Voivod (304) - Como, - MAY 19, 2003
Golden/orange colour, with a wonderful, creamy head. The aroma is fruity with strong traces of pineapple and peach. The flavour is fruity too (peach, apple, apricot), malty with a touch of sourness. Very good hoppy finish, quite spicy. Good complexity, well balanced...very nice!

ansalon (1629) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat, shared with friends. Pours a very clear yellow, almost white wine in color, with no head. Aromas of honey, marinated tangerine, slight funk and some vinous notes. Taste is caramel, honey, marinated tangerines, funk, white wine and slight vinegar. Mouthfeel is smooth and flat with no carbonation.

tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle (330 ml) @ Akkurat. Vintage 1992 (approximately). Clear golden with a small ring of white foam and no lacing.Aroma is light and dominated by cardboard along light fruity notes. Taste is also of carboard, but there’s also some nice sourness typical from De Dolle as well as light fruity notes and grains. Thin body, watery. Soft carbonation. Definitely way past it’s prime (which is totally understandable). Fun experience.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat shared with friends, 1992-ish, really old school label, pretty cool. Pours a clear gold with a tiny tiny ring of white foam. Aroma of light fruity banana, raisins, some cardboard. Taste is slightly sour, typical de dolle like sourness, grainy, and fruity, a bit like a faro actually. Palate is thin, a tad water with scarce carbonation. Not bad.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Tasted from bottle, from tap and under its alias De Kavijaks. Thick and firm, cream white, rocky head, yellowish peach blonde colour, cloudy. Strong orange presence in the aroma as well as hay, pepper, banana, cloves, ’speculaas’, bark, bitter honey, cheese, marzipan. Fruity taste, citrussy freshness, not too sweet, light honeyish malt, overpowered by a ’green’, resinous, quite sharp hop bitterness that dries the finish. Typical uncompromising Dolle brew.

VsXsV (2455) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat. 1992 vintage. Clear deep golden liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of dried fruit, cachaca, port wine, pears and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and light to medium sour with notes of cachaca, raw sugar and bread. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty good.

corkyrory66 (709) - BELGIUM - APR 9, 2014
Une bière des Dolle à 6 % abv. Couleur ambrée/abricot, un peu cuivrée. Apparence pleine de levure, parce qu’il y avait une énorme gazéification au décapsulage. Bulles par contre pas très vives, mais en colonnes droites. Mousse blanche qui vient très vite napper à 2 mm. Arômes de blé, avoine, pointe de coriandre et genièvre. 1ère bouche souple avec un bel élan sur du malt/houblon, et une épice un peu muscadée. Arrière-bouche ample, complexe, épicée. 2ème avec des câpres, de la girofle, des fruits blancs, houblon amer. Arrière-bouche pas désagréable. 3ème sur l’amertume et des agrumes, fine pointe de citron, un peu de melon. Arrière-bouche plutôt sur du malt blanc. La longueur part sur un côté plutôt alcoolisé, rappel de certains vieux genièvres, un peu acide aussi. La levure est une grande levure, fine, précise. L’alcool est un peu short mais il remplit son rôle. La finale est assez ample, avec de la qualité. CONCLUSION : une bière intéressante, avec des aspects originaux, mais qui manque d’une ligne directrice. Juste un peu curieuse, comme peut l’être la Dulle Teve... Mais que l’on se rassure, il y a bien d’autres bières chez ce brasseur pour satisfaire tout le monde ...
