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

Came in gift pack with correct footed glassware. Beautiful yellow color with foamy beautiful head. Lacing throughout. Lemony & yeasty throughout. Cant wait to try the Robertus.

POP! went the little swing-top bottle, releasing aromas of bread, yeast and fresh cut grass. Poured nearly hazy golden with a short head that lasted for most of the glass, leaving thick clinging lace. Palate is milky thick, short shot of lemon zest at the roof of the mouth, biscuity bread, yeast, some hints of spice. Here comes the big finish - yes, saaz and maybe other hops as well. Assertive and piney, the end is dry with some lingering resins. I've been craving a good pils lately, too bad I haven't found this in a 6 pack!

Finally found this stuff...pours a hazy golden orange with medium white head. Beautiful hop aroma. Spicy pine hop bite, plenty of malt with well balanced sweetness, buttery smooth at times. This is my kind of hoppy beer, the hops don't knock you over with brute force. This is just simply an extremely well made beer, something I wish I could find more regularly. I didn't think I would found I pilsener I enjoy more than Prima, but this might be the one.

Nice slightly hazy golden color with a really nice white head. The taste slightly bitter but otherwise very well balanced.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2004 I like this one. Not a very interesting beer but easy, smooth and refreshing. Hazy golden body with a tall foamy head. Mild but pleasant aroma of yeast, wheat, hops and fruit. Bitter hoppy flavor with flower and fruit notes.

AndersR (196) - rhus, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2004 Rerate:Light golden color, large frothing head. Very hoppy aroma and flavour. Slightly bitter finish. This is, i think, the best Blond i have tasted! The dominant hop along with the malty bitterness and lack of sweetness that some blonds have... just -delicious!

This is a good pilsener. Spicy, pine, and slightly bitter. Finishes crisp, clean, and dry.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2003
Hazy golden colour. Large white head, nice lace. Hoppy and little sweet aroma. Taste starts a little sweet and yeasty. Finish is very long, certainly hop-bitter (pine...) and dry.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 Rerate: A truly great beer - among the greatest ever, I think. Past the butteriness that I and other mention, there goes this tiny little lilting sour hay. This has got hop and malt pouring out. Fantastic. Original: I think joey_c nails it here - this is herbal hop heaven (Saaz and...something else...spicy Hallertau?), but also very buttery, with even piney bitterness. Lovely lovely stuff; full body (although I was expecting even more), excellent handling of the alcohol (when most lagers approach 6% they get stinky, IMO) - delicious and big thanks to radiomgb!

Clear gold with a slight yeasty haze. The beer has piney, spicy hop aromas and has more hop than malt flavors. Lots of carbonation gives it a spritzy feeling that is well suited for a hot day. Ends with an assertively bitter finish. One of the better pilsners out there.
