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.

Cloudy, golden-orange color with a white head. Aroma of caramel, spice and citrus. Inviting and warm flavor of spice, caramel, and honey. A perfect beer for a cold wintery night.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold/orange, with a small, white head. Aroma is spices, fruit, honey, and yeast. Flavor is honey, fruit, spices, and a little alcohol. Another Struise success.

Ratman197 (9940) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle poured a hazy orange with fishys and a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of pear, cinnamon, apple, orange zest and a hint of clove. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a lightly warming finish. Flavors of pear, apple, cinnamon, carmel and a hint of honey with a smooth lightly warming lingering spiced finish.

sebletitje (6743) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2008
Another impressive offering by tpd975. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is very sweet - honey , sugary - with some fruity hops, and yeasty. Taste is hoppy with the nice Belgian yeast notes. Fruity notes - apricot. Alcohol is present and offers a warming mouthfeel. A good triple and something that wont come around too often.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
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

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tpd975. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a one finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, caramel, citrus, bread dough, and spices. Taste is the same as aroma but more prominent. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours foggy golden orange with a finger thick cream colored head that diminishes to a layer of foam across the top. Tons of sediment. Nose is sweet citrus and yeast. The flavor is a tangy citrus and sweet fruits finished by a subtle hop profile. Quite coating on the palate.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle. Minor gusher. Sweet, spicy and slightly tart aroma with a touch of metal. Grassy and herbal hop notes. A bit fruity with some bread crust as well. Some caramelly sweetness. Lots of fruity yeast esters as the beer warms. Nice. Pours a hazy, dark copper with a pillowy white head. Even a very careful pour yielded a bunch of suspended particulate. Flavor is delicate, spicy, herbal with some sugary sweetness. The malt and yeast really show their cards against the hops. Doughy and slightly dry, crackery malt. Loads of yeast phenolics: bananas and a touch of rubber. Dried, sugar coated citrus fruit. Delicate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Lasting sweeter malt and yeasty finish. Definitely one of the better tripels Ive had.

JAXSON (528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 Bottle. The label is really stupid. Pours a medium to dark amber with billions of suspended particles and a small, soapy head. Fantastic aroma, light fruits, baked bread, and some cognac. So much like Stille Nacht at this point in every way, though a shade darker. Flavor is rich and elegant. Buttery rum cookies, peaches, kind of like a peach cobbler, and a slightly bitter finish. Kind of on the boozy side, but thats ok. Really good. The finish could be smoother, and I would like a little more complexity in the flavor, but awesome. Superb mouthfeel, just so silky and rich. Delicious and luxurious.
