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.

330. Thanks, Maria! Big spice and fruit nose. Pours cloudy peachy yellow and gold. Thick fluffy/bubbly white head. Strong hints of spice appear everywhere, starting with the nose. Tangy puckery white fruit (maybe some green apple too) on the nose; these flavors also persist to the mid-palate. The attack is certainly flavorful enough to call it aggressive; this is no small beer. The mid-palate accelerates on a wave of white pepper and coriander. Thick bubbly body and sharp dry finish. I appear to be the lone great supporter of this one tonight, but I really do like it. The tang has the perfect context around it, and it’s a soulful, lovingly made beer. Wish I could drink it all the time.

Bottle. Amber with a compact white head, unclear. Fruity aroma (dominated by oranges and apricot) with notes of cloves, alcohol, yoghurt and metal. Fullbodied with a rather low carbonation compared to other belgians. Sweet but has a bitter finish. It’s very spiced, but better balanced than most other spiced brews.

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Poured a reddish gold color with a medium sized, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus fruits, vanilla, lemon, toffee, with herbs, alcohol and a bit of ginger. Taste of yeast, lemongrass, citrus fruits, sweet toffee malts, vanilla, and a light tartness... moderate alcohol, and a bit of anise in the finish.

from belgianshop.com - cloudy dark orange colour; little creamy white head; aroma of peach, tangerines and amaretto; very sweet and acidic/sour; solid malt body; the finish is fairly tart, acidic and moderately dry; more fruity notes and a warming alcohol touch - balanced and wonderfully brewed

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2007
This pours a cloudy amber/orange with a thick, creamy white head. Not much lacing. It’s got a soft floral bouquet over scents of peaches and nectarines. The malt tastes honey sweet, somewhat bready, with juicy stone fruits and some tart oranges. A peach pit kind of bitterness develops midway that lasts into the dry finish. Nicely done.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle thanks to Papsoe: Pours a cloudy golden bronze with a nicely-lacing thin wispy white head. Aroma of sweet bready pale Belgian malt with a hint of yeast. Body starts fairly full and malty sweet with a bready texture and fine carbonation along with a touch of citrus tartness. A nicely balanced and enjoyable brew.
