Beer Review – New Belgium Rolled Bolle

image

When I have the chance to get out of town, either for work or play, I make it my business to find some local brew I might not otherwise be able to sample.  During a recent family trip to South Carolina I tried a variety of beers, some from the area, others not so much.  In this case, I grabbed a six of New Belgium’s new seasonal, Rolle Bolle. I live in Jersey, and it is ashame that New Belgium does not have distribution there yet.  We can keep hoping though.  So, I drove to South Carolina to get a Colorado brew.  I have done crazier things!

Just as a fun side note, Rolle Bolle autocorrects to Rolled Volleyball. 

This beer pours a straw yellow with a fluffy white head Atlanta about one finger.  Mine had a slight chill haze which cleared up as it warmed. 

There is not much on the nose.   A slight sweetness, no hop aroma at all, maybe getting a little bit of fruit aromas from the monkfruit and soursop, although I have no idea what they are so I can’t place them specifically.

The taste is light, very ‘belgium’ in its overall profile.  The web description says it has a little bite on the finish, and I would agree.  Nothing offensive, but it is present.  The beer is softly carbonated and easy on the pallet. At 5.5% abv it is not technically seasonable (I personally think you need to be under 5%) but it is easy enough that you could drink a few.

Overall a good, but unremarkable beer from New Belgium.  They bill it as the perfect beer to enjoy during a lawn game, and I think that would indeed work.  Worth a try if it is in your area, and I am glad I picked it up, although I wouldn’t recommend driving 5 states away just to grab one!
