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.

Thick, hazy orange brown with fluffy, cumulus cloud-like head. Aroma of a grassy meadow on a summer afternoon. Initial flavor is citrus, followed by pepper and malt. Nice bitter finish. Definitely worth seeking out.

A big gusher. V high carb fits the beer though. Fruity, yeasty, Belgian spice and very clear aftertaste with a little refreshing bitterness. A fantastic beer - v well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The carbonation issues really bugged me though

mgajdaczewa (1129) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 17, 2015
W aromacie świetne nuty winogronowe, brzoskwinie, przyprawy, intensywnie, kwintesencja Belgii. W smaku raczej wytrawne, przede wszystkim przyprawy, maleje owocowość, duża jak na styl goryczka, lekko popiołowo - ziołowa. Ciekawe podejście, ale wolę mniej chmielu na goryczkę w tym stylu.

Huge gusher, shooted the cap in my face. Hazy golden color with huge white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruit-estery, yeasty. Taste is fruity with pink grapefruits, yeasty, a bit malty, pleasantly bitter finish. High, but soft carbonation. Very good!

Achel (273) - Ioannina, GREECE - NOV 6, 2015
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.

Bottle at Cambrinus, 30th October 15. Pours a huge head, over carbonated. Aroma is Belgian yeast, some hops, slight sour. Taste is good, fairly straight forward, too fizzy, OK

weihenweizen (2475) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle, bottled on May 2014 poured into (gusher) Trappist glass. Hazy deep golden with huge white head. Aroma is fruity, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is fruity (Orange), yeasty, some hops, and dry finish. More like a saison. Not for me.
