"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.

From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours golden with a huge head. Needed two glasses. Too sweet for my pallet and too little hops. A little bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TrefwoordPunk (1304) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a semi hazy yellow to golden with a small to medium white head and an aroma of sweet malts, yeast, spices, ripe fruits, floral hops, lemon and vanilla. The taste is light to medium sweet with a medium body and a medium lasting finish

Eastwood (501) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 16, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Tomada en cata ratebeer Asturias XIII. Rubia potente. Turbia.Frutal. Refrescante. Buena. 4 cereales como la Triple KARMELIET

ardeo (561) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2017
Blonde un peu trouble à mousse +/- stable. Nez de triple : grain, malt, citron, herbes. Bouche intéressante assez complexe, un peu sucrée, épicée, un peu amère, fraîche et gouleyante. Une bière de soif réussie qui ne mérite pas son faible score.

Parmenion777 (363) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2017 Draught Leper - Pours a clear golden colour with a medium sized white head that settled. Aroma is citrusy, some yeastiness, some wheat and light vinegar notes. A crisp malty yeast flavour, some honey sweetness comes through, along with a decent bitterness in the finish.

ManVsBeer (10967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2017
Bottle from Bier Paleis, Brugge. Golden-blonde with a thin head. Typically Belgian with a fair strength translating into a bubble gum sweetness.

zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Hazy pale straw coloured with a very thick white head. It has a floral, fruity and herbal flavour followed by sweet toffee, spice and fruity notes on the warming finish. Good.

Syfher (500) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2017
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 !

JoeinDahlem (1603) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2017
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.
