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.

This beer is very pleasing on the eye, pours dark hazy orange with a HUGE frothy white head.Aroma is sweet and hoppy,but the taste is slightly bitter.The combination works and it isnt like any other beer Ive tasted...another quirky drink from this great brewery.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Having this with some angle hair pasta. This thing poured a huge head. And it’s staying there. Aroma is slight bit of banana with some gentle spice to it. A bit of leafy floral hops in the aroma as well. Flavor to this is real crisp and well defined. The hop presence really comes off this with a heavier mouthfeel. FIne hoppy belgian strong.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Big fluffy head atop a glowing orange beer. Aroma is light spices, yeast, some esters. Taste is more yeast and spiciness, with noticable astringency. Light mouthfeel. Decent spiced finish, but again the astringency offsets.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2005
Cloudy golden and a big frothy head. Sweet, fruity aroma, but less fruit in the taste, I thought. Bitterness is very evident early on, tending to obscure the earlier sweetness. Plenty of alcohol in the taste too. Not my favourite Belgian.

JK (4837) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Light fruit aroma. Looks very good. A thick white head that lasts a long time, and a dark orange, cloudy beer. No sediment. Flavor is plain with some malt and bitter hops, none of the fruit or sweetness that you would expect from the aroma.

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2005
33cl bottle Pours a thick, opaque peach color with a hint of brown, makes a huge fluffy white head. Light floral aroma with notes of coriander and cloves. Flavor is complex with fruits and lightly spiced, has a sweet aftertaste. Medium on the palate, creamy texture and finishes dry. A rather good strong pale ale, easy to drink, alcohol content is very subdued by the complexity in the flavors. I would try this one again.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Big yeasty aroma - bready, earthy, a little musty, peppery; nice apple-plum fruitiness as well. Hazy golden color, big frothy white head, lots of carbonation evident. Tastes sweet and fruity when it first hits the tongue, but it dries out quickly and ends with a solid hop bitterness. Flavor lacks the complexity and fullness of the aroma. Medium bodied with very high carbonation. A nice Belgian ale, nice yeast character but with more hop bitterness than most Belgians.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Dark orange in color with a large pillowy white head which lasts forever, leaves some nice lacing. Nose of white sugars and alcohol. Not much flavor to this one, mostly alcohol mixed with some bland hops.

presario (4799) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Half head half beer in the glass. Dark orange-yellow colour. Nice aroma of candy sugar and mellon. Spritzy start, baking soda finish. Sour grapefruit finish.
