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.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Really impressed by how well balanced and how well hidden the alcohol is. A lot of sediment in this one.. And a serious gusher, too! Banana, vanilla, candy yeast, and some apple notes. Struise never dissapoints.

330 ml bottle - pours dark orange with thin white head and minor yeast floaties; aromas of musky apples, yeast, candy syrup with a nice spice kick; full bodied and zesty; apples, spice and everything nice; maybe a tad too sweet at first, but comes more together as it warms; dry, sticky finish

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated yellow-orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and mild spice. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and mild spice. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

From a bottle at SB&WF 2009. Hazy amber, small white head. Fruity and malty with earthy hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Fairly dry with a soft lingering bitterness.

Pours out orange with lots of stuff and some froth. Smell is sweet but funky. Taste is fruity and boozey. Flavor of caramel, spice, bread, ripe fruits, and wild yeast. Some alcohol warming creamy sticky finish. Good brew, a funky tripel.

garthicus (2920) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 1, 2009
Shared by Jerc and Mabel. Appearance: Beautiful golden orange with lots of flecks, small white head. Aroma: Perfume, citrus, spices, rusty with cardamom and coriander. Flavour: Spicy, warming, alcohol, mint, sweet with bananas, a little odd and muddled, not bad though with a long yeast and spice finish.
