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 (3186) - 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.

Bottle@Home. Nice hoppy pale ale. More like and IPA than a normal Belgian Ale. Well done.

Cloudy dark golden colour with a white head. Very fresh citric and spicy aroma. Fruity, light citric and moderate sweet flavour. An unusual fresh and tasty dutch lentebier.

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.

Bottle at home. Yellow to orange to copper colour with a decent white head. Smells very hoppy, fresh, some grapefruit, pineapple, malts. Tastes bitter, ipa-like, hoppy, grapefruit, but also grassy, leaves and ’green’. Great carbo, medium body.

Clear orange amber beer with nice white head. Aroma is flowery hops, quiet nice. Taste is flowery hops with some underlying caramel malts. Best spring beer so far.
