Previously from this brewery: Grimbergen Blonde and more Grimbergen Blonde
I'm once again at a point where I'm not even sure what day it is - I sincerely thought today was Monday. Good for me, weekend is one day closer. Bad for me, I really didn't know today was Tuesday.
Speaking of not knowing or remembering, I really don't even remember ordering today's beer, a bottle of Hapkin from Brouwerij Alken-Maes. Perhaps this was at the hotel in Diksmuide? The menu in the picture seems to suggest that, anyway. At some point, some of the things in my life do start running together. You know, days of the week.... beers I drank a month ago. Regardless, this one poured a clear blonde color with a thick, white head. There's a hoppy aroma, and when you take a sip you get a mellow, floral hop flavor. This one drinks dry, with a mild bitterness on the finish. It's fairly potent at 8.5% ABV, but I didn't notice a strong alcohol taste. I ordered it randomly, just to try something new, and it was a decent although apparently not memorable beer. They're also sort of owned by Heineken, but I didn't know that when I ordered it.
|There you have it.|
Without further ado or explanation, I give you Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie. Just because.
