Ouvrage encore exceptionnel des Struise Brouwers Et pourtant ici sur le modle dune bire de la Molen Brewery aux Pays-Bas, dont le brasseur leur avait demand de raliser leur version dune de ses bires pour un festival de la bire Ce festival ne devait pas tre triste, parce que mme dans votre seul verre, cest dj un vritable festival!!! En plus, avec ltiquette un rien psychdlique, on est dans lambiance aussi... Donc on commence par la couleur que je dirais brun acajou, et dailleurs mme dans les armes, il y a une nuance dacajou. Superbe. Pas beaucoup de bulles, mais la mousse nappe la bire dune couche bien crmeuse. Clart tout fait nette si on a cart la trs belle levure (dont on parlera). Les armes sont donc dacajou (oui, oui), de candi et du houblon amarillo pour mon exemplaire de 2011. (laversion suivante est avec du Cascade). La 1re bouche est bien amre, avec de la pelure dorange, et une lgre pointe fume trs fine en arrire-bouche. La 2me bouche est trs personnelle avec de lamertume prcise et une pointe de citron vert. La 3me bouche est merveilleuse et arrive lquilibre avec de lorge fin et un houblon soutenu, sans compter une superbe arrire-bouche. La levure est fine, souple et bien intgre: nette et prcise. Du grand art. La longueur est un enchanement superbe sur une classe triple avec du bois. Lalcool est trs volontaire pour du 7% abv, magnifique (donc cest bien le brasseur qui fait le dosage, ce que jai depuis longtemps profess CQFD). Comme disait un de mes profs de math: cest admis sans dmonstration, mais a va encore mieux en le dmontrant.... La finale montre du fruit confit et une pointe de candi, tout en gardant une amertume prcise. Oh Belgique, quand tu nous enchantes ainsi, que tu es un beau pays... Dank u wel, de Struise, voor dit werk Een heel plezier. (Merci beaucoup les Struise pour ce travail .. Un plaisir total) (Thank you so much the Struise for that work A big deal and a great pleasure). What else? 5.

On tap at Palm Tavern. This beer was a true delight. Pours to a hazy version of the Svea. Almost glowing amber body with super nice lacing of a white head. The aroma is bitter pine, spruce, and grassy herbal components. The flavor is stunning and very well balanced. Complex too. Deeply mouthwatering hops of pine, grass, apricots, and earthy palte malts. Not sharp in oily hops until the very finish. The palate is bitter and lightly oily but balanced by a velvety texture. Long finish.

Case (300) - GERMANY - OCT 12, 2011
Pours a gorgeous dark orange with medium white head. Aroma is a bitter-sweet melange of grapefruity hops and caramel. Taste is fruity with orange and grapefruit, freshly cut grass. Ends dry and bitter thanks to the plentyful hops. Very nicely balanced with creamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. A most excellent Belgian-style IPA!

Oranssi/amber vri. Keskirunsas, valkoinen vaahto. Kupliva olut. Raikas, eksoottisen hedelminen, havuinen ja sitruksinen tuoksu. Humalan monimuotoisuus tuoksussa on melko huumaava. Makukin on tytt pornoa ja eksoottinen humalaisuus jatkuu. Maku jatkuu ja jatkuu suussa. Jlkimaussa mielenkiintoisesti pyrhtelee hedelmisyys ja humala vuoronpern. Elvinen ja lempen humalainen olut.

Pours slightly hazy orange with nice white head, aroma has notes of grass, esters with banana, fruit, some deep tangerine, grapefruit, citrus notes with a touch of biscuit. Taste is awesome, with lots of nice tropical fruit, apricot, peach, some tangerine, orange, some grass and pine notes, finishing ncie and bitter with a touch of sweetness. Really, really nice.

Swaroga (2209) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 5, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark orange or light brown (something in between) with small to medium foamy eggshell white head. Nose : Striking fresh pine and grapefruit notes, some tart and strong soap like yeast aromas. Sip : medium to thick body with thick oily texture. Low carbonation. Lemon tartness with hoppy citrusness. It has a moderate bitter bite compared to other IPA but has a great drinkability. Refreshing but thick .... great mix that is so typical to Struise brewers. Well done.
