Thanks. Tasting glass @ ZBF 2014. Hazy orange, small but solid white head. Beer appears to be way too cold. Picking up little in the nose, cold, faintly metallic, orange, fruity hops, flowers, touch white bread yeast. Taste is mellow orange peel hops, white bread yeast, citrus, sweet yeast, touch cereal. Very creamy mouthfeel. Not bad but nothing astonishing either. Feels like a great beer to session which can be tricky with a Struise beer given availability and above all price. It must be mentioned that I do find a lot of fresh hop ales off-putting and this was enjoyable fors ure.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Draft @ Struise Schooltje. Dore, col blanc crmeux. Arme offre un bouquet gnreux ct houblon, note un frit tropical - agrumes fort apprciable. Malt reste dans un style plus traditionnel style pilsen. Palais alterne entre un malt - grains pils, une certaine douceur en bouche rappelant presque le miel, et un houblonn fruit agrumes voire tropical. Une approche intressante du style.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2014
On tap at ZBF. Pours clear light golden yellow with nice white head, maintaining for a long while. Nose is flowery, with good bready malts base. The hop characteristics are not that present and overwhelming compared to the Imperialist, which I like more.

Swaroga (2154) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
15cl z kranu na Zythos BierFestival w Leuven. Jasne i przejrzyste piwo o średniej wielkości pianie. W aromacie tarta cytrusowa, żywica, skrka cytryny. Oglnie trochę podobny do Duvel o estrach przypominający tripel.

larsga (7386) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Big offwhite lasting head. Hazy deep yellow body. Spicy floral fruity aroma with honey notes. Dry spicy floral honey taste with metal and grain notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly sharp mouthfeel. Dryish honey and lie aftertaste with floral spicy notes. Lovely! Highly drinkable and very harmonic. (0.08l draft at brewery.)
