3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2005 2004 bottle: Aww that wonderful aroma of an abbey tripel. Kind of like a mesh of putrid pear and banana. Has a thin head that lays out flat and is golden yellow with a small amount of haze resting through out the liquid. Flavor is a little soapy and includes a dosage of alcohol behind the robust taste of unripe pear and green apples. Some spice added as wel being of clove and pepper.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2005 Bottled. Cloudy dark orange colour. Big foamy head- Sweet, malty (north-american), orangey, spicy nose. Sweet, malty, fruity, orangey taste. Some yeastiness and chocolate, especially in the finish. Sweet maltiness dominates. Different from Belgian tripels, where often the spices dominate.Reminded me strongly of Stone Vertical Epic. Excellent. Thanks to yogi_beera and pivo for this awesome brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy butterscotch colour without a head. Carbonation is excellent. Palate is chewy and malty with spices. Seemed however hoppier than other Unibroues.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In the 750 ml bottle. Pours a deep golden color with a medium white head. Big bubbles. Malt liquor aroma. Taste is strong with a sizeable bitter hop content. Very high alcohol can be detected in the mouth. Smooth and accommodating for all the complexities of tastes contained here. Finish is slightly medicine-like. Fine ale.

Pours hazy golden with huge white head that doesn’t quit. Complex yeasty aroma with lots of esters. I detect some spices perhaps cloves and nutmeg. Flavor is is quite yeasty, smooth, and sweet. Excellent belgian.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
En duft af vanille bredte sig med det samme jeg knappede låget af. Stikker man næsen lidt tættere på gemmer der sig også frugtnoter i aromaen. Farven er uklar orangegylden. Temmelig meget kulsyre. Alkoholen er fremtrædende i smagen, men en blød, tør vinøs karakter, og en smag af druer gør denne øl til en oplevelse.

Bottle. Poured like pale apple nectar with a huge parfait head. Plenty of cling to the large lacey head. Sniffed like cooked bananas or ripe papayas. Finished tart. A wonderful brew that I’ll enjoy again and again.
