De Struise Tsjeeses Kerstbier 2013
A peculiar looking bottle label for the mighty 10% Belgian monster of a Christmas beer from the much respected brewers from De Struise. Did I say monster? Such a strong term for such a lovely beer. Tsjeeses meets the drinker like a warm bear hug of warming sweet spice, malt and creamy yeast. Deeper still we have mixed berries, leafy hops, brown sugar, caramel and plum. Incredibly drinkable for such high abv, you could call it a bold display of subtlety from a beer that isn't so much instantly likeably but gets better as you drink your way down the glass. Top class Belgian seasonal.
