3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden. Long white, foamy head. Aroma: Lemon, earth, malty. Flavor: Same but more bready. Spiced, dry finish. While there are better beers of in this category, it’s certainly drinkable.

Bottle. Poured a real anemic pale, yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aroma was real light, touch of spices. Flavor was mostly light malts, with notes of whatever fruits or spices they’ve added to this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
New Belgium Rolle Bolle has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, yellow appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, citrus juice, a slight spice, and white bread. Taste is of citrus juice, very light bread, subtle spice, and a bitterness underneath, which doesn’t really present itself in the initial sips. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and New Belgium Rolle Bolle finishes crisp, clean, juicy, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is good, and I recommend it for the flavored beer fans. RJT

Clear pale gold pour with a nice white head and decent lacing. Lemony aroma with some wheat, grain, and sweetness. Taste is lemon with some rubberband, wheat, and a hint of herbs. Fairly dry on the palate. Drinkable summer brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Best before: 09/08/13. Pours an extremely pale gold color with a big and fluffy off-white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. The aroma is light and wheaty with some lemons, zesty citrus rinds, grass, a subtle spiciness, and a touch of cereal grains. Goes down thin and fairly watery. The taste starts with plenty of wheat, a subtle breadiness, and semi-sweet cereal grains. Lemons, zesty citrus rinds, and a slight yeasty tang finish things off. Dry and bitter at the end. A dusting of spice. There is a unique fruity aftertaste that lingers a bit. Definitely drinkable, but ultimately rather forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light golden color and leaves the same color body with a half finger semi-white head that concaves gently into the body leaving a soapy looking bubbly lacing, smell is faint grainy grass, a little wheat, lemon, and other citrus - is that what monkfruit smells like - alright, but no yeast - ok - so what I guess - I dunno, the taste is slightly bitter yet sour but also slightly sweet through the wheat and citrus fruits, dry citrus aftertaste and finish, once again no yeast anywhere, pretty easy on the palatte, nothing bad, and nothing special, overall - hmm.... interesting take on a Belgian Pale Ale as no yeast is found anywhere throughout the entire six pack, quiet disclaimer to true Belgian fans, IMO, I don’t think you’ll like this, as it doesn’t seem yeasty enough

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Raley’s. It pours a very light yellow color with a small but lasting white head. The aroma is strong with mild sulfur and spice. Lager like… some hints of pineapple and bread as it warms. The flavor is clean and dry with light maltiness and spice, bread and hints of tropical fruit in the finish. Decent bitterness in the finish. I really kind of liked this one. One of my favorite new NB seasonals. Underrated.
