Temptation (257) - - FEB 11, 2013
Reddish copper color, darker than the usual IPAs. Off-white head, medium size and lasting. Hoppy aromas, fresh and fragrant. In nose, there are some hints to fruit and raw malts. It improves in mouth, with a nice balance between nuts and slight sweetness and a great, though constant, development. Elegant, notable beer.

androman (2218) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
33cl bottle at home from Beers of Belgium, Antwerpen. Nose is sourish fruity. Body is clear deep ruby brown, head is big, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is cherry, chocolate, raisin, brownie. Light sweet, medium bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is medium lasting hoppy slightly roasty medium bitter, light fruity sour, light alcohol warmth. Medium to full body, slick texture, average carbonation. Easy dessertish fruity beer, might be slightly off therefore the sourness, tasty though, nice one.

Bottle. Hazy brown color with white head. Aroma has malty, dark bread, citrus, tropical fruits. Taste is malty with quite long bitter and sour aftertaste. Flavors of malt, yeast, fruits, dark bread. A bit mixed as the beer is sour but hopped.

martin00sr (3909) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Clear amber, light beige head. Mild aroma, passionfruit, some citrus and malt. Flavour has lemon and light malt and hints of yeast. Finishes with a citrusy sourness. Not bad. Well within BBD but probably not super fresh...

Pours a hazy dark amber red body with rocky yellowish head. Aroma of peach, wheat, a bit of sulfur, grains and grapes. Taste of lychees, grapes and caramel. An unusual IPA. Soft carbonation light medium body with medium texture and long sour aftertaste.

martjoobolut (4090) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle, BB 08.17 (from beergium). Pours amber with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, grass, caramel, sourness. Flavor is sweet and sour with some bitterness, slight acid, berries, grass, malt, pine. Finish is dry-pine bitter with some hot alcohol. Overall: possibly bit off despite the BB, but generally speaking its still ok beverage. Would like to try it fresh tho.

Cristobal37 (1093) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
Looks like watered down coca-cola brown with very minimal head. Aroma is very unique like a belgian sour with lots of hops. Bitter piney hops mixed with a chocolate malty dubbel style beer. Quite odd actually. Even a tiny bit sour. Finish is mostly sappy hops and some vinegar. Well, up until now I have loved all the Struise beers Ive had, but this one is just strange. Cool that they do their own thing but in the end this just ends up being a weird hodgepodge of styles.

josanguapo (1564) - SPAIN - JAN 21, 2016
From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not sure if contamined. No hops feeling nor aroma. Not much IPA. Initial and middle sip fine but some acid in the aftertaste. In some moments I thought that I got used to it and even liked its nose and other times I started disliking it again. Could repeat if sure of fressness. BB date was Aug 2017.
