Strong blond winterbeer with fluffy white head which has been lagered for 8 months on different stonefruits. Tsjeeses was born out of a 5 year brew experience regarding x-mas beer without being capable of finding a suitable name up to now. With the name came a face, a caricature actually, that was drawn on the day Urbain, our brew master and master brewer, drank too many Tsjeeses’s. Every time he drinks one, he says "Tsjeeses, what a beer". Therefore the name is more an expression of stupefaction than a curse. We have had already many discussions around the pronounciation of "Tsjeeses". Very close would be that you say "cheeses" or cheese in plural.

Drank with Rik 21-3-2016 at my place. Good beer. Had the barrel aged ones before but the original is impressive as well. Very rich and good taste, not plain sweet but really rich, with lots of complexity.

Color rame scuro. Malto, frutti di bosco, frutta secca, prugne. Ottima birra anche se mi aspettavo maggiore complessità.

330ml bottle opens with a big gush, pours murky red brown with a finger of fizzy head. Believe this bottle is a couple years old. Nose is sweet dark fruit, bready caramel, grape, some citrus, plum, maple. Taste is creamy, soft, dark bready fruit, light spice, caramel. Finishes semi sweet, earthy bread, pear, crust, plum, grape, light raisin. Enjoyable.

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2016
330ml bottle (2015 vintage). Clear amber color. Tiny size, white head, stays as a ring. Perfume, malty, alcohol, caramel, sweet in aroma. Sweetish malts, alcohol, yeasty in taste. Sweet malts, caramel, bit yeasty in aftertaste. Yeast makes it fuller. But dustier as well. Bit papery. Drinkable brew.

Bunam (4) - BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2016 does not count
Bière subtile, très jolie robe ambrée, bonne tenue en bouche, longueur en bouche assez courte, arôme pas assez prononcé pour ce type de bière. Petite déception car je m’attendais à mieux.
