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 (1890) - 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.

Suttree (5255) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2003
A tale of two glasses. I poured half in a goblet, thinking that the Bride was going to drink the other half. It was clear, finely carbonated, and a fruity (banana) flavor and crisp, dry finish. The bride decided she didn't want any, so I poured the rest. this glass was cloudy, a much fuller flavor and messier finish. What a difference the sediment makes.

Unibroue knows how to do it right. This is like a cloudier version of its wonderful Fin du Monde. Both are perfectly brewed in the true Belgian style.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Glowing golden color. Light, crisp, and champagne-like on the palate. After the pour you can hear the crisp cracking sound of the bubbles. Dry finish.
