Kolor bordowo brunatny, jest na tyle ciemny, ze trudno jest stwierdzi? czy piwo jest klarowne. Piana w kolorze be?owym, do?? wysoka i ?rednio trwa?a. Aromat intensywnie winny, wytrawny, nuty czerwonego winna pl?cz? si? z owocowymi, s? migda?y, dro?d?e i delikatne akcenty drzewa. Smak zwraca uwag? swoj? cierpko?ci? i kwaskowato?ci?, przez ktre prbuj? si? przebi? delikatnie s?odkie migda?y Ponownie nuty winne, wytrawne i dro?d?e. W tym wszystkim pojawia si?, nieco lekko wycofana, pestkowa goryczka. Piwo to ujmuje swoj? pe?ni? i g??bi?. Po ogrzaniu pojawiaj? si? delikatne akcenty alkoholowe o zabarwieniu winnym. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego.

2011. Bottle out of the in-laws Xmas lucky dip box, consumed February 2016. Bottled 09/2014. Vinyl black with ruby glints and a shrinking beige collar. Sharp lemony overripe pineapple and nectarine aroma with darker liquorice, soy, balsamic and burnt dark sugar becoming fudge suggestions leaving you unsure what the hell is coming next. Squinting mellow lime, rusty vinegar and cream cheese is what, again slathered with juice from that barely edible Orval-hinting mouldy pineapple you forgot about and left furring in the cupboard for months. Juicy tart grape and sneaking tropical fruit. Shrivelled black tannic grape skins soured to buggery. Balsamic splashes. Tides of BLACKBERRY. Sour without making me want to roll around on the carpet clutching my gall bladder. And try as I might I cant detect a droplet of alcohol. Worth every one of its 291 calories. Wow this is good. I forgot beer could taste like this. Puckering and lovely.

Apple vinegar, a bit too spiky and aggressive, hints of residual caramel sweetness, burned sugar, overly dry figs and apple peel, light boozy

bytemesis (7939) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Botte sample at RB Best. 2012 vintage. Pours clear deep reddish brown, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is berries, acetone, lemons, more finger nail polish, some date. Flavor is medium sweet, medium tart, fairly funky and woody, loads of acetone and vinegar. Medium body. Huh. This was NOT the beer of the festival.

Sour red brown en barrel de 8 % abv et 22 plato, pour 20 ebu. Mon exemplaire avait 2 ans et 4 mois de bouteille, mais pouvait attendre septembre 2019, voire mme lternit, parce que ce nest pas moi qui irait le repcher .. Javais dj critiqu le peu de valeur de lexprience des Struise sur la Ypres classique, mais ici cela dpasse les bornes et mme les tranches ... Couleur brun roux sombre (53 ebc), lopacit prononce. Mousse brun clair qui nest quun nappage de surface. Armes de ft de chne, lie de vin, bois mouill, sarrasin, cerises noires, le tout arros de vinaigre! 1re bouche fluide sur un affreux mlange bois mouill/raisins au pressoir. Arrire-bouche dsquilibre en diable. 2me au mlange dun dsquilibre total, et dune aigreur qui vous cale sur votre chaise. Arrire-bouche sans la moindre valeur. Je nai pas le courage dcrire la suite, parce que cela me fait de la peine pour les Struise .. Jambes totalement lisses. Alcool inoprant devant pareil dsastre .. il ne sait par o commencer, et dmissionne de suite. Finale qui a failli passer lvier .. un comble absolu pour les Struise .. CONCLUSION: un ami disait de moi que jaime lutter contre les incongruits brassicoles .. Cest un exemple typique de quelque chose qui est dans lincongru et lextrme .. Pourquoi les Struise simpliquent-ils l-dedans? Rsultat a minima, leur premier score ngatif, et comme les Struise ne font pas dans l peu prs, rsultat nul, un comble total .. Mais en fait cest plus lamentable que lamentable, et plus affreux que affreux .. Exactement comme ce qui sest pass Ypres pendant la guerre!! les gaz toxiques!!
