3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The 12 oz. bottle labeled, “Best Before 04-05-08,” pours a cloudy, blonde ale with a large, quickly disappaiting, tight white head. There was little lacing. There is a light malt nose with some hops and heavy floral and citrus notes. Palate entry is fairly sweet, but there is a residual sweetness reminiscent of honeysuckle nectar due, perhaps, to bottle fermentation. Grapefruit citrus flavors predominate in the mid-palate, but I also detected essences of coriander and clove spice. The short, clean finish is refreshing and moderate on hop bitterness. Effervescent, and easy drinking, I found this ale similar to a Belgian white or German hefeweißen style. Very good.

I had this in a small bottle and I enjoyed it a lot. There was a lot of yeast in the poor but it was still good. Lacing lasted a long time. The smell was a lot like a belgian beer but the taste was much better. Two of my friends also tried it and were also impressed.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge foamy thick white head and lined lacing. Sweet yeast (dough, barn) and light malt (hay, straw) aroma with sweet fruit and floral notes. Sweet yeast, dough and light malt flavor, mildly acidic with a fruity floral finish. Light bodied and fizzy, spicy palate, very lively carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy, honey color with a nice off white head, pretty decent lacing. The aroma was yeasty, with some citrus and banana overtones. The beer was not overly carbonated as some of the other Unibroues, but plenty of complexity and not even a hint of watery texture. The flavor was laced with cane sugar, malt, yeast, banana, a little sweet orange and clove. The high alcohol was almost completely hidden. Quite a departure from the Maudite and Trois Pistoles, but like those two, exceptional in almost every way. I’m becoming a huge fan of this brewery

Rusty cider pour with a soft ivory head that doesn’t stick around. Very ciderish nose as well, sour apple and cherry blend nicely with the sweet, almost wheat, maltiness. The body is full of carbonation, that expands the complex body across the tongue. The soft yeastiness infuses more sweet fruit into the layers of fresh, bready malt. The high ABV is hidden well throughout, making this monster extremely drinkable. The long, dry finish may be the bottle conditioning yeasts at work, and may become overly dry eventually. Although this brew is rather light in color and body for a Trippel, I think it will continue to meld and mature for years to come. (Best Before - 5/19/08)

12 oz. bottle. Best before 6/12/06, enjoyed on 11/7/05. Pours a murky, pale yellow/orange with a medium sized, fizzy, white head. Mostly diminishing. Aroma is banana, orange, lemon and cloves. The flavor is very refreshing, oranges, apricots and bananas. The lively carbonation bites the tongue on the finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Tripels aren’t my favorite style, but this one was quite enjoyable.

My wife, she usually takes a few sips of my beer says she likes it and then go and gets a wheat beer from the fridge. This one, she insisted on me pouring her a glass after trying it. Then she insisted on me pouring her another glass. Then she stole mine.

I don’t drink this too frequently, but when I do I enjoy it immensely. Big booming head and aroma. Cuidado, it’s potent.
