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!

Bottle. Hazy orange gold with a large rocky foam. Aromas are yeasty lemon with oranges and yeast. Mellow pine with nutty notes and light honey. Flavours are grain and honey with green pine and yeast. Woody with pithy grapefruit. Good.

JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
UFO-riddled bottle, raising a tower of dense, fine, yellow head, slowly giving birth to orange gold-to-copper, very finely and lively carbonated, but strangely enough near clear beer. C-hop aroma, but also cookies, even liquorice. Exotic fruit syrup, rosewater concentrate - smelling pretty sweet. Toasted and hopbitter, but with a really syrupy-sweet undercurrent. Fruit dried fruit on cake, liquorice, bitter spices. Very slightly sticky, well-carbonated, light to medium bodied. Hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Somehow, it doesn’t convince me - there’s just too much sweet malts for its intended purpose. Which does not make it a bad beer, mind!

Skinnyviking (7235) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle at home. High fluffy and long lasting white head. Hazy amber orange body. Dusty straw bisquit aroma. Mildly hopped and yet quite tasty orange lemon flavor with low carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Well done.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus/grapefruit note with a hint of resin and a light grain backbone. Flavor has a real nice citrus note that grows in bitterness and is backed by light sweet grains.

lusikka (6570) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit, herbal hoppiness and nettles. Flavour of crisp herbal hoppiness, grass, chewy citrusy notes, resin and bready malts. Light bodied and a dry, strong bitter finish. Carbonation is a bit too high. Overall refreshing and nice.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Lots of resinous hops on the nose, caramel malts too, I would have guessed this as a DIPA from the aroma if tasted blind, some grapefruits, pine needles and grainy notes can be found too. Resinous hops again on the flavor, caramel, sweet fruity notes and wood. Strong carbonation, bitter malty finish. Lots of flavor here but somehow it’s not that pleasant for me, maybe too resinous or something.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2014
(Bottle, In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 1 March 2014) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, apricots, grapefruit and slightly grainy malt. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of grainy malt, apricots, orange peel, grapefruit, crisp-bread and a certain citric bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing, highly drinkable. Nice one.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 19.09.2013
Aroma has citrus, some resiny tones and caramel. Also some hops and fruits. Flavour has some plastic tones, gooseberry bush and fruity notes. Aroma was nice but flavour is bitter in a harsh way. Plastic notes take over at the end of the glass.
