3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Geers, tick central Belgium, bottled June 2014. Gold pour with very light haze and creamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity De Dolle signature, lots of tropical fruit, quite hoppy as well. Taste is yeasty, a bit boozy, good dose of pineapple with a lightly bitter finish. Pretty typical strong Belgian blond, I expect a bit more from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde beer launched for the Folkorefeesten of Lichtervelde in 1990 and kept in production, though the original version was a much lighter session beer of 6% ABV. Very thick and rocky, firm, off-white head over an orangey golden blonde beer, clear but cloudy after adding the deposit. Powerful fruity aroma of melon, pear, orange, peach, grass, white pepper, cognac, rhum, dough, honey and liquorice. Fresh fruity onset, malt sweetness, bit bready and caramelly, pretty strong carbo, orange peel, floral hop bitterness in the finish with warming and somewhat astringent alcohol. Typical Dolle beer, but not their most creative find.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Pours copper with no head. Aroma is of peaches, strong spruce, a lot of butterscotch. Taste is butterscotch, a small but prominent hint of tartness, peach, some oaky touches, and a lot of belgian yeast esters. The yeast sediment was pretty huge and not that pleasent on this one, I poured it in another glass and it was a completley different beer. It’s quite uncarbonated.
