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 Iíve 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... youíd 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.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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, Iím from Wisconsin). Maybe a fondue?
