One of the best spring beers you can get. Long aftertaste with a lot of freshness and some hops

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
They call it a Belgian Ale but if so hoppy that it leans towards IPA. Somewhere between, gold and orange with a nice thick, hugs the glass, lasting foamy white head. Some light floaties. Smells of lemon citrus, toasted malt, and a fruity yeast mixed with coriander. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Very fruity sweet at first with malt and then moves to a medium bitter hoppy citrus peppery dry finish. From fruity to citrus with soft spices. A great beer to easily enjoy.

A very nice beer for the spring, as the name suggests. Like a somewhat toned down IPA, with some sweet notes. On draft.

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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This springbeer has a very strong aroma of coreanderseed. Maybe a bit to strong, because the first impression is not that positive. After a carefull first sip that impresion changes; the taste is very nice. The full flavour is a mix between sweet maltynes and spicy flavours. It maight be overwhelming in taste and aroma but it is a very unique beer that I would like to drink more often.

Hazy orange-darkgolden color, with good offwhite head.

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.
