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.

One of the best tasting heads I’ve ever tried. Brown and frothy, this is an excellent beer. Far from being too sweet like so many Belgian’s this has a great dark flavor that is really top notch. And reasonably priced to boot. Will definitely buy more of this.

psilosophy (480) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée, léger trouble, mousse assez abondante, conserve un joli col duveteux. Superbe richesse aromatique, on a du fruit, des fruits secs, des épices, du caramel, du rhum, un alcool vraiment bien masqué. Texture extrèmement moelleuse en bouche : c’est du velours! Superbe bière! Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

I’m still looking for a normal beer from Struise: all I know are superb. This one reminds me of my favorite beer, Pannepot. It’s notes to raisins, nuts, caramel, wine...even its looking. Strong, overwhelming, delicious...once again, an impressive, huge, superlative beer. God (and tsjeeses) save Struise.

kevinator (847) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Interesting beer. Aroma of bready malts like a Dubbel with some fruitiness. Copper-orange color with a mild head but good carbonation. Good weighty palate as most of the beers from this brewery that I’ve been lucky enough to try. More bread-like flavors with some peach essence and spices. Well rounded and as always, impressive.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Home snifter. Pours a cloudy medium brown, slightly oily, with a one finger white head. Aroma of cane sugars, caramel toffee, cookie, dark fruits, brown sugar. The taste is just as complex as the aroma with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruits, booze, and some spices. Medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is slight booze with the sweet malts and spices.

Torrefacto (501) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2014
Barril en el animal. Aromas de pan fresco y levaduras y afrutados. Color caramelo con espuma fresca. En boca entra dulce y ligeramente tostada para acabar con un amargor equilibrado que se combina con una acidez ligera y afrutada. Muy rica.
