Hopus 330ml, 8.3% - Belgium

This was reviewed as one of the best beers of 2008, so I definetaly had to give this a go. And of course for it's fancy pants bottle.

Poured into a Kronenburg 1664 glass, it's the closest I have to a Hopus glass. The foam is just amazing, two finger, cream white. Took quite some time to settle with lacing around, looks like a marshmallow floating in a glass. Now that's what I call quality.

Smell doesn't reflect any hops, although there should be five varieties of them. I smell yeast and no alcohol.

The taste is pretty good and it gets better after each sip. Citrus at first and ends with a tiny touch of bitterness. At 8.3% this doesn't taste alcohol at all.
