Nice sudsy white head on top of a pale straw colored body. Yeasty phenolic aroma with a little bite of citrus and spice. Flavor is yeasty and malty with a hint of some fruit flavors. Palate is spicey and dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy and golden, with a thin white head. Tastes of pepper, citrus, yeast, sweetness... lightly warming but nicely hidden. Another winner in the Unibroue stable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy blonde color, with a generous white head that lasts. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Perfectly balanced, with hints of clove, banana, orange and yeast. A nice sweetness prevails throughout, and the 9% alcohol content is hidden well. Yet another feather in the cap for the folks at Unibroue.

Cloudy blonde beer with a good white head and some lacing. Smells of sweet malt, clove, banana. Tastes sweet and yeasty with a bit of citrus. The alcohol is definitely detectable. This is a great beer from Unibroue.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dense pale, almost whiteish, amber appearance, moderate head formation. Fresh baked bread, yeasty aroma with orange juice, pepper and rosemary. Palate is malty, peppery, orangey with some hop bitterness in the finish but all in all not extremely assertive.

Pale golden color with bubbles that rise to the top. Slim white head. Sweet aroma. Fruity and malty. Some pepper...malt, orange, some other fruit i can't think of, and some spices. Pretty good brew! Well balanced and all. Bought this bottle at Whole Foods in Vienna , VA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy golden-blonde colour with a moderate white head. Aroma is peppery, yeasty and a little citric. Firm, complex flavour with notes of yeast, oranges, pepper, malt, caramel and spices. Hides its alcohol content very well indeed. Compared to some of Unibroue's more "exotic" offerings, like Terrible and 10 and 11, it may seem simple, but there's a lot of good things going on in this beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Creamy golden color, somewhat like a hefe. Nice firm head. Sickenly sweet aroma. Nice gentle combination of malts and fruity tastes, although a tad sweet on the tongue. Wonderful aftertaste. If you like hefeweissen, try this too.

I didn't like this one as much as Maudite. I found it to be a little too sweet for my taste. The 9% alcohol blends in nicely. Feels very good in the mouth. Nice aftertaste. Hits hard if you drink it fast. (A good thing). :)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had from the bottle on New Years day 2004. Has aromas of fruit, apples and some cinnamon, a little alcohol and some yeast. Colour is a cloudy orangy yellow with a bight white head. I'm not sure what the black specks are in the bottom????? The beer is really carbonated, maybe a little too much. The body is fruity, just like the aroma. The middle has a definate alcohol vapour to it. A small amount of wine flavour to it. The finish is pretty clean. Slight yeasty flavour with alcohol.
