Much thanks to hopdog for having this one around and opening it up for us! Pours a lightly hazy goldne with floaties and a bubbly off white head. Aroma of that classic De Dolle yeast strain. A little musty, candy sugar notes, peppery, some light vegetal notes and citrus. Flavor of peppery yeast, lively carbonation, candy sugar, earthy, banana. This one really smooths out surprisingly as the carbonation releases.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Pauls. Pours a hazy copper body with a white head. Earthy dry herbal body. Funky floral, earth toned, light grassy hoppiness. A bit funky with some light citrus fruit esters and a strong green earth finish. Nice.

Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Labeled with the fancy little bow tie as Matrassbiere. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Nice brett funk, citrus, lemon, hay. Crazy carbonation on here. Very intense. Nice slow brett flavor, really flavorful. Crisp and dry, very refreshing.

GT2 (9327) - 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.

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.

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.
