COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vikking, een bier met ballen. Heel lang geleden ving een Hammenaar een Vlaamse gaai en leerde hem klappen (praten). Jaren later kwam deze wuiten in handen van een schipper die hem voor minder dan een schijntje gekocht had doch de vogel weigerde te praten tot de dag dat het schip vanuit de Schelde de Durme opvoer en onze gevleugelde vriend begon te roepen "kwek,kwek,’k ein Ham gezien!!!!!!". Deze vogel leidde de schipper naar de kant alwaar een kist met aloude Vikkingdocumenten waaronder het recept van een bier met ballen.

stoffelke (54) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2017
Bottle 33cl from Willems. Nice hazy golden color with a big white head. Nose is very hoppy with hints of honey and citrus. Medium carbonation. Strong fresh hoppy flavour combined with sugar/honey flavour. The ending is very bitter but more harsh and metallic like bitterness.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruits, some glue, alcohol and mild wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, wooden, some floral notes as well as some caramel. A bit too alcoholic for it’s own best, but otherwise quite ok.

The triple you’ve had way too many times before. Clear golden with a huge white head,to the point of almost being a gusher. Smells like coriander and tastes pretty much like it too. Overly sweet, overly yeasty, overly herbal and too much carbo. Probably doesn’t do too much wrong if you’re into those kind of triples. Probably isn’t even a bad triple tbh. The herbs are just too much for me.

Zeer lekker geurtje. Mooie blonde kleur. En de smaak is ook goed. Geen topper maar wel een heel goed blond biertje.

Mooi goudblond troebel biertje met romige witte schuimkraag. Bloemig en fruitig aroma. Lekker vol en romig van smaak met hoppige afdronk. Goed doordrinkbaar. Alweer prima biertje van Boelens.

Hamirubi (595) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2015
33cl bottle at home (21 VIII 2015). Orange, dirt to brown coloured beer with thin, little white foam. The flavours have something very fresh, some oranges or lime and lemon. There should be some cinnamon in there too, but I could not pick that up. The taste has less pleasant dirt and dust aromas, yet they are rather mild (a good thing!). The malt and bitterness are lovely, there is a lingering sugarness-sourness too - but oh so subtle -, it has a fruity vibe too and the alcohol is warming. A decent, nice, modest brew.

3.3
Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
Commissioned brew since 2010 referring to an old legend centred around an inhabitant of the village of Hamme. Yellowish white, rocky, sticky head, deep peach blonde colour with somewhat brownish hue, cloudy and even more so after adding the deposit, which in this case consisted of an ominous dark ’stuff’ on the bottom of the bottle. Strong yeasty and estery aroma, banana, pear, canned apricot, bread dough, ginger, cider, grass. Soft mouthfeel, rounded, fruity and very estery-yeasty with citrus touch, mellow caramelly maltiness, relatively soft carbo in relation to the head formation, a bit earthy in the end with a leafy, briefly sharpish hop bitterness and a bourbon-like warming alcohol effect. I am getting used to Boelens producing ’soup’, in the sense that some of his beers are infected and clouded after even the most careful of pouring, but in this case that didn’t bother me, this is quite a tasteful ale.

kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours very hazy dark golden with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of Brett, citrus, fruits and malt (infection? But not really in a bad way). Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter and acidic. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

3.1
