3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle. Pours a light hazy pale gold with an off-white head. Right out of the bottle the nose lets you know this is very much a member the Unibroue family. Yup. There’s the yeast, with very prominent green apple/apple juice, cloves, spice, doughy notes and light sultana raisin. Tangy apple, spice, mineral notes, light white grape notes, and yeast up front that leads into more spice, some definitely alcohol burn, with light malt and citrus in the finish. Honestly, this tastes VERY similar to what my brain remembers La Fin Du Monde being (with the additional apple notes), and that’s definitely a compliment. Another solid beer from Unibroue that I would buy again in a second.

From bottle. Maybe mine had sat a while. Poured fizzy white head like champagne but completely dissipated without a trace in a minute. Oily, no lacing on glass. Coloru is apple juice just a slight haze. Aroma is alcohol and fruit. Taste is medium to strong sweet. Some peach and apple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy deep gold with some particulate, one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is bready yeast, apples and pears, spices. (7/10) Taste is moderate bitter, mild sweet, mild tart. (7/10) Light to medium body, prickly to moderate sustained carbonation, and a dry mildly bitter and tart finish. (3/5)
Some cidery apple notes and a doughy, bread-like yeast initially dominate the flavour. As that fades, there’s a moderate bitter and a mild tartness that linger. Despite the quick recession of the head, there’s significant champagne-like carbonation that persists all the way to the end of the glass. The high ABV is seriously well-hidden, making this a very sneaky sipper. The character is about what I’d expect given its long cellaring, but that’s by no means a negative. That being said, I’ll have to try it again fresh, just for comparison. (15/20)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Instable à l’ouverture.Ambrée orangée, voilée. Mousse blanche efferverscente.
Au nez sucrée-fruitée, levures, légèrement épicée.
En bouche plutôt sucrée sur les fruits, je dirais abricot. Très légèrement acide-citrus. Bien pétillante et sèche en fin de bouche, type Champagne. Légère amertume.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The very tight cork on this took some effort to remove. This looks like a Belgian ale, with its big, foaming lid on lambent, butterscotch pour. The aroma is yeasty and lightly fruity to start. It tastes tangy, sweet, and rich, with flavors of golden raisins and hefeweizen, plus a little coriander. There is a cidery note in there too. It is a "triple wheat" with spices, according to the label. At 9% it is more potent than it seems at first. The flavors clash a little, but it is still quite good overall.
