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.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde dorée. Palais sur le sucre avec un léger léger houblonnage. Aucune complexité, finale courte. Bof

Erzengel (5621) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
25cl, best before 06.2015. The beer starts smooth and fresh. Lots of floral but a bit mouldy hops. Smooth, easy to drink, hints of grain. Fresh smooth floral body. Hints of must. Interesting, but the dusty mould is a bit too much (but I think it depends on the hops used...).

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 Shared 75cl bottle from Poperingse Bierfestival 10/2014, bb04/2016. But of a milky pour with massive clearing station foam, radiant with unfiltered yeasty proteins and those wet Westhoek grasses. Taste sees a nice delayed triggering of hop layers, moving from inviting green herbal chlorophyl over meadow grasses and to lingering pollen and straw. Gentle fruity sweetness underneath, candied lemon and unripe apricot tartness (wheat used). Added sugar gives this a refined slender drinkability, making it the slightly less ponderous, but equally Belgian-hopped local cousin of Hommelbier. Is that a local Poperinge hop derby brewing on the horizon?

Hugh (181) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Lots of foam. Settles down OK. This pretender to the Hommelbier crown is a far better beer, IMO. Overall a pre-craft beer, nicely hoppy amber. Hard to rate as I just had a Verzet noAH 4.9%, a modern hop beer, a different class. But this is nice enough. .
