Brouwerij de Kazematten is a brewery in Ypres, Belgium, which proudly incorporates both local ingredients and WWI history into its beers. Named after the dark-humoured “trench gazette” of the British soldiers who were based in the town, the Wipers Times 14 is made with local “Blessed Thistle” and hops. This Belgian Pale Ale has a nice blend of flavours and aromas: grass, mango, peaches, herbs and a grainy maltiness. The rather sweet flavours are tempered with a distinct, yet subdued, bitterness. Its smooth, creamy quality is finished with a lingering dryness. Very refreshing and very nice.
