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.

Before my trip to Belgium this time I checked to see which fairly common beers I had not rated or reviewed. This is why I went into Cambrinus (Brugge) and ordered this, a Satan Red, a St Feuillien Triple and a Hercule Stout before anything else. Needless to say four different styles and types of beer: what fun drinking in Belgium can be. Anyway this was first: golden pour with a huge white head to wade through. The nose and taste are like a mixed fruit bowl that has been plunged into a bath of yeast, then had pepper dusted onto it before someone squirts lemon juice all over it. Now boil it and take out the lumpy bits, add some hops re-boil, allow it to settle in a bottle for a while and then it’s ready to drink. More please!

Draft at Max’s Belgian Beer Festival. Pours almost clear gold with a fizzy white head and some lacing. Tastes like light sweet sugar and ruby red grapefruit, with mild hops and very light bitterness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like yeast, sourness, and spoiled fruit.

Arome et gout fruité, épicé. Petite amertume. Une bière plus complèxe qu’il n’y parait. Très agréable.

@ Party Source / Bellvue KY (bottled 4/13) Nearly clear light amber with an out-of-control rocky white head, thick clumps of lace. Taste is sweet wheat malt with citrus and spice that grows as it enters the palate, giving way to a tart, lightly bittered finish. Full bodied without being over the top, extremely drinkable, pleasurable. Recommended.
