"The end of the world. The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage an exquisitely robust flavor of exceptional refinement."

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a nice rocky white head. Banana clove aroma, with an alcohol component. Big thick malty flavor with hints of banana and clove. Like a big, giant weiss beer. Better than I remember from years gone past...

Beautiful looking beer. Has a citrus tast to it (lemon and something else). A bit of a bitter bite, but in a good way. No bad aftertaste like I expected when I took the first sip. A good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2004 Bottle. Brilliant bright gold color with a fluffly white head that never completely fades. Hazy. Aroma of clove and ginger spiciness with some nectarine- like fruitiness. Fantastic. Fizzy fine bubbled carbonation. Spicy and citrusy flavor that is sweet at the start, tangy at the finish. No odd aftertastes that I have noticed in other Belgian style ales. Alcohol warmth is present, but flavor is not obtrusive. Lighter mouthfeel than I expected for a high gravity beer. As it warms, a carmelly almond flavor makes its presence known. Once again, fantastic.

Brilliant gold color and a slowly fading large white head on top. Nice spicy aroma with a bit of honey. Some alcohol in the flavor subsides somewhat as it warms. Spicy citrus flavor with a slight sweetness. A tasty triple!

Man, if it truly was the end of the world, this would be a great way to spend the last day. Alcohol presence is obvious, though not overpowering. Golden color with small head. Drinking the whole bottle while playing a game of CRA CRA CRA CRANIUM might not be the best advice, but I won anyway. Very sweet. Reminded me of one of my favs--Duvel. Drinking the 750 ml alone is not for the faint of heart.

This is the strongest ale I’ve ever tasted, and the first Unibroue ale that I’ve ever tried. It has a semi-light body, lighter than some ales, but it packs a punch. This is one of the best beers from Canada.

I thought that this was an excellent example of the style. Pours with a bright gold color and has slow bubbles. There is a large white head that turns to a small head with time. The aroma is peaches, oranges and ginger. After this warms up I also smell carrots. The taste is peaches and cinnamon. Has a spicy ginger finish. The carbonation is soft in the mouth. This is my favorite Unibroue.

This 9% ABV offering from Unibroue distinguishes itself from its comrades (Trois pistoles and La Maudite) in that it is a thinner more tart traditional Belgian strong beers . It also has no less of the "warming" effect to it than these other heftier Unibroue beers. Pours a slightly cloudy light gold color Aromas of spices, sweet malts and a peppery twang. Starts like a regular well made ale then sits on the palate with a medium body punctuated with spices, malts and a honey taste...the natural effervescence helps punch the hop tanginess trough near the finish which is fairly clean and smooth for a heavy beer with only a lingering pepper taste mingled with the alcohol warmth, I like this as a drinkable heavy beer. Not as filling as La Maudite or trois pistoles.

Big yeasty nose with some clove and pepper. Hefe-like banana first sip quickly fades to strong, spicy and fruity flavors. Light and flavorful. Finish has a strong alcohol burn.
