hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Surprised I have not rated this. 750 ml, caged and corked bottle (drank tail gating before the Pro-Muay Thai fights). Hazy golden in color with an averaged sized head. Unibroue yeastiness, spicy, some citrus, and a lighter fruitiness.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle @ the rake dungeon stored in various rotboxes for the past three years. Slight gusher. Nice looking, hazy, bright yellow orange appearance with a cream colored head. The aroma is a bit heavy on the phenols and esters - lots of apple, banana, pear, some clove, and black pepper. Some notes of oxidation in the aroma. Decent carbonation. Somewhat dusty and lightly doughy flavor. Pretty yeast forward flavor. More banana and red apple. Some more oxidation. Not much of a problem with the alcohol - pretty smooth finish. Probably should have been drank a bit more fresh but it’s still kind of a fun beer.

Cloudy straw colored pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Aroma of sour malt and yeast. Some banana. Taste is clove and banana with some notes of pepper.

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 17, 2014
Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light gold color with a smaller than expected head for Unibroue. Nose is apples and spring fruits. Taste is light, refreshing, of apples ans fruit. Slightly sweet, with the typical Belgian yeast finish of bubblegum, clove, and banana. Tastes like cider made by Belgians Unusual, but quite good..

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours hazy, and the colour of honey, with an off-white head of fine white bubbles. On the nose, light notes of lemon, wet concrete, yeast, black pepper, honey, with light floral and earthy notes. Taste wise, it’s sultanas, light corn syrup, light apple pie filling, and mineral notes that lead into a touch of metallic hops, yeast, and a fruity crisp mineral finish.

pumpkinhead2 (346) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bière jaune orangée, bien voilée, remplie de petites particules en suspension, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un col beige, un peu mince, mais dense et persistant. Arômes principalement fruités, de bon fruits frais du verger (pêche, pomme, poire…), avec du pain frais, de la pâtisserie, et de légers effluves de sucre d’orge et de miel. La levure est également présente au nez, mais ce n’est pas la levure typique Unibroue, on est davantage dans la levure à pain, et on peut également déceler des notes un peu plus herbacée. Il s’agit d’un beau nez, bien agréable et bien intense, adéquatement complexe. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, belle onctuosité intéressante, c’est soyeux au palais. Au goût, un peu plus sucré que le nez laissait présager, beaucoup de sucre d’orge, du pain frais/pâtisserie/levure à pain, légère saveur de miel, le fruité est présent en bouche, mais bien moins dominant qu’au nez. Cependant, en plus des fruits du verger, on peut déceler également des saveurs de banane bien mûre. Un houblon plutôt herbacé est aussi présent en bouche, ainsi que certaines notes alcoolisées, et de subtiles épices (poivre, gingembre, clou de girofle…). Plutôt sucrée, cette bière présente une finale à l’amertume légère. Très bonne bière, excellente intégration des saveurs entre elles, belle intensité, complexité adéquate.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle. Murky apricot body, thin off-white head. Spicy nose, light fruits (white grape, pineapple), clove, and hints of pepper. Body with lots of apples, dough, and cloves. Cider-like. Rich, spicy, and fruity.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Pen & Paper Log (Dec 2012) Aroma - sweet aroma, with some citrus in the nose as well as coriander spice Appearance - hazy orange, with a think thin white head, that eventually rings out Taste - Unibroue’s charachteristic yeasty quality always shows up, and this is no different. Flavor is sweet and peppery, with coriander. Very typical of Unibroue Palate - body is medium, the carbonation is lively on the palate, the finish is abrupt and has that carbonation yeast quality about it.
