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!

Ok beer. Not great. I had better from this brewer. The taste is mostly yeast, malt and sweetness. There is some herbs and a metallic element. Somehow it feels like it should have been a stronger heavier beer. It is not realy refreshing but also does not have real power.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Almost cloudy, golden colour with a mid-sized off-white foamy head. Yeasty, slightly sourish citrus-fruity aroma with delicately grainy malty accents and traces of vanilla. Slightly sweet-bitter, also delicately sour flavour, medium to light bodied with a modest carbonation. Dry-ish malt character with citrus fruity notes, traces of caramel, yeasty and slightly peppery spice; quite dry malt-accented finish with vaguely nutty notes and shades of citrus and grapefruit. Not an everyday darling but pleasant to drink. 08.IV.14

A slightly brown, yellow beer, a head is big and white. The nose is fruitfull and fresh, citrusfruits, fruitesters, apples, spices and some sourness. Taste is strongly fruitfull, lemon, lots of spices and also quite strong bitterness. Also the white part under the orange skin are found in the end. Medium bodied, high and sparkling carbonation that it OK even for me, that is enhancing the refreshness. Good beer, lots of spices, citrusfruits and even bitterness.

GSAP (546) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014
Licht pittig randje op koekjes en zoetzuur, wat ombuigt naar fijn bittertje in nasmaak. Aroma van bloemen en koekjes, met kruiden er doorheen verweven. Licht bruisend in de mond, kraak blijft op donkeroranje troebel.

Lore (1359) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 16, 2014
hazy dark orange colour, huge, though not too dense off-white head, which collapses within a few minutes; aroma of yeast, citruses, hints of caramel, earthy notes and hay; taste of yeast, minimal citrus, bread and caramel, sulphuric notes and spicy aftertaste; dry mouthfeel - really good belgian ale, I like it!

Good beer and taste. Lighter but not too light on the palate. Overall a good beer. A must buy when in Amsterdam!
