Decent yellow yeasty beer. Taste and smell slighlty astringent but nice and tangy tart flavor throughout. Good flavor. A bit thin on the texture for my taste. Nice alcohol kick.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer poured a golden straw color and formed a bubbly white head that left circular lace. A small amount of carbonation was present. It had an aroma of citrus, spice(?clove) and some yeast elements. The flavor was of spice and citrus with a warming feeling of the alcohol present. The finish was a touch astrigent

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 A solid brew with a pretty noticeable alcohol taste. The rest of the beer, makes you not care about the alcohol. Not too bitter, with a yeast-like texture. Highly recommended------ 3/19/04. This was the beer that got me hooked on beer and Rate Beer. Now that I look back at my original rating, its pretty pitiful. 12 oz bottle this time. Nose is fruity, I smell pineapples, malts, yeasts, and spices. Don't remember the aroma being so pleasant. Pours hazy blonde with a HUGE white head. Very sweet and fruity start--really taste what appears to be pineapple. Sweet candies in the middle. Alcohol hidden well. Nice palate. I agree with my initial rating. This seems much better than the first time I had it.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2003 Sweet and malty taste with nice fizzy carbonation. Huge head on pour, took many minutes to settle. High alcohol content hidden very well, you wouldn't come close to thinking this was 9% abv. Overall very nice.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 I smell apple and alcohol in the aroma. Pours a cloudy straw color, small head and minimal lacing, very small bubbles. Great mouthfeel. The ABV is well hidden, flavor is a hint of apple with an alcohol finish. Almost champagne like.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Awesome nose of hazelnut, vanilla, apple, and alchol. Pours a light hazy honey blond. I left the floaties in the bottle. The average white frothy white head is mostly diminishing with no lacing. The sweet flavor starts highly acidic and malty, and the finish is long and sweet. The medium dry fizzy body finishes mostly astringent with a hint at the brew's gravity. An excellent brew.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The perfect amount of sweetness. The high alcohol content is well hidden. Carbonation is strong. Definately one of my top choices.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2003 Begins with cloudy, soft gold color and snowy white (thick) head. Aroma is nice, slightly sweet, and subtle. Flavor is much like the aroma, and is really very nice. Very easy on the palatte and simply delicious. Another fine beer from Unibroue!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
