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.

33cl bottle. Bottled September 2010. Poured hazy, golden orange with a white head. Spicy, earthy and sligthly sour aroma. Flavor is more witbier like, coriander and some other spices, rubbery finish. Something about the taste I disliked.

psilosophy (490) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAY 27, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Blond légèrement trouble, jolie mousse abondante et de belle tenue. Une attaque d’agrume contre-balancée par un côté houblonné assez marqué. Très désaltérante, on attendrait d’avantage de longueur en bouche mais pour une bière à 5%, c’est déjà très bien. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Slightly hazy, pale golden colour with a big and blond loose foamy head. Slightly dusty and soapy malty and subtle fruity nose with spicy notes in the background. Sweet and slightly sour flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Initially malty and sourish fruity taste with notes of ginger spice; sweet and sourish fruity finish with spicy hops and a tinge of metal. Not really a pleasure. 06.XII.10

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy blond coloured brew, not a Witbier, to low of alcohol for a Blond, to pale for a Belgian Speciale. But just good enough for me.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of sour fruit salad and alcohol is not displeasing. Big white head on cloudy amber. Big shocking sour fruit salad flavour with an off-tasting finish. Finish is chalky, chemically and sour.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2010
Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of grainy malts, yeast, and a touch of hops. Flavor was kind of bland, herbal with some sweetness.
