From a Champane sized bottle, Great lable a little different than the normal version ( Flashy pink and dark blue ). Loads of yeast sitting at the bottom of the bottle. The beer pours a fantastic orange and reddish color and the beautiful off white head stay for ever on this most aromatic nectar. The smell is very complex with lots of cookie aromas touches of nuts, honey, spices (?), red berries, wood, wet dog, sigarecase, some peppery yeast and ripe peaches. Taste is rich and elegant with hints of bread, croisants, red berries, pits of stonefruits, wood, cedar, mint and soft hops. A rich taste with a dry wood caracter that works perfect. This was the best of the session.

TSJ n°11. Then the same brewing I have tasted with the Tsjeeses "no" reserva. What a difference !!! If it’s the only fact of a 6 months in oak barrels more (info of the website as commercial coment ... I haven’t verified..), it’s a total revolution. First reason : no smoke at all (as in the single version) Deuxième raison : un arôme quasi de trappiste, avec des notes deprunes, de cake aux pommes, de croissant, et une pointe de beurre de Normandie. (Bon, c’est vrai le nez du "single" Tsjeeses n’était pas mal non plus, et ne laissait aucunement présager de la bouche pleine de fumée...) Troisième raison : une première bouche très jolie, sur de la figue, du raisin avec pourriture noble, de la datte et des pruneaux . Quatrième raison : une seconde bouche très équilibrée mais forte, dans le style trappiste. Mouthfeel, isn’t it ? Cinquième raison : une finale vineuse, à la texture un peu huileuse, remplie de superbes épices, mais toujours très équilibrée. Le bonheur de retrouver la qualité des Struise (DSB), après l’impasse de ce Tsjeeses qui m’a fait très peur hier (ooooh Tsjeeses !!) Conclusion : don’t be afraid to buy a Tsjeeses, but look if it’s well a Reserva, except if you like to live in a "smoky country" as the foggy Tsjeeses. (Please could you notice that I haven’t say f....)
