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

hopscotch (9387) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2003
RBSG2003 Hazy, straw-colored brew. Small, creamy white head. Lightly malty and floral nose. White pepper and jalapeno included. The taste is mild, light and well-balanced. Very astringent. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish.

TAR (2517) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Hazy light chartreuse. Chunky, meringue-like foam. Elegant aroma of cane sugar, wood, faint spices, phenols, dessert apples, fresh biscuits, wet cotton, matchstick, mint, and pine. Beautiful malt nuances beneath a layer of funky Saaz and subtle tropical fruits. Soft, airy, resinous mouthfeel. Only the slightest bit of crispness. Fascinatingly balanced earthy hop interplay paired with a lovely cane sugar sweetness. Round hops emerge after a coarse touch of earthy, piney hops. Lingering earthy, piney flavors alongside a dab of hay and peach doused, raw bready malts. Wet, herbal, and light salty finish accompanied with spruce notes and luscious pale malts. Not as dry as I expected, but it remains appetizing. This has everything I have ever wanted in a pilsner, and is a stunningly classy, flavorful rendition of an all-to-often misunderstood style.

rauchbier (3626) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2003
Bottle conditioned, or unfiltered. Pale gold with faint haze. Good rocky white head and good condition. Muted aromas of malt and hops that have a faintly apple edge and an almost Orval like yeastiness. In the mouth it is madly hop bitter but never gets out of balance, with a spicy pepperiness adding some depth. Finish is long hoppy and chalky.

GreatDane (101) - Skćvinge, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2003
Almost as good as a Pilsener can get - Has a long-lasting head and a dark yellow color

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2003
Hazy dark yellow colour, nice head. Lovely hoppy and lightly acidic aroma (grapefruit). Wonderful balance between the malty sweetness and the LONG very bitter finish. Considering the style, this is as good as it gets!

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2003 Pleasant herbal smell, somewhat bitter but very smooth with little aftertaste. Fairly strong for a pilsener; comes in a pretty fancy bottle as well.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 bottle. hazy golden body with a marvelous white frothy head and sticky white lace. grainy aroma with plenty of floral hops. very good balance. flavourful malts and adequate hopping. lingering bitter finish. I think this is a prime example of the style.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2003
hazy yellow w/ big, fluffy white head. Piney, herbal (lemon grass) nose. Smooth, buttery feel. Lovely bread and butter malt flavour giving way to a whack of hops in the finish. Very nicely structured.

Very fruity aroma. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thin head. Slight citrus taste with lots of hop bitterness. Christ awful its not.
