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.

33cl Bottle, purchased from Nikki’s Liquors - Providence, RI. July 2010. I didn’t realize this was a hoppy beer that demanded freshness, so I’m left with a beer that appears infected and oxidized. I’m going to trooper through and put a mental note down to re-rate. Aroma prickles with aged hops and the calvados-like warm aged apple aroma that I associated with De Dolle products. The flavor is dominated by past-peak hops, but somehow it doesn’t turn dusty, instead veering into a lightly cheesy, almost lambic-hop like bitter note. Yeasty throughout. Warm. Lightly tangy. Is this even fair?

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

5/4/2007 2:59:59 PM Bottle at home. Wonderful Ale. Really grainy, sweet and SOUR aroma. Spicy, while sweet, with dense and tingly texture. Bitter and razor sharp acidic finish. Great.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a cloudy amber colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of malt, hops and perfume. Taste of malt, Belgian yeast, hops, flowers, perfume and sweet fruits. Thick finish. Solid beer.

Malty and hoppy taste. The nose is a sweet malt presence with a very subdued hop note. Not as boozy as I would have thought. Very nice.

Vells (1061) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - AUG 9, 2015
Nice Belgian strong, tho hops didnt worked so well for me. Lovely huge maltiness, quite intense spicy, bit clean yeasty, some lemony hops with herbal impact. Moderate sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Tho in every aspect I can call this beer decent, but in overall picture something lacks and something feels too much

Blondachtig bier met een mooie gouden kleur en redelijke schuimkraag. Lekkere smaak bij eerste slok maar bier is erg hoppig en enorm bitter en dit blijft (te) lang hangen.

Pours a hazy light amber body with a thick head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Pointy taste with a clear bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zwaar blond bier. Veel bitter in de smaak. Dunne schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. Lekker maar geen master-class !
