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.

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

DocJitsu (990) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours a crystal clear, pale golden color with a pure white head. Head formation and retention were pretty lousy. Migration of carbonation bubbles from the bottom occurred for the duration. Faint aromas of sweet floral, like honeysuckle and corn. Medium body with good balance of slickness and carbonation. Dries a little right at the finish. Light and refreshing flavors of honey and faint honeydew melon. Decent.

Bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, fruittiness and spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, spice and citrus with a crisp dry lingering spiced citrus finish.

When a beer smells like dish soap, it doesn’t set the tone for a good experience... this one did, but it ended up being alright. Served too cold initially, the aroma opened up to more floral, albeit perfume/potpourri comes to mind, and light citrus as it warmed. Flavor is reminiscent of a pale ale, along with a little Belgian yeast. Lightly floral, but a little fruity goes well with the yeast. Mild intensity. Definitely a better experience after it sat on the kitchen counter for an hour or so.

Drinking this one at romp 2013 Smells of New Belgium style. Nose is of citrus, fruits, just a touch of spicy bitterness, sweet malts, peaches, and pineapple. Flavor is dry, lightly tart, citrusy and medium(ly) bitter. Good beer, good times.
