4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Hazy, yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of tangerine, lemon zest, and ginger. Taste is lightly tart with notes of lemon and orange zest and is complimented with Belgian yeast, ginger, and white pepper. The clean citrus lifts any lingering bitterness from the palate. Very nicely done.

Pours with an enormous head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. Flavor is sweet brandy. Only knock is the metallic aftertaste. Very good.

An incredibly strong ABV beer for its light, fruity taste. As an IPA drinker, this beer provides the buzz without the heavy taste.

En bouche c’est bien malté,levure typique d’Unibroue notes de bananes levure et de poivre, légé aspect d’acidité rappelant la pomme verte.Peut pétillante mais très facile a boire, belle chaleur d’alcool en final. belle bière très efficace.

"the nose and flavor are dominated by a soft yeastiness, and a not so soft spice & clove presence. tight carbonation, nice mouthfeel, slightly alcoholic finish. overall, it’s another good, but not great entry. worth a try. comparable to a strong weizen or good dunkelwizen minus the maltiness."

Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light orange, with a medium fluffy white head that fades quickly, leaving good lacing. Nose is fruit, cloves, bananas. Taste is typical Belgian-fruit, malt, and that peppery Unibroue finish. Delicious.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Pours a dark orange color. Bit cloudy. Forms a solid thin bubbled white head that dissipates quickly leaving very few spotty lacings
S: Very fruity and nutty. Strong notes of grapes, vanilla, toffee, caramel malts and nuts. Spicy and a bit peppery too: Unibroue trademark. Flowery hops in the end which is also a bit booze
T: Sweet upfront. Strong Belgian character. Very spice and complex. As suggested by the nose, strong notes of grapes, vanilla, toffee, caramel malts and nuts. In overall, a sweet and malty beer. Yeasts profile is Belgian, as expected. Mild hoppy bitterness in the very end
M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Malty, fruity and nutty aftertaste
O: Great drinkability. Just another Unibroue masterpiece. No mistake!

This beer is one of my favorites but never had time to review it..hazy, straw golden color. very thick long lasting head with good lacing. this smells very fruity : oranges and pear with some caramel malts and spices like coriander, maybe some fresh bread to it ! taste must be balanced by a mad scientist! very mellow, high carbonation, very delicate, floral and sweet from the fruits. Spicy in the aftertaste. this beer looks like La Fin Du Monde but much more complex that her acolyte !!! I would go out and say it’s a whitbier on steroids but this is just how I feel about it. very enjoyable! cheers!
