4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy with an amber hue and an average white head. Head doesn't last long or leave much lacing. Crisp, refreshing taste with nice spices (cloves? chamomile?), leaving a great aftertaste which mellows as it lingers. You would expect more of an alcohol taste considering it's a 9% beer but it's very smooth. Another great Unibroue beer.

Mmmmmm. Gotta love free beer. 12oz bottle Best Before 2-28-05. I gotta remember to put some of this away to see how it gets with age.
Pours a cloudy amber with a very nice head, but not much lacing.
Scent is of cloves and other spices with some alcohol in there as well.
Tastes very light with spices and light fruits, with hints of ...damn, I lost it. Several tries later and it's still gone. This is very complex.
Palate is light, crisp, and refreshing, with just enough thickness to let you know you're drinking something good. Overall this is quite good. If you haven't had this yet, you're really missing out.

I had this beer in St Martin, french side. It was out of a bottle. The color is dark, not able to really see through. The smell is of hops and cherries. The taste is very full and well balanced. The alcohol is warming but not overwhelming. The aftertaste is very smooth. Excellent beer.

yeast aroma; cloudy yellow-amber with a large long-lasting white head; the taste is bitter and sour - not at all like the better tripels, and not as good as some of the other Unibroue labels

Pale yellow in color with a weak white head. Little of note in the aroma or the flavor but still a respectable beer of its style.

Beautiful cloudy golden beer. Some fruits and some great yeasts in the flavor. You can definitely taste the alcohol. I really enjoyed this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden orange cloudy beer with a white head that quickly dissapears. The aroma is yeasty (of the typical Unibroue yeast of course), and a touch of alcohol. The taste is full of strong citrus fruits, especially lemon and grapefruit. Sour-lemon finish. Good beer to have with cheeses. Bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2003 Very drinkable with an incredible bouquet. weak head with trace of lace . Great hoppy-spice bite in the aftertaste, but is it the yeast, a hop or an additive? Go for the bouquet and the rest is sure to please. Crisp, dry and tangy
