COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
"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."

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.

Pours a lightly hazed golden. Small champagne like bubbles race to the top, battling the sediment for the quickest path to join their fellows in the thick white head. Aroma is medium fruity (banana and apple), and lightly yeaty. Flavor is apple and banana, ending clean and dry with some yeast undertones.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Another winner from Unibroue. Not quite as good as the Maudite. Perhaps a little drier, while the Maudite is sweeter and fruitier. This one has very nice lace.

Nice head and colour. Discreet aroma of lemon. It has the taste of a wheat beer with an aftertaste a little bit heavy. A good beer.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Poured a wonderfull yellow haze with a fluffy head and good lacing. Soft on the palate, this was full of apricots and spices. Yeasty, tangy, a little alcohol apparent. One of the best of the triple style

Straw colored with little head. This beer had tons of carbonation, and lots of stuff floating in amongst the bubbles. Mouthfeel was thick, boardering on chewy, which was bit of a surprise. Tastes were bananna and cloves, which I expected. The presence of hop bitterness, taste, or aroma was negligible. The ABV was very, very well masked except for a tingle on the tongue and a warming of the gut. Overall this beer was pretty good, but could use some more assertiveness on the hop end of the spectrum.
