JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, - OCT 27, 2012
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...

Poured a hazy reddish brown with a small clinging beige head. Aroma of musty chocolate over caramel malt. Medium body, flavour of vanilla smooth malt, a bit cardboardy, tastes old.

caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2013
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.

Martinus (4610) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2013
Slightly hazy reddish brown colour, beige head. Aroma of red fruits, liquorice, caramel, wheat, toast and spices. Decent hop touch. Light sweet, light bitter flavour. Liquorice, wheat and honey. Quite dry, sweet and hoppy finish.
Nice beer by a nice brewery.
