In the early days this was the last beer to be brewed before the warm summer season. It had an increased alcohol percentage so it would last longer.

Pours rather clear , bit darker blonde. Smal white head. Smell is spiced, rather bitter, some sweetness. Taste is yoghurty, yeast, bit bitter, harsh, industrial sidenote. Spiced. Not too great

Bottle. Nice orange goldish color. Thick white head. Taste sweet, yeast, hints of herbs, citrus. Too superficial.

Fast gpne white head over rather big-bubbled orangeish golden beer, clear. Spices’ nose. Not intense, but a tad oppressive. Sweetish spices, and faintly peppery too, ginger even. Bitterish, first, and spicy (ginger springs too mind again); then toasted malts, getting sweeter . Finally the carbonation takes over. As it feels like sodawater with a spicy beertaste, that falls away, this seems to want to be a new kind of alcoholic rootbeer, it would seem. Ultra watery finish, high gravity brewing went too far??

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, corn syrup, Belgian yeast, fruit and grain.

Clear golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, corn syrup, Belgian yeast and fruit; ends slightly dry with grain.

An easy and a refreshing beer with a good yeast flavour. Would have loved more different flavours in the beer though.

.3l bottle, sweet and fresh citrus aroma. Low carbonation. Tastes sweet, good beer to drink out in the sun.

Bijl (271) - NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2016
Goudgeel, helder, witte matige 2 vinger hoge schuimkraag die snel weg is. Bubblegum aroma en moutig met wat fruitige tonen. Niet veel koolzuur. Smaak is wat zurig.. Cider achtig met een flinke suikerzoet. Bitter bijna niet. Drinkt makkelijk weg voir 7,2%. Redelijk vol qua mondgevoel. Zoet en plakkerig in de afdronk. Simpel pilsje maar wel OK.

Fruitig, typische Hertog Jan smaak (speciaal gist?). Aroma / smaak blijft hangen als 1 smaak, komt niet veel meer in voor. Beetje boter smaak. Komt geen bitter doorheen.

Sweet malt aroma. Small head, clear amber color. Sweet taste, with little bitterness. Not enough carbonation, and thin body.
