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.

Ungstrup (29839) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2004
The aroma is sweet with notes of flowers and corriander. The color is an unclear dark yellow and it has a fine head. The flavor is very sweet fruity with notes of yeast and flowers. The end is bitter and dry, but then it turns into a honey sweetness that lingers. A very fresh beer - especially considering the 11% ABV.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head. Oxidized and very pleasant and sophisticated Sherry aroma. Rich body, fruity and pleasant again with an oxidized edge that really rounds it off pleasantly. Low in carbonation but high in alcohol. Yummy! Thanks Alex. 220909

omhper (19949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2003
Bottled. Pale orange and cloudy. Fruity nose (apricot and oranges). Lively and peppery with lively mouthfeel. Dryish and vinous, both pleasant and complex. Unibroue has so many blond beers it's getting hard to distinguish them, but this one is excellent regardless.

Cloudy amber beer. Fruity zingy malt nose - nice! Light dry palate. Low carbonation. Like a Belgian Tripel but stronger and less of that sweet malt. More fruit before an aniseed alcohol finish. Typically eclectic Unibroue and quite drinkable.

fiulijn (15234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 2009-09-22, corked bottle, dated 10-10-2002, 7 years old, 7-4-8-3-15=37
Hazy deep blond color, poor head retention. Good aroma, malty and with some honey. The body strength and the carbonation are very good, even after so many years; dry malt flavor, evident alcohol warmth, correct bitterness. Interesting and pleasant; it kept up very well with the age.

2003-07-31, corked bottle, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy blond color, big head. Tripel aroma, malty, dry, spicy, oranges. The flavor improves while oxydizing; round, malty, some fruitness, well balanced (sweetness and bitterness; low alcohol perception). Another good one by Unibroue, but just slightly different from the others.

harrisoni (14120) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle at LCRBM3. Cloudy orange. It has some mellow vanilla, bit of mint too. Murray mints. Some fruit. Banana. Not that good.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Aged 5 years. Hazy amber with a hint of calvados. Lean, but with a hoppy/perfumey/yeasty character. Well-rounded. This has held up very well, even gained a bit in terms of balance. Ar 8 Ap 3 F 8 P 5 O 17 = 4.1

Original rating (Jan 24, 2003): Cloudy yellow. Creamy, peachy, peppery. Strong alcohol and yeast presence. Dry herbal hops. Very complex - my vocabulary fails me but I’m not worried - I will be re-sampling this one! Ar 7 Ap 4 F 9 P 4 O 17 = 4.1
