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.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle:   Clear bright straw, large frothy white head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.   Sweaty fruity aroma, a little mealy.   Somewhat of a fake floral start, perfume, a little like fragrant soap.   Wheaty background.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is too artificial, soapy, with sweaty floral notes.   Not terribly bad, certainly a change of pace, but too fake overall.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy straw yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that eventually reduced to a fluffy puddled film with a large collar, which produced excellent full sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of grain and cereal malts, herbal hops and a soapy Belgian yeast with a bold note of citrus (lemon), a mild vinous scent, a definite fruitiness (must be the monk fruit) and a light peppery spice.

The taste was lightly bitter with a nice fruity sweetness and a creamy malty feel from the start, becoming decently hoppy with a strong citrus presence and just a touch of spice towards the finish. The flavor lasted a tad longer than average following the swallow, with the slightly spicy citrus taste fading slowly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a creamy, dry texture and a ticklish carbonation.

Overall this is a good summer BBQ brew that I see it pairing very well with some grilled Surf and Turf... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 5, 2013
This brewery is not quite in the belgian style. They do great ones but are too soft in tastes. It was refreshing and nice in the whole as other style.

Frahmo (248) - Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle, 10 days past its "serve by" date. Poured a pale hazy color with a white head. Very light on the tongue, and very tasty. Great alternative to a pilsner on a hot day.

Pale golden with medium fluffy head. Aroma of hay, flowers, honey. Taste is sweet and flowery, light but snappy. Finish is short with some lingering light hoppiness.

paintedmaple (365) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2013
12oz bottle...had to try this as it is brewed with soursop and monkfruit and I was not disappointed. Bright golden with a thin white head the sweet/sour flavor of the tropical fruits along with a crisp and rather dry tart finish made for a very drinkable and complex beer. Well done.

Bottle from Kroger. Very light pour with a small white head. Aroma is hay and maybe some sourness. Taste is kinda citrus, light bitterness, and thatís about it.

As the end of summer nears, I thought it would be a good idea to flush the queue as much as possible of all of my summer seasonal beers. For some reason Iíve been putting off alot of summer ales this year. This one, well, doesnít have very good curb appeal. The label... no comment. The description... not making things any better to say the least. Still, Iím going to suffer through this. And now I learn that itís a Belgian ale. Great. This beer is a super light yellow in color with a wickedly frothy bright white head. I still donít want to drink this. It smells like fermented compost. There are some grains, rotting fruit, and a hint of Belgian yeast in the nose. Itís better in the mouth, much like a pilsener malt-forward session ale, but with some soured bitterness in the finish. I do have to admit that the addition of soursop and monk fruit are a nice addition and probably make this more enjoyable than if it was a straight-up pilsener malt-heavy Belgian ale, but that doesnít change my overall experience of the beer right now. The fruit seems to give it somewhat of a smooth mouth feel and weighs down the mouth a little. It also gives it a sweetness reminiscent of a sparkling white wine. Neat, light, interesting, and, I admit, better than I expected.
