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.

Note: Initially from Brouwerij Louwaege, from 2001 to 2007 brewed in Jumet, afterwards in Alken.

The "blonde bier" from the Houtland, taken over from Louwaege by Alken-Maes in 2001. Tasted in both the original Louwaege version as the later Alken-Maes version; the first was a bit dryer and had a more elegant and refined, herbally aromatic hoppiness to it. The current version is still a decent beer though, with big frothy head and orange blonde colour; fruity aroma, soapy, peaches, sweet apples, grass, faint hints of lavender and grapefruit; rounded palate with fruity sweetish taste in onset, smooth with relatively strong carbonation though not as strong as in Duvel, against which it is clearly positioned commercially, warming alcohol and flowery hops in the finish.

Een heel lekker bier met een uitgesproken, volle smaak. Echt een aanrader om eens te proberen.

Renobob (1051) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 26, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Blonde belge classique, un peu trop sur le sucre candi. Finale sur la levure.

Case (288) - GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
Pours clear gold with white head. Fresh fruity aroma, a bit pilsner-like hops. Taste is alternatingly bitter and sweet with some spice and a bit of fruityness. Ends dry. Very well balanced. Good!

Mooi helder geel gekleurd bier met veel koolzuur. Smaak is bitter met zoete bijsmaak, caramel achtig. Erg smakelijk bier.

Douberd (2897) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle at Cafe Samson, Nijmegen. Poured into a big tulip. Golden orange colour on the body, with on efinger of white, soapy head. Thick with very good retention, leaves light lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite faint but refreshing, some light hops. Taste is nicely fruity, peachy, with the alcohol being notable but not annoyingly so. Medium thin body, a bit high on the carbonation. Overall good belgian strong.
