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 didnít stray too far into sweet and sickly territory. Seemed more like a Belgian Ale in character which, perhaps, isnít too surprising given the provenance. Will be interesting to see whether it changes as and when they start making it themselves.

Hazy orange-brown body with small yet firm white head. Yeast floats around, but thatís 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)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2011 Golden with white foamy head.
Aroma of citrus, coriander seeds, yeast and hops. Fruit tones and malts.
Fresh taste, some sweets but not too much, orange, spices, malts. Wheat. Nice hoppy tone. Balanced. Nice beer to celebrate spring.
(from 33cL bottle)
Update: 26-4-2011, from tap:
Mostly the same qualities as the bottled version. Aroma more malty, less coriander. Flavour more liquorice and more pronounced bitter hops. Dryer, but this could also be age (residual sugars of the bottling might be more fermented)
