3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had to use a corkscrew to get the cork out, and even still had to struggle. Cork residue was stuck all along the inside of the mouth. Pour wasn’t very lively despite my best efforts. Tastes...old. It’s below the standard I have found Unibroue to hold high so maybe it was mishandled at some point as the best by date is still very far away. Anyway, it’s a bit sweet and spicy in a negative way, as in too much perhaps. I don’t usually suggest a more subtle approach, but this seems hasty...and dead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml cork and caged bottle courtesy of my in-laws. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a smallish off white head that falls quick. The aroma is the traditional Unibroue house yeast and sweet grassy malt. The taste is the sweet malt, herbal grass and the house yeast shows quite brightly. Initially very sweet, though this integrated a bit better as the beer approached room temperature. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, soft natural carbonation and sweet yeast finish. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
