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.

da questo momento in poi (cambio gettoni allo zbf 2013) comincia un vero e proprio delirio/declino..il birrificio struise diventa il mio principale punto di riferimento..e come potrebbe non esserlo??da quello che ricordo posso solo dire che su 4/5 birre assaggiate ognuna era un vero e proprio capolavoro..nel vero senso della parola..aromi impressionanti,complessi allennesima potenza..ogni sorso era un tripudio di sapori quasi impossibili da decifrare completamente ma che sicuramente meritano un altro assaggio..per la maggior parte ho assggiato birre scure,questa invece era di un biondo/ambrato molto deciso..micidiale e il tutto servito alla spina insieme al GATTO LOPEZ :D zbf 2013

idserda (12) - Zwolle, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2016
0.33l bottle. Amber color with small off-white head that disappears completely very quick. Fruity aroma (mainly apricot and orange) and honey. Taste is quite sweet, bit astringent with overall bitter aftertaste. Has plums, dried candy and caramel in between. Okay, but not really my kind of beer.

tap.strefa piwa. pomarańczowe, wysoka, drobnopęcherzykowa piana utrzymująca się do końca picia. prezentuje się naprawdę pięknie. w aromacie głwnie mid i rodzynki. po ogrzaniu generalnie bez zmian. w smaku pełne, słodkie, ale nie ulepkowate, wyraźna kwaskowość gdzieś po drodze. alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa, nasycenie w punkt

Bottle from Appellation Wines dalry road. Pours hazy brown, lots of sediment. Nose of caramel, molasses, maple syrup, forest floor, slight oxidised notes. Taste is spiced fruit, boozy fruit punch, more molasses/caramel/forest, wee bit past its best, but very nice nonetheless.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle 330ml (2013) - cellared for 3 years. Served at room temperature. Pours a murky bronze. Head is large, foamy, beige and lasts well. Aroma is rich and complex; leafy hops (light), candied orange slices, dried apricots, brandied apples, lightly toasted raisin bread, cooked brown sugar, allspice and cloves (light). Flavour is smooth and slightly vinous with a very light leafy-hop bitterness; lightly toasted wholegrain bread, candied orange slices, brandy soaked dried apricots, dried currants, cooked brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger (light) and a lightly spiced finish (-coriander). Full bodied with an oily texture, medium carbonation and a good length, dry finish. MUCH better than I was expecting!

ALIBALI (964) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 A long hard ride. Wild and very kruterwrzig. S, wollstig und very sweety 😁. Dunkel malzgranatig und ein auergewhnlich komplexes und schweres Kaminbier. Wurde uns in einem wunderhbschen Struise Glas eingeschenkt. 0,33/5 im CAFE DE KOFFER Groningen. War die 2015er Edition. Heute die 2016er Version vernascht. Entschieden kratzbrstiger und gestrter als die 2014er gebourbonagede Variante, die wie zeitgleich vernaschten. Anscheinend hnlich Wrzaffin, wie sein Vorgnger.....krastig und angeburnt.. 8/4/9/5/18.
