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.

dchmela (3085) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light orange amber with a thick white head and lots of yeasty sediment. Fruity spicy malt aroma. Malty candy sweet aroma with lots of hop bitterness. Once it warms I started getting more holiday spice and citrus in the taste. Very nice beer.

bhensonb (15832) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Bit of a gusher. Very hazy orange amber color with a transient white head. Aroma of citrus over yeasty malt. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is odd spice over candi with lots of yeastiness. Lighter fruits are definitely present. Finish is slightly woody and very tasty. Brilliant.

Light brown with nice foam and taste is fantastic. Some dried fruit, that I can’t put my finger on.
Taste likes nothing I have tasted before. Fantastic!

marcus (10736) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap at Toronado. This blonde ale poured with a decent off-white head. It’s basically a Belgian Tripel with some strange but tasty spices. The flavor is somewhat complex with lots of fruit and yeast related tastes.

rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Pours a hazy golden orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of apple, belgian yeasts, spices. Flavor is apple, yeasts, esthers, spices, bread, honey. Nice mouthfeel and slightly warming as you sip it. A very pleasant Tripel.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Draft at Toronado. Light orange pour, a little cloudy. Aroma is sweet, like apples and medicine. Flavor is the same, dense mouthfeel, and definitely seems like fruit beer base. Interesting.

4.1
TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 31, 2008
On tap at Capones. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of green apple, Belgian yeast esters, bready, candy sweet notes and tropical fruits. Flavor of troplical fruits, apple juice, bready, candy sweet and a nice hop flavor.

3.8
alobar (3940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Cloudy, golden-orange color with a white head. Aroma of caramel, spice and citrus. Inviting and warm flavor of spice, caramel, and honey. A perfect beer for a cold wintery night.
