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.

Bottle dated B-09-09, September of 09 I would assume. Cloudy amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of stone fruit, dark fruit, husky grain, light caramel, some cereal and lots of bready yeast. Tastes like a big sweet barleywine up front, lots of toffee, sweet caramel, butterscotch, spice, dark fruit, soon after some hazelnut, earth, hints of sweet nectarine and other stone fruit, sweet salted fruit and caramel finish. Heavy, chewy bodey, light but slightly sharp carbonation and slightly dry finish. Good stuff, it doesn’t seem much like a Saison, but being 3 years old I am not alarmed.

Lekker aroma van perzik, banaan, nectarine. Zwaar blond bier met hele lange zachte en warme afdronk. Fruitig met licht bittere nasmaak. Topbiertje van de struise brouwers.

NordicV (1430) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2015
Flaska med bäst före 2013. På Monks Wallingatan. Brun, dimmig öl med vitt skum. Doft av plommon, russin och andra torkade frukter, mörkt socker, karamell och kryddighet. Smaken är lika komplex och god.

Elle sera peut être un peu (trop) plate pour cause d’éruption à l’ouverture. Nez de cannelle, épices, malts biscuités, sucre roux de canne, douceur. En bouche pareil et équilibre. Corps solide où l’alcool, même à ce taux, sait se faire discret. Grosse complexité. Je l’apprécierais d’avantage un peu plus froide et moins "secouée".

martin00sr (1696) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
2013 bottle. Gusher... cloudy red amber with a lot of floating sediments. Dried fruity aroma, vinous notes and red sour strawberries. Flavour has sweet dark sugar, figs and alcohol. All in all very well balanced. Finish has fresh cut wood and more sweet fruityness. Very good.

olliejobbins (1445) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
330ml bottle (2013). Massive gusher when opened. The amount that did remain in the glass was quite a dark caramel brown - clear with frothy off white head. aroma is rather sweet. caramel, molasses and yeast. taste wasn’t what i was expecting. really really sweet. a little spice. lasting sweet finish. i love the barrel aged versions but this was only "ok".

Bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoetzuur en bitter hoppig, fruitig, aarbei, kersen, banaan. Erg goed. Smaak blijft lang hangen.

Grima (2202) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium! 2010 bottle! Pours copper colored with a fine white head. Aroma has fruits, spicy notes and rich malt notes. Taste of sweet spicy malts, dried fruits and some brown sugar. Finish is warming, very spicy with some christmas spices and dried fruits. Very delicious, even in early summer :-)
