Ruikt lekker zoet. Weinig schuim. Heel lekker zoetig bier, vrij licht. En nog goed voor de planeet ook toch?

30cl bottle at home, deeper golden pour with a white head. Grains, cut grass, herbal notes, citrus,small hint of Peach, malts. Pretty refreshing and enjoyable for a big brewery

The beer is perfectly golden clear. The layer of foam is minimal. A pity, I like a big creamy layer of foam. But of course, this isn’t the type of beer were you expect such a layer. The first impression is good. The beer is quite bitter. Luckily i haven’t eaten anything sweet, otherwise the bitternes would have been overwhelming. If you let the beer rol over your tongue, you taste a sweet little fruity flavor. It definitely taste’s like spring. And just like spring, where days blessed with sun are followed by rainy days, the bittersweetness is followed by a long and bitter finish. If you like bitterness, you can surely appreciate this beer. Luckily I do. This beer can truly be recommended. A nice product from the beautiful Dutch ground.

Sample pour of mild amber gold with white head. Nose is sweetness and mild caramel. Fully malted with little to no hop presence.

- Alcoholpercentage van 6,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Typical, unpasteurized Dutch spring bock, orange blonde in colour, with a caramelly and bit honeyish main character, fruity, soft, gentle and sweetish as any Dutch spring bock should be, finishing in an elegant hoppiness. Light and a bit frivolous, one of the better examples of the style, at least as far as the larger brands are concerned.

Bier met een zachte smaak. Mooi bouquette, mooie kleur maar smaak waar ik snel op uitkeek.

PotjeBier (1781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2014
Bottled, 2014 edition (I’ve had many editions in the past). Dark golden (towards amber) color, clear. Off white head, not much. Aroma’s of grain/malt, caramel, light fruit. Malty sweetness, grain, fowery retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty, with fresh hops. Medium bodied. Finishes with a delicate bitterness. Quite true to the style (= like a German Maibcok).

Easy drinkable beer. Nice that the brand is all biological, this beer is no exception. The taste is a little bitter and a bit like a weizen. A refreshing drink.
