COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lots of people said to us we should make a lower alcohol beer, a more easy drinking session-like beer. We at Rooie Dop agreed and made a promise. Here it is: The 24/7 Session Ale! This member of the Rooie Dop family is clean and very hoppy. Saaz hops from the old world balancing out the epic Citra hops from the new world. A beer with less than 5% alcohol, session drinking all day long!

PotjeBier (1602) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
33 cl bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Golden to orange color, a bit hazy. White head, quickly disappearing, with just a thin layer retention. Aroma’s: fresh hops, herbal, citrus, a hint of sourness, little malt. Some sourness retronasal as well, not sure if that was intentional. Flavor is light bitter with some grain & malty sweetness. Light bodied, but not too thin. Finishes with moderate bitterness that pleasantly lingers on. Lovely on this Summer day.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy orange/amber with a small white head which disappeared pretty quickly. Medium body with low carbonation. Grass, hops and hints of citrus. A well balanced ale with a good combination of sweet- and bitterness.

Draft sample @ Tilburg Bierfestival 2013 & 33 cl. bottle @ home purchased @ De Molen. Review is for the bottle. Bottled on 29/05/2013. Murky bright peach orange, almost no head. Nose is heavy on mango & passion fruit, very, almost sweetish fruity hop notes, light grapefruit, touches of marmalade and candy sugar. Mango, grapefruit taste, pineapple, pine, passion fruit, tropical fruits, citrus, caramel, taste is a bit less outspoken than I hoped for after the smell but still wonderful. Very easy to drink, light, could indeed drink this 24/7.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is fresh fruity hops, mostly fruity, melon, orange and grapefruit. Flavour is light malt sweetness to start, then some fruity hops bonanza with light to medium bitterness. Yes, I could drink this 24/7.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 2, 2013
Misty orange body, large stable head. Significant hop aroma, classic yet rich enough to give a modern appeal. Oranges and light malts, summery. Quite bitter though, good, but dry, sour even. Not sessionable because if lack if taste, but because of its dry character. Turned out well and interesting. (Tilburg Beer Festival)

Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow to orange with a medium to big white head. Smells quite nice! Fruity, fresh, hoppy, floral.. Lovely. Tastes hoppy, fresh, some pine, grapefruit and lovely bitter. Great brew! Medium body (even though it?s only 4.9%), great carbo. It could’ve been a bit more crisp.. That would make it evwn nwtter for me, but I have no idea how that should be achieved.
