Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Hazy golden. Starts off weakly but slowly it explodes into an orgie of sweet oranges. Rich malty. Lingering finish.

Bottle. Hazy pale orange colour. Thick white head, which disappears quickly. Acidic aroma. Yeast. Alcohol. The flavour is very acidic (citrus) in the beginning and ends in a nice bitterness in the aftertaste. In between there is alcohol, coriander and ’gajoler’ (a Danish licorice for sore throats). Like a high alcohol wheat beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.
lots of champange like carbonation.
Not much lace.
Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy.
Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.
Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.

Brilliant. Nice head and sud residue on glass. Honeyed taste and texture. Bubbles without being carbonated-harsh. Wheaty tasting (and looking almost like a Hefeweissen) without being thick. Tasty. Nothing to complain about here, move along folks, move along....

Just like all the unibroue beers, it has a sparkly texture, and is good from start to finish. Different from some of the others, though, is that this gives a kick at the end, in which you can definitely the 9%. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Pours beautifully. The color is an enchanting rustic yellow with a fair amount of sediment drenching the bottom and clinging to the sides of the glass. Frothy and dense head (It took turns) that laced better than well.
Spicy clove like aroma with some banana, yeast, nectarines and alcohol. Quite the odd combination.
Tastes good. Champagne like body. Peppery clove, spices and green melon. Very smooth and it represents itself very well in the mouth. Delicate throughout.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2009 Cloudy maize with a towering rocky off white head, this beers has a very fruity nose with tons of citrus. Yeasty throughout with a fruity sweet middle and spicy lingering finish. Peach notes play a moderate role.

Extremely hugenormus head. Going down pretty quick, though. A bit citrusy and bready tasting. A lot smoother than it looked to be at first. Good stuff.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Loved everything about it, with the only possible downside being it’s almost too effervescent. It bubbles some in the mouth like champagne. Wouldn’t know its 8% from the taste, very smooth, and not overly sweet like some other high alcohol beers.
