RD400F (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - OCT 4, 2012
Aroma: Peaches and cream, grapefruit, citrusy, coriander, a slight boozeyness and the signature Unibroue yeast. For a 5% beer this is quite aromatic and I’ve had higher ABV beers do much worse than this. Appearance: Cloudy gold color with a puffy, white head that fades to a bit of lacing. Taste: A bit on the watery side but it’s quite citrusy and the hop flavour comes out quite well. Slight caramel hints. Palate: On the thin side but it’s quite nice with nothing offensive or offputting. Sweet with a bitter then sour finish. Overall: Clean and refreshing and has quite the character. Very enjoyable and I thought I’d have a hard time replacing Hoegaarden for a cheap and refreshing beer. They’ve met their match!

Migmalt96 (6) - Trois-Pistoles, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016 does not count
Bonne blonde, selon moi plus goûteuse que les bières de plus grande brasserie. Elle ne se démarque par nécéssairement des autres blonde de microbrasserie.

fhoublon (459) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 18 janvier 2015. Bière blonde très effervescente, bulles moyennes. Mousse assez, col moyen blanc, crémeux et très persistant. Odeur de céréales, de levure et d’agrumes. Saveur de céréales fruitées (agrumes). Se boit bien, rafraichissante. A assez de corps pour ce style.

TET (2632) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2016
A murky, light yellow beer, a head is big and white. Strongly aromatic nose and quite unique. Strong flowerness, coriander, some honey and spices. Taste has flowers, spicyness of ginger and coriander. Medium bodied, strong carbonation, refreshning. Belgian ale with the strong flowers and spices. Decent.

Freaky_tiki (1047) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
Final bottle pull from 6-pack sampler at LCBO. Going through these 6 beers has been an interesting study - ahem, yes, cough, drinking beer is um yeah research - in the Unibroue stable. There’s a lot of sameness in their stable of beers (I.e. the yeast & spicing) that while is distinct & satisfying does get a little tired. This is the lesser of the six beers, but stil a decent refreshing beervv

Bottle. Has nice aromas of citrus. Pours a cloudy pale with white head. Has a light sour taste. Light to medium body with a somewhat creamy texture. A nice refreshing brew.
