"Wipers Times 14" is het eerste bier van de nieuwe Ieperse stadsbrouwerij "Brouwerij De Kazematten", gevestigd in de unieke historische kazematten van "Het Houten Paard" aan de Rijselpoort. Het is een blond speciaal bier van hoge gisting, gemaakt uit 4 granen, uitsluitend gehopt met streekeigen hop en bevat ook 4 kruiden. Het bier heeft zijn naam te danken aan de "Tranch gazette" die door Engelse soldaten werd gedrukt tijdens de eerste wereldoorlog in deze ondergrondse schuilkelders voor hun kameraden aan het front. Omdat de Engelsen de naam Ypres moeilijk konden uitspreken vertaalden ze dit tot Wipers en zo is de naam van de krant ontstaan en heeft ook het bier zijn naam bekomen! In het logo van de krant is een distelblad terug te vinden van de Mariadistel (Blessed Thistle) en dit is meteen ook n van de kruiden di in het bier gebruikt wordt.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Hazy light golden liquid with a small lid of off white bubbles. Fruity aromas with, pineapple, orange and apple fruit salad. Soft palate with a light effervescence that gently glides the liquid. Light sweet start, with some wintergreen in the middle. Slightly acidic in the finish and linger, gets very close to sour. I could easily see this paired with a fresh load of French bread and goat cheese out in the countryside.

berkshirejohn (6287) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A slightly hazy straw coloured pour with a billowing white head; floral aroma with hints of yeast and citrus; a tart, white wine taste to start but rapidly mellowing with some honey; then some herbs adding spice and warmth and a grassy bitterness; then a dry cider apple finish. A fresh and refreshing light Belgian ale - really enjoyable.

Ernest (7518) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle (BB Mar, 2017). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of green grapes, kiwi, confectioners sugar, coriander, orange zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant aroma is certainly boosted by spices but they are soft and fruity in effect rather than harsh and piercing like most overspiced beers. Kinda sweet in the mouth without quite enough bitterness or tartness to clean up the finish, but its easily drinkable. Nice appearance and mouthfeel help a bit. Nothing special, but pretty well-made for a spiced Belgian golden.

imdownthepub (13873) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Beer Hawk, Harrogate, N.Yorks many thanks to Derek & Kelsey. Pale gold with white head, heavily carbonated. Thinnish beer, burpy bubbles with a chalky, mineral type character, sweet, grassy and yeasty there are hints of banana and pear in the flavour. Light in the close, just okay really.
