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.

TSJ 11, lot c 8, 10 shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours golden brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters, clove. Flavor follows. Caramel, fruity esters, clove. A bit thin but holding up well after 6 years in the bottle. 10% well hidden.

0.33l bottle. Amber color with small off-white head that disappears completely very quick. Fruity aroma (mainly apricot and orange) and honey. Taste is quite sweet, bit astringent with overall bitter aftertaste. Has plums, dried candy and caramel in between. Okay, but not really my kind of beer.

tap.strefa piwa. pomarańczowe, wysoka, drobnopęcherzykowa piana utrzymująca się do końca picia. prezentuje się naprawdę pięknie. w aromacie głównie miód i rodzynki. po ogrzaniu generalnie bez zmian. w smaku pełne, słodkie, ale nie ulepkowate, wyraźna kwaskowość gdzieś po drodze. alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa, nasycenie w punkt

Evilkniamhel (955) - 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 it’s best, but very nice nonetheless.

Bouteille 33 cl de 2015. Bière de belle couleur cuivrée mais troublée à mousse brunâtre moyenne. Nez fruité (pêche, prune, raisin), caramel. Grosse effervescence en bouche puis caramel, biscuit, fruits avec une petite amertume. Savoureuse, agréable. Bon produit de la brasserie Struise.

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!
