Nicely done. A bit like Corsendonk Pale. Beautiful cloudy, translucent look to it.

Beautiful creamy off white head, a top a hazy yellow brown body. . . The aroma is a warm spring day in a rolling wheat field. . . Creamy mouth feel, with vanilla, lemon and wheaty flavours. Subtle lingering malts on the tongue, great brew.

A strong and complex offering from North America's best brewery. It is dominated by fruity overtones, a long lasting sweet palate, lots of carbonation and a high alcohol content. It is not my fabvorite of the Unibroue's, but it is a comp[lex full flavored beer that has a big punch of fruit and a long lasting pleasant palate. Try it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium gold color. Small head. Aroma is fruity, peach? Malty and fruity. Lots of flavors; yeasts, banana and cloves, vanilla?. It is quite carbonated and fizzy. Also so spice action as well. It hides the 9% alcohol well. A nice drinkable Belgian Strong Ale. Mouthfeel is soft and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a slight alcohol bite.

Quite opaque, few foam. Aroma of fresh cream and malt. Slightly acid, impression of hay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy yellow drink. Nice thick white head. Aroma nice but a bit to simple and faint. Similar to other Unibroue products yet different in mouthfeel and aftertaste. Lighter on body (due to carbonation?) so also is softer. Because of this it lost some distinctively and character. Good but not great. Thanks Doug!

Why is this art so freaking cool? I want posters. The Don De Dieu was another right hook from Unibroue. Very sweet for a Belgian, and there was a trace amount of bitter citrus strains mixed in with the alchohol. As always, this beer is complex but mild, alchoholic but smooth, full of character and full of flavor. Hooray to the brewery with connected eyebrows.

Not as good as other beers I’ve 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... you’d never know it is a 9%

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.
