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.

Thanks Papsoe. This was a good beer to drink in Long Friday. Hazy orange color, small white head. Spicey fruity aroma, at least ginger and clove are there plus some banana. Spicey, a bit hard mouthfeel. Not alcoholic at all. Some sugars over there are making this beer a bit like a Dutch ale. Solid beer, although not outstanding like Struise’s some other brews.

ChrisFest Fascinating. Caramel. Fruit. All over the place. A whirpool of related flavours that meld together into a sweet fruit punch with a tickle of marmalade. Drinkable and interesting. A bit carbonated - burps up a Tango. Damn fine.

Bootle. Cloudy golden aappearance with a rich white head. Euch and full aroma of Seville, oranges, sweet red apples, honey and apricts with some subtle dryish sensations of mild coriander and pepper. The mouthfeel is smooth and soothing. Long but mild and well-balanced finish of oranges and vanilla.

Bottle; Nose of light clovey spices, caramel and a little tartness; Slightly hazy copper with a small yellowish head; flavor is caramel, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg spices, and a light acetic acisd finish; Not sour enough to be a flemish sour, but not a great tripel.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Bottle, 10% at Kulminator, Antwerpen. Stable white head. Sweet and fruity, ripe fruit, aroma. Sweet, spicy and yeasty flavour. The flavour is very vinous with a warming alcohol note. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Yeasty aftertaste. 7 4 7 4 16

2008 version at LCRBM08. 8 3 8 4 19

Bottle, 10.0%. I do not know what year it is from, but it states BB 2013. Gusher! Good vanilla aroma, rather boozy, but nice. Murky dark amber colour, seems almost clear but has a massive amount of yeast chunks whirled up by the gushing. The flavour is sweetish with some vanilla, cigarbox and a little dried fruit. Good alcohol level to balance. Great mouthfeel in spite of the seemingly high carbonation. 7 2 8 4 18

Hazy yellow of color with a white head. An aroma with notes of species and oranges. The flavor is species and oranges, with notes of caramel.
