Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color with a fizzy and fast disappearing head-well carbonated. Fruity aroma, apple and apricot with a bready note. Mildly tangy and soft on the tongue with citrus, vanilla and alcohol flavors and a medium sweet finish. Nice flavor but a bit boozy IMO.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2003
Light yellow-orange hazy colour, not much of a head. Aroma of apple and pears with the Unibroue signature smell. The taste was a little boring, alcoholic. A bit like tonic water or ginger ale. Dissapointing in the light of Unibroue's other great beers. Bottle.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Lighter yellow, some haze, white head diminishes quickly. Fruity aroma of citrus and apple along with some yeast. Flavor was sweet and fruity, some yeast again. Pretty crisp but mine seemed a bit flat. Was OK, but there are defintely better Unibroue beers out there.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Pale yellow in color. White head quickly fades. Lots of bubbles. Did not detect anything remarkable about the aroma. Same with the taste. A good Belgian but not a great one.

Ungstrup (32164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of peach, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge but fast disappering head. The flavor is extremely sweet - too sweet for my taste. With strong notes of peaches, apples, oranges, alcohol, and corriander. It ends on a combination of lemon and corriander with the sweetness lingering. An OK beer, but a bit too much alcohol and a little too sweet. The flavors though are magnificent. Thanks to Alex (Fiulijn) for trading this with me.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Clear golden ale (function of temperature?), pours a creamy head that quickly fades; no lace. Taste reminds me of champagne/white wine: alcohol, acid, apples, flower, citrus tang. Minimal barley malt, good wheat, dry (not sweet)

RichardGretton (4522) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Light blonde Belgian style beer, with a fruity Belgian beer aroma. The flavour is strong but lacking any real quality. Overall a basic Belgian style beer, slightly overrated.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2003
cloudy/hazy orange but still a tad see through...froth on top with a solid halo...yeasty and banana aromas..maybe even some coriander and white grape...spritzy mouthfeel with the usual yeasty, spicy, banana flavors...decent.

Cloudy copper color with a white head. Aroma of lemon, peach and grape. Nice crisp feel, with yeast, citris and grape flavors.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Absolutely beautiful looking beer...cloudy (almost opaque) orange color with a perfect sized bright white head. The aroma was full of vegetable (maybe tomato juice) tones and sweet banana, lemon, and yeasty tones. The flavor was a little more rounded with a pleasant fruity character...lemon, apricot, peach, and banana...still a little vegetable throughout. The feel was rather soft, but spritzy.
