Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle with Craig, Stella, Fin, Loz and Traci, at the "Whats This Label Supposed To Be Anyway?" tasting. Thanks Craig for bring this one all the way from The Struise Farm! (And thanks Stella for sharing as I understand Urbain sent this bottle for you.)

Bright gold pour, nice cream white layer of foam. Warm biscuit, floral/daisy aroma, birch wood. Clean light grainy malt, a bit of husky lager malt. Dry coconut husk, a nice subtle buttery finish. This feels like a much more finished expression of Tsjeeses. Nice!

henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2009
From 75cl bottle - Beautiful slightly hazy deep amber body, fine sparkle, creamy off white head that could last a little longer; Very fine nutty yeast soft nose with an almost Calvados sharpness and aroma accompanying, very nice; Very soft textured body with a big very soft carbonation, super balanced, could be a little more powerful; Medium long finish with a very special mild alcohol burn, again the Calvados barrel is there. Very interesting and drinkable beer, somehow the barrel or age has taken away the spicy touch (which I like a lot) from the hop and spices in the normal version. I have tasted the small bottle from this year (2008) and find it even better, just havent had the time to rate it yet.
