3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Pale straw color, fluffy white head that won't subside, nicely carbonated. Little aroma with only a hint of spice. Very light body, almost watered down. Has that characteristic green apple / grape skin Unibroue taste that sneaks up on you after you're half finished. Overall a decent boring beer that lacks body and flavor. Rerate 9/18/2004 I got a bottle of this in trade from Radiomgb straight from Canada. Tastes much better than the stuff we can get in Southern California, it's lost the green apple/ grape skin thing. However, it does still retain some of the aforementioned wateriness. The spice is a bit more prevelent as well, but not near enough for my taste.

I was expecting more from this brew since it is from Unibroue. Not as complex as it should have been.

Pours a very pale, yellowish straw color with a good, lingering white head. The aroma is wheaty with a bit of spices and yeast. The flavor is a little weak, I really only detect just hints of any spices. The finish is crisp with a touch of lingering wheat flavors. Not much going on with this beer, but still refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
What is this? The bottle I had tasted more like a really weak sparkling wine than beer. Light golden color with fizzy carb and miniscule white head. Flavor was slightly sweet with very suble fruit flavor. Didn't really taste at all like beer to me. Watery mouthfeel with dry finish. Strange.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was very peachy with some salty tones. The flavor was similar to the aroma, but had a more acidic character. Easy going...a tad bit watery. Perfect as a summer brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs, dough), lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon), with light notes of orange peel and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, short. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Aroma is a bit yeast-heavy and somewhat on the dull side (I like this style to be bright and spicy), and it has that telltale Unibroue super-short finish (after you swallow, it's as if you haven't been drinking anything at all).

Light looking golden amber color.
Some acidity and I didn't like the palate feel.
Smooth tasting, average beer that doesn't have alot of flavor.
