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.

Hazy golden pour with small white head. Aroma holds lots of sweet malt, bread, spice- light but delicious. Flavor is superb; light brown sugar, bread, sweet molasses, spices- incredibly tasty. Mouthfeel is wondrous, has a nice tinge of alcohol, and a bit of dryness on the finish. Superb abbey tripel, maybe the best I’ve had to date.

Bottle started to foam over, so I had to pour fairly quickly and ended up with a lot of floaters. Aroma is very bready. Flavor is yeast, bread, a subtle cinnamon and other spices. This drinks very smooth and nicely. If not for all of the yeast floaters the palate would be quite nice.

33 cl bottle from Buffalohead. Clear gold with a bubbly, big, champagne like head that settles pretty fast. Lots of fruity aromas, peaches, apricots, etc. dominate the aroma, but some honey comes through as well. Smooth, medium body with a palate cleansing effervescence. Lightly sweet biscuity flavor and a gentle spicy bitterness that is quite refreshing.

Pours dark golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of honey, berries, lavender, sage, lemongrass, and white wine.Tastes of bubble gum, herbs, caramel, and perfume. Mouthfeel is full bodied with lively carbonation.

$9.99 @ City Food, marked Lot B/6/08. Pours a clear yellow orange with a buttload of tiny chunks suspended in the body and a two finger creamy off-white head, great retention. Fruity Belgian yeast up front with peach and cherry notes, some candi sugar as well. Light herbal hops in the background. The flavor continues to be pretty sweet and fruity with some alcohol showing up towards the finish, but not showing its 10% strength. There also is a peppery spice note. The finish is semi-dry with bitterness around a 2. Full smooth body with light carbonation. Nice beer.

Bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a thin head but nice lacing. Orange and cinnamon aromas, plum, caramel, cherry, grapes, and other spices. Flavor is sweeter and less spicy than the nose, but very balanced. Orange and plum dominate with an array of spices. Thick, creamy, and smooth palate makes it enjoyable to drink.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange top with a creamy head, some lacing, a bit of particulate. Nose of grapes, yeast, rich malty sweetness, apricots, whiffs of brandy, balanced spices, nothing standing out too much. Rich, creamy light mouthfeel. Sweet malts, yeast, more grapes and spices a lot more booze as it warms. I am quite impressed by this tripel.

Traded bottle for Christmas. Interesting tripel that had some strong tart and sour notes in the aroma and flavour. Still had nice citrus and spices accents too. Maybe not as dark, heavy or warming as expected for a Christmas beer but still nice to drink. 10ABV really not noticeable.

awesome label... Pours a hazy golden amber with a huuuugggee lingering creamy tan/yellow head... Aroma has a very Flintstone Vitamins quality to it, very different, subtlely fruity, and chalky... Flavor doesnt quite follow suit, taste is different, i wouldnt know how to classify this as anything other than a Belgian Specialty ale, different worth trying... Easy drinking for what 10%, no way...
