Draught pours honey color with minimal white head. Aromas are malty sweet and syrupy. Taste is malty caramel, oaky, and vanilla with a nice hop finish. Palate is medium with average carbonation. Finish is slightly bitter, but very balanced. Overall, a delicious brew. I could drink lots of this one.

Martinus (4349) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2012
Slightly hazy, orange amber beer, beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, apricot, wood, vanilla and other spices. Flavour malty, slight wood astringency, caramel, and candy sugar. Finish slightly astringent with some lingering sweetness.
(From 33cl bottle @ home. 2011 vintage. Wondering how it will age, so will keep a few bottles for the next year(s).)

Lubiere (12265) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2012
A hazed orange amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a sweet fruit caramel malt with treacle, light watermelon, OK. In mouth, a sweet smooth caramel with candy sugar, licorice, molasses, a tad of light coffee, alcohol warmth, not bad, but I was expected a bit more. On tap at Rattle’n’Hum, Dec. 28 2011.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Aroma of applesauce, grapes, and slight cinnamon. Strong nose. Pours super hazy with a big frothy head. Super big. Tastes sweet of wheat, slight floral, and just a hint of spices. Solid Belgian. Reminds me of a good champagne.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2012
330cl Bottle Pour is hazy and reddish looking very christmas and with an initially frothy head which settled down to a light layer of froth. The aroma of cinnamon and oak also play the holiday part. Sweet flavor and sticky with holiday spices, yeast and oak. Creamy body, very nicely done!

Shared a bottle at the Bayou with my wife.
I prefer the regular Tsjeeses to the Reserva. I got notes of caramel, wood, butter, vanilla, smoke,cinnamon. There was a sticky mouthfeel to it as well. I had hoped for more and was disappointed. Maybe some age would do this beer some good.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Amber in color with a nice off-white head. Intense wine aroma to this, almost like port. A sweet grape aroma nearly overwhelms it. Some vanilla as well as oak, caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Some overripe fruits in there, too. The flavor is quite sweet with lots of oak, wine, grape, and plum flavors. A touch of vanilla as well as the caramel/toffee, and brown sugar notes. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a dark cream colored head. Fruity aroma with yeast and light oak. Oak and citrus flavor with red fruit, malt, yeast, and spice. Medium bodied. Caramel and spice lingers with yeast, light citrus, and red fruit.

Thanks to grownfool for this one. Pours cloudy brown, with a loose white head. Smells like grape and some other fruity notes, oak, and...chestnuts? maybe? Tastes like candied grapes, oak and more chestnuts. Some bourbon and vanilla as it warms.
