Gift from my Secret Santa Winter 2010. AWESOME! Pours a perfect yeasty brownish gold from the bottle - plenty of sediment through and through. Nose is thick with beautiful yeast (custard, apple sauce, cinnamon). Flavor is quite deep: leather, mulled apple, cinnamon, dark flowers, a great Tripel character and nice, moldy, mellowed wine wood. Nice.

33 cl bottle. Pours hazy orange red coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of spices and marzipan with notes of alcohol. Sweet and fruity flavour of spices, yeast, oak, marzipan and alcohol. Spicy and warming alcoholic finish.

Sweet and sour notes in the aroma; as a concentrated hoegaarden (good). Thick(!) unexpected for tripple. Fantastic balance, alcohol hidden, sweet and sour, not bitter or alcoholic. Very nice. Wintery thick, yet fresh. Purchased in Ølbutikken.

Bottle shared by chriso sampled on 3/6/10: Pours a hazy deep bronze orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet complex dark caramel and brown sugar with some black cherry. Starts with good rich caramely and toffee complexity with some nice fruity esters and oak before a full, slightly warming finish. Very complex, balanced and enjoyable.

nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2010
33cl bottle sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours a cloudy, orange amber with a creamy white head. Boozy aroma, banana, Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet, boozy, candy, honey. I don’t get any oak in either the nose or the flavor. Full bodied with a lasting sweetness.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - MAR 8, 2010
The bottle looks great as well as the beer in the glass. Orange-brown, a bit cloudy, nice head. Starts strong but not alcoholic. Very spicy from the beginning with notes of christmas spices, cinnamon, nuts and ginger snap. Also fruity notes of raisins. Very well balanced warming finish. An awesome brew!

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Light barrel aging characteristics show up in the aroma - toffee and vanilla. Creamier than regular Tsjeeses with a light sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 Lots of oak, fairly dry, light cotton candy, herbal hops. Actually not too bad, decent BA’d beer.
