From my notes: Had this one on tap at the vlaamse reus.
Look: The beer pours a clear yellow-golden color with a nice fluffy white head.
Smell: Yeast, malts, floral and herbal hops, some hints of clove
Taste: Malts, herbal hops again. This beer is not sweet, like most other lente bok beers. The aftertaste is nicely bitter with longlasting dryness.
Mouthfeel: High carbonation, light bodied.
Overall: Not as sweet as most others in the style. Nice and refreshing

Had on tap, recommended by the bartender at In De Wildeman. Served up in a Budels Meibock glass. Only cost 3 euros.

It's clear deep yellow/gold, with a billowy white foamy head that gradually fades. It's got some real legs.

Nose is fresh farm hay, some light malts and wild yeasts.

Taste is simple malts, slight fruit hints, and mild saaz hops on the end. Good to style.

Mouthfeel is good, drinkability is pretty high. Overall a decent beer.

Recommended by an employee at the Cracked Kettle (Beer Store in Amsterdam)

Poured from a 30cl bottle into a glass.

Rich gold color easy to see the carbonation.

The smell is floral, and maybe some clove.

The taste is slightly floral and very leathery not sweet at all like the Lente Boks (spring brew). The finish is bitter but clean.

The drinkability of this beer is great!

Should have bought more than one bottle.
