Shark_Pants (724) - AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2015
Glad I read other reviews first because I then opened it over the sink, as about half the bottle immediately evacuated and ended up down the drain. Not a good start. When the remainder settles, it is a deep amber with lots of lacing. The aroma is like a tripel or belgian golden strong ale but with a wild yeast sourness as well. The taste is exactly as the smell suggests, with a very good balance between the sweetness and sourness, funkiness and acidity. This beer is quite an achievement but is really let down by the gushing.

Jävligt bra krona! Ljus grumlig färg! Svag doft av körsbär??!! Någon? Inte mycket doft. Lite körsbär?? Går i smaken tillsammans med en viss sötma & maltighet. Lätt kropp. Jävligt bra syra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle at home - or what was left of it after it came flying out of the bottle. Open with caution! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hermod (7574) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours golden color with a huge frothy white head. High carbonation. Had to let this settle for a while. Green apples, apricots, barnyard in aroma, quite pleasant. Flavor has apricots, grain, barnyard mostly. More apricots in the dry finish. Some alcohol warmth as well. Really pleasant, but too bad about the carbonation.

Excalibur123 (470) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2015
Presenta amarillo oro algo turbio con levadura en suspensin, media corona de espuma y baja retencin; aromas a levadura belga, azcar candy, pera y alcohol; en boca entrada media con ligero amargor, notas a flores y caramelo; pos gusto un tanto seco y dulce; cuerpo y carbnico medios en una cerveza equilibrada y compleja, no tan dulce como otras belgas, la ms sencilla de las Struise que he probado.

Cluniac (73) - - JAN 27, 2015
Appearance a nice amber, but bottle had funky yeast sediment. Aroma a sweet and sour, not my fav. Taste simalar, not pleasant in my opinion, and quite spicy. Palate equally rough snd not creamy or smooth feeling. Overall dissappointed, wont likely go for this one again.

BeerViking (4605) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Hazy gold with a thin head, lactic sourness on the nose plus faint apricot. Palate is fruity, estery, sour and lightly spicy. Like a sour-tripel hybrid.

fiammanghilla (972) - Genova, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottiglia 33cl, comprata da giangaspero e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con molta schiuma. Al naso è acida, con una punta di frutta. In bocca è carbonatissima, corpo medio. Conferma una certa acidità, malto e lievito in quantità. Finale amaro ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
330l bottle. After having lost half a bottle of beer, I opened this with caution. Only lost about 20ml.aroma is light hazy yellow with big bubbly white head. Aroma is extremely sour and tart. Taste is equally sour. Very dry and heavily carbonated. I quite like it but is it meant to taste like this?! Odd for this style
