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.

Icedwarf (566) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en kruidig met sporen van anijs, vanille en rook. Drinkt makkelijk weg. Smaak blijft helaas niet erg lang hangen.

Dans le descriptif de cette bière sur ratebeer, on parle de blonde, ipa, triple et pils, tout en rangeant la bière dans la catégorie belgian ale … 5 catégories, excusez du peu !!! Quant à moi, pour mettre tout le monde d’accord, il me semble qu’il s’agit plutôt d’une bitter … Bin oui !! Niveau abv de 5,2%. Couleur jaune tendre, avec un tout léger voile. Bulles fines, vives, mais peu nombreuses, en quelques colonnes disparates. Mousse qui est un nappage très aéré à 1mm. 1ère bouche assez structurée, à la belle entame sur malt et houblon , avec une amertume aiguë. Arrière-bouche bien fraîche, vivante, avec ce houblon bien incisif. 2ème à l’amertume pointue, avec un peu d’épice. Arrière-bouche longue, en équilibre malt/houblon. 3ème vraiment agréable, malt bien présent, amertume en avant. Arrière-bouche très belle, quoique plus courte. Longueur avec de beaux éléments, mais parfois un petit manque de consistance. Jambes denses, bien marquées. Levure un peu épicée, bien structurée, belle veine. Alcool mieux que son niveau, quoique un peu juste sur la longueur. Finale qui ne déçoit pas, mais qui désoiffe ... CONCLUSION : bière intéressante, à laquelle on peut juste reprocher un petit manque de complexité, mais c’est peu de chose pour une bitter, puisque le but d’une telle bière est de désaltérer !! Objectif atteint, mon général !

TtV (186) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy gold with a beautiful full white head that lasts. The aroma has yeasts and a mild sourness. The taste is refreshing. There’s a bitter undertone with a nice sour taste. Not regular, but still very drinkable.

Vells (885) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2015
Decent brew, but not much of a Belgian here. Light bodied blonde with accent on rubbery hops, bit grapefruit, some spices, grain. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness in finish.

330ml bottle (Celle, Riga)
Nice gold, huge frothy persistent head. Has a pleasanty spicy grainy aroma, classic belgian ale yeast. Moderate palate, fullish and sweet palate. Simple belgian taste, a little bit rough. Pleasant enough, but drinkability not so great. Finish nicely spicy, resiny tingly hops, Hmmm, not doing it for me.

Xstream (192) - NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2015
It’s like a blond beer mixed with IPA. The typical IPA hop, but more smooth. Citrus, yeasty, metal, hennep and koriander. It’s ok and fresh, but not great.

Bottle at Bokaal, Rotterdam, Saturday 14th March 2015 in company of Dad & Barry Pours light gold, furry bitter beer, murky appearance. Soft and a bit of soapy hop, but a fuzzy feel. Nice. A6 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.4

thanatosti (1074) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Tiel. Hazy golden with a white head. Citrus hops in the aroma with some weizen and Belgian yeast. Taste is a bit sweet but with enough hop bitterness to keep things interesting. Finish is semi-dry. Nice session ale and quite atypical.

TheFoamhead (158) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2015
This is a truely sparkling ale. In the best tradition of the Australian Coopers. Anice bitter note which is not dominating the taste, a green grassy side note and a hint of citric fruit. The body is a bit too light in my eyes, but it’s a nice summer ale with a descent alcohol percentage. Not too bad! Nice beer with even nicer looks. This one will be nice summer ’kompaan’!
