"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."

My appreciation for this fine ale grew appreciably when it appeaped on a menu at the Hollywood Brown Derby at MGM Studios at Walt Disney World. This fine ale increased that dining experience immensely and I am grateful. Smells and pours good. Nice head retention with light lacing. Very nice yeast flavor, not a trace of the 9% ABV. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 Twist-off cap removal yielded a lively release. This is one of the better looking Triples in a glass; the dense and creamy foam never relents. Huge aroma full of ginger, peach, pepper, vanilla, mango, green olive, lemon zest, wood, and some toastines; there are also some subtle phenolic hints. Medium-full palate with yeasty softness. Moderately complex flavors of anise, peach, zucchini bread, honey, white grape, kiwi, and black pepper. Perhaps this boasts more tropical fruitinesss than any other Triple I have experienced. Finishes with tea notes and subtle hop leaf bitterness. Readily availablity always makes this a mainstay at my home.

I could not believe my eyes when I came across this and 2 other Unibroue beers at a local general store. Immediately I cursed myslef for only having ten dollars and not having the internet on my cell phone to see which product was the one to get! Ah well, this one was definately a good choice. Light golden in appearance with a cloudy haze, this brew reminded me somewhat of Duvel. A buttery soft, lasting head came up nicely from the yellow liquid. Pears, apple and wet dog were all appearant in the initial nosing. As the beer warmed, alcohol made its presence as well, though not too much. Beautifully balanced with a palate wetting hop bite. Wonderful. alcohol is there in the first few sips, but is soon put in its place by the complexities this beer holds onto throughout the glass. An exquisite blegian strong ale that deserves at least a 4 rating and a must try for any serious beer taster.

Sometimes you get a new beer and you expect too much out of it. I was so hoping that this would be a GREAT beer that there was probably no way it could live up to it. To put it bluntly I was unimpressed with it. Just aan average belgian style golden ale. mild flowery aroma with a cloudy yellow apperance and a huge bubbly foamy head. Taste fruity with a hint of flower and spice. Once again just average.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 This beer rocks. A complex and excellent beer. The aroma was lightly floral and yeasty (soap). I detected aged apples, lemon and an unfamiliar, very pleasant spice in the nose. This masterpiece has a murky golden hue with a large, rocky white head. No lacing, but fully lasting. Deliscious. Very malty, but well balanced. Not sweet. A touch sour (I dig that) with hints of citrus and alcohol. The 9% ABV is fairly well hidden. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A touch acetic in the finish, but mostly just a long, very dry finish to an excellent belgian style ale. Belgian Trippel fans must try this one. Highly recommended.

Not a big fan of this one. Similar to Duvel. There just wasn’t anything noteworthy about this beer.

Mmmm. Possibly the best of Unibroue. Nice, vivid nose. Pretty cloudy golden color. Flavor is very nice. Very spicy and yeasty, plenty of hints of banana and citrus. Nice texture, pleasingly full. Very yeasty, gives a nice sensation of chewing it as it goes down. Yum.

Careful sipping is required as the alcohol is there. Complex with a citrus aroma
