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.

Tenemos que darle otra oportunidad, pero en la primera impresión no nos ha gustado. De aroma lavándico y ácido, frutal, achampanada, especiada, demasiado gas, deja la boca amarga aunque al principio es dulce también

White foamy head. Aroma of hops, yeast and koriander. Taste is a bit bitter (in a nice IPA kinda way) also a bit of lemon/lime or orange peel. Flavours of koriander, hoppy and far away is some orange sweetness.

Trappist1 (361) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2013
Clear golden, huge fluffy white head. a lot of yeast in the nose, spices, bit peppery (white pepper), hints of gras, metallic touch. taste gives a distinct yeast flavour, biscuits, slightly spicy, some herbs in the back. the beer has a round palate, bit sparkling, refreshing brew with a bitter finish. this is a great beer, only something slightly less appealing in the nose.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer & Beyond Store. Thanks beerandbeyond for the bottle! Hazy yellow golden with a big, white head. Sweet, dried apricot aroma, apricot in the mouth, then very bitter. Apricot aftertaste, medium-to-full body, carbonated.

Tons of flavour. This really stands out among its kind. The first sip stings, but everything smooths down as you approach the bottom.

Steve_0 (2234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle at the parentals. Pour is hazy yellow orange with a huge white head and great lacing. Funky, musty, phenolic, peppery, spicy hoppy, grassy, doughy, lemony, and biscuity aroma. Taste is lemon peel, biscuity, fresh cut grass, bread, minerally, white pepper, basil, and orange with a lightly spicy bitter finish. Medium body with medium-to-soft carbonation. Really nice stuff and reminds me of a very phenolic saison.

Renobob (453) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 23, 2013
Blonde trouble. Beaucoup de goût, surtout du houblon. Pas la meilleure de chez De Dolle d'après moi mais bon produit.

Heavy deep orange, plentiful white head. Rounded taste balanced with hop bitters, pineapple, wheat and pepper spice. Be sure to drink at appropriate temp, let settle for about 15 minutes out of fridge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
