3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted as Wijᵴzer Dry Hopped Special Edition Thick, rosy-beige head over cloudy chestnut coloured beer. Sweet, very caramelly nose, maltsugars and -syrup abundant, molasses, autumn leaves, Bock-like. More bitterish, much drier than the nose suggests, but again an outspoken autumn leaves flavour, again all as a Dunkler Bock. Wheatcharacter, however, not outspoken. Dry finish. Feels very carbonated, refreshing if served cool enough, but creamy MF. Pretty good. Christoffel beers tend to have that extra that a lot of similar craftbrews seem to miss, without having to resort being ostentatiously spectacular. As German craftbeer...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, as Wijszer dry hopped. Hazy copper color, big brownish head. Aroma of fruity hop, wheat, ctirus, red fruit. Quite sweet taste, fruity, some caramel. Body is a bit on the thin side. Some bitterness in the finish. It’s quite a while since I had the regular version, but I think the dryhopping gives the beer a more refreshing character with more fruity notes. Not the classic combination you’d expect to work, but it turns out quite nice.
