We had to have a Christmas beer in our December pack, but none of our 2016 beers arrived in time. Luckily we were able to get some more of the Struise Tsjeeses 2015.
We look forward to our Christmas beers every year, though we never get to receive them before Christmas. Luckily these beers keep really well, and probably present even better the following year.
Tsjeeses is a 10% strong blonde spiced ale, lagered for 8 months on different stone fruits. They present early, with hints of apricot, peach and plum, and a little citrus tartness. The body is rich and thick, and hides the ABV so well. It’s a beer you could enjoy any time of year.
If you enjoy the Tsjeeses, take a look at our ‘Extra Beers’ page and you’ll see the Tsjeeses Reserva’s from 2013 aged in Port barrels or Bourbon barrels.
We’ve had these available before, and ‘found’ and extra carton hidden away. They were indeed a happy discovery which we’ll happily share!
