3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On the back of the bottle, there is a date stamped that says "Best before 09-20-15."
I poured this into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice three finger white foamy head that lasts for a good two minutes. As the head starts to die a bit, the lacing appears to be somewhat foamy and thick. The carbonation seems to roll throughout the body along with some sediment, to me, its actually kinda fun to watch.
The smell starts off with a nice lemon based wheat. It wants to be sharp as I notice some assault in my nose but ends up settling a bit and lets some other citrus aspects come out such as grapefruit, and mango.
The taste is sweet and clean with the wheat combining nicely with the citrus aspects of the beer. There is a decent sweet wheat and slightly citrus aftertaste that ends up leading to a nice dry sort of wheat-like finish.
On the palate, it sits about a medium to almost heavy. The bottle says 9% and I think it could be there, perhaps. However, I will admit, there seems to be a slight sessionable aspect to this beer. The carbonation seems to be fairly smooth and filling.
Overall, in my opinion, this is a good Belgian strong pale ale. Though, I don’t get as many Belgian spices I normally get in most BSPA’s, the wheat aspect seems to fill that desire and makes this well worthy of having again.

Heavy citrus in everything. It’s like I’m drinking a mimosa, but the kind made for battle. ;-)

ANOTHER superior offeriing from Unibroue. Pours out hazy straw-yellow with lacy white head. Was PLEASANTLY surprised as thick as this beer appeared in the snifter (isn’t that the ONLY way to drink great beers?) that it was lighter than expected but did NOT hold back on any flavor. VERY reminicent of a farmhouse ale (only not QUITE as light or hoppy)
This brewery is CONSTANTLY amazing me and I recommend them often!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Notes from 11/7/2013
A - 4 - Nice golden amber cloudy color with a 2 finger white head that dissipates down to a very thick (still 1 finger) head of foam that leaves really good lacing on the glass. bottle looks like a standard Unibroue bottle. Very nice overall.
Aroma - 8 - Nice peach and banana smell. Some bubblegum in there too. Very sickeningly sweet, but balanced out by some bready and peppery tones.
T - 8 - Same peach, banana notes come out in the taste. Bubblegum. Bread. White pepper. Maybe a little bit of cinnamon? Tastes really good for a Belgian Pale Ale which is definitely not my favorite kind of beer.
M/Palate - 4 - Medium mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is bready belgian yeast.
O - 16/20 - Great beer. Very smooth.

Blonde, darker than the usual as the triple wheat suggest. Malty, citrus taste. Not full bodied so not my fav. 6/10

12 oz bottle purchased at Hy-Vee Muscatine ($3) best by 12-13-14. Orange and hazy appearance with a fully diminishing, average white head, light sediment and active carbonation. Interesting aroma, bready malts, funky cheese?!, fruity esters, light barnyard, herbs and spices. Similar flavor, yeasty, malty, light fruity, mild sweetness, mild herbs/spices and light earthy bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty fun to drink.
