Loterbol is a crisp blonde ale that is very tasty and mightily satisfying. 'Loterbol' is a Flemish word for a fool or prankster, an allusion to the deceptive smoothness and drinkability of this beer.

Vintage bottle at Kulminator, where it was sold as a dry-hopped version with Orval yeast, which is a separate entry here; however, since the label mentions an ABV of 6.8% and there is no mention at all of Orval yeast being used, I cannot but assume it is the Loterbol 6 version, so I have no other choice than to put my rating under this entry. Very thick, coarse, papery, snow white, rocky and stable head over a lightly hazy golden blonde beer, more cloudy with deposit as expected. Aroma of straw, white bread, soapy wheat, field flowers, dried banana, lemon blossom, wet leather and damp hay. Crisp fruity onset, dried apricot and redcurrant, dryish with medium carbonation, bready pale malt sweetishness in the middle but still remaining on the dry side, floral and grassy, aromatic noble hop bitterness in the finish with lingering malt juiciness. I get a slight hint of onsetting Brettification so it may still be that other limited version, but I have no means to be one hundred percent sure - quite frustrating, actually, Duysters should have indicated the difference more clearly!

Clear pale blond beer, very creamy solid white head, very stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: citrus, grassy, bit sweet, some almonds, marzipan. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, little metallic, sourish touch, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: very bitter, bit soapy, metallic, vegetal touch, bitter finish.

Een blond bier met weinig smaak aan, veel zullen dit kunnen drinken, maar weinigen zullen zeggen dat het enorm lekker is denk ik.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Abused green 75cl bottle. Fading on the label told me this should be light -struck but I gave it a go. I suspect it was 2-3 years old. Poured a cloudy golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, treacle and yeast. Similar flavours with alcohol, black pepper, caramel, treacle and a lingering alcohol hum. Moderate carbonation. Quite smooth with a chewy mouth-feel. This stood up remarkably well given the storage conditions.

bierwabbe (9) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2011 does not count
Perhaps I had a bad bottle of Loterbol or something, but this was mightily disappointing. Diacetyl-buttery, sweet and cloyingly syrupy, close to no head at all, and metallic on the nose. Quite possibly the worst Belgian I have ever tried -- and as I have tried in excess of 200, thats saying quite a lot.

[email protected] (thanks Frank!). Slightly hazy golden colour, small white creamy head. Aroma is bready malts, some fruits, wood, yeast and mild sugary sweetness. Flavour is fruits, some yeast, sweet malts as well as mild spices and herbs. Lets the alcohol through quite well.

Bottle from Bier Paradijs. Golden amber with huge head. Nose of malts, fruits, bitter. Taste of caramel, toffee, ginger, hops and lots of bitter. Quite nice. Goes down very well.
