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.

Picked up at the COOP tonight.... Pours a very light straw colored brew with a nice 2 finger white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is grainy pale malts with hints of something that I associate with citrus and maybe even strawberry... but the fruitiness is very restrained... no real hoppiness except some light grassy notes that I may be imagining. Flavor mirrors the aroma with a lingering grainy/light husky maltiness... the fruitiness is still there, but really light... some peppery notes with warmth. Body is light and effervescent. Not sure that I EVER would have guessed this as a Belgian Pale. Drinkable... but somehow boring.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 New Belgium’s latest summer offering is not good. It is okay. Pours a misty yellow with thin white head. Smells of lemon, hops, and malt and a little bit of tart fruit. Tastes like a pale ale with sour fruit. It does not really work for me. It is interesting as a flavor but I don’t think it is great.

A decent beer, very light pour and aroma, crisp, light taste. Refreshing and very drinkable, but not the best New Belgium.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours clear, light gold, with a cottony white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty, very floral. Taste is a soft floral bitter, citrus, lightly belgian-styled.... I’d like to be more descriptive, but I honestly have no point of reference on "soursop and monk fruit"... Therefore I’ll give it a slightly above average rating...not bad, really....different, a pretty nice taste.

notalush (4765) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2013
Clear light gold with a rather thick lace - aroma of tart citrus, lightly bitter herbs, floral notes, a light touch of mineral - moderate carbonation - fairly dry in flavor, which is nice, but its a bit overly bitter, especially on the tail end (tastes like an herbal bitterness rather than hops - perhaps this is the soursop, but I am not familiar with what that tastes like) - some tart citrus, a light peppery character - mineral bite on the end - some nice stuff happening, but that bitterness is too much and lingers for way too long on the tongue.

Bottle. Light hazy yellow pour with a white head. Light floral and citrus on the aroma and taste. Soft carbonation. Slightly sweet late.

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2013
botte. filtered clear pale gold with a medium-sized white head dying out into a thin white film with patchy, long-lasting lacing. hey, it’s another "Belgian-style pale ale" that smells like dryer sheets, vitamins and makeup powder. the fruit is indistinguishable, if anything there’s a tart prickly pear cactus and common weed / dandelion smell and flavor that it gives the beer. medium-light body with moderate bitterness, low sweetness, grainy malt texture, dull, stale pale malt flavor. crusty, chalky, minerallic, tart, sourish and gross. this foul sort of beer will be pushed as craft on the unsuspecting.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep urine yellow with a medium sized fizzy white head with plenty of sticky lace. Nose of earth, tart fruits, lemon, light citrus and flowers. Similar flavor, fruity upfront with a more grainy, malty finish. More balanced than the tartness from the nose suggests. A little vegetal bitterness in fairly dry finish. A little soapy but not bad.
