erzengel (8918) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2016
*Old rating. Best before June 2012. The beer is yeasty with hints of fruits and oranges. Easy to drink with a nice Belgian yeast profile. Smooth fruity in the aftertaste. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2015
9/24/2009 2:15:29 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. Bold yellow body with thick head. Fruity and sweet nose. Nice sweet flavour, with fruits and slightly sour. Some spicyness in there as well. A really nice blend that goes down very well. Struise does it again. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 1, 2014

From 33cl bottle. Pale amber. Aroma is yeasty, dry, balanced. Flat body, too carbonated. Yeast, esters, dry...not impressive Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle (a few years old) at home. Can’t remember where I got this sucker... It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is mostly of dough with sweet apple pie, hay and light toast. The taste is sweetish, doughy, apple, melon, some astringency, touch of spice and light lemon maybe......dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot going on, but what there is ain’t great. A very ho hum Belgian ale... PhillyCraft (7413) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle with Keith, pours hazy bright orange gold with light but nice head and lacing. Aromas and flavor of earthy grains, biscuit malt, dark fruit, light spice, and yeast. Refreshing overall with a dry bitey finish. Carbonation was light to medium. Pretty good 77ships (9949) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2013
2008 Vintage bottle @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst during the Tour De Geuze. Pours a murky, very hazy orange with a greyish white head, only on the sides. Smell is dusty cellar, oxidized, murky, lightly rotting, very overripe dark fruit, dust, lightly watery,… Taste I surprisingly good, sweet mouldy, sugar, light overripe fruits, oxidation, rather sweet still, dying thick yeast, sweet spices,… Little carbonation but aptly fuller body. Obviously this beer cannot survive for long but good cellqring kept this drinkable and quite enjoyable.
