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.

Poured a hazy brown yellow color with a small white head. Yeasty spice aroma with some edible spice as well. Sweet aroma. Sour and yeasty spice flavor. Semi-dry finish that leaves the tartness alone at the end.

Bottled. Hazy deep goldenish orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is yeast, fruits, spices, vegetables and some other sweet stuff. Flavour is ginger, pepper, yeast caramel malts and some slight rubber. Hides the alcohol very well. Pleasant.

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.

April, 2007 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. [3.8]
Jan, 2015 330ml brown bottle, unfiltered. £5.25 (WTF!) from Bitter Virtue, Southampton. This is a lovely sweet, yeasty beer. Great fun, and I’m enjoying it. But I hadn’t read the price ticket correctly, and I think I thought this was £3.25 - a bit pricy for a small bottle, but possibly worth it for such a nice beer. But £5.25! Get away! The beer is nice, but not worth that! I’m a little pissed off now. I feel like I’ve been a bit ripped off. [3.4]

madsberg (10597) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2007
Bottled. Dark golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Yeast, fruits, sweetness, loads of spice and some alcoholnotes in the nose. Flavour is alcoholdense, has some sweetness, spice and light ripe fruits. A bit more bland than aroma. Medium to full bodied. Is fruity and light spiced in the end. Alcohol warming the lips witout beeing dominant.

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.
