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

Faintly hazy pale gold with large fine bubbled lasting head. Very attractive fruit (peach & pineapple) cider hoppy soapy aroma. Medium smooth body. Unusual bitter then mellow sweet nectar flavoured start. Increasingly bitter middle and light woody yeast and bitter finish. They have quite wondorous things with the hops on this beer and can't understand why others have rated it quite so lowly.

Murky, heavily creamed coffee color with a thin dense head of white foam. Minute carbonation. Sassy aroma with tropical fruit mixing with musty yeast and pasty dough. Biting, crisp and sharp on the first sip with a mellow nature underneath. Notes of pineapple, kiwi and acidic melon atop a rich, doughy malt base. Yeasty sharpness is tangy and almost sour. Hop bitterness and flavor are not apparent. Remains crisp and sharp throughout, but never spritzy. Light bodied. Finishes thicker, awash in tropical fruitiness and with a yeasty zest. A handsome brew of such light stature.

Very blond beer. Milky if you pour everything. The aroma is hoppy, soapy and fruity. The taste is sweet hop with a yeasty bitter finish. The label, a purple flying bitch does look a bit cheap.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2003 Great aroma - pears, apples, citrus, sweet, light hops. Small off-white head over golden cloudy beer - almost luminescent. Medium fizzy with medium-heavy body, bit chalky from sediment. Alcohol. White wine flavor, grape, honey, citrus. Decent bitter end/finish. Champagne. Great tasting beer.

Bottle, 33 cl. Pale light yellow color, big white head. Aroma: sweetish of caramel and a good touch of hops. Taste this beer was long ago yesterday
(a great summer day) outdoor at "Bietje ter Doest" it was very refreshing.
A light drinkable beer ! Good brew.

Dobry blegijski Ale. Piana wiadomo, gigantyczna i bardzo trwala. Kolor jasny srednio metny. Slodowy smak z lekka nuta goryczki. Zbozowo slodowe glownie to piwo, delikatne i lekkie piwio, dosc nietypowy ciezar jak na Belgie.

Drinkable ale went down well with a clean malty flavor. Only draw back is that it is very yeasty.
