3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice golden color, bit thick and bit hazy with a slight foam head. Tastes a lot like Jopen Hoppenbeer (bitter, yeasty) but with a nice fruity add to it. Bitter and strong in taste. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Deep golden pour with a good white head. A lot of hops, citrus and koriander in the aroma. Was impressed by the taste. Tastes a lot like an IPA. Hoppy with a good bitter finish. Very nice springbeer!

A very nice beer for the spring, as the name suggests. Like a somewhat toned down IPA, with some sweet notes. On draft.

I have a hard time finding any special flavors. Malts in aroma and taste. Quite smooth and nice to drink but it just lacks something extra. Bottle from Daily Delis

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Jopenkerk, Haarlem on 4 April 2011. Pale gold. Moderate white head. Firm & quite hoppy. Some restrained spicy notes. Fairly tasty and clean. Unlike some of the other lentebiers I tried on this trip this one didn’t stray too far into sweet and sickly territory. Seemed more like a Belgian Ale in character which, perhaps, isn’t too surprising given the provenance. Will be interesting to see whether it changes as and when they start making it themselves.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange-brown body with small yet firm white head. Yeast floats around, but that’s okay. Mango, white bread, barnyard, ginger and lime. Oily texture with good alcohol backup. Quite mild taste and a bit watery but nice to fruity enough to enjoy. (33cl bottle, 1,85 EUR)

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Slightly hazy yellow colour. Sharp aroma of hop.Quite some hop in the flavour. It’s sharper than it is sweet. Very refreshing.
