Christoffel Robertus is a low-fermenting ruby-red beer, brewed in the Münchener-style. It is a malty, fresh beer with a light sweetness. The typical hopbitterness found in Blond, is very lightly present in Robertus. The use of an extensive amount of selected barley gives Robertus the special malty taste and aroma.

330ml swing-top bottle from Beers of Europe. Oh, yummy. Big malty sweetness. Nice body - light enough to be refreshing and easy to drink, yet thick enough to be chewy and satisfying. Nice hop nip in the finish, lingering pleasantly. Good range of malt and hops flavours - toffee and banana notes alongside, earthy, herby flavours. Some spice and light citric fruit. Mmmmm, what a beauty. Enjoyed this one very much!

2 liter flip top Jug filled 3 weeks ago. Decants the perfect looking Vienna; shimmering ruby-brown with a decent creamy off-white cap that lasts and laces. Perfect color and texture for this rare style. Aroma is lushious decadent toasty vienna/Munich amber and red malts...malty to the max, light wisps of alcohol and light sweetness like sponge cake. Lush velvety soft mouth feel, big chewy toasted malts, very mellow, light woody tones, a wee hint of cocoa and a light drying finish with clean dark lager taste. This is still my favorite vienna...the one by which I measure all others...it’s authentic and as true to style as you can get...Anton Dreher would be pleased with this brew.

2L Bottle shared with family (really fresh bottle): Poured a deep clear brown color beer with a nice nig foamy head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some sweet ester is very interesting. Taste is very smooth with some creamy notes with some sweet caramel malt notes. Body is full with a huge malt backbone and some great carbonation. I have to admit to being really surprised about that one.

Dark hazy orange, bubbly head. Very nice aroma of fresh fruit, yeast, spice, light chocolate and caramelly malt. Body is citrusy and fruity with yeast being dominant and rounded off by an organic hoppiness similar to the blond. Nice sweet malt backbone. Wow, this is an outstanding, complex lager. Unlike any I’ve had, better than the blond, a more reserved hoppiness and a beautiful fruitiness.

pretty distinctive beer. plenty of spiciness in the aroma. tasted of nz hops - slightly citric and tropical but with some dubbel sourness in the background and quite a light but firm body. something else

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2004
(330 ml swingtop bottle, bought in Denmark). Copper colour, hazy, good thick head. Lovely aroma of spices, leather and caramel - from the aroma, I’d swear this was a Belgian ale. Bottom fermented it is, and it’s easier to sense this is a lager through the flavour and aftertaste, which still are very good. Malty flavour, mild spices and caramel without too much sweetness. Lightly hopped. Moreish.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 8, 2002
Hazy apple cider appearance. Foamy off white head, small but tight. Light carbonation. Intriguing aroma. Doughy malts, yeast, mint, cardboard and berries. My initial taste impression - strawberry cream. Thick body, toasty and minty. Loaded with malts and spicy hops. Dryish despite the maltiness and fruity aspects. A sawdust aroma and flavor appears towards the end. This brewer is remarkable. The complexities are numerous and tasty to boot. Long finish and malty aftertaste. Thanks again Oakes. What else does he make?

Orval-looking beer, perhaps a little darker. Malty aroma, with some fruity spiciness in there. Taste is very good. This is a very good beer. I really like the complex malt.

Dark amer with a tall big bubbled tan head. Somewhat fresh toasted grainy aroma. Firm smooth body. Flavors somewhat nutty and toasty. Additional malty and fruity flavors follow with a crisp finish.

Cloudy medium reddish brown. Some unfiltered sediment. Light beige head. Fresh grainy, grassy, toasty, malty aroma. Firm yet soft feel. Clean, complex flavour of nuts, fruit, toast, whole wheat bread. Dry, peppery finish. Good bitterness.
