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.

Mooi troebel goudkleurig bier met oranje gloed met rijke volle schuimkraag. Hop, gist, geel fruit, beetje citrus. Smaakt lekker romig met heerlijke zachte, licht bittere, afdronk. Topbier.

Hazy pale orange beer, big fluffy white head. Nose is very fruity, apricot, pineapple, hops, malt notes, spice. Flavor is citrus and apricot, malt, mild sweetness and coriander, yeast. Finishes with a firm grapefruity-herbal bitterness, spicy notes, some warm booze. Grapefruity retronasals. Lively carbonation. Very nicely balanced.

Piana gigantyczna, kremowa, drobna u góry i gruba od dołu, nieco mydlana. Barwa ciemno złota, błotnista, mętna, wypełniona drobinkami chmielowo-drożdżowymi. Aromat orzeźwiający, wyraźny, głównie estrowy - brzoskwinie, morele, ale również melanoidynowy (skórka od chleba, ciasto jabłkowe) i lekko dziki (siano, skóra). W smaku na wstępie uderza fajna mączność i pełnia tego piwa, przyjemna słodycz winogronowo-rodzynkowa, likierowe posmaki, które szybko są kontrowane sporą jak na styl, chmielowo-głogowo-pestkową goryczką, idealnie balansującą początkowy deserowy profil. Całość w połączeniu z wysokim nagazowaniem sprawia, że trunek pije się lekko i niezwykle gładko. O ile aromat jest tu zdecydowanie belgijski, o tyle w smaku pierwsze skrzypce gra chmielenie na zimno. Ogólnie świetna interpretacja jasnego Belgian Strong Ale, głęboko zakorzenionego w tradycji, jednocześnie mocno nachmielonego i podążającego z duchem craftu!

mateuszk (2085) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden in colour, bit hazy with very big white head (due to too high carbonation). Aroma and taste is malty, peachy and spicy. Low bodied, unpleasant high carbonation. Finish is hoppy and bitter. Decent.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - SEP 8, 2015
Hazy golden, with a huge very dense and lasting head, maybe too much (?). Spicy, yeasty, fruity. Great balance between sweetness and sourness, hoppy bitter kick. Very smooth on the palate. Very good.

Pours with a very strong thick white head. Quite cloudy. Tastes extremely happy with a very strong alcohol taste. A bit spicy with a very bitter aftertaste. Nice but not the greatest.

Mild und süffig mit einer leichten Note von Vanille und einer gewissen Blumigkeit. Einfach zu trinken, mundfüllend, nicht schlecht.
