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!

jmgreenuk (4350) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from the Bierkoning. Poured a hazy light amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, big citrus fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter, light sweet with a fresh, crisp citrus fruit, orange peel, light spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
Very huge, dense yellowish head, very slowly collapsing over very hazy orange-amber beer. Bit oppressive, sweet-milky smell, superimposed by a raw hoppy aroma, as from wild hops. Warming up, the coriander makes itself known. Corianderbomb. Spicy, lightly peppery, dried herbs (and hops) and fake citrus. Thick, slick MF, slightly burning feel; traces of alcohol. In fact, I loathe this.

jookos (2149) - FINLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. Yellow hazy. Belgy yeasty, some corny popcorny malts, bit of citrus, belgy yeasty. Fullish med body, nice texture. Dries off the tongue, but has pale sweetness. Good pale malts, just a hint of greeny continental hops. Pretty nice balanced belgian ale.

pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, small and stable white head; almost solid yeasty-fruity and caramelly nose with slight hoppy traces; robust sweet-bitter, including a little tartness, medium bodied; traces of alcohol in the sweetish-fruity and yeasty finish, increasing hoppiness in the aftertaste. Good…

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.
