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.

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 (1203) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - 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.

mariuspoenari (703) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
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.
