De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva 2005

330mL single bottle, Greens, Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA.

I dunno, I guess it’s the style but this doesn’t do much for me.

Dirty dishwater (Dubbel) appearance, scant carbonation and a decent head, but it fades quickly (ABV?). A little lacing but not much. Plenty of sinus clearing acid in the aroma and the repetition is there in the taste. Highly acidic rather than sour and to me very little other character.

Reminds me very much of a rough scrumpy West Country cider without the charm.

The mouthfeel is OK and the alcohol is very well hidden, but this beer does nothing for me.
