COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered bottle.
Ingredients: Water, Barely Malt, Hops, Yeast.
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

Xstream (159) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Hazy golden beer with off-white head. Smell is mainly sour & hop. Taste is more interesting. It has a quite bitter hoppy, bready, herbal and spicy flavor profile. It’s the finish that’s making this one special. The hop bitter mellows out quicker then you’d expect when all the flavors seem to balance out better in a medium dry finish with soms citrus fruits as well. Developing back into the bitter hop flavor making the next sip another flavor sensation. Nice beer. Great? Hm ... not sure. I’m a bit fed up with the Saaz / Citra hop bitters many beers seem to favor nowadays.

Douberd (2284) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2013
Brown swing top bottle of 330 ml, poured into a footed pilsner glass. ABV is 6%. Beer is unfiltered and unpasteurized. First time I see such a pilsner. Yellow colour, very hazy body. Nice two fingers in height, white and soapy head. Good retention. Lots of the Saaz hops on the aroma, some bread maltiness too. Wow, taste is amazing! Is this really a pilsner, I ask again? Just an initial sweetness on the tip of the tongue and then is bitterness and hops all the way! A light apple taste somewhere in the middle. Medium body, average carbonation and a very dry and long finish. What a surprise this was! Definitely worth every penny, will keep it in mind.

Unfiltered and solid head. That its called a pilsner doesn’t do it justice. I think the Dutch make really interesting beer with one foot in Belgian tradition and one in the new experimental American style. Christoffel’s beers are however a bit more old fashioned in their approach. This bottle is slightly old but I’ve had this beer before. Pretty malty aroma with some yeast in it. There is a nice bitterness but it has more depth in it than just that. Not the best in the world but very drinkable and not too ’difficult’. Also works nicely with food as it doesn’t overwhelm. Also a lot more subtle in its style compared to a lot of new beer, which can actually be refreshing after a while. Bier/blonde is just excellent when its totally fresh. Will have again and would be really nice to have totally fresh. It has more body and the head is creamier then.
