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, I’m from Wisconsin). Maybe a fondue?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
