3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
a very intresting trip. light, smooth yet solid. I liked it a lot more then several other trips i've had, probably a better "drinking" beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
very good triple. It has a tang in the flavor but hides its strength well. It has a similar nuance to other Unibroue beers that seems to come from yeast. A Quebecois Belgian style triple perhaps.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 I'm glad they finally changed the laws in Ohio so we can get treasures like this. A wonderful belgian ale that knocks your socks off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy lemon/orange colour, with a creamy off white head, that lingers until the last drop. Another beautiful beer from Unibroue this one has a calming grassy, yeasty smell, that has hints of orange. Heavenly mouth feel, light on the tongue and spicy through the finish. I generally like the belgian double style better than the blone/triple style, but this is one of my favourites of the later.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lasting white head and lace on sides of the glass; hazy gold color. Clove and citrus, yeasty and fruity, with a hint of alcohol in the aroma. Malty start with a dry finish, well balanced but finishes with a hop flavor; not overwhelming, but not something I'd expect from a stronger blonde ale. Alcohol, clove, peppery flavor, but not as complex as I'd like it. The fruitiness in the aroma doesn't quite carry through to the flavor, at least not as much. Explosive carbonation, something I'd expect from a Belgian style ale, but this is a little astringent and dry in the mouth. I haven't had a bad beer from Unibroue yet, but this is not my favorite.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This lemon gold beer is cloudy and the small bubbles form a nice head that dissipates after a short time. The nose is yeasty with hints of lavender and slight citrusy hops. The body is very rich, soft and satisfying with sweet maltiness and a bready/doughy yeastiness. The finish is honeyed and faintly hints at lemon peel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
