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.

On tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. It was named Jopen Lente Hop, I hope itís the same beer. Grassy and hoppy smell. Similar taste. Nice bitterness. Very hoppy, spicy and grassy. Nice beer.

Fresh, hoppy, grassy taste and smell. Perfect for a spring beer. Long, bitter - and still hoppy, aftertaste.Love it.

On tap at the klimmuur Haarlem. Slightly sour, should be fresh but doesn't taste right. Nice medium bodied bitterness as a contrast. Hops seemed old and subdued. Could be really good… ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very fruity aroma and good firm foam. Very cloudy beer with flakes floating around. Taste is rather bitter and not that good for this type of beers. I have had better.

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2013
300ml bottle. Filmy golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and slightly yeasty aroma, some husk. Taste is initially minimally sweet pale malty, later dry husky, in the finish bitter hoppy, underlying hints of alcohol.

worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - APR 28, 2013
They call it a Belgian Ale but if so hoppy that it leans towards IPA. Somewhere between, gold and orange with a nice thick, hugs the glass, lasting foamy white head. Some light floaties. Smells of lemon citrus, toasted malt, and a fruity yeast mixed with coriander. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Very fruity sweet at first with malt and then moves to a medium bitter hoppy citrus peppery dry finish. From fruity to citrus with soft spices. A great beer to easily enjoy.

Somewhat jazzy golden yellow with lasting, lacing foam head. Aroma is quite hoppy, so is taste. Nice aftertaste. (Haarlem 201304) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
