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...

What a great beer. Strong in alcohol and so sweet. A really special white beer.

rerate 6/26 - I gotta say, this is a good summer beverage, though Iím not a huge fan of wheat beers. The head is relatively small and irrelevant, uncharacteristically. The color is on the golden side. Flavors of yeast, anise, pears, that sweet/tart taste common to the style. Clean finish. Not bad, a warm weather thirst quencher that will get you drunk if you have too many, but not one of my favorite Unibroues.

My slight disaapointment in this beer arises because of the likes of Maudite, Trois Pistoles and 10. This beer lacks the body and peppery finish that seems to be inherent in the others. Thin yellow custard appearance with a large head on the pour that quickly diminishes. Bready and citrusy aromas, though not as pronounced as I would like. Cloying bitterness. BTW whatís with the twist offs? I realize this is a minor issue but for some strange reason it really pisses me off!
