De Struise Brouwers
Struise Tsjeeses Reserva BBA (Bourbon Barrel Aged) 2012 Christmas Ale
Brewery: De Struise Brouwers
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
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.
Aged in Bourbon oak barrels for 6 months.
