Interesting stuff. Better than the normal Tsjeeses. Way less spices and I like that. Very fruity aroma. Yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Fruity flavors as well, lightly spiced, light bitter. Nice balance, flavorful, still easy going. Thanks Mes!

Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Fruity (apricot), a bit sour and yeasty aroma. Taste is sweet, almost sugary with flavors of peach, mango, apricot ... Some sourness in the edges. Dry aftertaste.

i don’t know how he continues to get such a stellar array of beers but once again Mike came through with a Struisse release that is worth trying. I hope at some point the regular Tsjeeses makes it to the United States so I can see what effect the aging has had on it. This one is worth the hype if you can find it.
Aroma / Appearance - A cloudy brown body swirls fluidly around the glass releasing the smell of banana bread, fruit and malt into the air. Complete in every way there is nothing lacking that I could find.
Flavor / Palate - The first sip was a rich blend of yeast, nuttiness, dark chocolate and a hint of woodiness. The yeasty finish caps off an excellent experience that stands among the best in the world. Hopefully this will be released again in wider circles.
Draft at Ebenezers Struise Week. Pretty nice oak aged tripel. Oak shines through without becoming overbearing. Gets a little hot in the aroma as it warms. I’d like to rerate this one in the future. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Draft @ Ebenezer’s. Pours a bright, intense orange-tinged golden color; thin off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Loads of honey, white pepper, and complex yeast in the aroma; gorgeous, dry peppery notes; touches of vanilla and toastiness; restrained alcohol. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; gorgeous amounts of white pepper, honey and toasty, dry yeastiness; some floral and herbal notes, and dry toastiness. Very drinkable, mouthwatering beer. Great stuff. Medium finish: pepper, dry yeast, and toasty malts; very slight oakiness.

33 cl bottle. Five seconds after uncapping white foam began to materialize and push its way slowly up the neck. Poured a murky brown with a rather tame head. Nose is soft caramel and dough with hints of sherry, cheese and mushroom. Medium body with lively carb. Taste is apricot, candied orange peel, sour mash and bitter herbs. Complex and unique with a delightful sweetness. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle received via trade with Koelschtrinker. Pours hazy orange with a large, frothy, white head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (straw, meal), light hop (grass), heavy yeast (earth, barnyard, horse blanket) with notes of oak, wine, and pear. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Long duration, light sweetness and bitterness, moderate acidity.
