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

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 (1717) - 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 (642) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
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 (441) - 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.
