Arabier is a pure malt beer brewed with flower Nugget-hops from Poperinge. It has the special dry-hopping taste and aroma, so appreciated by beer lovers all over the world. It is one of the two main beers from De Dolle Brouwers available throughout the year. Aging time is limited due to the fact that hop bitterness declines with age. Store arabier cool and dark and serve cool at 10°C.

Nice Belgian strong, tho hops didnt worked so well for me. Lovely huge maltiness, quite intense spicy, bit clean yeasty, some lemony hops with herbal impact. Moderate sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Tho in every aspect I can call this beer decent, but in overall picture something lacks and something feels too much

Blondachtig bier met een mooie gouden kleur en redelijke schuimkraag. Lekkere smaak bij eerste slok maar bier is erg hoppig en enorm bitter en dit blijft (te) lang hangen.

Pours a hazy light amber body with a thick head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Pointy taste with a clear bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zwaar blond bier. Veel bitter in de smaak. Dunne schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Lekker maar geen master-class !

leghorn99 (143) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 10, 2015
Un bel colore dorato molto carico, una vera e propria golden ale; una schiuma fine ed esuberante che crea le classiche tre dita di cappello sopra la birra, ingrigita impercettibilmente dal lievito nella sversatura. Aroma di luppolo floreale ed erbaceo, secco e amaro, che la caratterizza in lungo e in largo. Solo il lievito si inserisce in questo contesto, e contribuisce ad inserire un sentore speziato e piccante. In bocca si rivela equilibrata e di buona complessità, con il malto che apre e chiude una breve parentesi iniziale per poi lasciar campo a un robusto finale luppolato e astringente di zenzero e mela cotogna.

From XXXII. In La Trappe glass. Playing KB Dark Side. Another good brew from the de dolle. More soft than the other ive tasted and a bit less impressive, but good nonetheless

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Licht fruitige smaak voorin de mond, daarna bitter met na vijf seconden een erg droge bittere nasmaak in de keel. Niet slecht, maar ik hou toch meer van de iets frissere en/of zoetere bieren.

UXO (910) - CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Pours cloudy pale gold with lots of particulate on full white head, good retention and lacing. (3/5) Nose is complex: citrus, banana, floral, candi sugar, light earth and brett barnyard funk. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild funk. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly boozy and lingering brett bitter finish. (4/5) The appearance on this one is probably bad as a result of rough handling - the seal got broken during transport today, and half the bottle had spilled, but I figured I might as well salvage the remainder. An interesting combination of floral notes, presumably from the nugget hops, and earthy and brett notes. (15/20)
