2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is perfumed and astringent. The flavor is malts, very dry and a mix of vegetables and spices in the finish. I’m guessing both of the bottles I got from this brewery were old.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Delicous beer! Got it as a draft. Excellent body. Some grainy and fruity sweetness combined with a solid hoppy bitter. Leaves a great finish with a long lingering combination of sweetness and bitters.
It’s like a more full bodied and fresh tasting white beer, but better :)
Too bad the company went broke :(

Goldgelb, ganz leicht trüb mit viel Schaum. Citrus und Grapefruit im Aroma. Liquider Antrunk, weiches Brauwasser. Startet malzig-fruchtig, geht dann schnell in eine angenehme Hopfenbittere über. Gute Süffigkeit.

Hazy golden yellow with white foam head. Aroma is hard to detect. Taste is bittersweet, hops prevael. Aftertaste is long lasting bitter beer. (Velp 201301)

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Barely no aroma on this one but I know it’s usually nice and hoppy. A bit sour and yeasty though. Slightly darker than the bier/blonde. Sweet in taste but no alcohol even if its 8,7%. Malty with some bitterness. Usually this one is a bit better than bier but this one has lost some hops. Very nice body. Sort of belgian in style, but I think its better. Brouwerij t’Ij has some beer that is similar and also excellent. Christoffel is a quality brewery without so much experimental stuff. Solid great beer but without freakiness. Jopen, emelisse and de molen are of a more freaky nature, Ij somewhere in between. They’re all good though. Will certainly enjoy again.

Corked 33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, grains, and floral hops. Flavour is much like the aroma.

Dirty cloudy gold with specks of sediment, big bubbly head and streaks of lace. The first thing I notice is the alcohol - it arrives early, and provides warmth far beyond the finish. The taste begins with sweet malt that is given a hard push by floral bitters. Both sides are so persistent that neither can gain a strong enough foothold to dismiss the other. Most of the flavor shows up in the back of the mouth with a fullness that suggests sipping may be the only way to enjoy this. I like it, but one is enough.
