Rolle Bolle is a decent summertime beer....reminds me of some of the European Radlers. The beer poured a pale yellow with thin white head that is leaving some lacing. The scent carried faint citrus and Belgium zing. The taste was floral and citrus with the typical New Belgium finish. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall it was good but not so great I'd go out of my way to have it again.

This beer is something that grew on me as I drank it. I wasn't quite ready for the sour taste but after a few sips I started to enjoy the flavor more. It's fair that it "soursop" and "monkfruit" on the label. I should have read that before I sipped. Really though, it's a good seasonal beer. I's be thoughtful about what I'd pair it with and I'd probably drink it again although there are many other beers I'd choose first.

A: A slightly hazy pale golden beer with a white head made of tiny bubbles that leave a fine lacing on the glass.

S: A medium-strong citrus hops blending with a fruity aroma that starts off almost smelling like spicy German hops but then becomes more clearly an herbal fruitiness with a spicy quality.

T: There is a medium hops bitterness with a fruity, herbal sort of a bitterness backing that up. There is a lime zest sort of character to the fruit along with a bitter herbal tea. There is some citrus hops blending in there as well. The malt is mild bringing very little sweetness giving a balance that is moderately bitter. The finish is very dry with a lingering citrus peel and herbal bitterness.

M: A medium-light bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation.

O: A bitter Belgian Pale that has a fair amount of citrus hops flavor along with a bitter herbal and unusual citrusy, fruit component. A refreshing beer for the Summer that has a lot going on.

3.6/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Pale straw yellow with foamy, clingy, stark white head.

Smell: Wheat, apples, lemon, pepper, some zest.

Taste: Crackery and peppery with overtones of hay and lemon. Very spicy and bitter, distractingy so as it steals from the flavor profile. Tart aftertaste, which I appreciate.

Feel: Light body wih crisp carbonation. Finish is very dry.

Overall: No idea what the soursop and monkfruit and contributing, and I am not sure about how Belgian this is. Seems more like a very light bodied but very bitter Pilsner, with a splash of fruit and tartness.
