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!

77ships (4032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
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.

Idiosynkrasie (3848) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2013

Multifaceted hop aroma, floral, citrusy, herbal, minimally piney touch, cautious fruity hints of mango and grapefruit, a touch of dill, floral, yeasty overtones. Taste is dry, piney and herbal hoppy, cautious caramel malty basis, a minimally tart, tannic, chlorophyllic and chalky hop note reigns the finish. Slightly too raw.

erickok (3629) - 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)

Palme (3385) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
On tap @ Borefts 2013. A cloudy honey colored one with a small kinda bubbly white head. Th nose has a ones of fresh citrus plants, green hops, some sweet stickiness also here. Smells really inviting and a bit sweet. It’s definitely nit sweet in the taste. Balanced and on the hoppy side with grapefruit and citrus. Light oily on the mouthfeel and it has a just below average carbonation level. Really tasty this with a sharp grassy bitterness. Some fresh apricots comes lurking in the finish making it a bit fruity as well. The aftertaste has a light mouthdrying flavor. I quite like it. 28.09.2013
