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.

pilsnerrogge (2553) - Finspång, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottled:
Pours a muddy brown colour with a thick head, Acidic aroma with notes of lemons, dates and brown sugar. The flavour is pretty much like the aroma. Long, dry finish.

Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy dark copper with a typical Belgian massive fluffy white head. Good lacing. Nose is bananas, cloves, and Belgian yeast. Taste is caramel, malt, and a hint of spices.

J_man (737) - Tustin, California, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Cloudy medium amber with particles and a fluffy dirty white head. Sweet malt aroma with some kind of spices in the background. That sweet malt follows through in the taste along with a good Belgian yeasty flavor. There are definitely spices in the brew, but they aren’t overwhelming or very distinct. However they are very good! The 10% ABV is practically hidden and this is very easy to drink. Good thing it’s a small bottle. This is a very good and tasty Christmas beer. The description listed here which doesn’t match the story on the bottle I have is quite entertaining.

HenriqueBraga (93) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 20, 2015
Âmbar escura, turva, boa espuma, embora não muito permanente por conta do álcool. Aroma de laranja, frutas secas, álcool, cereja, condimentos, cravo. Na boca é aquecedora. Corpo médio-alto. Final doce, alcoólico.

If you love beer with evolving taste, this one is for you. Aromas drive you to the sour kind of beer, first taste is of the stout genre, and it finishes with a small fruity taste (cherry maybe). And don’t forget the taste of alcohol, presents all the way down.

Ulysse (199) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
Drinking this beer is an experience. Tricky to describe cause it’s made of various components. Aroma tending to a sour brown. Thin white layer over the surface. First in the mouth leads you to a stout feel. Followed by an alcoholic skirmish with spices. Right before the end you rest upon a fruity bed. Aftertaste slightly sticky and alcoholic.

changement très rapide du gout. Commence à la limite du porter, puis arrière goût bien épicé accentué par l’alcool. Très bonne bière peut-être un peu Trop alcoolisé.

Moravius (641) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2014
Flasche (Jahrgang 2013; 33 cl) von Bierzwerg.de. - Orangebraun, trüb, wenig beigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase milde aber sehr angenehme frisch-zitrusfruchtige, würzige Hopfennoten: Orangenschale, etwas Tabak, ein wenig Leder. - Im Antrunk kräftiges Karamelmalz, etwas herbe Frucht, Weihnachtsgewürze, unterlegt mit ein wenig Orangenschale und fruchtiger Herbe. Zu offensichtliche Kandiszuckersüße. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Im Abgang etwas krautige, aber unschön dumpfe Herbe und allzu starker Alkohol, beinahe schnapsig, wie ein billiger Kräuterlikör. - Vielversprechende Nase, knapp überdurchschnittlicher Antrunk, eher schwacher Abgang - so könnte man es zusammenfassen. Von Struise hatte ich mehr erwartet.

HIGHB4LL (713) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2014
11.2 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger tan head, copper color, cloudy, good lacing. Aroma: port, fruity, caramel, molasses. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, spice, oily texture, light boozy thinness. Taste: sweet caramel into port sweet fruit, very subtle spice notes that remain sweet. Overall, only complaint is that I would like a little more backbone, either in booze or tastes, but very good very pleasant, and a good beer in smaller amounts.

leghorn99 (50) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 27, 2014
Bello il colore, di un arancio torbido ed intrigante, con abbondante residuo in sospensione. La schiuma è molto abbondante, fine, cremosa e molto persistente. Un po’ scarna la parte aromatica, ma con evidenti note fruttate, malto e buona presenza di luppolo. In bocca è molto intensa, con sapori di frutta candita, pesca dolce, miele, scorza d’arancia e una leggera amarezza. La sensazione al palato è robusta corpo pieno; carbonazione media, alcool che seppur presente rimane ben nascosto. Finale lungo e luppolato.

Bue à la pression chez De Struise. Grosse attaque amande/pruneau. Belle texture en bouche.
