jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2008
2008-02-29. Hazy golden yellow with a big white head that fades (3+). Lightly yeasty aroma, light alcoholic hints of lemon and pineapple. (7+) Dry lightly alcoholic flavour, fruit of the aroma appears here as well but is more dry, and more muted. (7+) Underlying pale malt character. Very light floral hop note in the aroma? Medium bodied palate. (3+) Solid, and actually sort of refreshing.
Bottle at Kulminator, Antwerp

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 The beer of my city :) Browed by the dolle browers. It’s a very rare beer, because you don’t find it everywhere. Full aroma with some bitter hopflavor. At the end some sweetness. Only negative point for me is the alcoholic flavor. But a Top class beer!

bottle at kulminator. 1998 vintage. pours clear blonde with fluffy head. nose of lemon citrus, and soft yeasty spiciness. flavor is citrusy, coriander, lots of spicyness to this one. really nice vibrant and spicy blonde. mouth feel is full and carbonation is very lively. like a spicy saison.

Bottle @ YNWA. 2002 Vintage! (8%) Imagine my surprise, when I saw the (single) bottle in the fridge at YNWA :o)

Pour is a muddy pale yellow under a small white film head. There are no apparent yeast sediments at all. Aroma is quite sweet with oranges, yeast (Dolle) and a definite youghurt feel. Mouthfeel is a little grainy and dries out my mouth easily. Flavour is dominated by yeast and a light fruity sourness. Finishes sweet with Belgian sugars and a good warming viniousness. Otherwise a littel berries and light coriander shines through. A great brew, not Dolle’s best, but still great!

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Tasted a 2006 version. A very fine spicy taste and some bitterness. A good and very nice beer. Earlier versions are only 8 % alcohol

Saw a fellow in the kulminator with one of these so ran back an got one on my last nite. Think its 2003 bottle? Noteable de dolle yeast, hints of wheat and spice. Taste is similar notable alcohol, spicey, peppery finish.

Linc (739) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2007
Deep gold with big foamy head. Some banana aroma. Slightly tart palate, gives cleanness to the full malty body. Very easy to drink, though lacking ’focus’.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2006
Cloudy golden-blonde body with a medium white head. Smell of harvesting season. Lots of hay, some citrus, candy and honey and that De Dolle yeast all over the place. Dry hops mouthfeel. Although very much a strong Belgian I thought there was some gueuzish elements in the aroma and finish (freshly cut hay and dry favourless hops). Thick muffin like mouthfeel. Alcohol extremely well hidden. 9%!?! You’ve got to be kidding me, that stuff is so light I could easily drink 10 of them. After 8: “Hey bob, I love you man, you’re my best friend”. Bob: “my name is Ron.”

Clear golden. Large frothy head. Not stable. De Dolle yeast aroma. Ripe fuit. Excellent balance between bitter and sweet.
