"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: 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.

Hazy lemon/orange colour, with a creamy off white head, that lingers until the last drop. Another beautiful beer from Unibroue this one has a calming grassy, yeasty smell, that has hints of orange. Heavenly mouth feel, light on the tongue and spicy through the finish. I generally like the belgian double style better than the blone/triple style, but this is one of my favourites of the later.

Lasting white head and lace on sides of the glass; hazy gold color. Clove and citrus, yeasty and fruity, with a hint of alcohol in the aroma. Malty start with a dry finish, well balanced but finishes with a hop flavor; not overwhelming, but not something I'd expect from a stronger blonde ale. Alcohol, clove, peppery flavor, but not as complex as I'd like it. The fruitiness in the aroma doesn't quite carry through to the flavor, at least not as much. Explosive carbonation, something I'd expect from a Belgian style ale, but this is a little astringent and dry in the mouth. I haven't had a bad beer from Unibroue yet, but this is not my favorite.

This lemon gold beer is cloudy and the small bubbles form a nice head that dissipates after a short time. The nose is yeasty with hints of lavender and slight citrusy hops. The body is very rich, soft and satisfying with sweet maltiness and a bready/doughy yeastiness. The finish is honeyed and faintly hints at lemon peel.

Sparkling gold body with a thin but persistent head. Some lacing.
Yeasty and floral nose. The left over tasties from the three yeasts used in fermentation can be smelled.
Yeasty taste overpowers the maltiness but the hop finish is nice. Strong enough to be noticed but not too strong as to overpower the yeastiness.
Carbonated like champagne. This probably helps the lightness of the beer.
Not too bad for not being monks.

hazy yellow pour with frothy head. Too carbonated for my tastes - bubbles bouncing all over the glass for the duration of the beer. The carbonation ruined the mouthfeel for me and combined with spicy flavor, burnt my throat all the way down. Not malty and the aftertaste is spicy - not hop spicy but more like black pepper spicy. Not my favorite style nor my favorite representation of the style.

big beer, big price. if you know your geography, you'll recognize a cartographical depiction of labrador and eastern quebec on the label. but if like most americans, you don't know poland from the pleiades, you'll wonder why there's a backlit buffalo patty so handsomely rendered. in either case, it's significance is unexplained, and in fact is irrellevant once you find yourself personally and emotionally involved with the beer itself. a very pastel yellow pour, only slightly more vibrant than creamed corn, it wears a bright snowy crown momentarily, but too soon finds it cumbersome and casts it aside, prefering a naked straw blonde simplicity. a huge champagne bubbly aroma is consistent with the release of volumns of carbon dioxide, (eek!--a greenhouse gas contributing to global warming!) and then notes of pear, bread dough, golden apples and vaseline intensive care lotion. taste is very much like a sparkling cider, sweet and brisk on the tongue, yet more creamy. yeasty as any weizen-- without being citrus thankfully-- and tho the hops are discreet, a light tartness across the finish suggests that they're there to leash any undue sweetness. a brisk beverage for brunch, with a smart buzz that will unfetter the shyest tongue.

A most enjoyable light-colored beer with good somewhat fruity tones. It"s so good I"ve gone out of my way to get it.
