Light and hazy brown color on side of glass.Deeper brown in the middle.Thin-medium head.Beautiful nose of mango,banana with some orange and buttery notes.Nose gets even more intense as the beer gets warmer.Goes down well with notes of cream,banana,candied sugar,wheat and an incredibly mild and spicy finish.Very silky and mellow for 9% abv.Simply amazing and widely underestimated.

Shared with my wife. Beautiful golden hazy color with a frothy white head. Aromas of sweet fruits, belgian yeast, white sugar and mild spiciness. Taste is heavenly with wheat, grass, yeast, sweet malt and mild spice. This is honestly one of the best Belgians I have had. Try it.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An incredibly strong ABV beer for its light, fruity taste. As an IPA drinker, this beer provides the buzz without the heavy taste.

bière légèrement orangée,arômes de banane, pain , pomme verte et d’épices. 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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
"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!
