COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rolle Bolle is a wonderfully fun Belgian yard game and a delightfully easy summer ale. Brewed with monk fruit and soursop it stays true to the Belgian tradition of playing with beer and all that goes into it. Roll on.

Bottle and served in snifter: Pours a straw hue with an initial big fizzy head and left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of apricots, dragonfruit, peach, biscuity malt, wheat, and a light Belgium aromatic and bubblegum yeast ester. The taste is lightly tart, fruity and a tad grainy. Short and unassuming but just right for a hot summer afternoon. Overall, I would drink this again.

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Appearance: Pours a bright hazy yellow gold with a head that subsides to a dense white cap of white.

Aroma: Light perfumy yeast and citrus zest.

Taste: Pale biscuity malt, mild Europ hop spice, that good old NB house yeast found in most of their blonde colored beers. In between all is some pear like and stone fruit like pleasantness weaving in and out.

Mouthfeel: Lively carb. Full bodied. Drying bubbles.

Overall: Fresh, crisp, easy to drink, a little fruity and definitely refreshing. Itís hard for me to identify with all the exotic fruits New Belgium uses, so I do the best I can describing the fruit flavors I experience without any point of reference.

On tap. Golden pour with a white head. Pale lagery aroma. Flavor is decent, if unexciting, pale-malty pale lager flavor, but with more hops, generally in the grassy area. Gets better as I go on. Not too much excitement, but itís a quality version of the style... Except now Iím completely caught off guard that this is a Belgian Ale? Huh.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2013
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a two finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a gold color that shows just a hint of haze and a pale yellow-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells amply of citrusy tropical fruit character, and it even smells a touch tart. It is hard to smell anything underneath the fruit character.

This has a touch of malt sweetness, some fullness to the body, and a soft citrus character that morphs into more of a tropical fruit like note towards the middle and finish. A touch of metallic beer like character, some tinny spiciness and a hint of turpene like phenolic tongue numbing character in the finish adds a bit of balancing bite to this beer. The fruit character, while the dominant note int he flavor, is not quite as prominent as it is in the nose. Touches of hay like grain, and a suggestion of saltine cracker like malt character is able to come through here.

Quite simplistic in its fruit focus, but still enjoyable enough and refreshing. I would say that New Belgium hit what they were going after, but I also am not all that impressed, which is ok as I am probably not the target audience. This does have an interesting fruit character to it.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 Smell is appealing, light fruity smell. Seems like it will be java full body from the smell. Taste is a bit light but appealing. Overall a good summer beverage. Light, but with enough body and flavors to make it very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very strange sour aroma. Tires, wet socks and flowers. Very clear yellow pour with a respectable head. Taste is fortunately better and equally as strange but in a good way. Tastes like a pilsner that someone sneaked a piece of fruit into and you have no idea what that fruit is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange fruity smell that is yeasty, sweet, and chlorophyll rich...the color is clear and flaxen. The taste is fruit like but there's a bitter aftertaste...nearly spicy...unusual but not that interesting. Light enough to drink outdoors in Texas in July...but it might attract flies! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tart fruitiness on first aroma. Spicy first taste, but finishes earthy and woody. Slight fruit taste but very delicate. Great for summertime fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
