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.

Fukito (891) - Sao Paulo, - MAR 31, 2007
Bottle at Cerveceria Oldemburg, march 07. Cloudy golden color with a huge, foaming, white head. Pickles, vinegary, salty aroma. Sweet-sour flavor,, complex sweet sourness with an overwhelming tettnanger-like , grassy hop finnish. Light to medium MF, quaffable, effervescent. Complex, nice, but a bit too much in some moments.

Tried in bottle. Bought at Tribaun, Austria. Colour is hazy amber/orange. Huge thick white head, great retention. Aroma is candy, straw, banana, yeasty and slightly antiseptic. Taste is similar with citrus, and a bitter/sweet balance that I like a lot. Nice dry bitter finish. Has a slight antiseptic flavour hidden in there too but overall nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mad_Ferret (727) - SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Kihoskh. Exactly 1 year old. Golden orange, hazy from sediment, huge soapy bubbly off white head, good dense lacings. Fruity spicy hoppy aroma, though muddled from the aging, belgian yeast, white bread, oranges, orange peel, green banana, some peach, cucumber. Flavour holds lots of oranges, carambola, green banana, white bread, yeast, hay and zest. Just a pinch of marzipan. The end is dry. Medium to full bodied, big round mushy carbonation, soft texture. It’s very good. Feels like a lighter version of Westmalle Triple. Almost... And one year of age didn’t put it to shame at all.

Hoppy_Luke (552) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Arabier - oczywiście od Hopestera :) Złociste piwo z wieeelką pianą. Najpierw wzorcowy gushing, później stopniowe dolewanie, z którego każde kończyło się powstaniem mnóstwa piany. W aromacie owoce - trochę bananów, cytryny. Gdzieś też trochę karmelu. W smaku owocowo, orzeźwiająco, nieco chmielowej goryczki, trochę słodyczy. Wysokie wysycenie nieco przeszkadzało, ale ogólnie piło się bardzo przyjemnie. Godne polecenia!

Tstamba (407) - Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle to a pint ... Hazy light hold. Ample foamy white head. Some fresh straw and barnyard funk ... Flavors are similar with a dry tangy sour finish. Nice beer!

EdKing (2093) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines. Colour is murky cloudy amber, big head. Nose is a bit bonkers. Lemon, citrous sour, farmyard, manure, musty barley grain, lot of Brett funk, grass and straw, pineapple. Taste is Brett yeasty, lemon and citric acidic, farmyard, manure, funky, musty grain, barley gratin, earthy, lime and some tropical notes. It tastes like there’s some sorachi ace in their somewhere

Gusher! Very strong smell and taste of T.CP. I thinks it is off. Such a shame as I was looking forward to another classic from De Dolle Brouwers.

hohops (471) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Appearance is clear, golden and effervescent, a huge white pillowy head which takes a while to settle. Aroma- banana, candy, syrup, hint of zest, crisp hops, caramel undertones, spices, fresh fruit, slightly grassy. Taste- fruity, lemon zest, fluffy banana, hop bitterness but also a sweetness in there, orange peel, long bitter finish. Very good.

Well, now I am stuck. If I said that the De Ryck Special smells like farm, this one is a farm power ten. About taste, it’s spicy and flowery. Oh and be careful, the beer overflowed from the bottle when opened.

Bière à l’arôme acide.Arrière goût houblonné. Elle diffère de la blonde classique par son goût légèrement épicé et son fort taux d’alcool
