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.

yespr (48087) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2007
From 33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a one finger thick white head, long lasting becoming thick and creamy. Aroma is slight citric and yeasty, slight malty sweet and spiced. Sweet malt flavoured with spice notes (some darker spices as well) and complex yeast profile, but very classic belgian. Mellow malty finish with presence of bitterness.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Bottled. hazy yellowish orange colour with big white head. Aroma is acidic citrus, wheat and some sweeter notes from caramel and malts, some slightly fudgeish notes too. Flavour is acidic fruits, wheat, nectary notes (or sweetish fruity notes). Also quite much spices and herbs are coming through. Decent witbier, but not very "creative". Not as exciting and experimental as many other Struise beers I’ve had.

omhper (25805) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2005
Bottled. Hazy pale golden. Fruity buckwheat aroma. Fresh with rounded lively mouthfeel and an unusually solid maltiness for a witbier. Estery notes of tangerine. Very drinkable.
