"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 "Tranché 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 één van de kruiden di in het bier gebruikt wordt.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Tulip glass; from the fridge. Nice Tripel/Strong Belgian beer with a powerful aroma and taste, with some sweetness. We are again in front of an usual strong blond beer, but with less sweetness than usual, which is nice !

Attractive, clear blond with sticky lace and sturdy-ish foam, but cloying in taste and smelling exactly like that medium we used to grow fruit flies in grade school. Must be one of those herbs that’s in there. Off-putting. You know a botanical that tastes better than random herbs? Hops. I hear they grow a lot of them near Ieper. Worth a try.

Hoge gisting / veel bubbels Niet te zwaar Zoals een goede blond ................................... -& via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gnerally a nice dubbel, well malted caramel notes, but smoky notes start to develop in the finish and ruin it.

Bottle at the Elm Tree from Belgian National Day Festival. Light gold, hazy with a tiny film of white head. Honey, rice vinegar, paint in the aroma with lighter touches of wheat and vanilla. Taste has a light yeasty sweetness at first. Then a committed bitterness follows, which quickly turns to a medicinal sour. Long astringent finish. Crabapple and lemon juice in the uncompromising aftertaste, with a parting shot of raw honey. Carbonation isn’t heavy but it certainly lifts the slick body. I ended up enjoying this but it does take a while to get used to.

Zilverenmaan (217) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2017
Old bottle: best before june 2016. Little bit of gushing but only small head after pooring. Poors clear blond. Smell sweet-alcoholic, not particularly fruity, some yeast. Taste rather thin but still crisp: a soft wheat-ale with a gentle spicy finish, again some yeast. Mouthfeel soft. Would have been nicer without the esters, taste is too faint for an abv of 6.2% but it’s nice.

mviljamaa (183) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 22, 2017
Pours with a good amount of fluffy white foam. Color is cloudy orange. Fresh aroma has yeast and grain flour aromas, some fresh maltiness. Palate is fairly well balanced, a bit floury or yeasty though. Taste is fresh and has a variety of grain flour flavours. There are faint hints of herbs (particularly there are oregano and chervil like flavours), but I cannot identify them. The pairing of the grain flavours and herbs is very good. It’s an interesting and elegant beer.

S_Side_Smitty (776) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2017
Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and grainy, nice. Taste is everything you would hope for from a bonde - pomme-like sweetness, mellow meadow inspired grains, and faint chamomile & thyme (kinda guessing on those). All leading to a sweet/bitter finish. Nice.

tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2017
Tap at the Answer. Hazy wheat with thin head. Smells grapey and lightly boozy and grainy. Flavor is apple, tart, a little sweet, asnd a little astringent. Not bad.
