"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."

I untwisted the wire and the cork was gone! Pours cloudy pale gold with a frothy off white head into my Duvel glass. Lively carbonation. Aroma is spicy and yeasty. Temperature is 56 degrees F. Flavor is sweet, spicy (orange, coriander, and clove), lightly bitter with some alcohol presence. Finish is somewhat acidic and kinda dry. Long mouth watering aftertaste. The 9% ABV makes it's self known. I like it !!!

One of the best beers i've ever had. Just one question, where are they hiding this alcohol?! I certainly can't taste it, but after 3 beers, i can sure feel it! Way to go Unibroue.

Esters from high gravity fermentation combined with alcohol, fruit and candy in the nose. A very smooth drinking beer despite the high alcohol.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2003
Robust german wheat appearance--brown gold with incredible lacing-tiny, fine bubbles composing a luscious cream head. The aroma was of delicious, but nto overdone yeast and a woody atmosphere. Good creamy initial touch on the lips, but that was also the downfall. This brew was too smooth and the flavors flattened after the initial taste. SOme yeast and wood and alcohol more noticeable towards the end, but still well integrated. The flavor was not quite as robust as advertised, but this was an easy drinking, tasteful Tripel all the same.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 Very cloudy with not alot of head. Decent finish with a spicy flavor. Very alcoholic first few sips but halfway through you warm up to the sweet tastes and forget about the alcohol which may not be a good thing.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Cloudy light honey color. Pours nice with diminishing white head. Nose is malt and citrus. Sweet, but fruit sweet, with light spice and alcohol warmness. Light carbonation and very yeasty with a share of malt. After you swallow its as if it was never there, the finish is so light leaving only slight spice and mild hops. Warms the belly though. Very good.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 The glass rapidly fills with a big white head. The beer is golden, pale enough. It smells fruits, malt and spices. In mouth, the alcohol is on the frontline, more than for the Fringante who proposed 10% ABV. Lemon, coriander and other sweet components stick to this alcohol and malt and leave a warming astringent feeling.

It does fit the style quite well. The sweetness and alcohol shine through. As with alot of unibroue products sometimes you get a good bottle sometimes you don't. On a good bottle pours a large white quickly deminishing head. Lots of particles. Easy enough to drink despite the prevailent alcohol. Better than most beers you'll find at the corner store.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 November 2007. Hazy golden yellow body with a big billowy white head. Aroma is yeasty and alcoholic, light underlying notes of dry lemony citrus and muted wisps of peppery spice in both the flavour and the aroma. Alcohol is a touch prominent when you first start but mellows wonderfully as the glass goes on. Has the basic characteristics of a Belgian tripel - dry alcohol balanced by sweet pale malt with moderate hop bitterness and light spicy notes. Smooth medium palate is fairly effervescent, pleasantly so. Fairly drinkable, though the dry alcohol occasionally snaps you back to attention. 8/4/8/4/16 <P>July 2003. Bottle. Can kind of smell the alcohol in the aroma, and taste it a tiny bit at first. The alcohol sticks out more as it warms. Goes down easy enough for me to polish off a six pack in a night, and strong enough for me to regret that fact in the morning. just a hint of bitter, and some spices especially in the aftertaste.. 8/4/8/4/16
