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.

Douberd (2288) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle of 300 ml, at home. Pours a deep golden honey-like slighty hazy coloured beer, with two fingers of white head with great retention. It has now settled to one finger but it’s still there, creamy. Leaves heavy lacing on the glass as I drink it. Aroma is fruity and yeasty.The coriander not traceable at all. Very bitter on the taste, this is great! The bitterness of the aftertaste lingers in the mouth for a long time, even longer if you take a good big sip. Full bodt, nice carbonation and some dryness on the palate, which serves to make you go for another sip. Overall a really great beer, and it may be called spring beer but I certainly would prefer it over the so-called summer beers.

On tap at ‘t Arendsnest, Amsterdam 2/6/2012. Golden in colour with a slight white head. Plenty of stone fruits, some citrus hops and a touch of honeyed sweetness before a dryish finish. Fine.

I’ve never been a giant fan of spring beers, they’re always excessively sweet, but this one is very decent. Some floral aromas and a sharp, not overwhelming sweetness, throughout. Nice balance.
