COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
"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."

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2003 Sweet and malty taste with nice fizzy carbonation. Huge head on pour, took many minutes to settle. High alcohol content hidden very well, you wouldn't come close to thinking this was 9% abv. Overall very nice.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - FEB 16, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 I smell apple and alcohol in the aroma. Pours a cloudy straw color, small head and minimal lacing, very small bubbles. Great mouthfeel. The ABV is well hidden, flavor is a hint of apple with an alcohol finish. Almost champagne like.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - FEB 15, 2003
Awesome nose of hazelnut, vanilla, apple, and alchol. Pours a light hazy honey blond. I left the floaties in the bottle. The average white frothy white head is mostly diminishing with no lacing. The sweet flavor starts highly acidic and malty, and the finish is long and sweet. The medium dry fizzy body finishes mostly astringent with a hint at the brew's gravity. An excellent brew.

The perfect amount of sweetness. The high alcohol content is well hidden. Carbonation is strong. Definately one of my top choices.

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 Begins with cloudy, soft gold color and snowy white (thick) head. Aroma is nice, slightly sweet, and subtle. Flavor is much like the aroma, and is really very nice. Very easy on the palatte and simply delicious. Another fine beer from Unibroue!

Mostly diminishing head. Light, hazy, golden pale color. Fine sediment floating, probably from the pour or too much agitation. Clove and light banana, as others have said. Fairly smooth. The alcohol pokes its head out just a little just so you know it's there. I need to drink more Belgian styles so I can get a feel for the flavors in these brews. They're a lot more delicate than the stuff I'm used to drinking.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Pretty hazy yellow color with a bright white head...very similar in appearance to a whiskey sour. The aroma and flavor had nice clove and sweet banana tones with just a hint of hops bitterness to round it out. Very pleasant beer.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2003
a very intresting trip. light, smooth yet solid. I liked it a lot more then several other trips i've had, probably a better "drinking" beer.

fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2003
very good triple. It has a tang in the flavor but hides its strength well. It has a similar nuance to other Unibroue beers that seems to come from yeast. A Quebecois Belgian style triple perhaps.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 I'm glad they finally changed the laws in Ohio so we can get treasures like this. A wonderful belgian ale that knocks your socks off.
