33cl bottle. Clear amber pour, with a thin white head. Smells like boiled malts and a very small amount of bitter hops. The taste follows the same notes, overly sweet, with a bit of metallic bitterness.

Pours a light brown with a full frothy head that lingers and laces the glass. It smell of light malts but has a tartness to it. It tastes of malts with a lot of fruitiness but has a slightly sour note to it. It has a nice full mouth but the aftertaste lingers of sour. Not one of my favorites I won't be trying another soon.

Color and head are both beautiful. Copperish color with a nice fat foamy head (about 2 fingers). Smell: nothing too special, just what one would expect in a Bock. Taste is surprisingly fresh, with a nice bit of sour and sweet, just like Bock should be. Pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Hele mooie kleur. Iets te zware smaak voor een frisse lentebok

Orange hazy colour with a modest head of foam. Fresh spring smell of grass, tangerine and malt. The taste is more robust, with flavours of caramel and malt. A bottom fermented spring bock with a nice amount of flavour in both smell and taste. Probably not as refreshing as a spring bock is supposed to be (i guess that's why it's classified as a regular Bock on BA), but all in all definitely worth a try.

Appearance: Copper color, good 2 finger white firm foam.

Smell: Malts, bit of sweetness, but mainly a bit of a sour undertone.

Taste: Full bodied taste for a lentebock (Springbock). Some sweet and sour combo malts going on. Hard to define real tastes because the sour is just overpowering. It's a bit like caramel, with a sour undertone followed by a bitter. Has a long aftertaste, but thick feeling and mainly sour.

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation. Quite thick for a Lentebock. Doesn't have that refreshing feel.

Overall: Not the best of Gulpener's. It lacks the freshness a Lentebock should have. It also lacks balance and the sour is ruining it for me. I enjoyed the Leffe's one more.

Bottle of 300 ml, another one on my series of spring bocks.

This one has a deep copper colour, with a two finger head, kind of soapy but with very good retention. Minimal activity in the glass.
Distreer aroma of hops. Taste is sweet, refreshing, some caramel in it.On the palate comes with medium thickness and slighty too carbonated.
Overall a great spring bock!

Tasting this one blind. Nice white head and a orange/cupper beercolor. Nose is lots of 4-vinylguiacol and very spicy& sweet. Somehow not what you expect from a lentebok witch I think should be fruity and fresh. Taste is also spicy, just litle sweet and quiet bitter for a dutch beer. Mouthfeel is good but drinkability suffers under the spicyness witch you just don't expect in a springbock.
