COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ippopotamo36 (134) - ITALY - APR 28, 2014
In Leuven bottle. Pours vivid yellow, hazy with a huge white foam. Nose of citrus, lemon, Belgian yeast. Great taste: wit feel and grainy notes mixed with a perfect carbonation and a dry end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Helsdon (150) - Toronto, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
A 330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-golden with a three fingers off-white head. Wee bits of yeast sea-monkey-ing their way around in there. Nice nose of yeast, a fruity sweetness and a touch of booze. bready malts show up with cream, corn syrup (though not sweet). A good beer.

Zymurgeist2 (989) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 22, 2014
From bottle to glass. Earth and spice notes are dominate, with slight lemon and full yeast. Pours a hazy deep gold with lots of yeast in suspension. MASSIVE head implies over carbonated, and after it finally subsides, a lingering and beautiful pure white head remains. Taste is spice and biscuit malt with moderate low bitterness. Finishes semi-dry.

Ktwse (1975) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
Bottle purchased at Ølbutikken in May 2013, aged for a year in my cellar. Pours hazy golden amber with medium, thick white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, honey, light citrus, light coriander and herbs. Taste is modestly sweet with subtle balancing bitterness that builds towards the finish. Quite spicy as well. Creamy, rich body with soft carbonation.

SimonTja (250) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Yellow with a thick head. Smell is of caramel, bread, grassy & citrusy hops, and faint vinous notes. Taste is upfront of a vinous bitterness mix which changes to a more grassy floral hop flavour with a pretty solid malt background that is quite bready. Good, but for me not great at all, just not that enjoyable, and the taste is quite subtle, except the vinous notes.

Lothore (549) - California, USA - APR 6, 2014
A- Pours a hazy tangerine color with a large, chunky, ghost white head. S- Tangerine, light citrus fruit, orange juice, indistinct sweetness. T- Light tangerine/apricot up front that is overcome by a wave of hops that subsides into a light bitterness on the tongue. M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation. D- Decently drinkable beer. Somewhere in between a session beer and a sipper for me ... don’t necessarily know what occasion i’d recommend it for.

minutemat (1572) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy yellow with a great head. Awesome blond flavours on the slightly more sweeter side with more of a yeast presence alongside vibrant citrus and lemon. Great stuff.
