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.

ALIBALI (1123) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 A long hard ride. Wild and very kruterwrzig. S, wollstig und very sweety 😁. Dunkel malzgranatig und ein auergewhnlich komplexes und schweres Kaminbier. Wurde uns in einem wunderhbschen Struise Glas eingeschenkt. 0,33/5 im CAFE DE KOFFER Groningen. War die 2015er Edition. Heute die 2016er Version vernascht. Entschieden kratzbrstiger und gestrter als die 2014er gebourbonagede Variante, die wie zeitgleich vernaschten. Anscheinend hnlich Wrzaffin, wie sein Vorgnger.....krastig und angeburnt.. 8/4/9/5/18.

Cristobal37 (884) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 4, 2016
Lots on the nose. Sourness, spicy yeast, brown sugar. Like a fine dubbel with some sweet malts and warming doughiness. Interesting mix of sour and traditional dubbel. Some medicinal bitterness in the finish which didnt sit so well. Very soft and the alcohol is nearly completely undetectable, but I expected something like other Belgian christmas beers.

Evilkniamhel (689) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines dalry road. Pours hazy brown, lots of sediment. Nose of caramel, molasses, maple syrup, forest floor, slight oxidised notes. Taste is spiced fruit, boozy fruit punch, more molasses/caramel/forest, wee bit past its best, but very nice nonetheless.

jamestulloch (3700) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white head. No lacing. Aroma of syrup and strawberries. Flavour of caramel, peppery malt and heather honey - sweet but not cloying. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Drinks well for the strength but lacks complexity and depth.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle 330ml (2013) - cellared for 3 years. Served at room temperature. Pours a murky bronze. Head is large, foamy, beige and lasts well. Aroma is rich and complex; leafy hops (light), candied orange slices, dried apricots, brandied apples, lightly toasted raisin bread, cooked brown sugar, allspice and cloves (light). Flavour is smooth and slightly vinous with a very light leafy-hop bitterness; lightly toasted wholegrain bread, candied orange slices, brandy soaked dried apricots, dried currants, cooked brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger (light) and a lightly spiced finish (-coriander). Full bodied with an oily texture, medium carbonation and a good length, dry finish. MUCH better than I was expecting!

Si la brasserie De Struise avait une devise celle-ci pourrait tre : le got avant tout. Leur recherche de la complexit et des armes est particulirement pousse. Mme si cela nest pas la saison, je me tente la dclinaison en bire de Nol. Peut tre lenvie de garder une me denfant et de retrouver les bancs de lcole. Dune couleur ambre, trouble, celle-ci prsente peu deffervescence et aucune mousse sa surface. Comme toute bire de Nol qui se respecte, celle-ci prsente un fort titrage alcoolique, de 10% Abv, pour nous rchauffer. Au nez, les armes sont trs suaves, sur les fruits confits, le pains dpices et les abricots secs. Lattaque premire est sur le miel laissant ensuite place lamertume et un corps qui se densifie et se complexifie sur des armes pics, de pain dpice et de pruneau. La densit gustative, importante, manque toutefois de matrise et dsquilibre fortement la Tsjeeses. La finale, longue, apporte de surcroit des notes dalcool vieux tel que le cognac avec une touche liquoreuse provenant dune saturation en sucre. Le palais est alors compltement perdu avec une impression de lourdeur soutenue. En conclusion, la Tsjeeses mriterait dtre pure afin de gagner en lisibilit gustative. Il faut nanmoins saluer la complexit de cette bire. Et une chose est certaine, je suis bien rchauff!
