COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Barley malt, hops, cane sugar, yeast and spices.
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.

Bottle. Brown with a small head. Unusual spiciness that lingers for some time. I expected something more powerful considering its strength but it was still very pleasant to drink.

Bottle, 11.2 oz. Wow this was nice. Bottle conditioning gives a wonderful mouth pop. Colour is gorgeous. Taste is sparky at first but mellows quickly. A pleasure from start to finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambrée, pas vraiment le gout typique d’une triple belge. Complexe, fruité, caramel.
