Ingredients: water, malt, pilsmalt, caramalt, wheat malt, oat flakes, granulated sugar. First wort hop: Nelson sauvin, bitter hop: Nelson Sauvin, aroma hop: Nelson Sauvin, dry hop: Nelson Sauvin. Yeast: Ringwood Ale. Lange tijd was dit bier een blond abdijbier van hoge gisting met nagisting op de fles en met een alcoholpercentage van 7,5%. We waren al enige tijd niet tevreden met onze Heukelomse Mie. Vooral de smaakontwikkeling na 12 maanden rijping of langer beviel ons niet. De hop verouderde te snel en het bier raakte in disbalans. We maakten nieuwe proefbrouwsels. We experimenteerden met nieuwe hopsoorten, met nieuwe mouten en zelfs met nieuwe gist. Het nieuwe recept bevat nu Nieuw-Zeelandse hop met de naam Nelson Sauvin, kent voornamelijk pilsmout en wordt vergist met een Engels gist te weten Ringwoord Ale. Het resultaat is een fris, fruitig, bloemig, citrusachtig en zacht bier met een mooie bitterige smaakontwikkeling en een alcoholpercentage van 6,2%. Zeker de moeite waard om dit bier te bestellen. We garanderen dat elke speciaal bierliefhebber zo’n bier nog nooit geproefd heeft en dat het in de smaak zal vallen. En uiteraard vanaf nu te bestellen via de‘winkel’ en het bestelformulier. Het bier is vernoemd naar een van de grote poppen van het lokaal reuzengilde. Heukelomse Mie was een potige waardin van cafe Mie Pieters. De reuzin ontleent daar haar naam aan en onze blonde dus ook.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. It pours a dense, finger-thick off-white to light beige head over a lightly hazy golden body. Very fruity on the nose, peaches, pine cones, some sugary notes and pale malts too. Effervescent on the palate, medium to full body, quite dry, althogh there’s some sweetness in the flavor. Nice bitternes too. Lasting finish with a pleasant bitterness and fruityness. A quite pleasant one indeed. 120622

tricksta_p (1658) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
Aroma of fruits, citrus, floral notes, yeast, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a nice medium bitterness in the aftertaste. Not the most complex but easily drinkable and refreshing.

(Reuzenbieren ReuZ Blond/Heukelomse Mie) As Reuz Blond, new label. Served into a big tulip, ABV 6.2% Pale golden yellow on the body, small white head. Good retention, light lacing left behind. Nice aroma, quite hoppy, light citrus, orange juice, light soap. Tastes good too, what you smell is what you get, plus some perfume. Nice bitterness on the finish, with good duration. Medium thin body, soft carbonation, quite dry on the palate. Nice surprise, I expected yet another yeasty belgian ale.

Taste: floral, peach, citrus, grains, honey (in an unobtrusive way), grass, herbs. Medium sweet, light-medium bitterness, soft creamy mouthfeel, nice bittersweet finish. Well balanced. This is a pretty good blonde.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Duvel glass: Snowy white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Looks good! Aroma is hoppy with herbs, grass, light apricot tone, some grapes, light hint of something sweet laying behind the herbal tone. Flavour is nice balanced bitter with hops, herbs, some light hoppy fruits, light citrus and tangerine touch, some grass, yeast, hint of crispy herbal malts. Nice stuff! Aftertaste is herbal, light fruity, nice bitterness., crispy stuff, I like it! Low carbo, light watery light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery texture. Very nice drinker, balanced, easy, good stuff, nothing exaggerated.

Bottle: Medium vast white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. The hop hits the nose when pouring this beer in it’s glass. Next to the dominant but not overpowering smell of the hops there are notes of citrus, pine and lemon. Smells good fresh. Taste lemon, hops, citrus, pine, pine apple, medium bitter, hint of yeast, nice spicy, some hints of light dryness and a slight slight hint of malt. Nice medium bitter fruity aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light creamy (bit blown) mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture. Fresh and fruity! Reminds me a bit of an IPA.

RW80 (1097) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
Apperance: olden beer, but a fizzy frothy unstable head, not much lacing Aroma: Nelson Sauvin,(Tyical white winey fruityness), yeast, light malts Taste: Liht sweet, Liht bitter, dry finish (Nelson Sauvin), liht spicyness provided by the yeast. Thin body, fizzy (over)carbonated. Carbonation is clearly off for the body, I hope this a one off, but with this level of carbonation it’s ruining the experience on multiple levels.

Sampled from bottle thanks to Ansjelaah. Gusher! Hazy murky yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, lightly some yeast, lightly orangepeel and a slight lemon touch. Pretty soft carbonation for a gusher, average body. Hmm better than expected.
