GT2 (8364) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 28, 2009
2008 version bottle courtesy of Glouglouburp. Pours a translucent yellow with an enormous white, fluffy head that has unbelievable retention and leaves enormous puff balls of lacing. Aroma is sort of Bretty, with citrus, lemon zest, flowers, a bit funky. Taste is almost sour but very saison-like albeit not as wine-like and dry. This has a nice citrusy, tart flavor with some muted but present balancing hops. Light-bodied and refreshing. Creamy palate. Yum. Nice to not have a gusher from De Dolle for once.

evergreen0199 (2004) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle. An amber coloured pour with a decent white head. Fruity aroma. Sharp hoppy taste, citrus fruit, bitter almost sour. I love De Dolle but I am not crazy about Oeral.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Courtesy Glouglouburp. Lightly hazy gold, modest white head. Past ripe fruits, dusty and spicy yeast, some age on it. Medium body, well carbonated, easy to drink. Would like to try a fresh bottle, still a nice golden ale with typical De Dolle elements.

MaxxDaddy (406) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle @ Delirium. Pours straw yellow with voluminous white head. Aroma is big on fruit, more of a tropical nature than berries. Taste starts very fruity but the excessive carbonation in this beer interferes with the taste. Flavor turns toward yeast later on. Very yeasty and bready in the finish. Such a shame that the extreme carbonation tarnished what was otherwise a pretty good beer.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity, apple with some sour notes. Flavor is nice begins sweet but ends a little sour.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a hazy golden body with average carbonation and a thin, lasting white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grapefruit, honeyish and herbal hints. Sharp hoppy taste that carries coriander and herbal/flowery notes. Ends with a long, bitter/sour finish. Enjoyable.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to Glouglouburp
Classic De Dolle pour: hazy gold-copper, large fluffy white head that lasts forever. Complex yet mellow nose of hop, yeast, pepper, cream. Flavor is very refreshing, slightly tart. Yeast, wheat, a little cream. The hop is awesome here, so fruity and juicy! You will not find a better palate: medium-full and lush yet completely smooth, and yet also just carbonated enough to ease the weight and keep it light and prickly. Long finish. While it’s not complex as a couple others from them, it is very integrated and reflects the consistent quality of De Dolle. Thanks so much for the rarity Dany!
