4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy light honey color. Pours nice with diminishing white head. Nose is malt and citrus. Sweet, but fruit sweet, with light spice and alcohol warmness. Light carbonation and very yeasty with a share of malt. After you swallow its as if it was never there, the finish is so light leaving only slight spice and mild hops. Warms the belly though. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 The glass rapidly fills with a big white head. The beer is golden, pale enough. It smells fruits, malt and spices. In mouth, the alcohol is on the frontline, more than for the Fringante who proposed 10% ABV. Lemon, coriander and other sweet components stick to this alcohol and malt and leave a warming astringent feeling.

It does fit the style quite well. The sweetness and alcohol shine through. As with alot of unibroue products sometimes you get a good bottle sometimes you don't. On a good bottle pours a large white quickly deminishing head. Lots of particles. Easy enough to drink despite the prevailent alcohol. Better than most beers you'll find at the corner store.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 November 2007. Hazy golden yellow body with a big billowy white head. Aroma is yeasty and alcoholic, light underlying notes of dry lemony citrus and muted wisps of peppery spice in both the flavour and the aroma. Alcohol is a touch prominent when you first start but mellows wonderfully as the glass goes on. Has the basic characteristics of a Belgian tripel - dry alcohol balanced by sweet pale malt with moderate hop bitterness and light spicy notes. Smooth medium palate is fairly effervescent, pleasantly so. Fairly drinkable, though the dry alcohol occasionally snaps you back to attention. 8/4/8/4/16
<P>July 2003. Bottle. Can kind of smell the alcohol in the aroma, and taste it a tiny bit at first. The alcohol sticks out more as it warms. Goes down easy enough for me to polish off a six pack in a night, and strong enough for me to regret that fact in the morning. just a hint of bitter, and some spices especially in the aftertaste.. 8/4/8/4/16

Cloudy yellow gold color. Tall white head. Fruity aroma. Starts with a crisp dry malty flavor and endis in a ripe fruity flavor with hints of candy sugar. Has a slight sour apple flavor, and a slight touch of bananna. Another delicious offering from Unibroue.

Lots of foamy head. Beer is orange-yellow or light golden in color. Head contains very large bubbles that linger. The aroma and flavor is of straw and grass. Alcohol is well hidden, but i'm not a fan of the blondes. Sampled at 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cloudy gold color with a big white head. Lots of yeast. Fruity esters: banana and some citrus. Similar flavor. Clean finish. Well-hidden 9%. The end of the world isn't a big Belgian blonde from Quebec, but it isnt too far off though.
