4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Tasty. Full fluffy head. Darkish color, taste of yeast and banana. Alcohol is noted but pleasant. Some spice notes. Very good beer.8/4/7/4/16
12 oz. bottle. Deep straw colored with just a slight haze, probably would have been clear if not for the pre-agitation in my backpack. Enormous white head with a careful and gentle pour. Sheets of lacing. Aroma is pleasant, spicey, slightly earthen tone, bits of musty, herbal. Body is light with a pleasant uplifting carbonation. Taste is quite pleasant. Slightly sweetish up front, then shifting to a herbal/earthy taste. Ample bitterness balances out the finish, slightly lingering. Really a pleasant beer, well crafted. Worth the re-rate and bump up in score.

Clouded orange with huge lasting white head. Yeasty nose with citrus and hints of sharp pepper. Flavor is caramel and warming alcohol, along with malts and a complex mix of spices and fruits. Yeasty finish. Tastes as lovely, like all the Unibroue i have tasted!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light orange pour, with a fizzy, yet attractive off-white head. Fruit, yeast and somewhat peppery aroma. Taste is carbonated on the palette, and aggressive. Primarily banana and yeast along with some orange peel, fruit and spice. Alcohol is somewhat masked, but what you can taste is pleasant. Mouthfeel is smooth. Surprisingly light and airy.. so to speak...

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great dark golden colour, small head. Lots of citrus and even some bread like notes in aroma. Taste is a perfect balance of fruity notes, mostly banana and some lemon, with enough malt character to cover up the alcohol. Finish is a slight hoppiness that lingers. Good carbonation as well. A friend noted this was a stronger Blance de Chamblay, and while that is simple, I can see where he gets that. The best tasting beer at this alcohol strength that I have had.

This is one evil looking beer. Dark and crisp with a sweat aroma. Complex spice and hints of fruit makes this a desert style of beer. Try this one and enjoy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden color with a spicey citrus aroma. Has a crisp spicey, citrus, and sweet taste. There is some alcohol warming, but the alcohol taste seems to be covered up quite well. This was a good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy Gold Coloring. Small Head. Fruity...reminded me of Pyramid Apricot Ale for that flavor... Yeast. Definitly a good beer, but hoped for more.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2004 This beer is amazing. Definitely one of the best beers that I’ve ever had. Sweet, but not too sweet... and balanced really well. Canada’s best offering!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle BBD 031007; amazing, orange-pineapple and spicey/flowery nose; malty sweet and yeasty flavor with notes of lemon, apple, and spice; extended dry finish; rather thick and oily palate; provides quite an alcoholic burn. The flavor is a bit disappointing after such a wonderful aroma, but it's quite good, nonetheless.

definitely a beer worth trying - cloudy yellow appearance with prevalent aroma. very smooth - especially for a beer with such a high alcohol content. definitely hints of banana and other fruit.
