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.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottle from ygtbsm94. Shared with WeeHeavySD. Big 2 finger white head that fades at a medium rate to a 2mm small bubble film. Cloudy yellow amber color. Belgian triple aroma and taste.. A bit of corriander, orange peel. Slighty sweet. Very easy to drink. Medium to heavy body. Tried Bell’s 8000 soon after this, and this was a strong winner. Delicious.

TheEpeeist (3186) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2007
33 cl bottle. Misty burnished orange with a creamy white head. Lacy swirls. Way over-ripe peaches and apricots. Odd buttery sweet gruyere. Slick, medium body with mild carb that lightly tingles the tongue. Like the Pannepot incredibly complex in taste. Sweet and sour white nectarine and golden raisin. Honey drying with sticky spices. A light winter brew with a twist. Very cool.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
Murky golden-orange in colour, lingering medium sized white coloured head, some lacing. The aroma was quite yeasty, lots of citrus, apples, light perfume, spice. The flavour was of candied sugar, some yeast, lots of apples, some orange citrus, light spice. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation. Finishes long, sugary sweet, very light alcohol. Incredible stuff, so smooth, great sweetness, an excellent Christmas beer.

33cl Bottle at KBF Poperinge. Pours a slight hazy golden orange blond beer with creamy big thick white head on top. Aroma is very fruity with lots of malts, bread, some nuts and hints of mint. The taste is again very malty with hints of biscuit, bread nuts and lots of fruitiness. Medium bodied, alcohol well hidden and very well balanced. The more you get to the finish, the more the alcohol bites but not overwhelming. Slight hoppy aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours an orange murky colour. Nice riped fruitiness and mild spiciness in the aroma with toasted malt, bit of yeast, citrus and rather tart. Good lacing. The flavour is sweet and spiced with softly toasted malt, citrus, ripe fruits and with a nice tartness. Bit spiced sweet tart toasty finish. Very tasty brew indeed.
