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

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2003 Oh my GOD! I can't believe what kind of total SHITE I wrote about this beer a few years ago... Obviously I was working on memory. This has to be one of the world classic lagers. It is a double hopped pilsener with tons and tons of noble hops. HOLY shit. La Trappe Blond (I must have been totally inebreated). NO WAY this is a spectacular beer that defies style designation. It is unique in every FN way possible. It is like an estra strength Czek pils that keeps that kind of balance all the way. Super hoppy and perfectly malty and wonderfully blond (and cloudy - it is a bottle conditionned pils). I have been loving this beer for a long time now (years!). It is astounding to me that this rating has remained current.****************************************** is interesting how Bov and Josh loved this beer and to what extent. It is cloudy (different for a pilsner) and is bottle conditionned. I somehow did not remember it to be extrodinary in anyway. I thought it was a simple blond ale not unlike La Trappe's light ale version. I will have to rerate this beer when I get an opportunity. 2.9 out of 5, 2002

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 very bitter - but in an aley sorty of way - grapefruit and mandarin. crisp and dry and drinkable. nice shade of green in colour. but not the most amazing pils i've had. rer8: i make that the fifth bottle i've had - every time i come at it hoping to like it, but every time it's just a bit too thick and unrefined in mouthfeel, although nicely bitter. the hops are pinier than i like in a pils too.

Not normally a Pilsner drinker, I found this to be very tasty with good hop flavor. Not easy to find, but worth the effort.

caesar (4716) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 Rerate: i have to say, this beer is more than a regular pilsener. At first, I was not very convinced by this beer, but lately i drank this beer in a bar in Amsterdam and it could quite satisfy me. It has a very pleasant bitterness in it, also seen in the Pilsner Urquell.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2002
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Milky blond, creamy head with small bubbles.Hop and a tiny perfume aroma. Sweet start with a lasting bitter finish. The finish was a bit to bitter for me.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2002
A hazy golden color. Has an unusual taste up front, moldy grass? Hop aftertaste with a pleasant bitter finish.

Hazy pale honey with white creamy large bubbled head. Lavender perfumed soap, hops and light fruit aroma. Medium body with a very strong bitter flavor especially at the start. A slightly sweeter middle, finish and aftertaste. Good if you like bitter, otherwise I think it hangs around too long and spoils what is otherwise a quite good beer.
