With a virgin hopcone in the bottle! Probably the redemption of Gottems’ Blondje.

Bottle. Just got it before it gushed. Gold with a puffy white head that lasts OK. There’s a big bit of the hop cone left in the bottle and a fair few floaties in the glass. Aroma of dough, vanilla, peach, bitter orange. And so it tastes. It’s fruit and dough sweet and a bit muddled - I’m sure the hop detritus didn’t help - until it gathers itself in a dry and bitter finish that has some pepper and flowers as well as citrusy hops.

Echt wel een speciaal biertje, als je het opendoet komt er zeer veel schuim uit, want er zit ook een hop in. Zeer lekker trouwens.

Bottle from Hopduvel, Gent. Mine actually didn’t explode which was nice. Aware of it’s volatile nature, I left it in the fridge upright for a couple weeks before cracking it open. Appearance is typical Belgian blond. Quite an odd bitter metallic soapy orangey floral fragrant peppery Belgian blond with an entire hop in the bottle for some stupid reason. Managed to keep almost all chunks out of the pour though so pretty proud of myself.

Blonde non filtrée, non pasteurisée, refermentée, houblonnée en dry hop, et avec une fleur de houblon venant de Vlamertinge (entre Ypres et Poperinge) dans chaque bouteille, ce qui en fait en principe la seule bière au monde dont le dry hop se fait en bouteille aussi. Remarquable idée. Niveau abv de 6,5 % , pour un exemplaire un an avant sa date, c’est très bien ainsi. Couleur jaune abricoté, à l’important volume de matières en suspension. Bulles moyennes par centaines en fontaine centrale très vive. Mousse beige clair avec une belle texture ferme en haut, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt grillé, houblon, lie de vin blanc moelleux. 1ère bouche structurée, à la très belle entame malt/houblon, à l’équilibre. Arrière-bouche incisive sur la fleur de houblon. 2ème à la grande harmonie malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche bien précise et longue. 3ème avec une envolée sur des nuances houblon et fleur (de houblon …). Arrière-bouche complexe et longue. Longueur avec une belle exploration du houblon à terrain découvert … Jambes bien marquées, un peu collantes. Levure construite, digne, dense, très grande ligne. Alcool parfaitement progressif, et soutient magnifique de l’ensemble. Finale avec beauté, mais pas transcendance. CONCLUSION : grande bière du canard, avec cette offrande magnifique d’une fleur de houblon dans la bouteille. Nous aurions juste voulu planer avec la finale...

Bottle at home. It gushes, as stated, a sorry quantity in my sink, after evading the launched hopbell, but saved most nicely in my glass. It pours a mirky honeycolour, nice lively carbonation with an offwhite frothy head. It’s a treat on the nose with (grassy) hops, sweet malt, yeast, some floral tones, a definitive citrus/orange peel note, some caramel, and a funky background. Although the pearling carbonation shows big bubbles it has a nice soft, dry mouthfeel, and a soft carbonation geel too. A lovely bittersoft taste with hint of orangepeel, which gives also a light high sour citric edge to it all. There’s caramel, bready yeast, sweet malt too. Maybe it’s the "dry bottle hopping" as I will call it, but it has an interesting, well balanced hoppy, fruity taste, with sweet, sour and bitter in it. I will remember her defloration with fondness and respect, but can’t wait to meet het sisters! 😇

Bottle at home. I was prepared for this to be the mother of all gushers, imagine my surprise when it behaved like any other beer on the block when I opened the bottle. Aroma of malt, yeast, grassy hops, a hint of citrus, spicy notes, some floral, peppery notes. Flavour is medium bitter. Body is medium. Very nice hoppy Belgian Ale.

The hop flower doesn’t make for an easy pour. Lots of residue. Otherwise cloudy orange with a good foam top. Taste is orange peel, hops, bit of caramel but not too much, some earth. Starts pretty one sided bitter but has an excellently balanced bitter sweet finish
