From a microbrewery. Oak-aged. It has a funny label of a drunk looking guy wearing a Santa hat with stars. I wonder what it means. It pours into a chalice with a nice creamy head. It looks dark brown, blurry. It smells like plums, licorice, brown sugar, some liquid bread, dark cherries. Medium body, medium to low carbonation, fruity in the middle and an explosion of flavors that hides the alcohol. This is pretty amazing.

2009 Bottle into Tremens tulip

A- deep amber with 1 finger head
S- funky, malty, bready, anise. Earthy, celeriac, malt.
T- awesome Belgian dubbel, tastes like a quad... Coriander, belgian yeast, sweet malt, sourness , metallic iron...
M- medium to full. Coats well and lingers long.
O- delicious. Nose is deceptive. Taste is remarkable. No alcohol presence whatsoever. Love what destruisse has to offer overall and this is a great treat. Reminds me so much of their neighbor in westvleteren just a few K away. Grab if you have the opportunity. DeS is so small we are lucky to have any in the US. Those in the know should be all over DeStruisse...Pannepot anyone? Miss my time there

Taken at the 16th Essen Christmas Beer festival 2010.

Honey brown in colour, they use Pilsner, light wheat and caramunich 120 malts according to the festival notes.

The smell was of fruits, spices and malt. Not suprising when you realise they add orange peel and grapes in the mash along with mint leaves and cardamom.

Unfiltered and unpasteurised the beer retains all those flavours mentioned above, add the three hop varieties from around Poperinge and you have one hell of a beer.

The flavours somehow blend into a fantastic tasting beer, each sip being slightly different from the last one. It is more of a 'barleywine' than a anything else, but whatever style you choose to put it in, it is a wonderful drink.

Draught at The Trappist. Had this side by side with Pannepot, and was surprised to find that I liked this much better. Amazing beer and the best tripel that I"ve had yet. Orange-gold with a creamy head. Incredibly expressive fruity aroma with lots of peach, pineapple, apricot and apple, along with some yeasty spiciness. The flavor is just an awesome balance of fruit, spice, and alcohol. Medium bodied with smooth bubbles. I"m dying to try the reserva now

Didn't gush, but somehow trickled over the top.

A: Murky golden color. Creamy head.

S: Distant honey, some citrus, spices. Spices however, even though pronounced, are very gentle, not in your face.

T/M: Quite complex, similar to the nose, with additions of bread and sweet malt. And again, as with the nose, the taste is multifaceted, yet none overwhelms the other. Alcohol is well hidden. Exceptionally balanced.

It was great with pork as well as bleu cheese. Had great expectations for this brew and was very pleased. Rather expensive at $10.99 for a 330 ml bottle.

A: Peach amber with a large white head that fades a little too quickly. No lacing to speak of.

S: The usual holiday spices (esp. nutmeg, clove), fruits (both dry and ripe, like apples and cherries), toasted and sweet caramel-like barley. Slight herbal scent, perhaps from the hops.

T: Herbal bitterness tempers rich, sweet, caramel malts. Serious dryness and mild fruitiness. Warms as it goes down. Long, smooth, sweet, and slightly sticky finish.

M: Incredibly full and smooth, like Pannepot. Doesn't show the alcohol at all, but certainly packs a punch. Very little carbonation, so it drinks a little like a spirit.

O: Give me more! Delicious and complex, I see myself drinking this nightly in the dead of winter. Really outstanding.

Pours a cloudy yellow-brown. Decent head which fades quickly and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is really interesting, and hard to describe. Hoppy and malty on the tongue, definitely tasting the spices as well. Alcohol warms you at the back of the throat. Overall a damn good beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - Cloudy golden apricot with an average sized foamy, bubbly, white head. Decent retention that reduces into a thin, foamy lace.

S - Full of golden fruit and citrus aroma. Apple, peach, apricot, orange, and lemon all pretty strong and have a pretty juicy aroma. There is a very slight funk/pseudo-tart aspect to the fruitiness. Well spiced with some ginger, coriander, cinnamon, and orange rind amongst others. Slight yeast aroma is present, but not overly strong. Very full, juicy type of aroma.

T - Similar to the nose with a lot of golden and citrus and some tropical fruit. Sweet candi sugar along with oranges/tangerines, apricots, peaches, and apple make a sweet fruit mix. Good amount of yeast and a lot of different spices (similar to nose). A very slight funk to it as well along with a touch of mustiness and hay. Some vanilla as well. Very juicy/fruity flavor.

M - Medium body with a healthy amount of carbonation. Very smooth and creamy.

D - A very drinkable beer with the alcohol very well hidden. Well balanced and even though it is well spiced and pretty sweet, it doesn't overload the palate and I would gladly drink another right after I finish this one.

Notes: Best before Dec. 2014. Another great beer from a great brewery. Sweet and spiced flavors mix around well along with the golden fruitiness. Wonderful beer that would drink well all year long. I would gladly drink this again and definitely recommend this.

330ml bottle bought online from the Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam...

Poured a rich coppery orange colour with a slight yeasty haze. White head poured pretty tight, thick and foamy then faded to thin covering with thick edging... decent amount of carbonation bubbles to the surface... quite a lot of sticky lacing...

Aroma - Lots of rich, spicy and slightly tropical fruits (mangoes, pineapples, grapefruits, pears), spicy yeast, grassy, strong floral honey sweetness, some booziness coming through, basil and coriander herbalness, salty, quite perfumed, piney hops, slight oakiness...

Taste is pretty similar to the aroma... slighty tropical spicy fruits, vanilla notes, spicy yeast, candy sugar, floral honey sweetness, some faint soapy notes, light nuttiness, vegetal traces, grassy hops, citrus, some of the coriander coming through, no real hint of the alcohol...

M&D - Smooth and rich with a little sharpness underneath... medium bodied... an extremely quaffable brew - dangerously so at 10%...

Overall - An outstanding strong pale ale... one of the best Belgian brews i've had for quite a while...

From notes. Pours hazy golden with vigorous activity and fluffy white head that stays a long time. Patchy lacing lasts for the duration.

Yeasty banana, moderate boozy esters, vaguely sweet, grainy, with light citrus hops.

Mild hop bitterness and mild citrusy hops balnace a big malty sweet base. Lightly spicy and wicked smooth. Booze is very well masked.

Modest warming, rich full body, medium viscosity and a clean finish.

What the hell style is this anyway? I first read "blonde Christmas Ale" somewhere. Hmmm, a 10% blonde ale. Called a Belgian Strong Pale here, and an Abbey Tripel on ratebeer. I guess it really doesn't matter, it's good! Super smooth, mellow, balanced and complex. A treat.

Golden bronze colored ale, with a beautiful head of white creamy foam. Flavor is elegant and well structured, loaded with depth and nuance. Very sweet, well layered and complex, with well concentrated flavors from start to finish. Notes of peach and pear. Elegant mouth fell. Purely Belgian in every way. Wow, wow, wow. STUNNING.

Another gem of a bottle I picked up on my last trip to Bruisin Ales. I grabbed a mixed sixer of basically all these brews, and a mighty pricey six pack it was! This was served as a well deserved nightcap last night. Served chilled, but closing in on room temperature and poured into an oversized wine glass, this one was consumed on 11/10/2008.

The Pour as very nice, a rich, light amber color with an enormous amount of haze and cloudiness to it just dropped into the bottle. Good amount of carbonation setup on this one as well. A large head of maybe three inches setup on top and took what seemed like forever for it to settle down, but once it did, it clung to every last bit of lace down the side of the glass.

The aroma was nothing like what I expected when I looked at the bottle. A nice, slightly sour, hoppy Belgian ale. Some spices detected as it warmed, maybe nutmeg or some pepper like spice, but mostly loaded with a sour, citrus blend here. Very nice and very well defined, sharp aroma. The flavor was more of the same, very rich here. A nice wave of strong citrus rolls across the tongue, this is the first thing you notice, biting, with a sharp cutoff, you need to take a second to realize where it is going. This mellows, comes back to a nice buttery like middle, similar to a big IPA, but fleeting as it meshes into that pepper like, nutmeg flavor I picked up on before. Interesting play here on the palate, and again not at all what I was expecting. Smooth, creamy feel on this one had the alcohol more then well hidden, it was a sipper for sure, but it did not come across anywhere near that strongly.

Overall a very solid, and very different take on the holiday Belgian ale. I really enjoyed this one as I felt the hops were rightfully placed and no where near overdone. Smooth and rich, I am going to have to go buy another one of these as quick as I can!

330ml bottle 10,0% Abv.
Served lightly chilled in an over sized wine glass.
2010 Vintage Batch C
Best Before: August 2015

I drank this beer on Christmas morning, much to the annoyance of my family who wanted to open their presents!

Appearance: Beautiful pour - lightly clouded bright apricot-orange body topped by a massive (typically Struise) off white head that displays annoyingly good retention and leaves great lace.

Smell: Mmmmm this smells delicious, wonderful combination of sweet fruit and spices. Cooked apples, candied orange peel, peaches, golden raisins, yellow plums, cloves, white pepper and nutmeg are all noted. There is a light honey sweetness and a hint of yeasty tartness. As the beer warms there is a hint of quality brandy.

Taste: The flavour follows on from the nose perfectly. Notes include: Sweet honey, candied orange peel, sweet peaches, yellow plums, nutmeg, cloves and pepper. The yeasty tartness is a little more pronounced than in the nose. Warming yields a lightly earthy/herbal hop note.
Perfect alcohol cover - though what else do you expect from Urbain and the guys at Struise?

Mouthfeel: Just shy of a full body (much fuller than I expected) with stunning, ultra smooth carbonation.

Overall: BSPA are not my favorite style, that said this Struise rendition is absolutely delicious! I hope to have it again next Christmas, or if I am lucky the oak aged version.

Another fine ale from De Struise. Pours a glowing cedar color with a creamy white head that settles to a thin cover. Nose is quite complex with ripe fruits, rich candy malts, peppery Belgian yeast, well balanced spices, honey and tart citrus. Taste is also quite rich. A delicous blend of sour fruits, sweet bready malts, spices, subtle hops and funky yeast. Medium to full body is well carbonated. Good stuff, very unique.

This is the 3rd bottle I've had in the last couple days. Code on the side is Dated B 6 08, I have no idea when this beer was bottled, local beer store has it in their close out area.
A - Pours a murky brown with a small head. When you finish there will be small floaters in your glass (drink 'em).
S - Big raisin/fig aroma.
T - Flavor is raisin in the best way. Sweet juicy raisins. And it has a warming boozy kick on the finish.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - Love this beer. Awesome.

Pours a pale golden color with considerable haze and lots of floaties. Bubbly white head dissipates to a cap and leaves minimal lace. Smells of nutmeg and cinnamon, very sweet and fruity, lots of brown sugar and dark fruits mixed with some Belgian yeast funk. Flavor is heavy on the yeasty funk side with a spicy fruitiness that finishes kind of dry. A bit of alcohol and fruit on the finish. Taste is both sweet and sour at different times. Really complex and hides the alcohol really well. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is ample, body is medium to thick. If this one tiny bottle wasn't 8 bucks I would drink this more often. Great brew.

I had stopped into the Struise store in Brugge on 28SEP11 and had the pleasure of trying a couple of samples of this offering (thanks, Dave!). Upon returning on 30SEP, I had to snag a bottle of this for consumption back home. Now 1 month-plus and €4.60 later, it's time to dive into this bottle, labeled TSJ No. 11. Here we go...

I poured most of the bottle into a DT tulip, save for the yeasties at the bottom. This one has a slight cloudiness to it, and the color is a deep copper. A few streams of carbo meander slowly topside, where a thin, fine layer of light tan bubbles rests. Lacing was a bit sparse, though, with a few trailers trying to cling. The aroma is rich and inviting, with dark fruit and spices filling the air. The body is a smidge better than medium, and Tsjeeses is fairly smooth on the tongue, even with a bit of carbo-induced airiness.

The flavor has some caramel maltiness and honeyish sweetness, plus a distinct spicy character. A little cinnamon is in there, along with notes of candied fruit, akin to a rum-soaked Christmas cake. The finish is very dry, with some lingering bitterness. Still, an extremely flavorful, satisfying bier (though a touch pricey). Would love to have a few more of these for when the weather gets real cold around here. Prosit!!

Bottle into chalice.

Pours a cloudy orange-gold, lighter towards the top, with loads of floaties, and a creamy bone-white cap that leaves substantial lacing. The floaties were disconcerting, but the beer otherwise looks fantastic.

Nose is apricot and tropical fruit mixed with a rich, lightly doughy yeast note, spicy alcohol, bit of candy sugar shining through. Delicious.

Taste is yeasty, bittersweet, rich tropical fruit and apricot, sweet candy sugar and some spicy alcohol. Honey, and maybe nutmeg? Dry at some points, deliciously rich in others. Finish is yeasty, a bit bittersweet, bit of alcohol on the exhale.

Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, soft, fluffy carbonation.

Drinkability is fantastic. When I finished this, I was left wondering why I hadn't bought more than one. I actually realized I was drinking it so fast that if i didn't get to reviewing, I'd run out of beer before I finished.

An exemplary beer. Delicious.

330ml, BBE 12/2014. Cap removal instantly releases bottle-trapped hoppy aroma. Everything less volatile than that goes into Karmeliet glass. Pouring produces half an inch thick bubbly white head that collapses creating a soapy film atop of murky pale yellow-orange fluid. Aromas are mostly hops followed by citruses, yeast and refined cane sugar with a touch of honey. Yeasty flavor with soft sweet malt supported hops and citruses creating an illusion of grapefruit sensation. Lots of hops in here resulting in long lingering bitterish aftertaste. I couldn't put my finger at any particular spice - this brew is all about quest for bitter-sour balance where hoppy bitterness always prevails over citrusy sourness, but that might change with time as the hops will lose aroma, flavor and bitterness as they age. The medium bodied beer is soft on the palate as its carbonation is bridled by viscous fluid. Absence of visible yeasty particles that Reserva abounds with and pronounced hoppiness separate regular Tsjeeses from his barreled brother. Oh, I didn't mention alcohol. Was there any?

Thanks to Platinum Liquor

2010 Vintage

Pours a toffee but not that dark with great head and lacing.

Smell is classic English barleywine at first. Then some rauchmalt comes in. Then some of that earthy Struise character. Just like a really good version of an English barleywine. Perhaps some English hops and booze in there too. Thick and malty.

Taste has more of that vaguely rauchy bitterness. Has a lot of that earthy Struise character coming through. Sweetness when in the mouth but the aftertaste is dry and delicious. Think a sort of burnt blue cheese in the mouth.

Mouthfeel is good, gets a thin character where it needs it then expands to bring on the flavour. Decent carb on the high side for style (EBarleywine, not BSPA).

Overall this is a great beer. Pretty unique too, gets those lovely aged English Barleywine flavours with none of the cloying sweetness or booze, which while there does not detract from the beer. Then adds some of that funky cheesiness. Of course, pretty much everything De Struise makes is awesome so that should be expected.

Poured into my tulip glass and a tight creamy two finger head formed atop a deep copper/amber colored beer. Lots of active carbonation. Head did begin to fade fairly quickly and left patches of lacing on the glass.

Aroma was fantastic. Bright, fresh... lots of depth of light malts and also some nice yeasty tones. I was expecting some spice but didn't really detect any. Slight fruit aromas as well. I just kept smelling the beer over and over. Very nice....

Very interesting flavor. It tastes much darker than it looks. Does that make sense? And again, I don't detect too many spices even though the label indicated their presence. Lots of depth here. Deep dark fruits. Dark Plums and prunes. Layers of rich malts... A bit of the yeasty character is there, but it does not overwhelm. Almost a smokey nature or a bit of tobacco. A hint of a metallic note right at the end. Slight Phenolic flavors.

Bold body and thick rich mouth feel. A bit slick... a honey feel to it in your mouth.. probably should have mentioned honey in the flavor as well

Really one to savor and enjoy. Wow, I'll be back for more next holiday season.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into an over-sized wine glass. Moderate pour yields a minimal skim of a head that collects around the edges of the glass. Impressive lace, color is a dark clouded orange amber with a massive amounts of suspended sediment.

Nose- Very wine like. Sour grape elements, alcohol is apparent. Slight sweetness to the nose, specifically apricots.

Palate- Dried apricots, some dates, slightly sweet, candi sugar. Mild sour grapes and granny smith apples slightly tart. Floral characteristics. Not getting much hops, contrary to the label. Alcohol is apparent but complementary. Finish is long and dry.

Mouthfeel- Dense, mildly carbonated, slightly syrupy.

Drinkability- Great, however alcohol will sneak up on you, and good god was this pricey.

2011 vintage

A - Pours a clear, bright copper with three fingers of firm off-white head. This very slowly falls to a rocky cap. Half a dozen small streamers are visible. Good start.

S - Fruity esters, plasticky phenols, clove, orange peel, coriander, light whiff of banana, some floral notes, a slight vinous presence in the background. Nice balance.

T - The start is candied orange along with a refined citric edge. Fruity esters transition into caramel flavours which round out and mellow the middle of the beer. This moves into a vinous note and a soft spike of spicy phenols. A perfumed floral character lingers in the aftertaste along with light hop bitterness. The alcohol is barely perceptible. As with the aroma, great balance.

M - Medium body with delicate, persistent carbonation that allows some creaminess to come through, before finally dispersing it towards the finish. A common theme I've found with De Struise is the consistently excellent mouthfeel.

D - Yet another fine beer from this brewery. Looks good, the smells and taste are well balanced, integrated and transition sublimely, with the mouthfeel perfectly offsetting it all. What more can you ask for?

I bought this beer straight of the Deca brewery.

A - A nice dark amber colored hazy beer beer with a decent head that is just a bit off white. No carbonation visible. The beer in total looks very appealing. Although the head is slowly retracting until only a thin pitiful layer remains.

S - Strong smell of Belgian yeast and alcohol. Caramel, vigs, raisins, some citrus and chocolate are also present. The smell is also a bit sweet-like with a hit of toffee.

T - A nice spicy beer with lots of cinnamon and yeast. Sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar, some citrus, warming alcohol and god knows what else is in this beer. A lovely mix thats for sure.

M - Medium-thick body with a good amount of carbonation.

O - This a good stuff. It s a complex thirst quencher that you can also enjoy after a good meal, in the morning, just out of bed, in the evening, at work etc. I just can't wait to try the reserva version.

Lot B909- not sure what vintage but I just recently saw it in the store so I am assuming 2011

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow/orange with 1/2 a finger of white head

Strong herbal, phenolic smell from the Belgian yeast- a lot of bubble gum, banana, clove, orange peel, rum soaked raisins, Belgian candy sugar, a little caramel and vanilla- very nice.

Taste starts of with banana and bubble gum- followed by clove, orange peel, rum soaked raisins, and caramel/vanilla. Buttery and bready as the beer warms up. Herbal as well. The finish has a little bitterness from the noble hops and a slight taste of alcohol but, very well integrated into the flavor. Very nicely balanced with the dry finish.

Mouthfeel is pretty light for 10% abv. Low carbonation as well. Pretty nice.

I am usually not a fan of this style but, this beer is excellent. Very complex and balanced-so many different flavors going on but all meld together nicely. Usually the Belgian yeast just completely overwhelms everything else- not here though. The 10% abv is also very well hidden- another great beer from a great brewery.
