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.

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

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, hops and spices.

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

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

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

GSAP (698) - NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2016
Fijne lichte kruidentonen, wat suiker-citroen snoepje en sinaasappel, met een beetje witte schil in nasmaak. Verfrissend. Aroma is wat zoeter van suiker met koriander, maar staat wel, niet zo weeïg als andere lentebier.

Dit is een tripelachtig, saisonachtig bier met fruitige en bloesemtonen. In het palet zitten honing, hop, koriander en sinaasappel. Erg verfrissend.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Oranje geel... Prachtige kleur. Troebel en weinig koolzuur. Mooie witte schuimkraag hiervan blijft er een mooi laagje langs het glas. Hoppig en fruitige aroma. Ook wat citrustonen. Smaak is zoet en moutig... brood en boterachtig. Een goede hopbitter die wel even blijft. Heeft een IPA tintje. Redelijk mondgevoel...zeker niet waterig. Lekker om van te genieten in het beginnende zonnetje.

Das Jopen Lente ist mit Gerste, Hafer, Koriander und amerikanischen Hopfen gebraut. Farbe: Helles Bernstein, leicht opal mit cremigem weißem Schaum. Das Bier ist malzig, leicht süß, aber vor allem fruchtig frisch. Dazu hefig und etwas brotig. Im Abgang dann angenehm bitter und trocken. Gutes eigenständiges Bier, welches am ehesten mit einem belgischen Blond vergleichbar ist.

Zlotta (2258) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’, bottled in January 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, stable, white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy and slightly floral aroma of grains, straw, some citrus and honey. Sweetish-malty, fruity-grassy and slightly floral taste of grains, citrus, honey, some caramel and straw, followed by a medium long, grassy, medium biter finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Simple but nice and refreshing brew from Jopen again.

33cl bottle. Pours a briight yellow, with a white head. Smells sweet, like a Belgian ale, candi sugar, caramel, yeast, bread. The taste follows the same notes (I wonder where the "usa hopped" notes are), very nicely balanced, not too sweet for a Belgian pale ale.
