Just average in appearance - hazy yellow. Some citrus, apple, yeast and spicy notes. There is something about it that tastes artificially sweet. There are other beers from Unibroue that I enjoy much more.

Rerate: Amazing; practically a cross between a barleywine and a hefeweizen! Rich, complex, nice yeast/malt makes this a high-alcohol beer thatís actually drinkable in warm weather.

Not my favorite from Unibroue but still good. Light Belgian-style strong ale. Slightly funky esters (and not the good Belgian funk). Some bananas and pears. No real discernable hops. Medium body. Not bad by any account, just not my favorite from these guys.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Whoa! This packs a punch. Strong alcohol taste with thorough spice and fruit taste within. Maybe orange and clove or possibly coriander. Blond and somewhat cloudy like a witbier or hefe-weizen. Also very carbonated. HIGHLY recommend this one!

Iím half way through the bottle. Typical enjoyment from a UNIBROU. Be sure to use the right shaped glass! Lovely white head on a darker than normal wheat beer. Do I taste allspice? perhaps.

cloudy golden-yellowish color, with large white head that dissipates fairly quickly, wheaty with hints of orange and other citrus, as it warms alcohol becomes apparent, interesting beer.

Looks like a triple, smells like a wheat, but tastes very mellow and complex. A yeasty/grainy type brew...the typical greatness I expect from Unibroue.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Triumphant coriander seeds, wheat and orange peel display once again their cohesion in a Unibroue creation... Subtle bananas, apricots, lemons, peaches and white grapes are all dearly laid out on the usual dreamlike Unibroue mouthfeel...A plump pear note peers through once in a while... Yeast is once again everywhere on the flavor profile, perhaps too much so for my liking...
