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.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices and oranges. The flavor is sweet mlaty with strong notes of spices as well as some nice acidity, and alcohol making the body thick, leading to a dry spicy finish.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours very cloudy amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity nose with a touch of yeast. Medium body with a very smooth mouthfeel. Quite fruity, some overripe accents, lightly vinous - sherry-like - with an underlying tartness. The bitterness is quite discreet. Elegant, but not really what I would expect from a Christmas beer. 051207

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.

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, firm head. Fruity nose with herbal spices - cinnamon and ginger spring to my mind. Vinous with vital, rounded mouthfeel. Fiery alcohol lies undeneath and some pleasant lactic acidity adds freshness and complexity. Full bodied. So wonderfully complex - every sip brings out a new aspect. There’s orange and butter, berries and, muscat wines and everything else I want. I tried to be a sceptic, but failed hopelessly. Oh, what a beer!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 2009-02-07, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, as Jesus, 6-2-7-3-13=31
Poorly served, with no head in a half pint glass; cloudy light amber color. Simple aroma; quite strong body; sweet malt flavor, with a touch of sweet liquorice and Belgian yeast; warming alcohol. Maybe too strong, a bit boozy, and not enough exciting.

2007-08-05, bottle, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Hazy copper color; big frothy head; high carbonation. Light aroma, with some caramel, fudge, very light sweet spices. Good body structure, with quite a lot of sweetness, but the flavor reminds me apricot jam, over all; there is also a light sourness. The bitterness is low; at the end there is also some alcohol perception. It actually tastes as if it’s a wrong bottle.
