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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours very cloudy amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity nose with a touch of yeast. Medium body with a very smooth mouthfeel. Quite fruity, some overripe accents, lightly vinous - sherry-like - with an underlying tartness. The bitterness is quite discreet. Elegant, but not really what I would expect from a Christmas beer. 051207

omhper (24774) - Tyres, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2007
Bottled at Monks Caf, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, firm head. Fruity nose with herbal spices - cinnamon and ginger spring to my mind. Vinous with vital, rounded mouthfeel. Fiery alcohol lies undeneath and some pleasant lactic acidity adds freshness and complexity. Full bodied. So wonderfully complex - every sip brings out a new aspect. Theres orange and butter, berries and, muscat wines and everything else I want. I tried to be a sceptic, but failed hopelessly. Oh, what a beer!

Travlr (23968) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Bottle poured by the man on the label, at the schoolhouse. According to Urbain, tsjeeses "is an expression of stupefaction." Slightly cloudy amber orange with a white head that settles quickly. Aroma of stonefruits. Actually, thats not true, because I dont know what a stonefruit is, actually. Flavor starts malty and progresses through spice and dark fruits to a slightly bitter finish. Medium body. It was very special to drink this one with the master himself. Thank you Urbain!!!
