Brown yellow colored with murky appearance, vanishing yellow head. Lively carbonation. Lemony and caramelly aroma with nice touch of licorice, spiciness and some grainy note also present. Medium bodied. Flavor is also interesting with same licorice dominating, grains, lemon and some exotic fruits too, aftertaste turns to yeasty with some hops. Interesting brew.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 7, 2009
(33cl bottle, as Hofgrobberke 2007, Lentebier, 8.0% abv) Cloudy, orange colour with yeast flakes swimming around and a short white layer. Sweet bready malty aroma with strong spicy notes of ginger and pepper. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied, slightly fizzy carbonation. Malt-accented base yeasty and light-fruity taste with spices getting stronger towards the sweet and bready, also pretty alcoholic finish with shades of herbal hops. Imo not particularly rounded and a bit too spicy (07.IV.09).
