COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quote from one of the brewers when I asked him what style it was :- "We made our own and its called Kompaan 20 ;-) I guess Its between a blond beer and an IPA. what do you think? De Paas described it as a blond beer that taste like a tripel but drinks as a pils." Brewed at Anders until 2014. Now most likely in a (yet) unknown brewery in Germany. They are planning production in their own facility.

DutchDrebus (5540) - Oirschot, - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle @ Benzai. Slightly hazy very pale yellow with a ginormous white head. Smells malts, grassy, yeast, slightly lemonish, slightly unfresh. Tastes slightly lemonish, fresh, malty. Not bad! Somewhere between a saison and a tripel. Medium body, soft carbo.

BeerViking (4100) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle at EBBC16, dark gold with faint haze and thin head, fruity honeyed nose, fuller bodied than the average blond ale but also dryish and hoppy-bitter. Slight spiciness, and a herbal bitterness in the finish.

ALIBALI (523) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2016
Klar belgische Hefe, viel Gras und einen Hauch Aprikose. Der Trunk erfrischend fruchtig und natürlich darf auch hier das belgische Gefühl nicht zu kurz kommen. Umfangreich geht’s zur Sache. Das Ende hat dann auch was tschechisches.....im Quadrat. Würzig und komplex. Klasse. 0,3/4,50€ on Tap im GALOPPER HH.

bonkiedeaap (619) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle from a local Albert Heijn supermarket. The beer is hazy yellow colored and has a stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is fruity, with tones of citrus and malts, but also notes of wheat, yeast, grass and spices. The taste is light sweet and malty with tones from the aroma. The finish is dry and bitter and leaves some spices.

Bosskie (725) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2016
Opaque but crisp hay-coloured beer with a weak head. Smell is bitter hoppy citric with leather and hay. White pepper, coriander. Hint of vanilla and minerals. Maybe some mint. Taste is bitter dry, ashy. Resin, quite sharp, with an astringent finish.

MichaelAwesome (6427) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Vollkommen klassisches belgian ale mit einer ebenso klassischen Note in der Nase von Vanille, Hopen und Hefe. Recht süffig und einfach zu trinken. Milder Abgang, ausgewogene Perlung und leichte Trinkbarkeit. Nicht schlecht.

rikstar (2114) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2016
Dit is niet mijn biertje, de geur gaat nog wel, maar de smaak is metalig en bitter, komt te kort op fruitigheid. nee deze neem ik niet nog eens.

CzechTex (135) - - MAY 27, 2016
On tap. Indeed a "tween" style, not easy to pigeonhole. Minor lacing, a bit acidic on the tongue. Murky, dusky color. Interesting variant, but of what? Curious, enigmatic.

vipinvelp (3738) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016
WEEKNLBIER festival. Opaque yellow, white lacing foam. Quite nice hoppy surprise still, nice bitter in aftertaste. Fresh beer. (Den Haag 201605)
