(And thanks Stella for sharing as I understand Urbain sent this bottle for you.)BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008
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!
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a huge white head and a hazy golden body. Aroma of oak, dark fruit, apple, pear and raisin. Taste is caramel, fruits, dates, and alcohol. Syrupy and lightly carbonated. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2008

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. mjs (7259) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2009
