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.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2006
12 oz, and it was a major gusher. Took almost 20 minutes to properly pour. Appearance, very cloudy, light brown looks like hazy ice tea. Aroma: somewhat pungent, like Brett, with some fruity phenolic notes. Taste is tart, I think this is past it’s shelf life.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottled at Issac Newton’s sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. Aroma of spices, citrus, fruit, yeast, alcohol and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet, fruity, citrus, and a bitter finish.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2006
[bottle] Pours a golden, cloudy yellow color. Holds its head very well, leaving some nice puffy clouds. Flavors are yeasty, doughy, with some mild citrus notes. Very easily drinkable- alcohol is present, but not too in your face. Finishes mildly bitter, with floral hops.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2006
Bottle: Dirty straw, very cloudy, HUGE sudsy white head, fairly nice lacing, vibrant carbonation.   Sharp bready aroma, slightly floral, citrus twist, somewhat candyish.   Bready start, not as sweet as suggested on the nose, quite malty actually.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes very doughy.   Aroma suggested it being a bit more spiced, but it seemed like a very dull Tripel that was very bready/malty with only a slight hint of citrus sweetness.   Still good, but somewhat of a let down after smelling it.

CMUBEERMAN (426) - - APR 6, 2006
Pours a orange gold and has probably one of the most monster pure white heads I’ve ever seen. Aroma is spicey...cloves and coriander, funky yeast and brett, I’ll second the last guy that there is a bunch of pineapple and citrus, hints of bubble gum, and a bit of grassy hops. Flavor is pretty damn good...a bit funky as well. Begins with sweet malt, fruit (some sour grape), and spicey funk. Finishes wit a big funky bitterness from the bret and hops. I can dig this stuff. Honestly, mine might have been infected because I don’t see much mention of brett around here...and we’re talking ginourmous head. Mouthfeel is a bit thick for a light colored belgian...and very dry. I love the de dolle folks.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - APR 3, 2006
33 cl bottle. The bottle says 8%. Yeast at the bottom. Light amber colour with a huge head. Aroma of sweetness, spice, orange and pineapple. Very bitter flavour of malt and sweetness that ends up very dry and hints of spices.

NewCastle1 (59) - Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured a massive off white head that lasts the whole time your drinking this ale. Als had a odd greenish, brown, orange color to it. The taste was a little odd to me. I was expecting a tripel or something of that nature. Nice fruity flavoring. fruits, yeast, malts and some spice. Nice malty thickness to it. With a nice hoppy bitter finish. Have like everything fro De Dolle so far.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Bottled at Issac Newton’s. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white lasting white head, it just hangs until the finish. Aroma of belgian style spices, citrus, fruit, yeast, alcohol and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet, fruity, citrusy, and a bitter hoppy bite for a finish good body great brew.
