Jopen Hoppenbier (300ml Bottle)
Until the end of 2008 brewed by Huyghe. Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Jopen Hoppenbier is a double hopped three grains beer. This blond beer contains 6.8% alcohol and is replicated from the city recipe of 1501. Jopen Hoppenbier is a refreshing beer with a light malty start and a long bitter aftertaste. It has been brewed since 1994 from barleymalt, (unmalted) oats, wheatmalt and Saaz and Brewers Gold hops.
Belgian-style ales seldom fit neatly into classic beer styles, but this category represents those "session" ales (in Belgium this means under 7% abv!) that do not fit other categories. Colour ranges from golden to deep amber, with the occasional example coming in darker. Body tends to be light to medium, with a wide range of hop and malt levels. Yeastiness and acidity may also be present.
