Pleasant Belgian ale aroma. Not to sharp, alcoholic, more like warm and soft. I like the taste of it. Just the right mouthfeel, right balancing. Good beer, well made, just one step below greatness... Thanks Doug .

The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a big white head. Nice, spicy and yeasty aroma typical of the Belgian style ales. Medium bodied with a good carbonation level, the flavor is sweet and spicy, with hints of honey and malts. Nice finish of malts and spices. Unibroue, Canadian for beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very enjoyable Belgian styled ale in the strength of a triple. Among the more enjoyable non-Belgian brewed triple styled ales available, but pales in comparison to Unibroue’s own "La Fin du Monde."
Pours clean with a bright golden hue colour and a might head that gives way quickly to a thin broken head. Aroma is very enjoyable with hints of fruit such as pear, orange and apple must, but not enough to confuse it with the "Ephemere" (also by Unibroue).
Although it has warming characteristics, its 7.7%abv is lower than that of many "triples" but that alcohol content can sneak up on ya when not looking. Its a very drinkable ale that went well with a series of pre-Xmas dinner appetizers.

As opposed to my mate down under, my head didn’t dissipate at all and poured beautifully. Slight floral scent and an alcohol finish (but no alcohol burn). I detected spice... probably my least enjoyed Unibroue beer but definitely better than the average.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very faint hazy gold amber with small rapidly dissipating off white head. Strong Floral honey, less toffee vinegar caramel, and faint spice and chicken noodle soup extract aroma. Medium low carb body. Strong honey malt and spices, with fainter yeast and alcohol. Mild spicy bitter finish and back to honey in the aftertaste. Pleasant enough.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden with lots of particulate matter, diminishing head. Nose is yeasty of course, fruity (bananas and blueberries) and lightly floral. Actually similar to a hefeweizen, in my opinion. Malty with some complexity. Has me thinking creme brulee. Alcohol is evident, though not offensive. Finishes with a flair of pepper and spice. An enjoyable tripel.

The label looks like a cherub past his prime, wishing he was still a fat little baby. Not very intimidating or scary, like other Unibroue labels. I think they try to intimidate you into buying the beer. Regardless, I enjoyed the fruity complexity and deep amber color of this beer. The middle-aged cherub failed to intimidate me, however.

Enjoyed the spicy and complex flavour. Its strength is not really noticable.
