(Brewed for the "Metro" supermarket chain); In an abbey great and towery, lived brothers talented in brewery. Ale this heavenly, alas!, led to drinkery...and now its rediscovery! Can you resist temptation?

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A hazy pale yellow beer with a fine lasting white head. The aroma is faintly sweet with notes of coriander. The flavor is very sweet malty with notes of yeast, coriander, and something I can’t put a name on.

Hazy light orange color with a medium white head. Aroma of bananas, pears and yeast. Falvor of fruits (pears and bananas) and yeast. Light to medium body, lively carbonation. Feels like a cheap imitation of a Unibroue.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Hazy blonde with a medium white fizzy head. Sweet acrid aroma, smells of fermenting. Nicely malty to start, clean finish. Light, cannot taste the 7% ABV at all. Very easy to drink.

DYCSoccer17 (3637) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Sweet aroma, I want so say its sour and kind of like a candy apple. Pour is a hazy straw color with a small fluffy white head. Sweet in the start, some maltiness in there and a fair amount of carbonation. This one is definitely different. Light and nice.

Sammy (11242) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2004
Almost passed this up in Metro because the Unibroue symbol wasn’t prominent. Comes in a four-pack. Light body, sugary aroma, nice pour with moderate head. Carbonation may not be for everyone. Sweet aftertaste.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2004
341ml bottle. A hazy, straw-coloured ale with a fizzy, disappearing head. Very light aroma of pear, banana, and yeast. Light body with an aggressive carbonation that mellows to become merely lively. The high carbonation detracts from the flavour which, while not offering a lot of depth or character, offers a light, citrusy fruitiness (pear and apple), some ginger and coriander spiciness, and a crisp, straw-like maltiness. Obviously not one of Unibroue’s best (not by a long shot), but an almost satisfactory beer that somehow survives its technical faults.

muzzlehatch (4830) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2004
341 ml bottle. Dull light cloudy amber, little head. Very little nose -- banana, yeast, honey, but not much of any of it. Fairly bland on the tongue, moderately sweet & yeasty, light orangey notes, not a lot here to write about. Full mouthfeel, light peppery alcohol finish.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
Hazy pale golden colour with a white fizzy head. Citrus and spice aroma. Citrus flavours with a spicy bitter finish. Quenching palate. Like a stronger alcohol version of Blanche du Chambly.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 2, 2004
Hazy yellow with a white head. Spicy (pepper) aroma, with some light fruits. Watery fizzy mouthfeel, starts and ends sweet. Dry ending with a yeasty taste.
