Bov (12458) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2009
from crackedkettle.com - cloudy dark orange colour under a solid bright white foam; beautiful lace; aroma of yeast and peaches with notes of wood and apples; very sweet and with a robust malt body, slightly oily, long fruity and woody finish with tons of residual sugars - too sweet to be really great

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2009
From the bottle flows a hazy, glowing, deep amber liquid, substantial in body and crowned with a whipped head of off-white froth. Bunching at the edges, the bubbly foam leaves sticky, jagged lines of jagged lacing that resemble lightning strikes across the sky. The nose is centered in well caramelized candy sugars, though soft, vanilla-laden oak asserts significant influence. Funk and citrus elements present in the regular version are mellowed considerably by the assertive, yet delicate wood. Flavors too are sweet, soft, and easy-going. Bronzed, blonde candy sugar, oak, and distant hints of maple are most prominent, though some spicy citrus peel and faint coriander are also there. Dangerously drinkable for a 10% ABV brew, the palate is both smooth and substantial, without any annoying stickiness. A subtle alcohol burn is all that holds it back. One of the better tripels Ive encountered in ages, this is an entirely different animal than the non-oaked version of Tsjeeses. Different, yet equal, in all material respects. Very good brew.

Svesse (8284) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2009
(Bottle, Gollem, Amsterdam, 2 Aug 2009) Cloudy orangey brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of dried fruit (apricots, raisins), brown sugar and hints of oak and vanilla. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, dried apricots, burnt sugar, hints of wood lurking in the background and a spicy, malty, slightly vinous finish. Full body, sweet with a balanced spicy bitterness. Tasty, warming and very nice beer.

Storm_Warning (83) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Currently drinking while typing. We start with a rich aroma of sweet fruity maltiness, almost smells like peaches and pineapple, no hints of alcohol on the nose really just sweetness and a light wood note. Pours a coppery amber colour with a bubbly off-white head which didnt last too long. The taste is maybe a bit too sweet for a tripel, sweet Danish bread and malts are prominent and combine well with a gentle hint of oak. Slight resinous hops in the back of a pleasant aftertaste. Nice medium/full body, the texture is slightly slick with a soft carbonation. Very nice brew overall, just a bit too sweet for me I think though the alcohol is well masked.

Huhzubendah (3657) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Side by side with regular Tsjeeses. The beer appears a hazy and murky copper hue with a thin cap. The aroma offers Belgian yeast, bread, booze, malt, caramels. Smells nice. The aroma and flavor are distinctly Belgian in nature. A graceful flavor and feel on the palate. Soft and elegant with just a gentle wrming alcohol finish. Lingering notes of caramels and yeasty bread. Fairly light in body with moderately low carbonation. Another solid beer from De Struise.

TET (2876) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2012
A reddish brown beer with a weak and beige head. Aroma of fruits, dried fruits, lots of toffeeish sweetness, some yeast and spices; overally, aroma is fruitfull and sweet. Taste is also fruitfull and quite sweet, yeast, some strenght from alcohol, hint of marsmellows, drying spices that concentrates in the aftertaste. Also some dark fruits and even dry smoke can be found from the taste. Full bodied and quite slowly to drink. Quite controversial but tastefull beer, complex and fruitfull, barley wine -nuancees.
