“Foodpairing tip: caesarsalade met kip. Het zachte bier spoelt de zoute smaken van de parmezaan, het spek en de ansjovis weg en tilt de kip mooi omhoog, wat het geheel in balans brengt.” Sofie Vanrafelghem - biersommelier

Character, taste and aromas

Wipers Times Blond is a splendid pairing between refreshing, zesty flavours and the opulent, sweet taste of fruit that takes you to a higher plane. It is a veritable symbiosis of aromas of citrus and lime aired with velvety-soft vanilla and sweet honey coming to the fore in the taste. The floral touches yield a masterful perfume and make this beer go down a treat. The main ingredients - hop, malt and other grains – have gained a royal warrant for the supply of a perfectly balanced taste and the herbs can be given credit for the lovely aroma and refreshing finish.


Thanks to the dominant presence of citrus and its outstandingly refreshing touches, Wipers Times Blond really comes into its own when paired with fish and crustaceans.
