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.

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.

Quite watery and tasteless. Most pronounced is the bitterness, and even that not in a good way. This was definitely a disappointment.

KoNrRiI (1229) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A deep, gold color with some floaters and a small, white head leaving some lacing. Aroma of hops, straw, hay, some yeasts, and wet clothes. Taste is also hoppy, straw and some malts feature too - very basic. A medium body, a slick texture, and an above average carbonation. Finish is shot and maltier than the rest but does not decide the beer’s character. Overall the beer is simply alright.

Hopverdju (710) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2016
Blond bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: redelijk gesloten. In de verte lichtjes honing en wat oxidatie? Smaak: licht bitter, iets groen, onrijpe banaan, lichtjes metaal. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitter.

nathanvc (241) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2016
Pours hazy orange/light brown with a medium white head and a lot of floaties - not very nice. The aroma contains dough, yeast, citrus, orange peel, grass, hops, hay, but also something soapy. Initial flavour is light bitter, only light sweet inbetween, with an astringent finish. Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation. Quite dry. I almost didn’t finish it.

vincentvega72 (429) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
UPDATED: APR 24, 2016 Donkerblond licht troebel bier met oranje gloed. Weinig uitgesproken aroma, beetje moutig, licht fruitig. Héél véél vlokken in het bier dat was minder. Smaak beetje hoppig, beetje moutig, beetje zoet fruitig. Afdronk licht bitter. Niet echt denderend deze had er meer van verwacht...

Idiosynkrasie (6530) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 12, 2016
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with huge, soft foamy, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Grassy, herbal, slightly earthy, hoppy aroma, hints of peppercress. Taste is dry, grassy hoppy, slightly herbal, hints of peppercress, an oily touch of parsley, subtle biscuity malty sweetness with vegetable touch, cabbage; tangy hop bitterness throughout. Green, elemental, rural. Definitely interesting.

erickok (5452) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2016
Very cloudy, amber dirty brown. Very bubbly, amateurish strong yeast, lots of fruity esters. Quite sweet but yeast gives bitterness. Full but very unprofessional palate. It’s drinkable but not exactly the latest word in brewing... (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

Hazy, orange colored, floaters, medium off white frothy head, nice lacing and good lasting. Aroma is of malt, bready yeast, fruity (lightly banana-ish), bit spicy, lemony and grass. Taste is medium- sweet caramel, malt, bit bready yeast, some fruit, slightly lemony and grassy, medium bitterness. Medium- bodied, soft carbonation.

tricksta_p (3617) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle at CASPAR, Arnhem. Aroma of fruits, grass, herbal notes, hay, leaves, hoppy notes. Flavour is above moderate bitter with a dry finish. Body is medium. Pleasant grassy herbal-ish hoppy Belgian Ale.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
From a bottle shared by Craftmember. Very thick and rocky, densely lacing, egg-white head, clearly hops-enhanced, over a lightly hazy golden blonde beer. Agreeable aroma of dried hay, field flowers, white pepper, grass, white bread, dried citrus peel, honey, peach, apple peel. Dry, crisp fruity taste, green apple, green plums and orange peel freshness, very bready and yeasty middle phase with soft to medium, minerally carbonation, finishes with noble ’Euro’ hoppiness, grassy, very floral, peppery, hayish and leafy, hiding a slight hint of whisky and lingering breadiness. Old school, but I like this a lot, it feels very fresh, honest and a bit rural, just the way I like my Belgian ale.
