"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."

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2004
Bottle: Nice malty and fruity aroma (definitely citrus but also something else that I can't pinpoint). Nice hazy orange color with a fair amount of sediment that enters the glass as I pour the last fifth of the bottle. Nice white head with a slight amount of retention. Not much lacing. Nice malty and fruity taste that intensifies with the finish. Very slight alcohol taste, but not much. Nice sweet aftertaste. Excellent beer!

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Damn, this is fun to look at. Lots of floating yeast dancing up the glass as the huge attack of carbonation in the initial pour carries it up to the top. This stuff behaves like champagne before it settles! Pale, murky, translucent orange color. Aroma is spicy with definite hints of coriander and citrus. Flavor is malty and sweet, with more coriander and other spices, as well as some banana and other fruit that I can't pinpoint, possibly some peach. Feels quite nice and rich. This is the strongest beer I've had yet (until it's overtaken in the next few days), and it's hard to believe that this stuff has almost 1/4 the alcohol density as a typical 80-proof liquor, but I'm drinking 12 ounces of it! This hits pretty hard! I do detect some alcohol in the nose when I get way into the glass. Overall, this isn't quite my thing (yet), but this is a strong, drinkable, quality brew that deserves a shot.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2004
Hazy golden orange colour, small white head. Malty and fruity aroma of apricot, banana, coriander and blackberries. Fruity flavour of lemon, apricot, pear yeast and spices. Yeasty and quite dry wheaty finish. Superb balance as usual from Unibroue.

BelgianGirl (89) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2004
Good Belgian beer. The aroma is nice and fruity/citrusy. It is a light golden color with a creamy white head. The flavor is that of a good Belgian beer. Good carbonation. Yummy. Trois Pistoles is still my favorite Unibroue beer, but this one is pretty good.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2005 Another solid product from Unibroue. This beer is a little lighter and easier to drink than other Unibroues out there. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Spicey taste. Easy to drink. Very light feel with lots of spices, cloves, slight citrus. Great stuff.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 22, 2004
pours a very carbonated yellow gold with light haze. nose is very spicy, with some alcohol notes. flavor an odd balance between sweetness and driness, finishing thin, with some alcohol bite. mellows some as it warms, developing a fuller mouth feel.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 April, 2004 Au Perroquet Vert, Honfleur, Normandy. Bottle conditioned with its own glass at this delightful bar (The Green Parrot) overlooking Hornfleur harbour. The bar sells 60 different beers from around the world. I’m in heaven! The beer is a hazy dirty orange with soft white mouse top. Soft fresh fruity aroma. A delicate flavour with a gentle mouthfeel leaving a soft spice in the finish. [3.5]
Oct, 2008 330ml bottle conditioned from a supermarket in Marseille. Fruity, yeasty, strong pale ale. Soft, prickly carbonation. Sweet. A bit yeasty, hot and clean for my taste, but drinkable with hints of honey and chocolate. [2.9]

DarkElf (3051) - La Jolla, California, USA - APR 19, 2004
High in alcohol content, this tripel packs a strong punch; Rather complex, with an initial maltiness being quickly replaced by a spicy, coriander flavor and a fairly strong sweetness, and the coriander dominating the finish; Only a mild bitterness; Kind of an odd musty aroma at first, but a quick second sniff is spicy and sweet; Highly carbonated beer which foams up in the glass and in your mouth; Yellowish golden in color and quite cloudy; Fine sediment is suspended in the beer; Off-white head is huge with very large bubbles, and dies down to reasonable levels fairly quickly

Maybe the headiest beer I've ever seen. It may be nice to have this in the fridge in case you run out of shaving cream. Also very heady in alchy content. 3x fermented malt is as sweet and full-bodied as you'd expect, but also has the citrusey taste of a blonde ale. Probably good for after a summer dinner (provided the dinner didn't come with a couple drinks too).
