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.

Had this one over Thanksgiving dinner! Nice, lightly foggy golden color with a good white head. Nose is light fruits and malts with some nice spices. Similar in the mouth: light fruits with some nice, zesty spices. An amazing Triple, and good compliment for Thanksgiving dinner! I wish I had more for the rest of the holiday season...

Foams quickly out of the bottle to produce a murky brown-orange body with a light khaki colored head. Aroma is dulled yeasty esters, caramels, dried fruit, lightly spicy. Taste is sweet, caramel, fruits, raisins, apparent alcohol, spicy yeasty estery finish.

This is not a Christmas beer, this is simply a good beer. Fruit comes in first. things like apricot and other dried summerly one, orange peels a little bit. Afterwards a nice hop comes and stays in the mouth for a while. Now I wish I could taste the reserva!

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2009
Bottled 33cl. A fantastic beer throughout. Hints of jasmine and ginger. Mindblowingly good hop profile. I reveled in every sip.

eManu (542) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2009
Pours an orange color with lots of yeast chunks and a nice off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, malts and yeasts, even a little champagne-like aroma. Flavors is again very fruity, raisins and grapes, herbal, yeast, honey and spices. Low carbonation, creamy and very smooth, good sweetness and bitterness. This is a very complex brew, lots of strong aromas and flavors, with a long lasting taste in mouth. This is really great Xmas brew, a great way to end your winter day.

A hazy light amber coloured ber with small white head and medium carbonation. A fruity yeasty aroma mixed with some hops. Full bit sparkling palate. Finish is bitter, bit roasted ending with an alcoholic touch.

DYCSoccer17 (3674) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 24, 2009
11 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma is grassy, herbal, with some yeast esters present. Almost smells like theres a little funk or barnyard in there. Fair enough aroma. Transparent golden body with a small, quickly dissipating whitish head. Starts pretty chewy, and stays thick and chewy throughout. A bit buttery with a lot of doughiness. Some spiciness is also present. A bit of an herbal, spicy, grassy hop bitterness to finish. Ethanol is hidden rather well. This is above average, but nothing mindblowing. Certainly not worth the $7+ I paid for this.

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James. Pours hazy orange/copper with a nice, foamy white head. Aroma of apricot, pear, barley, bread, and hints of spice. Moderate body. Finish is smooth with a bit of a bite. Very good tripel.
