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.

MelvinKalksma (874) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, grain, orange, hops and spices.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, yeast and orange; ends slightly/medium dry with grain and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Slightly too sweet and dry without many flavours to back this up; still amazing though.

In bottle. A very good surprise. I was reluctant to drink it, but its a good beer. Medium white head, not very fizzy. Strong coriander smell. Very sweet and oily tongue. I see it as a light Tripel Karmeliet

ALIBALI (539) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Aus der Flasche der Knaller (ca.2Euro/0,33l aus dem Braushop). Der helle Bock zuerst kaum erkennbar. Belgisch, hoppy kommt es daher und erst beim Trunk mischt sich die typische Se unter den extravaganten Trunk. Der Nachhall ist dann abgefahren. Intensiv, hoppy, tripelig und klar s. HEISS!!!!! Die beiden Male die ich es vom Hahn probiert habe waren nicht so intensiv, aber trotzdem solide (HET ELFDE GEBOD, Amsterdam 0,33l/4,80 und direkt im TIJ Brewpub 0,3/ca.2Euro)

jamestulloch (3375) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of bay leaf, lime chutney and yeast. Flavour of bread, honeyed malt and sweetcorn. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Interesting aroma but it tastes overly sweet.
