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.

Boxereddy (476) - BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2016
Helder goudkleurig bier met veel rondzwevend gist sediment en mooie, grote, donzige gebroken witteschuimkraag. Aroma: fleurig met wat overrijpe vruchten, hooi en middelgrote bruine suiker. Smaak: begint zoetig met bruine suiker, hooi, lichte karamel en gist, maar krijgt echt bitter en aards over de finish. Mondgevoel is gemiddeld met een goede hoeveelheid koolzuur.

Bottle split with Niller, sourced from Toft Vin, Copenhagen - pours gold with a big off-white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, some dried fruit, caramel sweetness, brown sugar, yeasty, medium to high carbonation, medium sweet into the finish. Nice drop.

martin00sr (2752) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 22, 2016
Clear golden, airy white head. Malty aroma, honey, wood and tobacco, floral yeasty notes. Flavour is fruity, slightly rough, floral bitterness (?!). Honey-like sweetness, hoppy bitterness. Alcoholic and rather light. Quite complex and very well balanced.

ciocanelu (1324) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 4, 2016
Clear, dark golden color with lots of yeast sediment floating around, huge, fluffy off-white head. Aroma has classic belgian yeast esters. Floral with some overripe fruits, hay and medium brown sugar. Taste starts on the sweet side with brown sugar, hay, slight caramel and yeast but gets really bitter and earthy on the finish. Seems more like a belgian IPA to me. After the the foam settles, you get some earthy hops as well in the aroma and taste but mostly the bitterness. Medium, soft body with a good amount of carbonation. ABV is hidden very well, making the beer really drinkable for 8%. An excellent example of a well made belgian pale ale.

ForlornHope (408) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle at home. Lively pour, leaving a golden beer with a massive, rocky white head. The aroma is like a huge IPA, with rich peppery hop and malt. Sweet to start with a huge bitterness to follow. Slightly sugary sappy malt with good balancing bitter, peppery hop. Rich and smooth. Delicious.

33 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich golden colour with a massive white head. Aroma is of earthy, peppery hop and rich grain. Taste is firmly bitter with a good, balancing background of mellow sweetness. Rich on the palate, well carbonated, the finish is dry and bitter. A truly great beer.

Garrold (4250) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle, direct from the brewery, via a friend. Hazy gold, with a few floaters. Big, bubbly, expanding, off white head. Nose has a nutty, grainy, sweet maltiness. Floral, fruity, pungent hop. Soft, fruity esters. Taste is fruity bitter. Soft, floral sweetness. Lovely, soft, foamy mouthfeel. Great depth. More of the pungent hop bitterness on the finish. Lovely beer. Super drinkable.

From a bottle. Thick foamy white head. Smell alcohol, grain, malt, sweet. Taste is a full sweet, malty with a dry kinda bitter finish. Great beer, a must taste.
