Vikking, een bier met ballen. Heel lang geleden ving een Hammenaar een Vlaamse gaai en leerde hem klappen (praten). Jaren later kwam deze wuiten in handen van een schipper die hem voor minder dan een schijntje gekocht had doch de vogel weigerde te praten tot de dag dat het schip vanuit de Schelde de Durme opvoer en onze gevleugelde vriend begon te roepen "kwek,kwek,’k ein Ham gezien!!!!!!". Deze vogel leidde de schipper naar de kant alwaar een kist met aloude Vikkingdocumenten waaronder het recept van een bier met ballen.

English: A long time ago, caught a Hamme Towards a jay and taught him clapping (talk). Years later this Wuite owned by him for a skipper who had purchased less than a pittance, but the bird refused to talk until the day the ship from the Scheldt and Durme elevating our feathered friend started to call "quack, quack," k ein seen !!!!!!". Ham This bird led the captain to the side where a box of old recipe Vikkingdocumenten including a beer with balls.

Hamirubi (370) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015
33cl bottle at home (21 VIII 2015). Orange, dirt to brown coloured beer with thin, little white foam. The flavours have something very fresh, some oranges or lime and lemon. There should be some cinnamon in there too, but I could not pick that up. The taste has less pleasant dirt and dust aromas, yet they are rather mild (a good thing!). The malt and bitterness are lovely, there is a lingering sugarness-sourness too - but oh so subtle -, it has a fruity vibe too and the alcohol is warming. A decent, nice, modest brew.

Alengrin (3685) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
Commissioned brew since 2010 referring to an old legend centred around an inhabitant of the village of Hamme. Yellowish white, rocky, sticky head, deep peach blonde colour with somewhat brownish hue, cloudy and even more so after adding the deposit, which in this case consisted of an ominous dark ’stuff’ on the bottom of the bottle. Strong yeasty and estery aroma, banana, pear, canned apricot, bread dough, ginger, cider, grass. Soft mouthfeel, rounded, fruity and very estery-yeasty with citrus touch, mellow caramelly maltiness, relatively soft carbo in relation to the head formation, a bit earthy in the end with a leafy, briefly sharpish hop bitterness and a bourbon-like warming alcohol effect. I am getting used to Boelens producing ’soup’, in the sense that some of his beers are infected and clouded after even the most careful of pouring, but in this case that didn’t bother me, this is quite a tasteful ale.

Bottle shared. Pours very hazy dark golden with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of Brett, citrus, fruits and malt (infection? But not really in a bad way). Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter and acidic. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Hazy orange color, good creamy beige head. Woody, spicey-yeasty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Some leafy hops, not bitter anyhow. White peppery spiceyness. Quite yeasty flavor. A bit of alcohol. Thinnish and ordinary ale.

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 18, 2013
330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
A touch vegetaly taste. Onion soup. Soft malty aroma. Dull, light grains. Some soapiness. Covers .5% well, but that’s the most positive thing I can say about it. A beer with balls? Nah, a beer that’s bollocks.
