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!

fkoolen (810) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Hazy orange colour with a slightly off-white head. Aromas a bit too thin, but along with the taste oranges, pineapple, apple and hoppy and malty bitterness are distinguishable. As it warms it gets more sweet (honey). Lively mouthfeel, medium-high carbonated, not too big bodied. Refreshing and balanced but flavourwise not too special.

Bosskie (688) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Opaque copper orange beer with a generous head and little carbonation. Peaches, mandarin , breadiness on the nose, with some bitter alcoholic woodiness which Ive come to associate with biological beer. t Ij pulls it off nicely thou. Good balance of bitter and watery, refreshing. Full-bodied and nicely fizzy with hints of honey, caramel and some alcohol. Quite a nice beer.

Bosbouw (2465) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2014
Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop en iets zoet. Smaakt iets bitter verder vind ik hem wat aan de zoete kant.

Pours a golden orange, a little unclear, with a full, offwhite head. Sweet aroma of honey, apple and bread. Nice taste with a little toffee, some sweetness and a good bitter. Easily drinkable. I like this.

Zoals het t IJ betaamd. Een fris lentebiertje met n vleugje trippel en n hint naar de zomer
