Christoffel Blond is a bottom fermented golden-coloured beer with a full body, a very balanced taste and a beautiful bitterness due to a generous addition of fresh hop during the brewing-process. The aroma is fruity and has a fresh taste with a pleasant, hoppy finish. After the bankruptcy of the Christoffel brewery in early 2013, brewed at Proef in Lochristi

330 ml. bottle. BBF 10/07/2017. Clear oily golden, little white bubbles, small. Noise is oily, vegetable, corn with big floral hop profile, herbal, grains. Taste is sweet cereal, grains, honey, very oily, big floral & weed bitterness, weeds, strong bitterness, caramel, cornflakes,… Lingering hop profile. Complimentary sparkling cereal & grains body. Dry. Interesting, you need to get a bit into it. The best way I can describe this one is by saying that it is like pale lager but good. No flaws, rich, big hops but still comparable elements just none of the flaws or usual awful notes. Very big hops. Interesting.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle from Sterk in Amsterdam. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of light stone fruit and mild, pale malt. Med body, but the carbonation level helps with that. The flavor is spicy, fresh stone fruit with some pale malt which provides adequate support for the fairly strong hop load. Granted it’s bottom fermented, but it drinks like Belgian Ale. Calling it California Common would seem a bit odd, but it does suggest a spicy Anchor Steam. Good stuff in any case.

Tap at ‘t Arendsnest. Hazy orange gold color with a creamy white head. Light stone fruit aroma with a hint of citrus. Rather bitter and fruity flavor. Something of citrus rind. Finishes nicely bitter. Refreshing.

jamaty (1542) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Pajiza, amarillenta turbia, con dos dedos de espuma. Aroma interesante, citrico principalmente. Se trata de una lager con doble lupulo y algo mas de alcohol para una pilsen. Sobre todo destaca lo primero, muy aromatica, citrica y frutal y amarga. Buena carbonatacion y agradable textura. Merece.

flying_pig (1251) - SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2015
330ml Bottle in Café De Spuyt, Amsterdam (€5.50):
A very nice pilsner that went down quite nicely. The beer had an excellent balance with a solid fruity backing & plenty of flavours to keep you interested as well as remaining refreshing & easy to drink throughout. There was definitely more hops than I was expecting & the finish was quite a dry one but overall the beer was very good & well worth trying.

Moravius (906) - Beijing, CHINA - JAN 17, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Bierlieb, Berlin. - Orangegelb, schön trüb mit reichlich Schaum, der sich lange hält und schöne Ringe im Glas hinterläßt. - In der Nase reiche Hopfennoten, die an tropische Frucht erinnern. - Im Antrunk scharf grasiger und kräftig herb-zitrusfruchtiger Hopfen: Zitronenschale, Harz, Basilikum. Trotz der heftigen Hopfenattacke ist noch Platz für eine weiche Malzsüße. Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig, weich im Mund. Der etwas höhere Alkoholgehalts verleiht diesem Bier eine spürbare Schwere, die die Aromenfülle unterstreicht. Im Abgang kräftige Bittere mit Zitronenschale, Nadelwald und Harz. Sehr langer, bitterer Nachtrunk. - Wuchtig und sehr aromatisch gehopftes Bier. Kein typisches Pilsener, aber ein Hochgenuß.

GSAP (611) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2015 Meest neigend naar pils, maar subtiel op alle vlakken. Mooi granen, steenfruit en gras in aroma, prima prikkelende bitters en mondgevoel in balans. Kraag staat fier overeind, dik en vettig. Verfijnde tussendoor als het wat lichter kan of mag. #2 lichte verse kruiden, geldstukken en wat citrus in aroma. Smaak is bitter met zuur met frisse elementen. Nasmaak blijft bitter. Palate min1

The head is ok, the body blond, a bit cloudy. It smells malty, bottomfermented, dry, fresh, bit hoppy. The taste is yeasty-dry, hoppy, nice malty. Pretty good for a Pilsener!
