gEUS (1395) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 24, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - taken from notes (08/02/2012). Pours clear light golden to dark yellow with a steady and creamy white head. Aromas of grass and floral notes, citrus and orange. Carbonation is quite present, medium mouthfeel and nicely bitter (but quite some alcohol glow as from the mid). Taste is more vegetable (reminds me of cauliflower). Okay beer.

The_Osprey (2928) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Cold bottle. Pours a hazy orange, sparkling with a thick and foamy head. Smells of yeast, carrots, babyfood, citrus. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation. Taste is initally caramel malts, yeast and citrus, moves on to some mixed vegetables, slight pepper, finish is biscuits and butter. Mildly drying. OK.

Vignale (2415) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2013
Flaska från biersgourmet.be. Mörkt gyllenfärgad, snyggt kompakt vitt skum, lätt disig. Stor estrig doft med viss alkohol, fruktkompott, belgisk jäst, koriander. smaken är lätt och frisk och kraftfull på samma gång, rejäl beska, fruktighet med lätt parfymerad känsla. En snygg, Välavvägd stark belgisk blond. Mycket god.

KyotoLefty (7337) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle at Delirium. Deep dark blonde with a high head. Fruity nose, pear, peach, a somewhat stewed character. Flavor of stewed fruit, peach, honey, pear. Hugely bitter finish. A rather strange beer that grew on me. Drinks much lighter than 9%

Silvan7 (823) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle @ home. é una versione speciale della Arabier per un festival a Lichtervelde. Ha quasi tutto in comune con la arabier ma ha un gusto più complesso e un tenore alcolico nettamente maggiore che sul finale scalda la bocca e rende il finale più appiccioso. é amara in maniera intensa ma mai stucchevole, sembrano luppoli americani per la maniera in cui solleticano il palato. Particolare ma non molto in linea lo stile De Dolle.
