The youngest of the four beers was added to the collection in the 1990s. Just as abbeys tried to strengthen their communities by attracting new young monks, brewery Van Eecke introduced this blond Kapittel to answer the demand for paler beers in its home markets of Belgium, France and Spain. The blond has a surprising smooth finish and is easy to drink with its 6.5% alcohol by volume. The classic Van Eecke hoppyness is a nice and pleasant characteristic since the brewery is located in the last remaining hops region of Belgium. Surprising smooth finish. Nice and pleasant hoppyness.
