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.

Renobob (564) - 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 (212) - 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!

Sampled from bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Golden colour, large white head. Don’t like the smell. Taste yeast, malts, perfume. Ok body.

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

Douberd (1999) - 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.

tricksta_p (874) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
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.
