Wow. Curiously fruity, in that I could not put a name to the assertive fruit aroma. Apricot? Alcohol kick is well balanced. A little sweet at the finish.

Wheat beer but with twice the alcohol! Great flavors and aroma.. very unusual and innovative

A very nice beer. Unusual in it’s style. Citrusy and wheaty.

I was expecting better. I found it quite like La Fin Du Monde only more spritzy.

fraternie (823) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2001
Straw colored body, a citrusy and almost wheaty flavor. As usual with Unibroue beers, excellent balance at the end. Moderate hop flavor. A very good ale.

joet (2177) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 22, 2001
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Yeasty, citrus nose that doesn’t bloom much as it warms. Good color and stable small-medium head. It’s fairly effervescent with a spicy finish but there’s not much malt complexity here.

Cloudy, tangy, spicy, fruity, yeasty... another winner from Unibroue, though i found it a step below La fin du monde and trois pistoles.

Indra (2621) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 28, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2003 Intriguing aroma, with notes of banana, faint lemon, cloves, vanilla, floral, spicy hops and malt sweetness. Medium golden in color, opaque (bottle conditioned) with a very ample and long-lasting head. Flavor is lightly tart and fruity, spicy, yeasty and sweet. Aftertaste is malty and has some pleasant yeast esters. Body is medium-full and palate is very creamy and smooth. This is an interesting and enjoyable beer.

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2001
Smooth taste with a hint of citrus. Another fine effort from Unibroue.

Like a supercharged Blanche de Chambly. Wheaty at first with a very strong finish.
