COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Noordhoek Ostrich Farm and Resort has been offering visitors an oasis of silence, tranquility and green pasture since 1997. In 2001 we began offering our guests fresh, homemade ale, "Struise Witte" was born. The dutch word for "ostriches" is "struisvogels" or "Struise", but the same word can also mean "sturdy" or "robust". This "Robust White" is a living wheat beer of high fermentation, unfiltered and unpasteurized. Brewed with natural ingredients, bottle conditioned in 33 cl bottles.

bibi (17) - De Panne, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2005
Served very cold at The Coffeehouse Prestige in De Panne, near the French border. Hazy pale yellow grapefruite peel coloured wheatbeer with a rocky white creamy froth ( As big as it gets!!! ). Nice lemony aromas with outspoken wheatness in the nose with touches of herbs, white bread and yeast. Refreshing mouthfeel with nice wheaty taste and smooth touches of ricecracker and fine citrus accents.. What a beer!

Outstanding whitebeer with very huge withe head. Clean light citrussy nose with light yeast accent and some hebs. Very clean and refreshing taste. Nice wheet accent, some lemon and coreander. It has a smooth and full taste for a whitebeer. Nice freshness in the afthertaste. This is the best Whitebeer i’v ever tasted.

Hazy dark golden golden colour with a very big head (a trademark for Struise beers?). Aroma is spicy with some yeast. Flavor has a nice sweetness with some orange.

The aroma is very spicy with notes of caramel and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast and oranges. The color is a hazy orange with the biggest head I’ve ever seen.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2005
50 cl bottle. Tries to leave the bottle when opened. Enters the glass with a huge-huge off-white head upon a pale yeallow, slightly hazy beer. Aroma had a bit of spices with some underlying cardboard. Very hard to drink, because of excessive foaming. As the head collapses, ever so slowly, you get an unusually malty flavor for a Belgian Wit, with a with hint of spices. Bitter, dry finish. Mouthfeel was less watery than other belgian wits, but waaaay to overcarbonated. A nice beer, but it would be better with more discrete Co2.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2005
Café de Hopduvel in Gent. Nice witbeer. Very hazy beer with lightyellow body and with the biggest foamy head ever seen. It is not easy to pour this one out. Very fine citrus touch and great wheatyness. Complex spicy accent of dried and fresh spices and herbs. It has a good freshness and a nice refined aftertaste. Much better than ordinary witbeer. I think i gonna drink loads of it in the summer.

Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 5, 2005
A hazy yellow beer with a tall fluffy white head. Heavy aroma of yeast, wheat and citrus with notes of spices. Wheaty and citrusy flavor with coriander and yeast notes. Citrusy and fresh in the beginning with a nice sweet somewhat candied finish that definately makes this beer a cut above the typical all-wheaty-yeasty wit beer! Foamy and soft mouthful. A very nice and tasty beer and excellent for a wheat beer!

TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Bottled. Purchased at Delirium Cafe. Hazed orange-maber with the biggest head I’ve ever seen. A California redwood sized white head rests upon the partial amount of beer that has gathered at the bottom of the glass.Nose is strong spice, yeast, citrus fruits, and perfumy notes. The taste is sweetened malts, light spice, yeast hint of bubblegum, and grains. Body is very effervescent. Finish is spice, orange peel, wheat and some meddling notes of yeast.

JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2004
(draught) Fully hazy, (not quite dried) hay-coloured beer, like pineapple juice from the can; good white head, not really stable. Wheaty nose, and a bit of cigarette tobacco-ish (could be the environment where sampling), also some aromas as from some fruit-flavoured ice cream. All, however, quite faint. In the taste, the wheat-impression is repeated, bit of coriander, but not overpowering. Quite refreshing, well-bodied for a witbier. Another witbier. I wonder why people keep trying?? In the case of S.W. I could understand, for consumption on the premises. But elsewhere?
