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

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 (2879) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2002
Golden color with a off white head. Spicy, piney aromas. Light malt with a kick of hops. Robust finish that calls for more.

DukeofYork (44) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2002
Oh my god! This is what pilsner is truly meant to be. Almost like a Denison’s Weisse (hey, list what you know), but much more hops and considerably more complex in the finish.

Looks almost Belgian. Foamy, cloudy, nice looking beer. Tasty. Kind of spicy. Dry and smooth at the same time, with a super aftertaste.

Radek Kliber (6386) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 17, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 Bottle 330 ml
Appearance :Fine haze with bright amber color to it , good bright creamy top. Good lacing.
Nose:Sweet malty nose , grainy with light citric hop touch.
Flavour/Palate: Medium bodied with rich juicy malt and bitter green hop finish. Hint of apricot and mango all placed on soft sweet blanket. Alcohol is tertiary and serves as flavour blender with warming feel. Felt slightly empty .With Chrisoffel its hit and miss and 2007 shipment fairs less desirable than previous ones. Previous rating was 16/20 .
2006 Ahhh that’s what I like in those beers, nice fresh aroma. Very natural. Healthy looking golden brew, nice head (hick lace), slightly cloudy. Wow what an intensity and freshness. Dabosk (Paul) is right great beer. It had the bite that matches well refreshing qualities. Neither to creamy nor watery nicely balanced.

Hazy bright yellow appearance, big foamy white head that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Nose is grassy with a firm sweet maltiness, a fruitiness that lends ot apricots and hints of nuts. Body is smooth and malty with a firm dry organic hoppiness in the finish. A top notch pilsner as far as that goes.
