COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HELLEKAPELLE from Brouwerij de Bie is an unusual pale ale with a straw color, hoppy aroma, light to medium body and clean malty flavor. It’s bitterness that starts in the middle of the palate and dominates through to the finish comes from Poperinge hops, wonderful thirst quencher.

Bottle. Pours a Pilsener color, hazy / flaky sediment at the end of the bottle. Aromas are grass, citrus, koriander, cheese. Taste starts sour, coppery. Subsequent sips are pilsener like, but with a subtle bitter undertone. Little watery. I get a taste of sellery, onions. Some cheese in the aftertaste. Good substitute for a pilsener, quite refreshing. Would pair well with a fish meal or salad such as nicoise.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Blonde session ale since 1994, with snow white, thick head and deep golden blonde colour with orangey hue, hazy. Citrussy and fruity aroma of pale malts, orange peel, apple, pepper, yeast, some solvents too. Malty onset with fresh sourish citrus, finish mildly hoppy. Make sure to get this as fresh as possible: I had a few infected ones too, with mouldy aroma and / or lactic acid in the taste.

Regular Belgian blond beer. Bit more hoppy and bitter than usual perhaps. And the Poperinge hops are always nice.
