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.

Color is amber/bronze and a bit cloudy. Huge white head with an amber accent. Smells like a sour beer, only a bit sweeter. A combination of different tastes, such as caramel, candied fruit and spices, gives for an incredible beer. Delicious.

Köpt på monks struise bar, Stockholm. Flaska från 2012. Ganska söt och tung öl som passar att sippa på. Rätt så ljus färg. Nästan lika god som pannepot.

Belgian blonde with alot of spices. When it’s cold it doesn’t work that well. the bitterness doesn’t work together with the spices and sweetness - but when the beer gets a bit air and gets warmer everything feels better in place, although i would probably like these spices better in a darker ale, like a Quad or dubbel.

Alpha10 (394) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
2015/03/17 - Pours a hazy, rusty-orange colour with a thin, fizzy, off white head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Aroma is apples, plums, sweet caramel malt, vanilla, a hint of musk and woody notes. Taste follows nose; apples, plums, spices, sweet caramel and oak with a hint of booze. Mouthfeel is medium with biting carbonation and a sweet, dry, warming finish. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

danielecamo (656) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore ramato scuro, molto velata. Aromi di spezie, frutta secca, frutta sotto spirito, zenzero. Purtroppo agli aromi non corrisponde l’assagio rovinato dalla presente di molto lievito in sospensione causa autolisi.
