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.

Foggy, honey coloured with a big creamy foam. Aroma is malty and very bisquit like with fresh fruity hints. The spicey accents are working well with the fruity oranges and peaches. The taste is soft and mild in the mouth. In the biginning, there is at first a round maltyness with hints of honey. Than the fruity and spiceyness is covering the mild sweetness of the taste. In the finale there is a original bitterness of herbs and undifinable hops. Alcohol works well with the dominating fruity carracter. From a 33cl bottle.

On tap at Kulminator during LCRBM 2006. Huge thanks to Carlo for this. Also thanks to everyone who drank up the Liefmans Kriek to free up the tap (ooh that was a chore!). Cloudy copper colour with thick beige head. Spice and yeast aroma. Spicey lemon and raisin/sultana in mouth. Dry finish. Gorgeous. Love the tripel type fruit.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2006
On tap at the Struise Farm in Lo. Served in a frozen goblet by Carlo. The beer was foggy and intens yellow to orange. The foam was White and verry fluffy like dubble cream. The aroma is hot, it hat hints of Confit de fruit exotique, pepper, Ginger? and other spices. The taste is indeed powerfull and a bit alcoholic (Eau-de vie) Poire and mirabelle. The feeling in the mouth is like balm. Cake, Fruits Exotiques and spices. Great when served ice-cold, still exellend when it warms up, ut verry verry dangerous.

maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2006
Draught - Kulminator - Antwerpen - A hazy orangey coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is yeasty with peppery hops and a touch of black pepper also. The taste is high alchol with peppery spicy notes. Yeasty also. Seemed a little young but shows great potential for aging.

thebeertourist (4814) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2006
On draught at Kulminator. Deep orange with a big, lacing offwhite head. Fruity and somewhat bitter-spicy nose. Flavours are more complex, still sweet, notes of orange peel, quite fruity, yet with a dry finish. Full-bodied. Tasted very young- thus likely to improve as it matures.

Phil (178) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2006
Draft at Kulminator - LCRBM2 - Spicey, Hazy Yellow, Lacy, Foamy. The spice notes come through on the nose and in the mouth. GINGER! Oh, yes. Xmas? Not sure. More Autumnal?
