Efervescencia exagerada al servir, que se oye pero rápidamente se disipa. Color miel claro. El aroma es predominantemente floral y como el sabor complejo. En boca bien equilibrada con carbonatacion notable y cuerpo medio. Sabe a miel, piña, naranja y tiene un postgusto amargo. Merece la pena. kraddel (8861) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2015
Pours unclear blonde, small white head. Smell is weak, bit of the berries. Taste is sharp boozy, as well as some grains. Some malts, bitterness , and some jenever berries. PlutonowyMan (881) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2015
Piana drobno p?cherzykowa, do?? solidna, bia?a. Ca?kiem d?ugo utrzymuje si? na powierzchni,po pewnym czasie topnieje pozostawiaj?c tylko cienki film, nieznacznie brudz?cy szk?o.
Aromaty s?abe, mo?na doszuka? si? miodu, owoców - g?ównie mango z lekk? trawiast? nut?. Wszystkie te sk?adowe zapachu, jednak zbyt ma?o wyra?ne.
Smak niestety jeszcze s?abszy ni? aromat. Lekko kwaskowy, miodowy, s?odki i suchy - ziemisty. Goryczka na niskim poziomie, dupy nie urywa
i mo?e dobrze, bo Ne Kopstoot jest na równym kiepskim poziomie. Do tego jeszcze po prostu wodnisty. Iznogud (4312) - CROATIA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours unclear dark golden to orange with off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Fruity, yeasty and spicy flavor. Actually better than expected. Boxereddy (485) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2015
Goudblond bier met een dikke schuimkraag.
Bleke mout met citrustoets in de neus.
Zoetig en kruidig in de mond.
Bitterige afdronk met jenevertoets.

Dorée trouble, effervescence faible, col blanc moyen. Principalement maltée, céréales au nez, légèrement épicée, petite amertume, le genièvre se goûte un peu. Mouais... CharlyBeer (150) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2014
Manca di qualcosa: alla base non é male resta relativamente assente al naso come al palato. Alengrin (5711) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Tasted several times under its regular name Ne Kopstoot but now re-rating as Abbaye de St. Amand, which is apparently exactly the same beer. Slow gusher, but manageable. What remains, is a medium sized, dispersed yet stable (remaining closed), off-white, moussy head sitting on top of a lightly hazy ’old gold’ coloured beer with strings of tiny bubbles piercing through here and there. Aroma of juniper berries indeed, mixed with impressions of freshly cut apples, dried orange peel, lightly toasted bread, pink pepper, dried apricot, something thinly sulfuric (melting rubber - DMTS?), dried wormwood, peach, unripe gooseberry, fennel seed (probably just the juniper berries again), soggy sandwiches, green banana, unripe pear, fresh white pepper. Sweetish, fruity onset of pear, pineapple, peach and slight banana with a balancing unripe plum-like ’wryness’ positioned against it in a sharply carbonated, fizzy, somewhat numbing environment. Reasonably ’full’ and lean body coarsened by the overcarbonation, fruity remains here and there, while a strongish phenolic spiciness arises, likely a combination of actual spicy phenols with the slightly resinous, somewhat wry effect of the juniper berries, mingling with an earthy, spicy hop bitterishness in the end, lightly drying the palate in a (too) gentle way; alcohol remains well hidden. Resinous spiciness (even palpable on the tongue as something vaguely glue-like) and lingering malt juiciness remain after swallowing, while the hops provide some balance against the latter. I hate ’jenever’ and juniper berries to begin with so this was never ’my’ beer in the first place, but technically this is quite alright, I have to admit - especially in comparison with some other Brunehaut beers I had throughout the years. I guess you’ll have to like the resinous and somewhat wry spiciness of juniper berries but I sincerely do not (I have noticed young people pouring down blonde beer with a dash of ’jenever’ in it when I was a young adolescent of about fifteen years of age, tried it too, and hated it - and this combination of pale beer flavor with ’jenever’ flavor somehow got stuck into my mind as something abhorrent; this beer subtly but surely reminds me of that). Never again, for me at least, but I try not to let personal taste preferences interfere and for what it intends to be, this is not badly executed. Bricks (1149) - Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Honey brown medium appearance. Aroma of juniper berries, bread, malt and some metallic notes. Taste of funk and bready malt.. maybe some yeast.. more funk than I would like. Odd, bitter aftertaste.
