3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cL bottle. Pours very lively with the classic and rediculous huge white De Dolles head. The beer is orange and almost clear. Aroma is fresh grapefruity hoppy. Flavour is sharp yeasty mixing in with a solid caramel malt sweetness and a decent bitterness in the finish. Straight forward yet powerful.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very lively beer with a huge lasting off white head. The beer is a hazy orange. The aroma is spicy and yeasty with notes of corriander - I'm not able to pick out other spices. The flavor is sweet, spicy, malty with notes of yeast, corriander, and other spices. The mouthfeel is fine. I'll definatly have this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Another mad brew from "De Dolle". Compared to "Oerbier" this is both lighter and more dry. At the same time it has the rather unusual character of being both tart and bitter at the same time. A beer you only drink if you’ve got time for the head to settle. Lots of time... 140194

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2009 2009-11-28, 3 years old, 8% ABV, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Of all De Dolle beers, this must be the most lively; it pours a bright golden color, one finger, under a cloud of foam. The malt aroma is spicey (coriander, mild cloves), with honey undertones, sweet; very interesting. The flavor is sweetish, malty, a bit spicy; the bitterness has been attenuated, and the alcohol increased. It’s a perfectly mature beer, even if it may have lost some hopping.
2003-05-10, 7% ABV, 8-5-9-5-17=44
Golden to amber color. Very nice aroma, with hop, old hops, wood. Great taste, complex, malty, perfectly balanced, with some fruitness, caramel.
I didn’t expect so much, De Dolle is great.
Pale amber colour, clean, creamy head. Classic aroma for these beers, of malt, candy sugar, hop, light wood cask. Dry, bitter and pretty sour; tart, astringent. The palate is as well dry, bitter, astringent, a good digestive.
