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.

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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - 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.

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.

Bottle poured a hazy orange with fishys and a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of pear, cinnamon, apple, orange zest and a hint of clove. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a lightly warming finish. Flavors of pear, apple, cinnamon, carmel and a hint of honey with a smooth lightly warming lingering spiced finish.

sebletitje (10067) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2008
Another impressive offering by tpd975. Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma is very sweet - honey , sugary - with some fruity hops, and yeasty. Taste is hoppy with the nice Belgian yeast notes. Fruity notes - apricot. Alcohol is present and offers a warming mouthfeel. A good triple and something that wont come around too often.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Draught at The Trappist. Had this side by side with Pannepot, and was surprised to find that I liked this much better. Amazing beer and the best tripel that I"ve had yet. Orange-gold with a creamy head. Incredibly expressive fruity aroma with lots of peach, pineapple, apricot and apple, along with some yeasty spiciness. The flavor is just an awesome balance of fruit, spice, and alcohol. Medium bodied with smooth bubbles. I"m dying to try the reserva now

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tpd975. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a one finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast, caramel, citrus, bread dough, and spices. Taste is the same as aroma but more prominent. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Pours foggy golden orange with a finger thick cream colored head that diminishes to a layer of foam across the top. Tons of sediment. Nose is sweet citrus and yeast. The flavor is a tangy citrus and sweet fruits finished by a subtle hop profile. Quite coating on the palate.
