Brewers Description of this Tart Summer Beer:
“A delightful summer ale for easy sipping and a classic Belgian yard game for easy enjoyment, Rolle Bolle is how we roll. Brewed with monk fruit and soursop, this beer pours a brilliant blonde, with a fluffy, white head. Earthy and tropical tones carry the aroma and the taste follows accordingly. Rolle Bolle’s hint of tartness is backed with the citrus bite of Cascade and Centennial hops. Oats add some creaminess to the mouthfeel, and it finishes dry and clean. Time to get in the yard, crack a bottle and start rolling. ”Our Review:
New Belgium Brewing obviously set out to craft a unique identifiable tart summer beer in a seasonal market dominated by lagers. Tasting Rolle Bolle reveals they were successful. This faded-orange beer produces a fluffy three-finger head and fragrant aroma laced with floral, lemon grass, and pepper notes noticeable soon after the cap is lifted. A moderately carbonated tart pull introduces a mild general tropical fruitness. Building quickly, a strong grapefruit-like tartness emerges overshadowing the mild hops. The dry finish has a slight bready characteristic.
Rolle Bolle tart summer beer is easily one of the more puckering seasonal beers available. This radically tart fruity beer will unquestionably find a loyal following.
