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

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.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2003
A nice pilsener. Very hoppy and extremely dry. There is no doubt that this is a good beer. Bready palate and quite bitter notes.

Best till Oct 2003. I found somewhat muted wet earth in the nose with grass clippings. Decent none-the-less. Nice appearance. Cloudy gold with a faint pale yellow head. Citrusy and bitter that drys out the back of your tounge. Hoppy. Worth having again but much fresher next time.

This beer has a yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

Sweet fruity aroma, not what I'd expect from a pilsener. The aroma really grows on you. Yeah, there's no way this is a pilsener. It's too malty and yeasty and lacks that astringent bitter finish common with most pilseners I've had. Reminds me more of a lightly colored doppelbock. To put it more bluntly, I like this.

(Bottle) Thick white head and a golden body. Aroma of hops with slight spice. Tastes of hops and finishes bitter. Interesting pilsener...

madsberg (10457) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2003
Golden coloured with a long lasting white head. Has a nice hoppy aroma with notes of spices. Flavour is bitter and hoppy. Very pleasant aftertaste, with lots of bitterness. Very good pilsener.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2003
Hazy golden-orange colour with a big shaving cream head that leaves some beautiful lace as it recedes. Spicy hop aroma with just a hint of skunk, but not enough to turn me off. Great herbal hop bitterness in the flavour, with a citric edge and a yeasty malt undertone. Finish is crisp and bitter. Pilsners rarely excite me, but this one really caught me by surprise.

Aroma: Skunk with a hint of hops. Appearance: light, cloudy, ugly. Flavor: N/A Palate: Bad Overall impression: I do not like this, but based on popular vote, I might have had a bad bottle...
