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.

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 (460) - 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

Ulysse (267) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2015
The beer gushed out of the bottle. Even though it was bottled 11 months ago. Rather spicy blond beer. Perfume slash alcohol aftertaste.

Very bitter almost sour. But a base of their buttery beer. End is not Belgian but a hoppy bitter buttery mess ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
