Bottle. Pours mostly clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is spicy yeast, fruit and hops. The flavour is dry and light bretty with notes of fruit and citric hops. Dry hoppy finish. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little too bitter Belgian inspired ale. Feels light prune-like and strong.

330ml bottle, leftovers from Clutch tour. Pours golden yellow, big foamy head. Perfectly nice blond, not too flavoursome or hoppy and not getting as much bitterness as I was warned. Soft creamy texture, lightly sweet, and refreshing.

30cl bottle @ home from Melger’s, Haarlem. Slightly hazy golden yellow color, big creamy white head, goo lacing. Aroma fresh fruits, apple, caramel, quite hoppy. Taste light to medium sweetness, medium hoppy bitterness, slightly acidic. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, quite long bitter finish. Refreshing, good, simple, easy beer.

Nice appearance, very good aroma’s: sweet and a bit herbal. The taste adds a nice bitter touch. Fresh beer, easy to drink. Would certainly reccommend it!

GSAP (472) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2014
Aroma van meloen, blikje ananas en stro. Smaak gaat zoetig, maar ook kruidig verder, met bittere afloop. Alles begint fris en aangenaam, maar wordt wat donkerder naarmate het vordert. Voornamelijk de bitterheid met venijnige assmaak blijft hangen.

The beer wich started it al for this relatively young brewery. A golden hazy colour with a medium white head. Medium Carbonation. Malts and the typical Jopen Bitterness dominate this beer. There isn’t much else but for a slight citrus hint. Pretty nice beer, but when you’re used to the Jopen beers this one might get a little boring. A very nice beer.

Smell is light, sweet, yeast, pleasant enough. Taste is dry, bitter, but there’s a faint hint of soap somehow. It’s very high carbonated, bit to much. But I wanted a refreshing beer for today and it is quite refreshing, easy drinker.
