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.

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

Very much carbonation. Nice, blond beer. Big head. Tastes a bit sweet first, but very bitter mouthfeel.Average.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2014 Pours a slightly hazy yellow/golden with a nice big white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, fruits, hops, some spices. The Hapkin is a rather typical Belgian strong ale, but it’s enjoyable regardless.

freretoc (981) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 17, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, petite blonde du plus bel effet avec une mousse dense parfaite. Une bière qui n’a pas beaucoup de nez et pas beaucoup de goût non, peut être bu un peu trop fraiche à revoir...

rfranssens (29) - Hulst, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2013
Soft blond beer, citrus fruits. Very small tone of metal but not to disturbing for me. Overall an average blond beer, a bit boring for me.

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

psilosophy (531) - 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 (1986) - 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 (1514) - 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.
