3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle. Gushed like a beast! Managed to get my thumb on top and spray at the window until it settled down. Still got about 8 ounces. Hazy golden brown with splotchy lace from the settling foam. Nose is sweaty pits, toffee, grass and light citrus. Oily medium body with fizzy carb. Taste is honey, grass and yeast finishing with bitter orange peel. Almost 2 years old so maybe not at its best but always a crazy experience from De Dolle.

An sich klar, aber Mengen an schwebenden Sedimentteilchen (dryhopping mit Pellets? ) Weisser, etwas grobporiger Schaum, der aber ewig hält. Aroma Honig, Pfirsich, Weintraube. Antrunk Ananas, mango, Hefe - trotz des Alters der Flasche noch heftige Hopfenbitterkeit, die länger nachhängt.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Blonde with orange hue and huge gushing white foamy head. In a way the big head on top of the orange beer resembles an Arab wearing a turban. Maybe that explains the name? [Looking at a glass with 1/5 beer and 4/5 foam]. Sweet malts, yeast, lemon(peels), coriander, cloves, lots of spices and hoppiness. Over moderate bitter on top of an over medium sugary sweet backbone. Body is slightly heavier than light. Finish is almost tart, yoghurty/yeasty. Carbo is average and well balanced with the beer. Interesting stuff. "Imperial witbier"/"Witbier tripel".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330ml. A clear golden beer with a very foamy white head. Aroma is of citrics, especially lemon and green apple, hops, spices and hints of alcohol. Taste is bitter with a slightly sour aftertaste. Medium bodied with considerable carbonation and astringency. Aftertaste is well-balanced; not too strong yet with a nice character.
