COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our bokbier for Easter; not too sweet, thereby producing a fine flavour. The flavour and aromas give a nicely balanced mix of fruit, coriander, yeast and hops. An enjoyable combination in which the bitter element gets an additional boost from the lightly roasted malt. The aftertaste is slightly sparkling, with a long-lasting, fresh, sweet flavour. An excellent beer for celebrating the arrival of spring!

330ml bottle at Caf van Daele, Amsterdam:
This one wasnt a bad effort from t IJ although I didnt enjoy it anywhere near as much as I did their Zatte tripel. This one had quite an unusual aroma that I couldnt quite place at times but the taste wasnt a bad one at all & overall the balance of the beer was pleasant with some bitterness at the end to counter the sweetness that featured throughout. An easy enough beer to drink & one that Im glad I tried, particularly as its a spring seasonal but Im not sure its one that Id pick again.

Colour: Bright gold. Medium to thin white head. Nose: Wheat, lemon zest, herbs. Hints of vanilla and citrus. Flavours: Fresh, lemon, vanilla, herbs, grains, biscuits. Finish: Medium long and thirst-quenching. Verdict: One of the finest Lentebock beers of 2015

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur.Biere.com. Pours hazy orange with decent white head. Aroma brings sweet spice. Taste is similar with lots of sweet sherbetty flavours, candi sugar, bright fruit and a nice sparkle. Nice.

Slightly hazy orange with a dense, creamy head. Tangy taste with very slight bitterness. Aroma is typical blonde. Overly carbonated.

heman (153) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 8, 2015
Barwa to głębokie złoto, piana obfita, długo utrzymuje się cieniutką warstwą. Aromat to mieszanka ziołowo-przyprawowych drożdży i intensywnej kolendry. Piwo jest lekko słodkie, a pierwsze skrzypce graja słody. Gdzieś tam po chwili pojawia się kolendra i lekkie posmaki żłtych owocw, coś jak morele i mirabelki. Finisz to zaskakująco mocna i dość długo zostająca na podniebieniu ziołowo-drożdżowa goryczka, troszkę tępa w posmaku. Alkohol jest dobrze ukryty.

TtV (205) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Yellow amber coloured with a small white head that fades quickly. Little Co2. Aroma not very explicit. Malts and yeast, but only hints. The taste is much like blonde beer: a mild sweetness and an even milder bitterness. Not bad, but nothing special.

Mooie oranje kleur in het glas. Schuimkraag verdwijnt helaas gelijk. Het bier is lekker fris, smaak blijft lang hangen.

rosenbergh (8285) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
330 ml bottle. #010. THT 02/2015. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. Belgian yeast, mild sweetness, citrus, malt and some play doh... in the aroma I mean. The flavour is bready malt, yeast, mild bitterness, citrus and some mild alcohol. Najaa...

Unclear orange colored beer with a good white head. Taste is yeast, nice bitter hops and sweet fruit. Good balance, nice.
