kajser27 (1563) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 24, 2016
Gusher, hazy yellow-orange colored, strong white puffy head, long lasting and nice lacing. Aroma is tart ripe fruit, some orange, straw, spicy phenolic and yeast. Taste is medium sweet malt, bit caramel, strong fruity tartness but medium- sourness, some orange and straw, medium spicy-phenolic bitterness, some yeast and bread, dry finish. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, oily.

Calisky (2668) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 26, 2016
1ere bouteille partie en gushing, reste 5cl a boire... tonnant 2e bouteille ok. Couleur orange trouble, petite mousse. Nez fruit, brett, fruit verts, alumette, genre sour ale. Gout pareils avec houblonn citronn et note lactique. Bon corps. Fin sur amertume-aigre-fruit-agrumes. Bizarre pour le style et surtout pour Struise..

blackisle (2257) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle 33cl. (BB 12/2017). What a gusher! Despite the warnings on this site and my cautious handling of the bottle about half of the content went astray. The rest poured into a teku glass. Cloudy dark amber, small frothy off-white head, light lacing; sourish aroma, peach, apricot, apple, barnyard; taste is medium sweet and sour, fruity, light honey, with long duration, light bittersweet finish, spicy notes; medium body, oily to sticky texture, lively carbonation; very nice.

La moiti de la bouteille ma explos la gueule. Du reste que jai got, trs levur (do lexplosion). Armes et gots de levures "fromagres" qui couvrent un peu lensemble.en cela, elle ressemble lOrval, en moins subtile et quilibre. Bonne et dsaltrante quand mme.

bartlebier (3632) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
33cl, 2014ish vintage shared at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel [email protected] Freiburg JAN2016. - Again, a major gusher, despite a 24h rest: about half remained in the bottle, mainly coating the bottle from inside as foam. Struises beers are proving out to be less and less ideal for tastings or idealistic drinkers who prefer at least 2/3 of the bottle to end up in their glasses. - Luckily had this once before - median impression: brett makes a yeasty sweet-tooth barley wine thin and jumpy. - Flattish in the nose apart from a Co2-powered sourish tinge and thinned out fruit caramels. - - No direction in flavours really: its a dirty sugary free-for-all that throws itself up in the air and sees where it lands. Boozy Granny Smiths coated in supermarket honey. Fizzy mouthfeel. Wipe & next.

brnandersen (3514) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2015
33 cl. bottle, huge gusher upon opening. What beer was left, poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a huge, white head that fades to big, fluffy lumps. Fruity aroma with bretts, yeasts, caramel malts, spicy and earthy notes. Somewhat tart. Taste is lightly sourish with sweeter caramel-vanilla undertones. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a fizzy carbonation. Finishes dry with tart fruits and bretts. Strange one - Id expected sweeter with the bacteria less prominent. Still worth cleaning the table.

Kavu (4390) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2015
0,33l bottle @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear golden with a high foamy head. Aroma is slightly sour malts with some belge yeast. Flavor is slightly sour malts, belge yeast, alcohol and some hops. Good stuff.

Beertobealive (540) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - DEC 11, 2015
Pours a huge foamy white head. Aromas of light hops and lemongrass. Hazy orange body. Thick in mouth with feeling of marzipan. Pleasant balance but more suitable for spring or summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mjs (6728) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2015
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 05/2019, at One Pint Pub, 20151204) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tartness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were spiciness, tartness, sweetness, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was woody and bitter. A pleaseant and complex yeasty brew.
