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.

Light hops in the aroma, but the spice and apple dominated the nose. Appearance was burnt gold with a creamy head. Flavor include some honey, orange peel, pear and roasted nuts, perhaps almonds. Lively and bubbly palate. Pretty good on tap.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2009
Bottle at Delirium in Brussels. Pours a deep amber orange/brown color with a large white, airy head. Aroma is nutty spicy and slightly fruity. Taste is spicy fruit and nuts, sweet malty body with a complex yeast character. A good balance and a good overall palate.

Bottle shared by Hophead22. Pours cloudy and orange with a bunch of chunks and virtually no head. Aroma is medicinal and fruity, slightly boozy with a hint of dog. Flavor is mostly sweet under ripe fruits, pennies, and slightly herbal. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Ugly, but overall not bad.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2009
Pours a medium brown like a murky cider with a huge white head. Lots of sediment floating in my glass. Smell has lots of yeast and is kind of stale and earthy but yet sweet. Citrus and a little spice round it off.Taste is much stronger than the nose would make you to believe. A good alcohol taste and a slightly bitter hop end. It is sweet with yeast, honey, malt, and spices.A light body with medium carbonation.

Bottle: Cloudy brownish orange pour with a thin, creamy beige head. Strong aroma is rich with Belgian spices, namely cloves. Some corriander and orange peel too. Flavor is smooth with maltiness, dark fruits, orange peel, and cloves. Finishes a little dry with some yeast and faint florals. Very good.

Bottle that I picked up at Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, Belgium, March 09, consumed 16-04-09 Pours murky puddly orangey brown, actually more brown than orange. Fruit and spice dominate the nose which at times brings forth visions of being sat around a brazier with a steaming mulled wine. There is a real softness in the mouth with this beer, streaks of citrus mingle with the spices and a yeastiness is also apparent. Finally I note that the mouth is gradually being warmed by the 10% alcohol, yet this doesn’t detract from my enjoyment of this beer. A7 A3 F8 P3 Ov15 3.6
