COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launched to celebrate Unibroue's 11th Anniversary, 11 has a rich aroma reminiscent of ripe fruit and fig, and is accompanied by a delicate spicy after note. The taste is complex and its body more than generous. This unique strong beer is warm and intriguing whilst remaining smooth and delicate. With its 11% Alcohol, "11" is the highest alcohol content beer in Quebec. Produced in limited quantity and sold for a very minimal price for its quality, only about 6000 cases of this special brew will be sold.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Wild and rocky head at first; becomes more tame with time. Hazy yellow with an orange glow. Very fresh, yeasty nose. Wonderful mouthfeel; excellent presence. Complex, spicy and extremely balanced. Throat warming, but it doesn't have a sharp alcohol presence; it is soft and well hidden. Very aromatic, with wild flowers, lemon, and maybe even a touch of mint. Very tasty!

Ernest (6185) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2003
Served at BJ’s winter warmer fest 2003. Diminishing head. Hazy light yellow, dense tiny particles, presumably bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs), moderately hoppy (lemon, flowers), moderately malty (cookie, light bread), with notes of pineapple, coriander, honey, orange, etc., light note of alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This is the best Unibroue creation I’ve had by far, and usually I’m not that wild about ’em. Very big and complex nose, expertly hidden alcohol, beautiful flavor balance for the style, sheesh...

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Hazy golden color with a moderate white head. Fruity and yeasty aromas with strawberry, peach and yeast dominating. Wonderfully full in palate while not being too heavy. Wheaty, spicy and fruity flavors with a nice, clean finish. Only indicationhs of high alcohol content are warming effects and mild drunkenness. Very nice.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Nice nose of tropical fruit and coriander. Aggresive carbonation that rivals champagne. Wonderful complex fruit punch flavors intertwined with candy sugar. Quick sweet airy finish. Alcohol is hidden well.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2003
A full white head with a golden-orange body. Light, fruity aroma. Taste of soft and sweet orange and spice. Very little alcohol burn for a Belgian with 11%. Very impressed!

argo0 (11442) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Cloudy golden body topped by a thick off-white head. Aroma is orange/lemon, sweet and spicy, also some banana esters. Taste is fairly sweet, orange, spicy, and surprisingly enough, light -- the pleasant alcohol burn in the finish is the only indication of the high alcohol.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Hazy light golden color with a frothy white head. Light playful aroma. Wafts of pineapple, lemon, wheat and corriander. Powerful triple flavors of wheat, and light fruit. Warming and quite unassuming alcohol. Soft and silky in mouthfeel. Very drinkable and flavorful.

jazz88 (2550) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2002
Bottle. Golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is bright, orange and spicy. Candy and spice flavors. The alcohol shows it cards in this beer.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2002
Very light yellow color, white head. Mild wheat aroma with dry spiciness, suggestive of coriander, yet sweetness too. Somewhat of a weak body. Disappointing, frankly (having had the Unibroue 10).

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2002
This was given to me fairly new, so I think that this will gain in quality over the next year or 2. Strong apricot, peach, fruit flavors, with some nice spices too. the only fault is the apparent alcohol that I would hope will mellow over the year(s). fine quality.
