tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam - Pours lightly hazy amber. It smells malt and some citrus. The flavor is sweet and fruity with a dry, mildly hopped finish. IPA? I’d not have guessed that. It’s a tasty brew, but doesn’t have the hop load I’d expect from the style.

Borresteijn (6491) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2009
On tap at Arendsnest as Rafael Lentebier. Slightly hazy amber colour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet, honey, malts, fruity and floral. Flavour is soft, honey sweetness, malty, light alcoholic, soft bitter finish. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium to fullbodied. This was more like a sweet heller bock than an IPA to me. Really good beer.

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2009
Tap @ Arendsnest. Light amber color. Tangerine and oily hops in the aroma. Light amber color. Firm oily flowery hopbitter flavor with tangerine and grapefruit. The influence of the use of American hops is noticeable. Clean and well built beer.

MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
Draught 7% as De Hemel Paasbier. Fresh, fruity, spicy, flowery aroma. Dark copper colour, very small white head. Very nice flavour, teaish hoppiness, some nice pepper/alcohol. Very malty and pleasant. The aftertaste is a bit short, but good.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2005
On tap @ de Hemel. They still haven’t got a real name for this brew, so it’s still ’Lentebok". Very Hemelish, with dark citrusfruits, cinnamon, ginger. Despite the characteristics still recognisable as a Maibock, but only just. Interesting brew, but somehow, the differences between all the Hemelbrews are not very large.
