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, thanks SinH4. Cloudy amber with a solid white head. Candied fruit, caramel, herbal, toast. Build up sweetness, turns a bit dusty bitter, roasty. Medium body with pearly carbonation. Sticky stuff.

teddybeer (4467) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2018
33cl bottle. BBD: 16-11-2016. Batch: 2722090610
Brown color with a minimal light beige head with short retention. Aroma has notes of candy sugar, toasted malts, ripe fruit and molasses. Flavro is sweet, no cloying, good maltiness, caramelish and molasses notes. Warm final, no alcohol presence that is hidded by caramelish notes. One excelent beer brewed by Struise...

33cl @ bottle. Invecchiata un paio di anni in cantina. Niente da dire, ottima birra invernale per De Struise che difficilmente delude. Non la loro birra migliore, ma rimane una gran birra.

Franckg (1986) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Bouteille millésime 2015 nommée sous X-Mas Ale et bue après plus de 2 ans. Robe rouge-orangée légèrement trouble et surmontée d'un léger col de mousse blanchâtre et dense. Arômes de petits fruits séchés, malt fruité qui semble se faire vieux, caramel à l'orange, sucre d'orge en perte de vitesse, quelques épices à biscuit. En bouche, saveurs de fruits foncés confits, figues, malt caramélisé, vanille. C'est intéressant jusqu'à ce qu'un arrière-goût vieillot s'installe. Ça goûte les vieux fruits, les herbes brunies, le malt âcre. La finale en est presque désagréable alors que ces saveurs s'imposent. Texture onctueuse et corps moyen. Peut-être un manque de fraîcheur, même si la date de péremption est encore loin (2020).

Aged, but only decent, lambic taste, a little bit sour and bitter. Something bad in the taste, or aftertaste actually. Drunk it version 2012 in 2017 december, closed to expire date.

DonGregorio (663) - POLAND - DEC 26, 2017
2015 bottle. Light gushing after opening. Pours dark amber with quite large tan head. Aroma of caramel, spices, orange, apricot, toffee, a hint of pear. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter, of caramel, spices, ginger, orange, apricot, peach, brown sugar, with notes of raisins, herbs. Spices and fruits in the finish. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Very complex and tasty Christmas beer.

Luneylane (295) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 26, 2017
A bottle from l'Apero. Aroma: malt, soya sauce. Appearance: murky milk chocolate, tan lacing. Palate: medium bodied and slick, soft carbonation, very boozy. Taste: medium bitter, some vanilla, lacks finesse.

nathanvc (921) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Christmas beer evening; shared with Anke!
Labeled '2015'. Pours hazy dark orange with a small, off-white head. The complex aroma contains orange & mandarin, peach or plum, some vanilla, sugar, hops & herbs. It tastes medium fruity sweet and light to medium hoppy bitter; ending dry, spicy and even very light sour with lingering fruity touches. Of course, some pleasant, warming alcohol. Full body, slick/oily texture, soft carbonation. Great stuff, but being a heathen, I can't say that I would always prefer this to a more regular winter beer.

thejackpacker (810) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle from supermarket. A powerful beer to knock your socks off before Christmas lunch. A powerful ale that feels like a barley wine... Sweet and malty.
