3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is banana and spices, especially cinnamon and clove with a bit of pepper and nutmeg. Relatively complex aroma, average strength.
Appearance: Hazy straw, with nice thick and sparkling head lasting quite long. Not a lot of lacing.
Taste: Attack is sparkling and very spicy. We find notes of banana, cinnamon, clove, orange and nutmeg. Typical Abbey style, very spicy. So sparkling that it almost numb the mouth. Spices are all over and tingling the tongue. Malt is also giving a good base with notes of caramel and vanilla. A tasty beer with a good flavor complexity.

Golden pour with quick, white head and miniature bubbles. Aroma of sweet sugar, biscuity yeast, dried prunes and pepper. Taste follows... lots of fruity sweetness. Carbonation is quite high, with an almost soda-like fizz. Quick finish with only mild bitterness and some alcohol warmth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (341 ml). Thanks to czar! Slightly hazy orange with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast (Unibroue signature), orange peel (citrus), spices, mint and candi sugar. Taste is moderately sweet, yeasty, orange peel, spices, candi sugar and slight bitterness. Medium body. Alcohol is present. Not bad, but not as good as La Fin du Monde. Good balance, decent drinkability and complexity.

Un couleur orange avec une mousse moyenne qui reste pour 5 à 10 minutes. Carbonation forte. L’arôme de fruits (zeste d’orange) et de levure. Le goût est pareille, mais avec une presence forte d’alcool.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341mL bottle, pours a cloudy pale orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange peel skins, citrus, loads of Belgian yeast, more citrus peel, and a bit of apple skins. Flavour of apple skins, loads of Belgian yeast, citrus peel, more citrus and a tad of candied sugar. Fruitier and sweeter than La Fin du Monde. Complex and yeasty, tasting very signature Unibroue. Not as amazing as La Fin du Monde, but excellent nonetheless and quite complex.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy glowing brown with zero cap...... I mean not one single bubble lasted more then five seconds after the pour. Yep smells like Unibroue! Yeast, apple, ginger, lemon, and so on, and so on............ fairly mild really. Taste is good, real good! Big ginger, lemon, woody malts, nice and yeasty, and all is well with the taste. No trace of any alcohol, very sweet finish, vanilla shows up to. Beer is turning into a big apple bomb. Good carbonation, warms the stomach, I feel happy now..........YAAAAA 10% beer!!
