COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HAPKIN has a very good fresh, flowery, Saaz hop aroma, a very big creamy head, a soft malt character, and a spritzy, perfumy fruitness drying toward the finish.

i completely agree with the commercial description. I love the bitter dry finisih, Palate is full, thought dominated by sweet fruityness

psilosophy (472) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUL 26, 2013
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, limpide, mousse assez abondante de bonne tenue. Les arômes sont fruités (fruits exotiques), printaniers mais contre-balancés par une belle petite amertume. La carbonnation est crêmeuse et agréable. Trouvée à l ’entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.

minutemat (880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from the beer palais on the Route de Poperinge border. Pours typical blonde, wheat, malts, floral, medium body. Not an outstanding blonde with too much of a strong flavour, kinda average, but ok nonetheless.

Bosbouw (814) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2013
Mooie heldere gouden kleur. Volle fijne schuimkraag. Ruikt naar frisse mout en hop met kruiden. Smaakt kruiden met een fris bittere nasmaak.

fresh lemmon hoppy aroma, clear blond beer wit nice foamy head, Round malty taste some yellow sweet fruits, dry bitter aftertaste a bit sticky. Not bad at all

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2013
Blonde claire, pétillance moyenne, col épais qui finit en mousse fine. Plutôt maltée, petit goût métallique, un rien fruitée, sécheresse sur la fin. En gros, rien de bien spécial ni de désagréable.

Jeroenhensen (159) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2013
Mooie donkere diep oranje kleur. Begin is de smaak wat bitter, maar daar wordt hij mooi rond en vol

ruigo (853) - PORTUGAL - MAY 17, 2013
It pours a golden yellow, a little hazy with medium carbonation and creamy white head. Not much notes in the aroma, starts a little hoppy and ends quite dry. One can feel the strong alcohol level. Not bad!

veramente buona..bevuta in una calda giornata di sole a Maastricht dopo l’arrivo dei giovinastri..aroma ben maltato e fruttato,lieviti,corpo pieno e gusto altrettanto maltato,biscottoso con luppolo sempre presente ad ogni sorso ma nascosto dal malto pronunciato..promossa
