We made gold-fair, clear degustatiebier of 7,7°. it is of barley malt, leaven, water and of course Poperingse hops composed. What concerns the taste, is the first what the presence of a large hop bitterness is notable.

yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is dry cornish and slight grassy aroma. Dry malty and sweet caramelish flavoured. Light phenolic note too. Dry caramelish note. Smooth and malty into the far finish.

MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
Bottle, 7.2%. Refreshing aroma, almost as if there is a tiny hint of Brett in there. The flavour does not suggests so, though. Clear golden colour. Good stable white head. Hay flavour, a bit of grain sourness. OK, but nothing extraordinary.

nickd717 (4889) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Bottle at the Old Fiddle in Poperinge. Blond in color with a white head. Aroma of yeast, pale malt, and fresh hops. Flavor is more of the same, with a nice citrusy hop finish. Palate standard for the style. Not super exciting, but still good, especially in the town where it was brewed.

weaselkenievil (1609) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle. A run of the mill Belgian. The Darren Fletcher of Belgian Ale’s. Unfortunately, unlike Darren it’s not shown vast improvement. Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Sweaty socks and herby aroma. Little cardboard and metallic fruity flavour. Yeasty and malty finish. Boo.

Yves (3134) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2009
Clear goldblond coloured beer with small white head. Spicy hoppy aroma mixed with some yeasts. Full palate and bit sparkling. Finish is spicy ending bit dry. Good one.

2.8
harrisoni (19341) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle at The Palace Hotel, Poperinge. Blond, thick rocky off white head. It’s an ok slightly wheaty blond beer. Slightly cereally aroma, some citrus hop on finish. Minimal yeast character. It’s a pretty standard Belgian blond, with more wheat beer character and less estery yeast/spice. OK, if a little unexciting.

2.5
jerohen (2352) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2009
I-need-to-get-rid-of-those-mediocre-beers tasting session. Golden coloured, rapidly dying head. Malty nose, cardboard. Bland, somewhat bitter flavour, more bitter towards the end. Dry finish. Mediocre at best.

3.2
sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2009
(Bottled, 7.2% ABV) Sllightly hazy golden with a medium, bubbly and lacy head. Mild aroma of pale malt, some fruitiness, and light acidity. Hops come out in the dryish, fruity and mildly grassy-herby-bitter flavor - especially in the dry, slightly acidic finish. Not as plentiful and delicious as in the Hommelbier, though. Medium-bodied, slightly slicky palate with lowish carbonation. Easily drinkable and somewhat hoppy, but that’s about it. Anyway, if this manages to lure more women into less sweet and girly beers, it’s a good thing.

Brewed for the 2005 hops festival in Poperinge, they had so much left over that they bottled it. It’s very much like a less hoppy version of the Poperinge Hommelbier. Nice enough, easy to drink.
