Absolutely delicous, hoppy pilsner. It has not been filtered or anything so you can see some hazyness which is of course nice if you really like beer. Very hoppy in a nice way. Strong beer, beautiful head and colour. One of the best beers overall!

Pale, a great white head, fresh hop aroma, flowers, a little bit "minty". Medium body, full of hops, fruity, melon, citrus, little bit "minty", bitter and a long aftertaste. Balance and soft. A great beer, maybe the best beer in the Netherlands.

Perfect hoppy smell for a dry-hopped beer. Smell contains a lot of spalt hop which is quite nice. The appearance although is quite bad since the foam dies very quickly. The taste is sweet and very hopbitter in the finish. Great beer.

Bottle. Thanks to Armando, that is Gergely. Colour indicates a murky yellow unfiltered beauty with a rocky off-white head. Huge hop aroma along with what seems like Brettanomyces or the likes. There’s lemon and oranges, and it’s funky. Flavour is sweet malty, sorbet vanilla/citrusy ice-cream with lots of hops, let alone a balanced bitterness, which comes late in the shape of grass and then I feel it’s growing. Medium-full body with superb vanilla-sorbet features. The flavours come in layers, sweetness, sorbet, tropical fruits. Great beer!

Hazy golden pour with a tight head. The aroma is just awesome. Redolent of hay, violets, sweet flowers and lots of herbal character. Very zesty and a little bit lemony as well. Fresh zesty hoppiness. A litle bit of fresh crackery pale malt with the faintest honey aroma (not sweetness - just the aroma). Soft palate with a firm hoppy bitterness. It is awesome stuff.

Bijna perfect bier. Afgelopen zaterdag een leuke presentatie gehad van Bart van de Christoffel-brouwerij uit Roermond. Vijf verschillende bieren met de naam Christoffel en één van Martens met de naam Kristoffel. De Christoffel Nobel vond ik met vlag en wimpel boven de andere uit steken. De Christoffel XXV vond ik de beste, maar omdat deze alleen gebrouwen wordt ter ere van het jubileum. Daarom is de Nobel mijn EERSTE keus. Christoffel-brouwerij: mijn diepe waardering, ga zo door!!!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2009 Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of bierkoning. Appearance: It pours a beautiful hazy golden beer with a nice average sized dense white head. Good lacework. Aroma: The nose is wonderfully hoppy, fruity with mandarin, elderflower, pineapple, mint, Devonshire cream, rose and horse blanket appearing. Flavor and palate: Sublime hop profile. Great balance. Good bitterness. Peppery. A lot of elderflower, mandarin, rose and pineapple showing up again in the taste. Medium to full bodied. Smooth. The alcohol is very nicely hidden. Dry finish with lingering hops and licorice which makes you eager to take another sip. Overall impression: My kind of Imperial IPA or ESL or whatever. Excellent. Clearly underrated in my opinion. Thanks a lot bierkoning!

a Beer to be proud of...! Nobel is a good drinkeble beer with an unique taste of trou ingerdients. The normal Chrsitofeel is fine, but the Nobel is even better. It’s the best dutch special beer on the market.

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Very intriguing beer. Straw colored, opaque. Fruity esters in the nose. Sweet grainy pils flavors in the malt base. Some light banana and pineapple fruitiness. Some grassy/hay hop finish. Perfectly carbonated. Very well done.
