"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.

Zilverenmaan (152) - 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 its nice.

mviljamaa (137) - Jyvskyl, 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. Its an interesting and elegant beer.

S_Side_Smitty (765) - 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 (2073) - 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.

Zilb (293) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 4, 2017
Amene par Pills. 2 mois APRS DLC. Blonde fin col de mousse tenue moyenne. Carbo de malade par geyser ! Arme de type bire industrielle mais beaucoup plus intense et profond : malt. En bouche, cremeuse et ronde. Final sur le malt gogo et une amertume bien dose. Simple mais efficace. Tres bonne bire !

rodsquad (204) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours yellow gold with a slight haze. Frothy off-white head. Aromas of peach, mild spice, dip dab sherbet. Palate is light with a soft body but a sharp moderate carbonation. Flavours as nose with an added sweet floral note. Its cutting sparkle makes this seriously refreshing.

DocLock (10574) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Draft notes from Whole Foods PM. Poured hazy straw with off-white head. Some hops, citrus, yeast, florals in the nose. Tasted like a Belgian single and saison hybrid of sorts.

wlajwl (6664) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Aroma is citrus/lime, malts and mild Belgian yeast. The flavor is citrus/lime, fruit, mild dark fruit, malts and a slightly sweet/smooth finish.

JPDIPSO (6178) - Wauwatosa, 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.
