COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Josh’s translation of the French description: La Fringante is a deluxe, triple-fermented beer born of a unique strain of yeast which gives it an unexpected finesse. A champagne-like effervescence, its vigourous presence in the mouth underlines its markedly strong personality of balanced flavours of spices, malt and hops.

Bottle shared with northropfrye, via cards04. Wow, I love this beer! Beautiful floral aroma. Perfect head. Nice lacing. Honey in colour. Taste is faintly sweet and very nicely floral. This is a perfect beer in my opinion.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2005 Well carbonated. Bright orangey-yellow with lite white foam. Rich spicy aroma. Yeasty and fruity flavours. Bubbles on the tongue. Enjoyable but how would I do in a blind Unibroue taste test of all these delicious but similar beers. Sweet but not overpowering. Alcohol is well hidden. One of my favorites from the big U.

Um, wow. The flavor of this beer is wonderful. It's a light flavor that developes as it goes down.

This bottle was 3 years old. Very fruity smell and taste (strawberries, citrus and coriander). Very clear body.

Yeast, citrus and spicey aroma. Hazy peach colour, huge foamy white head, moderate lace. So many flavours, apricot, lemon, pink grapefruit, bubblegum, wheat, trrific lemony after taste. Complex, incredible tongue tingle, like it's dancing in the mouth, dry to the point where one drinks more and more..... A wonderful example of the style, Well done Unibroue!

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Ah, what a beer!. THis is what I like a strong beer but with character, not just alcohol. The colour is great and the aftertaste is great, although strong.

cloudy golden-orange colour, few head, deeply complex aroma of spices and lemon with notes of orange, grapefruit, yeast and gingerbread tart and bitter, acid with a very long bitter gingerbread and citrusy finish - waouhh !

A smooth dangerous beer. Similar to 10 this is a golden/light straw coloured beer with a rich champagne effervescence and resulging belgian lace/mousse head. Underlying flavours are rich belgian fruitiness and buiscuit type flavours. It is similar to 11 but much more tempered.
