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!

androman (1843) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange copper color medium creamy beige head. Aroma floral, honey, citrus, belgian yeast, slightly roasty, licorice notes. Taste medium sweetness, medium bitterness, light umami. Medium to full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, belgian style bitter-sweet finish, bitterness stays longer in the palate. Good, refreshing, smells really good, but still not very exciting, and far not the best from ít IJ.

laiti (8081) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
33 cl bottle @ HBF í14
Aroma has lots of soapy citrus. Also some distant belgian yeast notes. Flavour has also soapy citrus, some earthy notes. A basic soapy belgian ale with ít IJ house flavour added. Dry and leathery finish. Refreshing.
