My mind was blown the first time I had the normal Tsjeeses a couple years ago and ever since I’ve been wanting to try the reserva. Finally it hits stores on the west coast. This 33cl bottle pours a hazy orange color with a medium white head and high carbonation. Surprisingly smokey aroma with a hint of orange marmalade as well. Sweet juicy fruit sticks out and a little malt as well, but the fruitiness is pretty overriding. Boozy and sweet with a tannic and dry finish. A little yeasty and rough in the finish. I feel like I’m completely missing this one for some reason.

TrefwoordPunk (1206) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a tiny and fading white head and an aroma of brown sugar, wood, yeast, banana, bourbon, thyme, rosemary, toffee, overripe plums, vanilla, peach and madarin. The taste is sweet with a medium carbonation, medium to full body and some nice medium herbal hoppy finish. Nice beer, but I thought the original beer was better than the barrel aged version.

Ysok02 (1564) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Robe ambrée, fine mousse crémeuse, persistante. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes maltées, épicées, boisée, pointe de bourbon... sur un fond de caramel, de fruits jaunes confits, très élégant et complexe. Bouche à l’attaque riche mais très élégante, du fruit, des épices, une bulle crémeuse à souhait et une longueur kilométrique sur une finale boisée mais qui reste fraîche. Une très grand bière, en effet un cran au dessus de tsjeeses élevée en fûts de Porto.

heman (1005) - Tychy, POLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Barwa miedziana, piwo przymglone, piana mało intensywna, ale trwała. Aromat intensywny, karmel, melasa, suszone owoce (daktyle, figi), nuty rumowe, przyprawy w tle, zdaje się, że o korzennym charakterze. W tle wytrawna nuta drewna. W smaku pełne, początkowo słodkie, jednak powoli przechodzi w wytrawny finisz. Analogicznie do zapachu, ale z mocniej wyczuwalnym drewnem na finiszu, nieco cierpkim, z taninami, osadzającym się na długo w przełyku. Finisz to muśnięcie alkoholu, sama nuta bourbon-u raczej na granicy autosugestii.

visionthing (5363) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2017
On tap (2014 Marker’s Mark) at TCBW, Tallinn. Slightly hazy amber with a b off-white head. Rather fruity and vinous aroma with mild bourbon notes, wood, hints spices and alcohol. Fairly sweet, but some acidity notes and tannins. A bit too much on the sweet side, but quite enjoyable.

carlom (58) - ITALY - APR 27, 2017
Colore ambrato, schiuma poco persistente, al naso malto, leggeri sentori di legno. Sapore di vaniglia e leggeri richiami alla stagionatura in botte. finale dolce.Una birra equilibrata ma senza emozioni.

beerplace (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
330ml bottle from BeerShop.com.ua. Vintage 2011. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Aroma is very fruity, sweet, some alcohol. Similar taste with some caramel notes. Slightly boozy. Couldn’t find any bourbon barrel aging presence. Just a good Belgian beer.

gr_pa (702) - siemianowice, POLAND - APR 23, 2017
Hazy brown, thick head. Aroma: plums, biscuits, hay, peaches, bit alcohol, maybe some wooden hints. Rather dry, medium to full body, medium to high bitterness. Belgian style fruity body, quite a lot malt accents. Long woody finish.
