Struise Tsjeeses is a Christmas beer by De Struise Brouwers. It has an orange color and a fruity aroma; a dry and smoky taste with hints of fruits and berries. This beer is extremely rich in flavor and it has an alcohol content of 10%.
This 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".
Serving temperature: 6-10°C
De Struise Brouwers are a small brewery in Woesten, in the very West of Belgium. There beers are very popular abroad, the most famous one is Struise Pannepot, a strong stout.
The label of Tsjeeses shows a person who looks like something between Jezus and Santa. Originally that person had a drunken look in his eyes and steam coming out of his ears. Because the beer was not allowed into the US with that label, the steam was removed from the ears and ‘Tsjeeses’ was given a pair of sunglasses.
