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.

I prefer this one above duvel. The taste is more bitter, and there is less sweet honey taste.

This Belgian is ok. The high ABV not to strong. Somewhat bitter and spicy flavor.

Foggy blond colour with foamy, thin, white head. Heavy saaz aroma. Thin bodied. Dry hoppy flavour with some residual sweetness underneath.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2002
I see Iím in the minority by not caring much for this beer. Alcohol shows through in a noticeable way. Crisp and somewhat unpleasant, like a Belgian blonde. Didnít care for the spice.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2002
Clear golden and malty sweet with a little bit of apple and yeast. A nice drinkable belgian that has nothing that really stands out.

booyaatribe (453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2002
Not bad. Itís got a lot of yeasty carbonation, and more bitter notes than most Belgian Blonde ales.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Pale, lightly clouded amber body, well carbonated with plenty of foam. Aroma is a little subdued, light fruitiness and a nose tingling peppery spice. Sweet apple taste, truning fruity and honey as it warms. Nice spicy, peppery finish, and just a little bitterness. Fruity sweetness develops as it warms, but makes a very good beer cold too.

The head and hops, give this mellow beer the perfect compliment to fish and lemon.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 This beer has a pale yellow body - hue with a sweet initial flavor and a light body. It is a very nice blond beer.

Indra (2663) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 5, 2002
Hazy (bottle swirled and poured), glowing yellow color with huge amounts of foam, effervescence and lace and a light dusting of sediment. Spicy, fruity (pear, melon) slightly herbal and faintly sweet aroma. Flavor holds some nice, peppery Saaz spice, lightly honeyish malt sweetness and some lemony citrus. Faint hint of alcohol in the finish along with some decent hop bitterness. Medium bodied and with a light, drinkable consistency. A tasty enough golden strong ale.
