330ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Saveur Biere. Struise is one of my favourite brewerys but this wasn’t excellent performance.
Bottle, bb 31.12.2015 (thanks marduk). Pours dark amber with beige head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, citrus. Flavor is sweet and bitter, citrus, caramel, malt, grass, acidic notes, rye. Overall: drinkable, but clearly past it's prime. Marduk (8206) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2017

330ml bottle, thanks Marduk. Almost clear dark amber, thick beige head stays. Aroma is sweet, fruity, malty, caramelly. Taste is kinda sweet, malty, peachy. Spicyness in aftertaste, some booze. Drinkable, not bad. PhillyBeer2112 (2882) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Possible old bottle? No date marking. Nose is sherry, fruit. Flavor similar, semi-sweet, dark fruits and sherry, light bitterness at the end, no apparent aroma or flavor hops. Drinks a bit like an old ale with Belgian influence. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2016 As Belgobarens IPA at Belgobarens, Stockholm, Sweden, Thursday 17th November 2016 it’s taken me ages to track this down and add this rating, This was a complete contrast to my DIPA, fruity with a light bitterness, a little bit of confectionery sweetness but difficult to be exact on what I can pick up. Enjoyed it though, was good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4 DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2015

2015/10/08 - Pours a clear, dark copper colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves no lacing. Aroma is bread, toffee, earthy hops, molasses and red grapes. Tastes is sweet bread, clove, toffee, earthy hops and slightly tannic red grape. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with mildly biting carbonation and long, drying, bitter finish that is lightly boozy and mildly warming. Not at all what I expected. Interesting and delicious.

Belgobaren på tap. Fungerar utmärkt att dricka om och om igen. En fotbollsbira! johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy brown with some hoppiness but not as much as expected. Slightly spicy and quite gentle. Not one of their best but still pretty nice.
