Pours a somewhat hazy blonde color. Medium white head that dissipates quickly. Typically yeasty in aroma with definate hints of banana, and ethanol. It smells metallic to me also. Highly carbonated, and sweet. Definate fruit and spice, although mellower than La Fin Du Monde. High in alcohol content, but is hidden fairly well. Smooth, with a sweet finish.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Yellow and hazy! Donít know why this is better or worst than any other Unibroue, except that it is slightly lighter. Yeasty, bready, has some spice, but pretty light compared to many Unibroue products. Slighty fruity(bananas, pineapple, pears), spices such as very light coliander and maze. Sweet sugar flavors dominate. Good beer. Sweet finish.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Appearance was golden, slightly cloudy with quickly dissapating head and lace. It had a strong sweet, malty and yeasty nose with a very similar taste followed by a bitter alcoholic flavor and aftertaste. It was enjoyable but I like the Trois Pistoles better. (Not really fair to compare the two at the same sitting)

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Pale white/gold like a Blegian white. Foamy white head, diminished. Like other Unibroue beers, Blanche de Chambly, Fin du Monde. Smells of citrus, bubble gum/banana, coriander, and spices. Tastes mostly the same as it smells, bubble gum, lemons, and spice. Very nice rounded beer but too much like the others.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 Pours a cloudy yellow with a slight head. Plenty of carbonation. Pleasant peachy aroma. Malty flavor with a slight alcohol burn. This is nice and pleasantly drinkable.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Hazy wheat color with a short lasting white head. Citrisy aroma. Light refreshing flavor, with hints of wheat, malt, and fruit. Quite good, will drink again.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: This brew pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow color with a thick white head. Fair lacing. Sugary sweet malt and fruit in the nose. Medium body with a nice blend of malt, citrus (mostly lemon) and yeast flavors. The alcohol is nowhere to be found. The finish is fruity with a touch of malt. Pretty good overall.

Golden orange color, big suddsy white head settles fast with good lace. Spicey citrus aroma with light hints of yeast. Flavor was initialy spicey with more citrus fruit flavors and a sweetness like white grapes that have just a little bit of tartness. These initial flavors faded into a slighty yeasty phenolic taste. Mouth feel was quite lively with carbanation and spice. The after taste calmed down the palate with a nice slightly sweet malt smoothness.
