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

33cl swing-top bottle, 2.75€. Look: Hazy yellow colour, unfiltered, nice creamy white head. Hoppy nose, hmmm! Aroma is prominently hops, with bitter orange peel. Is this a pilsener? More similar to a soft IPA to me... It has an american hop feel in the beginning, then the saaz remain on the tongue. Malts seems a bit subdued, less bready than others, still being smooth. However, aroma focus on the grassy notes, possibly a remain of yeast. Alcohol hardly noticeable. Taste, again, hops does a major role. Minimal initial sweetness and an exciting bitter bite, good and not excessive. Finish is quite long and hoppy, bitter, soft. Body is medium, low carbonation. Overall an unexpected nice surprise, very good when a hoppy one is desired. Price over the average, but hard to find and absolutely worth. Somewhat similar to Urthel Saisonnière.

Bottle. A high-rated pilsener from the Netherlands? Definitely worth checking out. Pours a hazy, honey-hued orange body with a tiny white head. Nose is pale malts, grass, honey, hints of straw, peaches and caramel. Nice and very well integrated. Taste is grains, honey, cereals, hints of bitter grass and heather in the finish. Nice and mellow. Slick mouthfeel, medium to full body. Definitely a different kinda pilsener, and pretty good too. But at 6 % ABV, I’m starting to doubt the categorization here...

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
33ck Flip-top bottle taken at Cafe de Grendelpoort, Valkenburg during a stay over in Oct 2012. The beer pours a cloudy/hazy orange colour: on top a white covering of thick foam, which stayed for the whole tasting. The nose was yeasty and hoppy with a strong fruitiness to the fore, a semi-sour citrusy smell became more apparant as the beer warmed in the glass. Taste wise it was a pleasant blend of hops and malts, each around the same in their strength of flavour. So, well balanced and neither sweet or dry. Refreshing and easy to drink with enough hop bite to excite and plenty of malty sweetness to counteract those bittering hops. The alcohol sits nicely within the brew and is just about noticed in the mouth feel, wouldn’t want it any stronger.

MADpalace (178) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2012
Tasting various beers with friends. Summary for this bottle: Cloudy with small head. Full fresh citron/lemon smell. Taste of attick and heavy bitterness, probably that is the heavy hop used. It was not appreciated.

Blond, goede kraag die vrij snel wegzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Ruikt bitterhoppig en een beetje fruitig. Smaakt idem. Goede nasmaak, medium body.

#952 Ersmabin ich mir nicht sicher, ob das hier wirklich ein echtes Pils ist!?? "Christoffel Bier" steht auf dem Etikett; nix mit Pils...Der Vermerk "dubbel gehopt" weist zwar in diese Richtung, aber im Glas habe ich beileibe kein Pilsener. Sieht vielmehr recht dunkel aus in Richtung orange und dazu noch ziemlich trüb. Im Aroma eher süßlich-sauer, merkwürdig. Im Antrunk auch eher malzig und die 6,0% Alk. schlagen unangenehm durch. Im Abgang kommt dann eine ziemlich strenge Herbheit, die das bisherige Geschmackserlebnis ziemlich auf den Kopf stellt. Für mich viel zu unausgewogen und auch nicht wirklich bekömmlich; der Schädelfaktor ist ausgesprochen hoch. Zum Glück hab ich kein Verlangen nach einem weiteren Glas Christoffel, Schutzpatron der Flodders ;) Test vom 11.2.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,7,6,6,9,7 - 6,80

sulawang (542) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
pours cloudy orangish/brown (unfiltered) with a smallish head, micro CO2, lots of slow moving CO2 streams. Clean yeasty malts on the nose. Drinks with silky creamy CO2 up front, flavours of sweet bread, medium malts, light toffee, and then the medium-bitter sharp hops kick in until the yeasty finish. Medium complexity, medium-high depth, great transitions, good carry, great drinkability.
