Appearance: Dark brown with a thick film of very clingy and sticky off white foam. Smell: Light sour, kettle sugars, citric hops. Taste: Starts malty with dark sugars and finishes with a bitter hop accent and a touch of taertness. Mouthfeel: A little above medium carbonation and body.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 330 ml flip top bottle.

The look is very dark and murky, with no head to be found. The smell is faint, but I detect dark fruits and caramel malt right away. A bit tangy on the nose but also sweet.

The taste follows the nose, with a sweet, tartness that can only be described as old raspberries and fig. Not the most pleasant taste on my palate, especially coupled with an extremely light mouth and almost no carbonation to be found. The alcohol is all but undetectable.

Overall it was worth trying, but not something I'd pursue again.

Served in a Christoffel cervoise.

It's been a little while since the gift set, but I couldn't resist putting another Christoffel beer in its proper vessel. This stuff pours a mostly clear russet topped by a finger or so of wan foam. The nose comprises dry caramel, barley, and a strong twinge of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, the barley and flowers dominating the proceedings in a jack-cheddar string cheese twist sort of way. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a decent enough dunkel, but just not really my cup o' tea.

330ml flip top bottle. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a small quickly fading tan head. Aroma and Taste of dark caramel malt, barley, Belgium yeast, bready, has some raisin and dark dried fruit esters and flavor, some tartness. Palate is a medium body, with mild carbonation lithe some sweet malt and yeast on the tongue. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeasty and bready with some dried dark fruit and mild bitterness. Overall a good drinking brew.

A - tiny light beige head which feel to nothing. Body is a deep brown with only the slightest red.

S - malt and bread. Just plain earthy.

T - what is this? Sour like green raspberries and less malt and bread. Could be good if I was expecting this.

M - pretty weak. Light on both carbonation and body.

O - Hard to say on this one. Maybe it has gone bad, but the sour has potential in this had I known it was coming.

A: The beer is very hazy brown in color with some reddish highlights and has some large visible particles of yeast floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down but left wispy lacing on the surface and a thick ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell has aromas of malts, dark fruits, sweetness and yeast.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell; it is quite malty with a bit of sweetness but neither of these flavors seems to be overpowering and are well balanced with notes of dark fruits and yeast. No bitterness is detectable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer because it is very drinkable and tastes like a “light” version of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale that has been aged and has lots of yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured a cloudy dark brown with a minimal head. No lacing.

Smells of raisin bread with a alcohol note.

The taste is disappointing. Some sweet malt but nothing that matches the deep color of the brew.

Mouth feel is watery and dilute.

Overall, if you see a Christoffel Blond, grab it; if you see this, best leave it alone.
