(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 (34318) - 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.

joergen (25926) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Sweet aroma of fruits and spices with notes of unibroue yeast. Flavour of caramel, fruits and spices.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Pale pilsener golden with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is mainly yeasty with a touch of alcohol. Lightly sweetish, malty character with a bit too heavy carbonation (it is Unibroue after all...). But they forgot the hops completely. Not bad, just bland. 270106

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. Cloudy golden, brief head. Restrained estery aroma. Dryish and lively with a vague hint of almonds. Typical Unibroue beer.

anders37 (23012) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head. A little spicy aroma and also hints of yeast. Sweet malty yeasty flavor. A little spicy and sweet aftertaste.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2003
Hazy golden color, beautiful creamy head. Malty aroma, spicy; light sweet orange and tangerine; somehow more round than other Unibroue's examples. Unfortunately the body is really poor; dry and lightly tart in the beginning; the final as well is too simple.

Oakes (15617) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2003
Hazy blond. Some biscuity notes and fading earthiness. Lots of yeast, but slight of body and palate. Doesn't even live up to Kamouraska standards, let alone the impeccable St-Hubert. A reprise of that recipe would have been a good idea.

argo0 (13231) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 14, 2005

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 12, 2003
cloudy pale orange colour, the initial head is reducing quickly leaving just few foam, pear and bread aroma, notes of grapefruit, lot of carbonation, moderate bitterness in a dry bready, malty and fruity finish - the little brother of la Fringante (same recipe with less alcohol ?)

hopdog (11527) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Opened to a loud psst and was a very light gusher. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of yeast, spices and lightly fruity. Tastes of the same with some caramel. The tastes also reminded me a little of apple juice.
