UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Very good beer. Smells strongly of green apple and has a great fruit and caramel balance. A well done and complex brew.

Ktwse (3418) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Pours clear golden with tall white head. Aroma of raisins, sugar, dried fruit, light honey, light herbs. Taste is very sweet, sugar and honey, with a light spicy finish. Somewhat one-dimensional. Body is light to medium rich, smooth, with almost lively carbonation.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Hazy straw peach color with powerful activity. Extra foamy, almost creamy, white sparkly 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of fresh apple and sweet grains, slightly metallic. Flavors of citrus lemon, coriander, apple, peach, pineapple, fruit ester, honey/caramel, floral and herbal spices. Bready and woody/oaky feel. Highly sweet but still sharp. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Well intensified medium strength finish, ending with a slightly vinous fruity estery feel with a dash of spices. Overall an excellent craft having good freshness and nice complex flavors, well balanced and intensified. Pretty good but not my favorite Belgian Ale.

fhoublon (404) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 13 novembre 2015. Bière blonde très pâle, voilée. Mousse un peu, col mince off-white, éphémère. Assez effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur d’alcool, d’épices, de levure et de pain frais. Saveur de blé, de banane, et un peu d’épices.

AleRider78 (450) - - APR 10, 2016
Poured a pretty huge foamy and creamy head. Has a nice yellowish pale appearance, sort of like a mango juice like look. Very strong citrus flavours and aromas all around. At this point, Unibroue brews are becoming strangely familiar but amazing beers nonetheless. 9%?! Can’t really tell, it’s well hidden.

DrNosha (1336) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 6, 2016
341ml Flasche. Hellbraunes Bier mit schönem Schaum. Es duftet nach Karamell und Frucht. Geschmack süss-herb. Fruchtig und nach Toffee.

ciocanelu (838) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2016
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma has wheat and Belgian yeast esters. Taste is sweet and yeasty with wheat and lemon notes. Medium body with high effervescence. Not bad but it’s really not my style of beer.
