Bottle. Hazy, pale orange / golden color with big white head. Lots of fruity aromas. Lemon, banana, green apples and dried apricot. Taste is very complex and well balanced. Sweet malts and honey. Sweet and sour fruits. Fresh and flowery hops. Smooth mouthfeel.

yespr (44811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours very lively with the classic and rediculous huge white De Dolles head. The beer is orange and almost clear. Aroma is fresh grapefruity hoppy. Flavour is sharp yeasty mixing in with a solid caramel malt sweetness and a decent bitterness in the finish. Straight forward yet powerful.

Ungstrup (37330) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
A very lively beer with a huge lasting off white head. The beer is a hazy orange. The aroma is spicy and yeasty with notes of corriander - I'm not able to pick out other spices. The flavor is sweet, spicy, malty with notes of yeast, corriander, and other spices. The mouthfeel is fine. I'll definatly have this again.

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with a huge white head. Fruity aroma with notes of spices and alcohol. Fruity flavour with notes of spices, wood and hops. Hoppy finish. Definitely not the best beer from De Dolle.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Another mad brew from "De Dolle". Compared to "Oerbier" this is both lighter and more dry. At the same time it has the rather unusual character of being both tart and bitter at the same time. A beer you only drink if you’ve got time for the head to settle. Lots of time... 140194

omhper (24980) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2002
Orange coloured with rich stable head. Very citrusy hoppy aroma. Rich and fruity, yet dryish. Complex with Aaricot finish.

Travlr (24319) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Thick, hazy orange brown with fluffy, cumulus cloud-like head. Aroma of a grassy meadow on a summer afternoon. Initial flavor is citrus, followed by pepper and malt. Nice bitter finish. Definitely worth seeking out.
