Labeled as Haarlem 1501 for the US market. Best by 12/3/17.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny partilcles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, floral, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice citrus forward hop qualities that I wasn't expecting from this one.

Serving type: bottle.

On tap at Jopenkerk in Haarlem. Definitely PA but not so much of the I. I'd take this again but the Mooie Nel would be preferred.

Hazy orange colour with a ring of white head and some lace. Smell is grainy and fruity, some floral leafy hop as well but as a whole is a bit bland. Taste is a mix of earth and malty, ready with light floral/earthy hops, just a touch of alcohol. Medium light carbonation, medium bodied. OK but forgettable, I suppose I could order this again if left with not many options.

Pours hazy golden beer with a ring of white froth and sediment. Smell isn't intense, fruity esters. Taste is better, round, spicy, pale malts, fruity esters and nice lemony bitter finish. Light body, good carbonation.
