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.

Una birra intrigante, complessa e rinfrescante. Luppolata, leggermente fruttata, con una sfumatura speziata di coriandolo che potrebbe ricordare una blanche, buon amaro complessivo.

Somewhat cloudy, orangecolored beer. It has a fruity, sweet aroma with resembles peaches. This can also be tasted, along with something spicy, but this moves on into a bitter aftertaste that holds on for quite a while. Nice fresh beer! Ietwat troebel, oranjekleurig bier. Het aroma is fruitig zoet, met de toets van perzik. Het zoetige gaat door in de smaak, samen met iets kruidigs. Dit gaat over in een vrij bittere nasmaak die aardig aanhoud. Lekker fris bier!

Nice mix between a blond beer, witbier and a belles bock. It’s grainy, mildly hoppy and fresh.

Golden with white, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is grassy and hoppy. Flavor is sweet with a tad sour. It is somewhat refreshing and grassy, hoppy, spicy with a (long) bitter finish.

Cerveze_ando (4) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013 does not count
Bottle from supermarket. Very nice golden colour, semitransparent body and white foam. About the flavour, very refreshing. Nice light blondie, but you can get some hop, coriander, fresh grass... Very good beer also if we keep the price in mind.

On tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. It was named Jopen Lente Hop, I hope it’s the same beer. Grassy and hoppy smell. Similar taste. Nice bitterness. Very hoppy, spicy and grassy. Nice beer.
