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.

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 (7929) - 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.

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 didn’t like this beer that much.

BelgiskOlklub (1085) - Viby J, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2009
Hazy orange body and a small white head. Aroma is fruity and spiced. The palate is warming and powerfull. Dry taste.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2009
Golden pour with a modest head. Firm palate of well chosen bitters. But their carrier is a bit flat. Not much to say about the rest because there is none. I’m underrating or the community is overrating this one.

Hazy golden color. Average head. Aromas of malt, spice a some citrus. Initial flavors of malt, orange peel and ends with spice, a little hops and a nice warming sensation from the alcohol. Interesting beer.

3.3
Sickboy282 (1116) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Poured into a Duvel glass with a light, frothy white head with decent retention. Aromas of mild skunk, bread/dough, and herbs. Mouth feel is typical of a triple with effervescence, but have a light lingering sweetness.....very light. Flavors of a mild saltiness, spruce, a hint of peppercorns and ginger. A strange finish similar to a pale lager. Not very enticing

3.5
riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Murky golden orange pour. Not much head. Some banana and spice notes on the nose. Lightly sweet undertones. Banana, clove, and fruity sweetness is followed by peppery spice and a hint of alcohol. Earthy and pepper bitterness in the finish. Solid warming sensation as well. Moderate carbonation.
