Bottle shared with the group back in 2011. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma had a nice fruity character, bubble gum, yeast, cornmeal, moderately sweet malts and light spices. The flavor had a sugary sweet character, bubble gum, yeast, mild spiciness with some floral notes.

sudomorph (578) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
341ml bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours a cloudy golden colour with an effervescent white head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of yeast, bubblegum, spice, and fruits, especially apple. Taste is semi sweet and complex. Spice, yeast, and fruits. Medium body with a very slightly watery feeling in the mouth. Medium bubbly carbonation. Slightly spicy finish with a hint of alcohol warmth. I had no idea what to expect from this beer but I was pleasantly surprised. Very nice brew! Worth keeping around. I will be buying again

mathieuc (1248) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle code M06070832Q so I believe this was brewed in 2007. I couldn’t hold it much longer! Pours a really clear copper with a thin head that leaves some impressive lacing. Aroma is where age shows first: box of cigar, old wood (madeira), somme toffee impressions. Taste is sweet but everything is under control, some alcohol heat. Carbonation level is higher than I recall, fun to drink. Some oxidation notes of course in the flavor department also but I believe it makes it a lot more enjoyable than I thought it was back in the days. Good old beer without the Unibroue signature, nice!

Yellow-orange with a white head. The aroma is full of floral and perfume hops as well as some bread and yeast. The flavor is orange, yeast and wheat. The alcohol is also noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of the Belgian yeast, peppery spice, and lemon citrus. Taste follows, crisp and refreshing with a hint of spice. Good stuff.

Aroma: Yeasty aromas--dirt and wet leaves--with hints of sour fruit. Appearance: Cloudy gold with no head. Taste: Medium sweetness with light sourness at the edges. Palate: Medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, long finish Overall: Lightly spicy flavor with lots of depth. Very impressive.

tastybeer (1713) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle. Gold pour, white head, no retention/lace. Aroma of fruity ester, bread, lemon, sugar, caramel. Taste is sweet, fruity ester, caramel, candi sugar. Palate is soft, creamy, sweet finish. Go for La Fin du Monde instead.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a goblet. The "best before" date was not printed or was rubbed off. 3.25 A: Moderately hazed orange peach color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and not much lacing is left. 3.75 S: Big spiciness with a focus on pepper. Some clove is mixed in as well, but the pepper is the headliner. Hay and a wildflower meadow outdoorziness. Apple and peach fruitiness. Neutral wheat, notes of banana, and a light dirty earthiness. 3.5 T: Taste is good, but it’s a little less focussed than the nose. Firstly, it suffers from not having a "main" flavor to lead the way. The pepper just falls into the other flavors. Also, this is much more earthy than the nose suggested. While that is fine, I do prefer fruitier, spicier tripels. Apple orchard, peach, hay, musky woods, banana, pepper, clove about in that order. 3.0 M: Lighter medium body. One of my favorite things about Unibroue beers is the spritzy carbonation. Unfortunately, this is a little undercarbed and what is there doesn’t have the spritziness I’m used to from this brewery. Still, goes down quite easily. 3.5 D: Decent beer, but it doesn’t hold a candle to LFDM, so I doubt I’ll ever buy this again, even if I’m in the mood for some Unibroue.
