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!

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Another yeasty, pale colored high carbonation beer by Unibroue. Pretty nice but nothing to write home about. Does not taste like a 9% beer. Rather light on the flavor and palate.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
Another fine effort from Unibroue. This easy drinking brew is slightly fruity, light, and very refreshing. Nice, cloudy, light golden color and snowy head. A worthy beer.

An approachable beer with a little too much sweetness for my taste. High alcohol is hidden. Not my favorite from this brewery.

hoorayforbeer (105) - Denton, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2003
Pours cloudy pale yellow with big white head. Very carbonated. Light and fruity smell and a very spicy fruity, grassy flavor. Clean light body with a fruity malt aftertaste.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2003
Pale gold, cloudy, fine head and lacing. Effervesent in the glass and on the sides of the tongue, paired with a strong malt down the middle. Bright, sweet, clean finish. Refreshing.

boto (1863) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2003
A somewhat cloudy straw yellow color. A fairly good copy of a Belgian Tripel. It has the same aroma & taste of banana that you would expect of this style. Not quite as good as Allagash, but still enjoyable. Very drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Pours a cloudy golden with thin fizzy head. Aroma of malted wheat, banana and clove. Tastes a lot like a thin weissbock. Has light fruity esthers, but not very much complexity. Goes down very smooth though, and has a very light alcohol burn in the finish.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Unibroue is rapidly becoming a favorite brewery. These folks just can't miss. Wonderful wheaty character and subtle alcohol warmth mingled in a tight-lipped forbidden dance (not sure where that came from, just transcribing last night's notes). Evervescent and complex, this beer is deceptively drinkable.
