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)

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled from Mitra, Naarden. Golden colored, white head. Very spicy nose, perhaps some hops. Sweet and bitter flavor, again the spices. Hard to describe why in general i dislike these spring-beers so much, but it’s just not my kind of beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark blonde, yeast pours out in the glass, so it shows hazyness and the particles. Reasonable dense white head, fresh aroma, with apples, coriander, hops. Taste is slightly bitter, fizzling in the mouth. Again s fresh mouthfeeling, with oranges. Medium-bodied, with a bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden color with a creamy white head that laces and a lot of floaties. Aroma is of nice grapefruity hops with fruits and some sweet floral notes. Flavor is sweet and bitter in a nice balance. Slightly more bitter in the finish. Lingering floral flavors. Lively carbonation and a creamy texture. Nice brew.

bottle, kindly donated by Bierkoning - thank you! Hazy golden colour, large white head. Citrusy hoppy nose. Full-bodied, solid malty base with lots of citrusy hops, reminding me of good American IPAs.
