Aroma has yeast, hops and citrus. Hoppy flavor with citrus and a bit of cherry. Rather thin with some tartness. Buttery with a pear and peach fruitiness. I like Dolle Brouwers beers and this is no exception.

Ernest (6488) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 Head is initially large, frothy, rocky, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), moderately hoppy (lemon, flowers), with notes of clove and pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.

pivo (2610) - GERMANY - JAN 12, 2003
Perfumy nose - a little musty too. Hazy bright orange color and big, big frothy, rocky head. Citrusy flavors and a sharp dirty bitter hop finish, which was at first off putting, but I really warmed up to this half way through the glass. Not convinced of the balance though.

YogiBeera (2516) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 First rating 7/4/8/4/16 - overall 3.9 Lemony, apple, vanilla and yeast nose. Huge rocky head on the hazy orange/yellow brew. Tastes in the beginning like a Weizen, when very hoppy bitter notes, at the border of beeing harsh, but still nice. Long lasting finish. When you got used to the flavor, it is just doll! Nice! RERATE of 2002 - at the LCRBG 2005: Wasn’t to convinced the second time- spicyness and saltiness - great nose but not overly convincing.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2002
blond beer with a big creamy head. Some particles do flow around. Distinct hop aroma with some rubber wheels in the background. Rubbery, hoppy and bitter taste with some citrus. Carbonated palate with medium bitter finish. Rather long bitter aftertaste.

caesar (5468) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 Golden orange color, cloudy. Huge longlasting head, rocky and frothy, white. Smells typically of a De Dolle brew, is it the typical yeast? Bit sour, spicy, fruity, all together, cheesy even. Slightly bitter dry palate, but only slightly. As i like De Dolle Brouwers, this brew is also a special one. I think there should be a style called 'De Dolle'!

skortila (4667) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2002
Typical ’Dolle’ aroma. bit like a triple. I don’t know how a ’Bitter’ tastes but I consider this beer a Belgian ale. Cloudy golden appearance, lasting ’duvel-like’ head. Starts sweet, bit fruity and develops more bitter, bit our perhaps. Palate is bitter. Definately another good Dolle brew.

Like all the ’de dolle brouwers’ stuff, heavy stuff, even with an alcohol of only 6%...

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2002
Very faintly hazy gold colour under a huge off white head with some lace. Delicate faint floral nectar, tropical fruit, hops and cheesey yeast aroma. Alcohol quite evident for only a 6% ABV. Medium strong bitter flavour and alcohol at the start. Slightly less bitter in the middle and light bitter/slightly sour finish. Yeasty spicey aftertaste. Not as complex or as interesting as the other De Dolle beers

Not a bad beer. Bitter, a little sweet, some citrus, some honey.
