3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
vintage 2010. pours a murky dark yellow/orange color with a big bubbly head. typical Belgian aromas along with some sweet smelling fruits. carbonation has a slight bite to it. could use a dulling down. but other wise the taste is fantastic. not very well versed in the Belgian styles but this beer is definitely one of the better I’ve had the pleasure of trying. malts and hops balanced very well throughout.

Pours hazy apricot with a thick eggshell head. Aroma delivers fresh malt, fruity and subtle butterscotch notes. Flavor offers fruity, yeasty and fresh malt tones, though the butterscotch seems to disappear. Mouthfeel presents decent fizz and body. Happy any old holiday!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle at home. there is some kind of print on the cap, unfortunatly part is missing only 2015 is readable, which I assume means the vintage. orange hazy color with quite a lot of particles, rather big white head. smells of belgian yeast, spices, oranges, some sweetness, ripe fruits, good smell. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, belgian yeast, nice fruit notes, candy, good spices, peppery, light alcohol. finishes lightly dry with notes of ripe fruits and spices. good stuff drinks very good for the high ABV.

Bottle from 2014. Aroma: Quince tincture, winey, banana, apricot, spices, minimal licqueury feeling. Appearance: Nice stiff head, color is golden. Taste: Very smooth, strong quince again, very fruity, alcohol feelable just in the licqueury feeling, spices feelable stronger than in aroma. Palate: High carbonation, extremely drinkable, body is medium, finish is sweet.

Decided against ageing this bottle. Beautiful beer. Supremely drinkable for its ABV.
De Dolle are quickly becoming one of my favourite Belgian breweries.
Carbonation is just right. Retains a decent size head.
