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.

Yves (2995) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2009
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 (3683) - 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.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2009
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.

jredmond (8049) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Bottle split with Pat and Sean. Aroma is spice, perfume and some kind of fruit. The taste is really good, simple but extremely well balanced.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2009
Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Hoppy citrus and orange aroma. Quite fruity bittersweet taste. The alcohol is very well hidden. Quite a good beer. It is however not very outspoken, good, but just not very special.

wimpie133 (381) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle, 33 cl. Orange coloured beer with white stable head. Smell is fruity, light sweet and malty. The taste is a good mix of malts, light fruity, light sweetness on the background, some spices included with a light hopbitter finish. Also some alcohol noticeable in the taste. Not reallya great taste, but very well balanced and complex beer anyway.

BMan1113VR (7921) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Expensive little bottle ($9 for a 11.2oz?!). Number 11. Pours with a weird and unattractive muddy golden brown body and a white head. Aroma is nicer than the appearance. Caramel, fruit esters, peaches, nectarines, brown sugar, candi, light spice. Taste of belgian yeast, apricot, decently hoppy/bitter and spicy. Some fruit notes in the finish. Creamy carbonation, nice body and alcohol feel. Interesting take on a tripel.

StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Very cloudy golden amber with a one finger white head. Can see the spices in the beer floating on the head. Peachy, dark fruit aroma. Spicy flavor. I didnt like this beer that much.
