3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is sweet containing notes of flowers, yeast, and elderflower. The color is hazy orange and it has a fine but disappearing head. The flavor is very sweet with dominating notes of honey, but also yeast, flowers, citrus, and corriander. It has a dry end from hops and corriander. The palate is quite good. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for trading me this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy pilsener golden with a small, white head. Very distinct yeasty aroma. Quite full and potent body with lots of alcohol. Flavour is sweetish malty with a yeasty note and - again - a pronounced alcohol feel. Solid if not exactly overly sophisticated. Typical Unibroue. 181105

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 2005-03-19, 2 years old bottle, 7-3-8-4-16=38
Both taste and aroma are malty and dry, with a late residual sweetness, a lot of coriander and a light fruitness. Warming
Hazy gold color, poor head. The simple edge of a Strong Belgian Ale, a bit fruity, but not able to fully hide the alcohol
Light amber color, cloudy; giant rocky head. Fresh aroma, fruity, citrus fruits, spicy (pepper and coriander). Fresh taste, malt, pretty sweet, good body strength, perfectly hiding the high alcohol content; spicy (pepper and coriander). I would consider it a Grand Cru (actually I don’t know if it contains wheat), for the spicy, fresh, citrusy character; really good example, but not impressive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 2005. Bit disappointed with this. Pale gold colour, cloudy with no head. Some lemon. Not a lot of anything else though. Bit of syrup. Bit yeasty and sweet and not that exciting
