Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2003
Yellow and fizzy, but decent, so don't be fooled by the appearance. Aroma hinted of yeast and oranges and sure enough that is the taste. A nice slight hops afterkick. A worthwhile Belgian.

Panzuriel (1281) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Nice orangey yellow liquid somewhat hazy, fine head. Nice floral hops notes in the aroma. Nice flavor but somewhat weak. Fruit flavors with a nice hops kick. Good mouthfeel.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2003
Yeast and alcohol also grapes nose. Big frothy head, orange color, liveley carbonation. Yeasty orange, slightly bitter but also vanilla tste. Pricks, is peppery but has a nice mouthfeel. Reminds me a lot of a wheat beer.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2004 This beer looks great in the glass! It pours with a thick meringue-like head which reminds me a lot of Duvel’s head. It’s very sparkly, with tons of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Bready, yeasty aroma with bright banana and clove notes. Smells like a German hefe but with more yeast. Rich flavor and mouthfeel. Lemon, yeast, and white bread. The alcohol is evident in the finish.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2003 Probably the best of Unibroue I have had to date. Nice clove-bubble gum aroma. Light - even head. Champagne color cloudy appearance. Alcohol hidden extremely well - very smooth - yet complex. Improves as it warms to a candy-like sweetness. Overall - excellent!

Long lasting white head on lightly hazy golden body. Aroma is cloves, spices(cardamom or coriander, I'm not that familiar to be able to indentify them, but I think it's one of them, but I could be wrong on both accounts). Anyway, Yeast aroma as well as the wheat malts are also present as well as some citrusy aromas. And unfortunately, a little chloraseptic in this bottle which is the first time I've encountered this after numerous bottles I haven't rated before so I won't ding it. Flavors are of wheat malt, clove, alcohol, spices, not too much citrus in the flavor with a dry finish. Very well balanced with a wheat malt and vanilla aftertaste. Heavily carbonated like a tripel should be and lighter body due to higher carbonation. Very nice smooth mouthfeel and warming alcohol. Very easily drinkable to get myself in trouble. Unfortunately not my favorite Unibroue product, but very well made.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2003
This beer poured a cloudy straw color and formed a bubbly white head. An aroma of citrus, yeasts and spices. Some carbonation is present. A flavor of spice with some bready elements. The finish is a touch tart and reflects some of the alcohol present. A good beer for this style.

Trappist (284) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Some citrus note, and the alcohol was hidden nicely, very smooth and huge foamy head. I have yet to be let down by Unibroue!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2003
Very unique. Huge head with great lacing. Aroma of fruit and hops with a strong lemon presence. Flavour was extremely citrusy which hid the strong ABV. Finish was sour and bitter but refreshing.

Yummy beer! Wonderful nose, like orange. Taste is similar. Good beer, light aftertaste. Another winner from Unibroue!
