dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2002
One of the best beers out there. Sparkling golden colour with very resistant white lacy head. Rich malty aroma with a hint of spice. Flavour is complex and the beer is super smooth for the complexity.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2002
Beautiful cloudy golden color with a nice white lace and a very floral/citrusy aroma. Sweet fruity taste with hints of some spice. Not there best, but still an excellent beer.

this beer is almost freakishly yellow-golden...probably one of the strangest colors iíve ever seen in a beer. cloudy like a Hefe, has the nose of a hefe, flavors are bubblegummy like a trappist, not that iím saying this is on par with chimay and orval, but still pretty tasty. not much of a head on this brew either..just a fuzzy little film over the surface...just noticed that the bubblegummy flavors fade into fruity flavors as this beer warms

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Hazy yellow, medium head, nose like a hefeweizen. Tried three Unibroues today, and they were all similar in nose. This tastes more fruity and much less spicy than La Fin du Monde, with a medium body and just a hint of alcohol in the fruity finish. Pretty nice stuff.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2002
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.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2002
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.

Spicy fruity aroma, yeasty fruity smokey flavor, strong alcohol taste.

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.

TheBeerGod (5183) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2002
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!

woodcreek (8) - CANADA - JUL 19, 2002 does not count
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.
