"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."

This is a nice one for a lighter belgian ale. Similar in charactewr to Duvel, but less hops. Weak aroma but rich flavor. Small but enduring head.

Have heard this is similar to Trois Pistoles, but havenít tried it yet. I like the Unibroue beers as well if not better than Chimay. The price difference isnít bad either. The nose is a bit citric with a slight spice undertone.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Blonde color, fizzy champaigne-like head. Huge, fruity, slightly citric nose. Very yeasty, with a big robust mouthfeel and peppery finish. Alcohol is fairly well hidden within the big body. Many similarities to Trois Pistoles - aroma especially. Mmmmm.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Has a yellow/orange color and a slight alcohol smell. Taste is similar to Trois Pistols, but it does not have the high alcohol flavor. I would get it again.

Another quality beer from Unibroue. Big, yeasty and belgian with a nutty and fruity smell and flavor. This is a good brewery.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2005 Not quite as interesting as Maudite. The cloudier the glass the better the taste. Need to mix up the citrus flavours to really enjoy. Malt is not that strong. Liquid Gold? OK!

Beautiful head that takes forever to dissipate when you pour it. Good flavor, a little more acidic than Iíd prefer but no biggie. Damn good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2010 I have tried to like Unibroue beers several times since the first time I rated them but I cannot get past the strong spicy/celery flavor and aroma that seems to be present in all of their beers. Very large and frothy head, nice golden clouded color. Flavor is initially sweet then powerful spice. A decent Tripel.

Very interesting to say the least. I needed to back off on my pouring a few times because the mighty head nearly overflowed. This one poors a cloudy mustard yellow with a huge head that will die down quickly after a sip or two and leave a nice creamy layer. The aroma is that of a mild malt mixed in with something of a nutmeg smell. The taste is very powerful as many have pointed out with a considerable tasting of that extra yeast and alcohol. The palate however is very happy with this rogue aftertaste, its a pleasant surprise, and once again, another above average blonde. I guess i will have to take back my original statement that the only thing good to ever come out of Canada was William Shatner...i guess Unibroue deserves a place up there too. Probably the biggest downer for this beer is the overwhelmingness of the yeast left from the triple fermentation process..sort of makes one cringe from time to time but gets better with every sip. Another must try again.
