On tap at Cafe de Koningshut, Amsterdam.
Cloudy brown with steady white collar that has a rose tint.
Musty yeast and lemon floor polish nose.
Apple and brown sugar, earthy hit, and grass and cut hay hops.
Big lemon zest finish and bubble gum linger.
Lt-med, round, some cling.
Dark and thick for a spring bock; I could have said dunkel of some variety. (Not sure how many Dutch lentebocks I've had to compare.) No fizz, yeast is low, hops are bigger than I'd expect. A different take on spring beer.

Texels calls this a lentebock, so we're going with maibock. On-tap at Cafe Biljart in Alkmaar, on to the beer:
It's colored rub orange and topped with a creamy inch of head. Sticking with a theme, it leaves creamy lace around the glass as the beer's level drops. It has the smell of flowers and sugar coated citrus. A few more notes are found in the beer's taste compared its aroma. Starting the parade is lemongrass. Floral follows. Fruity, yeasty, and bready notes make cameo's. A nice enough overall flavor, which sometimes becomes a bit much. Its medium-full bodied and somewhat syrupy, yet somehow maintains a smooth textrue.
It's an acceptable spring beer. Given how cold and wet Alkmaar was, I may have picked an appropriate beer to warm up with.
