3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dead ringer for the '10'. Luscious pour with cloudy yellow appearance and meringue head. Again I taste a wheat beer quality - its sweetish, herbal with mint and anise undertones. Fruity, but not hugely so, low bitterness level, low acidity, vanilla notes very smooth mouth-feel. I like the '10' and '11' but they are candy-like to some degree, and could benefit from a wider palate range. Alot of Unibroue beers seem to have this same, fortified wheat beer profile.

Bottle - Vintage 2002 - Stone fruit and honey. Clearish gold with a small white head. Sweet fruity honey notes, light minty notes and a long sweet finish. Great for the age.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015, by Sid. Never thought I’d get the chance! Surprisingly bright golden. Aroma of barley candy, honey, touch of musty cork. Held up amazingly well for 2002 vintage!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (750 ml). Acquired via trade. Clear golden with a small quickly collapsing white head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity and boozy with cardboard. Taste is mostly of cardboard along with light fruits and boozy notes. Medium body. Low carbonation. This beer was supposed to have been well stored but that’s doubtful considering how bad it was. Definitely past is prime.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the house. Thanks the TheBeerSommelier for this one. The last of the anniversary beers from Unibroue for me. This one is dead. No carb, oxidized to hell. Not much of an aroma. Flavor is cardboard and sherry. That’s pretty much what I expected but hoped it wouldn’t be, lol. I’m still surprised at how well these beers have held up. This is the only one I’ve had that has been totally flat, which is very impressive. Cheers!!!

Pours golden orangey hazy with plenty of floating sediment. The aroma has faded immensely, a bit of tropical fruit like Belgian yeast. The flavor has faded as well, a bit of citrus and malty lightly sweetened Belgian yeast.

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.

750ml bottle pours a hazy, dark yellow with a thin, white head. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose of tropical fruits, candy sugar, yeast. Flavor is sweet, tropical fruit, pineapple juice, nail polish. Chalky, medium bodied, sticky finish. Definitely mellowed out some.
