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 Tsjeesess. 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.

Intense notes of caramel, dried fruits, dates and raisin, beautiful reddish with a good and quite persistant white head, medium/full body, medium carbonation, remember a fortified wine, dried fruits and caramel again, pleasant warming...a bit boring maybe but struise is always great.

LouisP (365) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Une bire rousse, ambre, sans grande effervescence ni carbonatation. Au nez, a me rappelle un peu une pilsner, avec des impressions assez florales et un nez galement un peu sucre. En bouche, cest assez surprenant, avec plusieurs saveurs distinctes. On dnote dabord une amertume qui surprend pour une bire belge, avec des saveurs sucres de caramel. En deuxime ton, une saveurs dpices telles que la cannelle. Au final pas mauvais, mais a manque un peu de corps et nez.

imdownthepub (14034) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from my anniversary collection given by Sandra, sourced by Fin, aged 7.5yrs. Clouded brown with beige head. There is a heavy, fruity sweetness to this from the start, quite plummy, damson like, fleshy with sucrose. The Belgian yeasts give pear drop notes, rich, clingy with a big dose of warming alcohol. The ageing has melded the flavours into a whole. Darn fine beer.

Bottle brought back from Bruges. Pours cloudy amber with a cream head. Sweet fruit cake aroma. The taste has more fruity cake notes with a little peppery spice and pear drops. The alcohol is well hidden. Very nice.
