The Duysters Brewery may well be the smallest commercial brewery in Belgium - annual production of both its beers is only about 650 cases. Loterbol is a crisp blonde ale that is very tasty and mightily satisfying. It drinks much stronger than its 6.8% alcohol by volume would suggest, and tastes a little spicy, though no spices are used in the brewing. The exotic palate of this beer comes from the unique strain of yeast. Duysters Brewery flourishes in the shadow of one of the worlds largest breweries, Interbrew, in the nearby town of Leuven. But there is no mistaking this exquisite hand-crafted brew for the mass-product of the nearby beer factory. Loterbol is a Flemish word for a fool or prankster, an allusion to the deceptive smoothness and drinkability of this beer. Selected as one of the fifty best beers in the world by Men's Journal magazine, July 2005.

Bosskie (870) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Warm orange brown beer, opaque, with a big white bubbly head. Smell is fruity caramel with pears and apples over a lightly sour background. Some leather and citrus. Alcoholic astringency. Taste is sour bitter with a hint of heavy sweetness. Bitter finish with pungent astringency. Not my cup of tea.

corkyrory66 (1865) - BELGIUM - APR 18, 2016
Bire blonde refermente dun niveau abv de 8 %. Couleur dor soutenu brillant, la clart nette. Bulles fines, partout, monte assez lente. Superbe. Mousse blanche trs crmeuse, stable 4 mm. Magnifique. Armes de malt cara, pointe dherbes douces, zeste dorange, pointe de genivre. 1re bouche souple veloute, lentre sur malt et herbes, pointe dortie. Arrire-bouche quilibre, assez complexe, amertume fine. 2me avec un trs beau malt, des pices vertes, ciboulette. Arrire-bouche assez dense, longue. 3me la trs belle texture, beau malt, mais la pointe herbace devient fatigante... Arrire-bouche jolie. Longueur agrable, mais un peu linaire. Jambes fines. Levure solide, pice, belle ligne. Alcool correct, il tient lensemble, mais ne corrige pas lharmonie. Finale avec une belle amertume. CONCLUSION: bire intressante, avec une belle texture, mais dont le ct herbeux se marque trop souvent. Elle en devient rptitive sur la longueur, et ceci la pnalise.
