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.

paulvanpelt (485) - Reusel, - NOV 19, 2013
Goudkleurig, nevelig bier met flinke net niet witte schuimkraag. Aroma is hop, citrus, kruidig, pittig. Droge nasmaak, verder vooral erg bitter, zeer licht zoet en zuur. Koolzuurrijk, medium tot volle body.

3fourths (8980) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2016 Bottle-conditioned 33cl stamped March 2016, two+ months. Hazed golden-amber with a rocky white head. Aroma impression is dusty hay, dried herbs, lemon rind, cracked pepper, gum, fruity-tropical esters and basement must. Medium-full bodied, sweet and fruity up front before the carbonation explodes and the sharp bitterness takes hold in a mouth-watering and relentless finish. This is that sort of sticky-scraping-everlasting bitterness that works so well with noble varieties... Knoblach-level hoppy, and with this yeast strain, comparisons could be made to De Ranke XX and XXX.

De Dolle is one of my favorite beer, not because he had been all but for the quality of their beers. Most are wonderful. Arabier fails to l’exelencia, segurarment because I like beer and contrasting stronger. All in all, a fantastic beer!

Boxereddy (417) - BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2016
Helder goudkleurig bier met veel rondzwevend gist sediment en mooie, grote, donzige gebroken witteschuimkraag. Aroma: fleurig met wat overrijpe vruchten, hooi en middelgrote bruine suiker. Smaak: begint zoetig met bruine suiker, hooi, lichte karamel en gist, maar krijgt echt bitter en aards over de finish. Mondgevoel is gemiddeld met een goede hoeveelheid koolzuur.

martin00sr (2385) - Haderslev, DENMARK - APR 22, 2016
Clear golden, airy white head. Malty aroma, honey, wood and tobacco, floral yeasty notes. Flavour is fruity, slightly rough, floral bitterness (?!). Honey-like sweetness, hoppy bitterness. Alcoholic and rather light. Quite complex and very well balanced.

ciocanelu (885) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 4, 2016
Clear, dark golden color with lots of yeast sediment floating around, huge, fluffy off-white head. Aroma has classic belgian yeast esters. Floral with some overripe fruits, hay and medium brown sugar. Taste starts on the sweet side with brown sugar, hay, slight caramel and yeast but gets really bitter and earthy on the finish. Seems more like a belgian IPA to me. After the the foam settles, you get some earthy hops as well in the aroma and taste but mostly the bitterness. Medium, soft body with a good amount of carbonation. ABV is hidden very well, making the beer really drinkable for 8%. An excellent example of a well made belgian pale ale.
