COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keikop is een blond bier van hoge gisting dat gebrouwen wordt met 3 verschillende hopsoorten. De combinatie van deze hopvariëteiten geven het bier een subtiele hoppigheid en maken het een prima dorstlesser.

Keikoppenbier is a blond, high fermentation beer brewed with 3 different hops. The combination of these hop varieties give the beer a subtle hoppyness and make it an excellent thirst quencher. "Keikop" is the nickname for the inhabitants of Poperinge, Belgium. This nickname originated in the Middle Ages and refers to their stubbornness. Ons eerste bier is dus een doordrinker met een alcoholgehalte van 6,1%. Momenteel is het enkel beschikbaar in 75cl flessen. Keikop is de bijnaam voor een inwoner van Poperinge. Deze bijnaam vindt zijn oorsprong in de middeleeuwen en verwijst naar zijn koppigheid.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Really heavy on the apple nose. Some straw, light grass, and a touch of yeast. Sweet bready malt on the nose, too. A nice malt sweetness on the palate. Tons of apple, some citrus peel, and floral notes. Kind of bitter, but not awful.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
330ml bottle from Chez Marie, Ieper. Pours hazy deep amber with good white bubbly head. Aroma is light hop. Flavours appear quite muted, was really looking forward to this given De Plukker’s hop-growing background, but ironically that’s what it seemed to lack. Some malt, yeast and hay, but ultimately not a memorable beer.
