3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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'!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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%...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2006 re-rate: Bottled as Museumbier. Floral aroma with citric notes (lemon and grapefruit). Hazy, dark yellow color, off-white head, very nice lace, big bubbles. Sweet, light bitter, citric, not as refreshing though as expected from the aroma. Medium and sparkling mouthfeel. Technically good but not quite my style. Oct. 2001, 2.7: It’s a little sour. Nothing else to like about it.
