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!

Bottle purchased at Haskells. Snifter glass. Hazy gold leaning towards orange with a nice even frothy head. Unibroue emphasizes the aroma well on this beer with a strong yeast and tropical smell. Very fresh tasting ale. Mouthfeel really asserts itself right off the bat. Spice plays well with a decent amount of sugar sweetness. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Impressive in general. I would highly recommend seeking it out.

small bottle from haskells. light orange, with some haziness. white head. Alcohol, orange peel, spice nose - potent citrus. Very nice aroma. Nice yeast funk to go with slight spiciness and orange peel. Some clove spice. Very crisp, very fresh tasting, Tough style to master, but this is a very solid effort. Spicy for a belgian strong, but it totally works. Nice beer. Certainly a gift to me.

750 ml bottle from La Vista Liquor. Pours clear orange-gold with a slight white head that doesn’t retain. Aroma of peaches, honey, pineapple, bread, and straw. Has a well balanced taste focused on sweet, fruity flavors and warming alcohol. I can taste the coriander and orange peel, kind of like a super strong witbier. I think I got a fairly flat one, soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, creamy texture, long, sweet, boozy finish. Good for the price ($8.99), has a unique flavor, I would get this again.

Bottle. Hazy straw pour with a couple fingers of white head after and aggressive pour. Yeast and tropical aroma, banana. Taste is heavy on the orange with spice, coriander, as well. Light body, but still a better sipper than gulper. Another good one from Unibroue.

Coffee cake, banana, and citrus in the aroma. More of the same in the flavor--sweet, bready, and fruity. Fruit bitterness, candy sugar, and some alcohol in the finish. Really good.

Transfer from BA review on 1-6-13- Poured from 750 ml bottle into a wide mouthed chalice glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice golden orange color with a medium haze and a one finger white head. The head has a good level of retention and fades slowly over time to give a small level of lacing. Smell- The aroma is wheaty and of orange citrus. These pleasant and stronger aromas are accompanied by a yeast cake, coriander, clove and banana aroma as well. Overall it’s a nice blend of a spicy yeast, fruit and wheat smells. Taste – A big wheat and orange flavor greet the tongue. Spice notes of coriander and nutmeg then join the other two flavors with the sweetness of the orange drying up some to produce a slightly more crisp flavor in the mouth. While it seems to dry out in the middle, more toward the end, once banana and yeast flavors along with an increase in the orange citrus come to the tongue, the brew sweetens up again. A light alcohol flavor also makes itself present at the end leaving a nice warming Belgian triple taste of citrus, yeast and alcohol along with a nice grainy wheat flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is a little on the thinner side while the carbonation level is a little on the higher side. The mouth profile is very nice for the style as it makes it quite drinkable and is nice for the very citrus flavors of the brew. Overall – I think this is a nice triple wheat or BSPA (which I view as having overlapping taste profiles and characteristics). Unibroue never ceases to disappoint. Lots of great citrus and wheat flavors along with a nice spice and warming feel.
