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.

Mini-gusher upon opening; just bubbled out the top a little bit. Great complex aroma of green apple skin and caramel sprinkled with spices. Super flavor, you get all of the herbal, spicy notes of the aroma and then some. Superb beer.

TURDFERGUSON (4020) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle shared by emacgee. Thanks Ethan! Pours golden with a small white lace that lasts. Nose is sweet and spicey with some citrus and a funky belgian yeast (similar to De Dolle as durhambeer points out). Flavor is sweet and fruity, some alcohol is present and the finish is pretty dry. Complex and unique.

(33cl bottle) Large off-white head atop yeast-flecked amber body, lovely lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, ginger, some flowery, orange, light alcohol, cream. Taste is sweet, orange, alcohol, yeast, ginger. Fairly dry finish. Medium-full body.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle shared by emacgee. Golden orange pour with grayish tint. Lots of chunklets in the body. Scuppernong and wild yeast on the nose. Reminded me of some De Dolle wackiness. Musty and boozy. Some brown sugar... more like honey, I think? Orange peel. This is a big, big tripel.

That1Guy (2052) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. Kinda fruity aroma, apples, apricots. Not overwhelming though. Flavor is about the same. Rated this one low, but tripels have never been my thing.

Pours a wonderfully hazy bronze-ish color with the lovely "bottle conditioned" appearance I come to expect in good beers. Smells like recently rotted fruit. Strange how that’s actually appealing in a beer. Taste includes some of that fruit, with the spices making an appearance as well. Absoutely great. I’m starting to really like de struise. If it weren’t for the alcohol, which is amazingly well hidden, I’d like to drink a few of these in succession. Very impressive, I would say.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2009
33cl bottle from Parti-Pak Liquors (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a hazy caramel brown color with clearly visible floating particulates. One finger off-white head settles slowly and laces the glass. Aroma is malty and sweet with notes of flowers, caramel, floral hops, honey, molasses, wood, spice. Flavor is sweet and malty with sweet and spice notes, caramel, honey, toffee, floral hops, yeast, bread , and candy sugar. Generally medium body with a sweet and malty finish.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle from West Lakeview. Pours an attractive golden color, though I must have stirred up the yeast cuz there’s tons of floaties. Nice foam head. Nose is super yeasty and bready, pleasant floral hoppy notes and then some very nice fruitiness. Really big mouthfeel, very spicy and the floral/fruity notes extend to the taste as well. Some bitter finish from the hops, tons of alcohol. Not my favorite tripel, but definitely worth trying. Will have to lay one of these down as well... Nice

LilBeerDoctor (3516) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a small orange head. Aroma of apricot, fig, melon, watermelon, but especially pear. Flavor is the same, quite sweet with lots of fruits and spices too. An interesting and tasty tripel. 7/4/8/4/15 (3.8/5)

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JAN 10, 2009
Hazy golden look with a foamy white head leaving fine lazings. Sweet fruity aroma with notes of oranges, peach yeast and herbs. Full bodied and complex flavor. Sweet oranges, bitter berries and herbs with a heavy underlying alchohol thats smoothly felt. Great tripel.
