COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Until spring 2009 brewed by Huyghe for Jopen. Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Brewed with three grains: barley, oats and wheat, as requested in mediaeval Haarlem, fresh-bitterish hops and spicey coriander. Jopen Lentebier is unfiltered and gets a secondary fermentation in the bottle. A darker blonde beer with a fruity aroma and a fresh, fullbodied taste.

slightly hazy golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is minerally citrus with some spicy notes. Same spiciness in the flavor with some chalk like bitterness and oaty creaminess. Medium palate, refreshing and dry.

Tjeerd (124) - GERMANY - JUL 9, 2016
Nice aroma with coriander. Taste is fruity with coriander, little bitter. More like an IPA than a "normal" lente-beer. High ABV. Very enjoable.

Voor een lentebier vind ik deze te bitter. Neigt naar een ipa. Fruitigheid van het bier wordt door de wrange afdronk gemarkeerd. Zonde.

Oelbas (270) - DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Tåget orangegylden med holdbar, hvid skumtop. Duften er blomsteragtig med en antydning af citrus og koriander. Smagen er fyldig og blød med koriander og en lang bitter afslutning.

sample at Jopen, golden orange color. Notes of fruit yeast and grain. Lighter body. Nothing special about it but it’s drinkable

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2016
Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, hops and spices.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and spices.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The noticeable hops give that extra punch to this Belgian Ale.
