Pours with a light honey/dark golden color and produces a thin head of white foam that dissipates farily quickly. Nose: banana, butter and clove aroma.
Flavor: butterscotch, coriander(?), a doughy banana bread, lightly yeasty. Reminds me of Duvel.

This is my favorite beer that Iíve ever tried I think Very nice aroma with a kind of apple taste which was very nice and refreshing the after taste was a little like a wine (dry) but all around this beer was very impressive with itís 9% A.C. Only problem with it is that I have to go to New Brunswick to get it they donít sell it here on the Island.

Slightly better than i remember ( the bottle i had had been aged for a couple of years), very nice, hints of wine (chardonnay), peach, malt, hops, and nice and dry. But still had the characteristics from the other brews from Unibroue (perhaps a bit of sweet stickiness, very nice beer though.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 I thought Maudite was the top Unibroue, but this kicked its ass. Insane body ... I guess I stored it wrong because it foamed all over the damn place. But a deliciously spicy flavour, clean finish and drinkability, and the perfect sweetness made this the king of Quebecois beers. Also enough alcohol in one bottle to crack your head open.

Large lasting head, cloudy orange color, smells of orange and caramel. The taste has a big alcohol domination with a sweet fruity/citrus/caramel flavor. Dry finish with alcohol again predominating. VERY tasty!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A fine trippel aroma much like Chimay Premiere, my favored Chimay. Spicy, heathery, Bretty, subdued citrus, complex fruit acids, semi-dry, zesty, alcohol piquant. Itís much better when I shake out some effervescence and it becomes a bit more yeasty, sweeter. An excellent fruitier remix of Chimay Premiere, the best of the Chimays.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 Wonderful maltiness, and I feel the fruitiness is subdued. But what clinches this as wonderful for me is that the piney spiciness I often get in triples in nearly absent...just a hint. For my 'slow' palate (it had to ride the 'short' bus to beer-drinking school), that gives the citrus, and sweeter fruit flavors, a chance to shop up, especially when warming. I love the malt/yeast in this one.

I would expect to taste more alcohol in a beer with this high an abv%. Smooth, little bit of fruit, nice beer!
