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.

11.2oz bottle. 2015. Pours reddish with a small white head. Aroma is raisins, spice, some toffee, and light plum. Taste is toffee, raisins, light berries, some toast, some sugar, yeast, and spice. Earthy yeast and an odd spiciness in the finish. Moderate bitterness, although it becomes more present as the beer warms. Light booziness on the tongue. Malty and bittersweet with just enough hop presence. Medium-full body. Soft carbonation. Oily mouthfeel.

Versione 2015 X mas, colore ambrato scuro, schiuma media poco persistente, al naso frutti rossi, ciliegia, e uvetta. Sapori di caramello, frutti canditi e vaniglia, inizio dolce che vira verso il secco, si percepiscono le note di alcol. Una birra decisa, con un bevuta non troppo avvolgente.

Pours dark gold or light copper. Sweet Belgian candy sugar aroma. Bit of figs, dried fruits, slight hops and wax. Lot’s going on. Tastes sweet, bitterness is strong, spicy and candy sugary. Lingering slight hop tingle. Good stuff.

guzgorog (847) - FRANCE - MAR 17, 2017
Cuvée 2015. Magnifique robe rousse, fin col de mousse blanche. Nez complexe de candi, fruits murs (prune, raisin, fraise, pomme). Bouche sur la pomme, fraise, herbe, léger côté poivré, épices. L’alcool est bien chaleureux, maertume moyene, corps liquoreux, légère astringence. Très bonne bière, bien qu’un peu lassante sur la fin du verre...

On tap at Struise Brouwers @ The Old School pours out amber copper color topped with a small sand head. Nose is very nice pit fruit raisins light roast caramel toffee sweetness. Taste is more of the nice pit fruit rich malts and a nice sweet and booze heat combo.

330ml bottle 2015 vintage. Pours clear red-amber with fizzy head that quickly disappears and steady streams of cascading bubbles. Fairly sweet aromas of toffee, plums, raisins, herbs and spices, some alcohol. The taste has an initial toffee and toasty maltiness, some stone fruit fruitiness, earthy yeast character, then it really dries out nicely and finishes with a firm spicy and herbal hop bitterness. Noticeable but not overwhelming booziness and alcohol sweetness. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, doesn’t drink as ’big’ as expected for a 10% ABV beer, but a good thing. Really good and, for me, much better than the barrel aged versions which come across somewhat muddy.
