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.

mgajdaczewa (1417) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 17, 2015
W aromacie świetne nuty winogronowe, brzoskwinie, przyprawy, intensywnie, kwintesencja Belgii. W smaku raczej wytrawne, przede wszystkim przyprawy, maleje owocowość, duża jak na styl goryczka, lekko popiołowo - ziołowa. Ciekawe podejście, ale wolę mniej chmielu na goryczkę w tym stylu.

Huge gusher, shooted the cap in my face. Hazy golden color with huge white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruit-estery, yeasty. Taste is fruity with pink grapefruits, yeasty, a bit malty, pleasantly bitter finish. High, but soft carbonation. Very good!

Golden to amber color. Very nice aroma, with hop, old hops, wood. Great taste, complex, malty, perfectly balanced, with some fruitness, caramel. I didn’t expect so much, De Dolle is great.
