Bottle (500 ml). Hazy reddish brown with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is weird, but quite interesting. Theres strong vanilla/bourbon notes at first followed by hints of red fruits, caramel, wood and light winey notes. Taste is also weird, but in an less enjoyable way. Moderate sweetness along red fruits, light acetic notes, fainted bourbon, vanilla and wood. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Really complex, but not in a good way. Complexity comes from elements that are not needed in a Flemish Bruin and doesnt add much to the beer. I cant even imagine the base beer with all those layers over it. Its not bad, but its not Struise good.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Small brown head. Opaque brown body. Earthy wooden linoleum aroma with vinous wild berry notes. Sour-sweet perfumy mineraly fruity taste with wooden spicy herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly astringent mouthfeel. Dry-acidic perfumy vinous wooden aftertaste with linoleum and old book notes. Really nice and clear. Highly drinkable. (0.15l draft at Haand 13.)

Dpaquet (420) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
Pour is hazy dark brown with little beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is fruity, lots of oak, vanilla, red wine, caramelish, bready, tart. Taste has some tart cherries, oak, a tad acetic, some sweetness, winey. Medium body and medium carb. Not sure about this one. Not bad but far from great.

On tap at Churckey. Dark brown body with medium head. Nose is malts, caramel and sweet. Taste also of roasty malts, oaks, some sour of course and bourbon notes. Funky combination.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, vinous notes, a bit of roastiness, dark fruits, oak and a bit of bourbon. Harsh sour flavor with vinegar, oak, dark fruits and roastiness. Medium-bodied. Weird.

Struise never fails to impress me. This is a complex, rich brew that is an enjoyment in every sip.

caesar (6974) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2013
Bottled. Slight hazy ruby color, short brownish head, quickly disappearing. Aroma is a lot of wooden barrel, some red wine, hint of tartness, slight metallic, cardboard. Medium sour in taste, bit sweet, quite fruity, bit thin. Lacks a bit of body actually, whether that should come from more tartness or lactic acid, or from other flavors. Medium in carbonation. Not much of the biscuity bourbon notes, just in the flavor a bit. Seems to be more from the bourgogne. Or at least, from wooden barrels. It has some complexity, but all in all the description makes you expect a lot more to be honest. During the bottle, it actually improves in complexity, maybe because it warms up a bit or because of some yeast notes adding complexity. Also, makes it less thin. So, as with many sour beers, be sure to pour some (not a lot ofc) yeast with it.
