Heat99 (56) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2001
Once again...a little too sweet for my taste. Appearance was golden, slightly cloudy with quickly dissapating head and lace. It had a strong sweet, malty and yeasty nose with a very similar taste followed by a bitter alcoholic flavor and aftertaste. It was enjoyable, but the overpowering sweetness was a bit much for my palate.

Bottle from my Unibroue Sommelier 6 pack of their mixed beers. A nice golden orange body, with a fairly thin white head. You can immediately smell the Belgian yeasts when you open the bottle. It is accompanied by honeyed fruits, like bananas and coriander and a touch of bready malts. Tastes are certainly in the Ale on Lees side of things. Orange tinged spiciness lays underneath it all. Would definitely gladly buy and drink this one again.

Stoned99 (350) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
750ml bottle shared with wife and bought from Pasquier. Aroma: lemon, abricot, wheat, spices. App: cloudy pale, medium head no retention. Taste and palate: medium body, oily, average carbonation, light acidity and warming alcohol finish. Overall: this is like the hundred times I drink this beer and I still think it?s still a really good beer. Really enjoy the finish. Drink really cold, not that good when it gets warmer.

Onionkid (371) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is peachy and boozy. The taste is similar, very fruity and plenty of alcohol in it. I like the flavor overall, but it’s actually kinda sweet. Maybe a bit too much. Overall, I recommend it! 9% alcohol.

swillguzzler99 (135) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Opaque brown amber with yeast particles. Light head. Nutty nose. Sweet taste that hides the alcohol well. Canada has a winner!

La definirei la mamma della Blonde de Chambly già provata, visto che è sicuramente superiore. Un’ottima strong ale da 9% dal colore arancio, frizzantina e dal sapore di malto e agrumi, direi soprattutto arance. In generale dolce ma non marcatamente, davvero molto godibile.

deepeary (260) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2015
10-month old bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy apricot colour with white soapy head. Nose is Belgian yeast, banana, pears, some spices. Taste fresh and yeasty with fruit esters, some bitterness and tart notes. Drinks like a tripel. Pretty good.

Beardbeerman (225) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden amber topped by a generous frothy off-white head showing moderate retention and fine lacing. Some very vivid carbonation is spotted during the first few minutes after cracking it open. The nose has the Unibroue signature yeasts with spicy and herbal notes and a touch of apple. You also get awesome fresh lemon peel and some caramel sweetness. The taste is caramel paired with some butter notes where the yeasts add their spicy and earthy touch though a full body. The brew offers a lingering pillowy fruity finish. Cheers!

Bottle from Harvest Market. Lightly hazy deep golden color with a huge frothy white head and a huge amount of stickies and carb bubbles.Fruity spicy earthy yeasty, has that Unibroue sameness but it just works, nice brew.
