3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange w/ fluffy white head. Yeast, spice, light fruit (pears, apples?), & spice on the nose. Medium body w/ good carbonation. Yeasty flavour that is dry & mildly acid. Also notes of wheat & sweet fruit. A refreshing summer beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light amber/orange, champagne-bubbly, huge head that will not die. Weak sweetish, slightly yeasty aroma doesn't do much. Flavor -- yeah, its got maple, I dunno what else; I'm not getting any complexity or anything of real interest. Maybe I've just had too many damn maple-flavored thingies living here in VT or something. Anyway, this ain't doing it. OK body, drinkable, but not up to Unibroue standards IMHO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yeast, citrus and spice nose, hazy peach colour, white creamy head, quite a stream of bubbles, fair lacing. Yeast, apricot, and corriander flavours meld nicely. Zesty, dry finish, pleasing tongue tingle. Good offering, seems like a weak Belgian.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Typical to Belgian ale aroma but maybe with something that is not that usual - green apple. Sweet and soft. Very refreshing. Kicks your taste buds with lively taste. Goes down a bit like sparkling vine with yeasty background. Maybe not to complex as some other Belgians but above average in freshness. Very light.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (750ml bottle) I dont have much to compare this beer to because I haven't much experience with fruit beer but let me tell you that it wasn't the highlight of my New Year's Eve. Tasted like a very watery Belgium beer. My 8-pack came with a total of four flavours so hopefully one of them will make their transport over land and sea worth it...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber, big fluffy head. Sweet aroma, peaches sprinkled with maple sugar. A nice mix of sweetness and a bit of acidity.

Unrequited citrus fruit in cookie dough…Faint maple syrup (it is said to have been brewed with it) and good Unibroue yeast…An experiment…

The one time I have had the pleasure to taste this beer I decided that it was basically perfect. Very intriguing character with the perfect amount of residual sweetness to carry off a miraculous creation.
