Not as good as other beers Ive had from Unibroue, but still a standout -- interestingly yeasty with a nice fizz, and a good aftertaste

I definitely prefer the DON more than La Fin du Monde. Flavours of yeast and finish of bananas but never overpowering... youd never know it is a 9%

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2002
Not as good as 3 Pistoles, but a solid belgian style none the less. Very light bodied. Fizzy and quite yeasty. Alcohol seems well masked as first, but then comes around at the bottom of the glass. This brewery is amazing, let me just say that. Go Canada.

Straw colored, with a bit of fruit in the nose and taste. It was a little sour for me and not my favorite.

As a side note: Unibroue may have the most epic labels, and this is no exception. As for the beer, it is pale, much like cloudy lemonade. Has a certain pop and fizz texture. A straw, grass taste. Sharp bitter acidic flavor rolls on the side of the tongue and mellows into a mild warm alcohol swarthing. Fairly straightforward in presentation. Finishes with a fruit skin flavor- like chewing on an orange peel. Not wholy unplesant or plesant just confounding.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 Don de Doodo. No really this wasn't a bad beer, but it had a strong alcohol taste which I do not like too much.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2002
Pours a cloudy, golden straw color with a big white, rocky head. Strong aroma of fruits, yeast, and spices that you can smell a good ways from the glass. Very sweet and spicy flavor, with a long sweet finish. This is easily drinkable, and the alcohol does not show up in the taste. Unibroue consistently makes some of the best Belgian ales that are not really Belgian.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2002
Hazy golden color with a tallish off white head. Aroma of orange peels and corrinder. Smooth start, with a sharp finish. A definate strong golden triple belgian ale maybe. Lacks a bit of body, but the flavor more than make up for that small shortcoming. As this one warms, it seems to lose some of its better qualities and gets a bit sticky sweet and the aroma is more representative of a malt liquor. Doses of cool 6 oz. samples would be outstanding with with some dry sharp cheeses (Yes, Im from Wisconsin). Maybe a fondue?

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2002
Hazy golden yellow hue. Big clean white head. Banana and spice nose. Sour and spicy, white pepper, orange peel, citrus, clean and crisp yeasty finish. Terribly drinkable, a great brew from Unibroue.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2002
Everything about this beer is strong. The initial aroma is overpowering, and the flavor is initially too much for one (like myself) to handle. It does grow on you though, and it has a nice aftertaste.
