brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of red wine and balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruit. Green apple, spice, lemon, and a bit of spice. Nice sourness. Decent acetic notes, but still a nice lactic quality. Lemon, green apple, raisin, cherry, and plum. Brown sugar and caramel sweetness, oak, and maybe a hint of spice.

Aspetto: marrone scuro, schiuma abbondante, marroncino dorata, fine e decisamente persistente. Aroma: agrodolce, cacao e caramello. Intenso e delizioso. Gusto: buonissimo agrodolce, anche se non molto intenso. Si sentono anche abbondanti caramello e soprattutto cacao. Carbonizzazione e corpo. Buonissima birra!

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2016
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a dark Burgundy-red one with a light creamy brown egg-shell colored bubbly top. Not to extreme on the aroma even if it kicks a punch when you inhale. Soft vinegar with red berries and traces of mild vinous wood. The taste is as smooth as always with Struise: Loaded with acidic red berries and woody red wine vinegar. Dragon fruit and kumquat with lots of sour gooseberries and a strong vinous touch. Its quite drying on the mouthfeel, so much that I would call it mouthdrying. Its pleasant to drink, somewhat unique in the taste. Interesting experience, and Im one of those lucky guys that has another bottle that wont be opened for many years. Already looking forward to that day. 06.02.2013
