Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Re-Rate 12/28/02: One sip of a Unibroue beer several years ago started a continuous love affair with this brewery, and the whole line of their beers, “La Fin Du Monde” was that first beer, what a stroke of luck that was for this “Grizzled Old Beer Swiller”.

As it pours from the bottle, a slightly hazy lemon yellow, the head creamy in texture, the size masterful, the color a brilliant white, as it evanesces it leaves a silky sheet of fine lace to cover the glass. The aroma of finely malted grains dominates the nose, citrus crisp, lightly sweet and a pleasure to the senses. Ambrosial start with lots of malt, the top middling in its feel with a spirited acidity, masterfully hopped, and a long drawn-out aftertaste that is dry. The 9% ABV, make this a real “Belly Warmer”, for these cold winter days and nights, a beer I love, and I always have a few bottles on hand as they age gracefully and I wish I could say the same for my own self. Ranks #282 on my current 1000 beer master list.

A convincing almost-Belgian tripel. I like it better than the Allagash, for example, and possibly more than the real thing. Strong taste of yeast, but not too yeasty or bready. Lightly hopped. Deceptively easy to drink for a 9% ABV.

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2002
This is a nice one for a lighter belgian ale. Similar in charactewr to Duvel, but less hops. Weak aroma but rich flavor. Small but enduring head.

khayman70 (154) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Have heard this is similar to Trois Pistoles, but haven’t tried it yet. I like the Unibroue beers as well if not better than Chimay. The price difference isn’t bad either. The nose is a bit citric with a slight spice undertone.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2002
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Blonde color, fizzy champaigne-like head. Huge, fruity, slightly citric nose. Very yeasty, with a big robust mouthfeel and peppery finish. Alcohol is fairly well hidden within the big body. Many similarities to Trois Pistoles - aroma especially. Mmmmm.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Has a yellow/orange color and a slight alcohol smell. Taste is similar to Trois Pistols, but it does not have the high alcohol flavor. I would get it again.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2002
Another quality beer from Unibroue. Big, yeasty and belgian with a nutty and fruity smell and flavor. This is a good brewery.

presario (4656) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 Not quite as interesting as Maudite. The cloudier the glass the better the taste. Need to mix up the citrus flavours to really enjoy. Malt is not that strong. Liquid Gold? OK!

Beautiful head that takes forever to dissipate when you pour it. Good flavor, a little more acidic than I’d prefer but no biggie. Damn good beer.
