duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2002
Smells uncannily like stale apple juice that has been sitting in the sun for a couple of hours. sweet with too much alcohol showing, a horrible example of the style, but i’m not sure what the style actually is (Belgian Tripel? Tripel Wit? who bloody knows), probably one of Unibroues worst. Horrible.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Blind nosing reveals a very weizenbock/tripel aroma and strong yeast profile. Soft billowy head that rises from the bottles neck after letting it set for 5 minutes. Pours a cloudy, soft, pear juice color. Perfect amout of effervescence and a very malty mouthfeel. A difficult beer to catagorize, but still a wonderful offering from a fine Canadian brewery.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 The color is cloudy yellow and the head is modest. Floral, fruity aroma. Banana. Very nice, interesting brew from Unibroue. Brewed with wheat but very strong. The 9% ABV is actually hidden quite nicely. Fruity and very tasty. Malty, but not too sweet. Good character. Another great brew from Unibroue. Crisp, strong and well balanced. Highly recommened.

delacerveza (166) - Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2002
LOVED the hazy apricot color. the lacy head was just a kiss of white on top of the haze. aroma was rather faint, light notes of alcohol and...peaches? definitely a light peachy tang to the taste and no hoppiness at all. pretty good, too bad i can only have one or two though.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2003 Humm, A little disapointment. But that's problably because I was expecting a lot of this one because it was from Unibroue. Taste is good, after-taste isn't.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 21, 2002
cloudy orange colour, few head, hazelnut, malt and alcohol with notes of banana, sweet and a litlle bit heavy at the end of the bottle.
