It’s time to shed that sweater and gear up for some friendly backyard bowling competition. New Belgium Brewing has revealed its summertime seasonal, a playful brew called Rolle Bolle Ale. The beer, available through September, is named after a favorite Belgian past time best played with two hands, one preferably holding a beer.
Rolle Bolle Ale is brewed with monk fruit and soursop, pouring as a blonde. It offers both earthy and tropical tones, following up tartness with the citrus of Cascade and Centennial hops. Oats bring creaminess to the mouthfeel, and it finishes dry and clean.
“Rolle Bolle is a session beer that will surely makes its way into backyards and festivals all season long,” says New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “The entire recipe celebrates the lighter desires of summertime living.”
Rolle Bolle is 5.2 percent ABV, available in 12 oz. and on draft in most New Belgium markets.
