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.

Grima (2164) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2012
Pours a light amber colored beer with a beautiful fine-pored head. The smell is very grainy, very sweet and subtle hoppy. Starts with lots of malt flavor, well-balanced bitter-sweet, very fruity, tart and again very grainy. The middle part shows slightly musty-malty and fruity and hoppy. In the finish the beer is stale-hoppy, very yeasty and fermented-fruity

Chunky light amber colored pour. Small white head that is just a few bubbles on top. No lacing. Fruity aroma with alcohol. Sweet taste. A little bitterness. Not too bad.

MMR (452) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2011
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.

spkevin (397) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2011
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
