"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2003
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.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2003
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.
