4/5 rDev -2.9%
Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy dark mahogany pour with a two finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is malt forward with hints of caramel, dark fruit, apple, rye bread, booze, toffee, tobacco, and subtle bubblegum. The taste mirrors the nose with hints of brown bread, caramel, green apples, toffee, rye, booze, and dark fruits. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with minimal carbonation and good balance. Overall, a nice Triple, but nothing all that special...

Poured a orange tinted gold with decent head and lace on top of an aroma that is characterized by a bourbon-based woodiness with vanilla and some candi sugar, yeast and booze as well as touches of tropcial fruit - definitely not your average triple's aroma. The fruit taste is minimal in this triple but that's fine with me as the beer is smooth, light to medium bodied, not boozy but touches of bourbon come through, some real good malt sweetness and that's my preference. Crisp, clean finish complements a unique beer.

Sampled from a 33cl bottle purchased at the De Struise shop in Bruges. Best by 26-12-2018.
Reddish amber with a murky finish and a small beige head. Some rye and some bourbon in the aroma along with sweet malts. The bourbon is well behaved in the taste along with rye and rich, sweet malts. A chewy feel with a low carbonation.
It would probably be even better with some age but I like it.

750ml corked a capped bottle served in a Karmeliet tulip glass.
A: Pours a clear (but bit hazy) copper color forming a medium thin bubbled yellow head. Medium retention and lots of lingering and molasses left in the glass. A thin layer remains forever on the top
S: Sweet caramel, grapes, wood, whiskey, candy, bubble gum and alcohol. Perfect in the nose being a bit boozy to be just perfect. A very malty and fruity beer. The rye gives it a very smooth texture and balance. The cherry wood is just wonderful
T: Very sweet and fruity upfront. Again, strong notes of wood, whiskey and grapes. The notes of rye are a must. It gives it a great texture and taste to the beer. Notes of candy sugar and roasted malts. Belgian bready yeasts. Spicy and complex. End is quite boozy. Light hops bitterness, as expected
M: Heavy, creamy, smooth and molasses body. Light carbonation and a sweet, malty and woody aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Just another De Struise masterpiece

750ml cork and capped offering poured into a matching Struise cervoise. The brew appears a clear copper to mahogany color with reddish clarity seen through the body. A yellowish tan finger fades slowly leaving patches of lace on the glass.
The smell includes a minor note of minerals and dark fruits like raisin or plum/prune. Plenty of neutral alcohol esters blend to a toasty rye grain aspect that emerges more as it warms up. There is a hint of belgian candy sweetness contrasted by herbal hops.
The taste is that of caramel or toffee malt with minerals and alcohol like pear or apple skins. Some fruity alcohol and toasty rye imparts almost a buttery aspect into the finish. The rye is a unique twist here as it takes the standard strong dark belgian struise offering off in a slightly different path.
This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest to lighter level of carbonation. There is a lot of toasty malt character and alcohol here but it all plays well together. My only gripe is the trace mineral inclusion. All things considered, this is another fine offering from De Struise.
