COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HELLEKAPELLE from Brouwerij de Bie is an unusual pale ale with a straw color, hoppy aroma, light to medium body and clean malty flavor. Its bitterness that starts in the middle of the palate and dominates through to the finish comes from Poperinge hops, wonderful thirst quencher.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2004
Straw colour. This is undoubtedly a hop-head's beer. Quite tart and refreshing. Cut effortlessly through the sweetish aftertaste left by all those dubbels and strong ales I had drunk earlier. Difficult to judge how it would shape up in isolation (I note that others have not been so impressed) but, in the circumstances, it was just about perfect. Bottled, Brugse Beertje, Bruges, September 2003.

Do Not Pour The Sediment!
Pours beautifully, gleaming golden body with a snow capped mountainous rocky white head. Because this brew looked so nice I did not swirl the mound of mucky brown sediment out of the bottle.
Aroma is tropical, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, guava; and not so tropical yeast. The flavor is not as Caribbean, still coming up with huge notes of fresh pineapple and yeast, then some straw / wheat, orange, dash of coriander. Damn for only 5% abv is beer is exceptionally warming on the way down. A nice spicy citric finish, overall a rather enjoyable Blond, but no Jessica Simpson!

skortila (5504) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2003
Spicy aroma, sweet with yeast and hops. Orange coloured; cloudy. Lasting white head. Taste is sweet, spicy, yeasty and fruity (citrus). Hopbitter in the end. Bit sticky. Good beer.

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Like beer-flavored seltzer water. Nice aroma, smells a little bit like kids' vitamins and dough. Lightly hoppy, yeasty, fizzy with light fruit. Terrible label. Somewhat unpleasant aftertaste -- clings to the sides of the back of the tongue.
