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

Zlotta (2516) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Van Bieren as St Christoffel Blond at 5.4% abv, best before October 2017 (so five months old I guess). Minimally hazy, straw yellow with a medium large, foamy, stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, slightly floral aroma of lemon peel, fresh cut grass and some grapefruit. Sweetish, already slightly bitter, fruity-floral, moderately grassy taste of lemon peel, grapefruit, some honey and straw, followed by medium long, dry-bitter and grassy finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very fruity and refreshing, reveals again how nice unfiltered Lagers can be.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, corn syrup, yeast, fruit, grain, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid yellow/golden amber beer with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, corn syrup, yeast and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with grain, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Amazing balance with all the flavours you would expect in a quality Pilsener. Could have benefited from some fruitier hops, but that is about it. The great appearance and palate are definitely the highlight.

Dit is een zeer verfrissend blond biertje met zeer veel smaak eraan. Drinkt gemakkelijk weg en is best lekker.

Cristobal37 (884) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2016
Slightly hazy and yella. Lots of carbonation. Nice fresh wet hop aroma. Bitter piney hops. Shame they dont just call it a pils, cause it really is a good one. Drying bitter finish with almost a rye maltiness to it. Long lasting. Probably the most bitter pils Ive ever had, but not over the top. I preferred the old label, but at least the beers still good.

330 ml. bottle. BBF 10/07/2017. Clear oily golden, little white bubbles, small. Noise is oily, vegetable, corn with big floral hop profile, herbal, grains. Taste is sweet cereal, grains, honey, very oily, big floral & weed bitterness, weeds, strong bitterness, caramel, cornflakes, Lingering hop profile. Complimentary sparkling cereal & grains body. Dry. Interesting, you need to get a bit into it. The best way I can describe this one is by saying that it is like pale lager but good. No flaws, rich, big hops but still comparable elements just none of the flaws or usual awful notes. Very big hops. Interesting.
