Cloudy dull beige...was a sparkling golden til I dumped the yeast in. The aroma is yeasty, a little bit alcoholic, with some phenols, light lemon, sherry and stale grapes. A bit slick on the mouthfeel as the carbonation has started to dissipate. Malt-accented, with vague yeast, grape notes and some late pear. Held up reasonably well but I suspect it hasn’t improved.

Like drinking a piece of history. Pale yellow, cloudy beer with a thin white head. Upon opening, there was a strange phenolic aroma, slightly cheesy and slick tasting. Evolves fairly quickly to reveal some nice fruity peach/apricot notes, heavily spicy yeast. Unibroue’s house character is still on display. Flavour is a bit spicy, light citrus and apple flavour with a bit of breadiness. Not bad considering the age of the bottle.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle at Oncle Antoine in Quebec City. A pricey bottle, but this discovery made my evening! Hazy golden yellow with a big billowy head. Light fruity notes, with touch of alcoholic sweetness in the aroma. Very nice and fruity, with pleasant toasty malt and a moderate yeast presence. Medium effervescent palate. Quite enjoyable, and drinkable. Bottle coded SPK134, I have no idea if this is a rather old bottle or if its new and they are brewing it again, but this was very nice!

[1522-20080711] 341mL bottle. Wheat banana yeast aroma. Hazy, white brown body with a quick creamy white head. Lemon wheat yeast flavour. Light medium body. Quite drinkable.

Overheard: "A distant cousin of Blanche de Chambly but stronger and thicker."

Bottle (341ml) at ’Pub l’Oncle Antoine’, Quebec City. Pours a hazy bubbly gold with a large slowly diminishing frothy white head. Nice citrusy and spicy aroma with yeast and a mild sourness or tartness to it. Flavour, also nice, is pretty refreshing with citrus and spices, yeast and a light bitter finish. Goes down crazy easy. Alcohol totally hidden. Medium bodied. I must say, this is somewhat similar to their Blanche De Chambly -- still, this is a good, pleasant summer patio beer. Well done.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
12oz: Murky pale yellow, no head. Very spicy aroma, hard to pinpoint flavour. Interesting cookie maltiness hiding in there, spice bread, Christmas spices, this must have been pretty good back in the days to have kept that interest in the nose. As expected, on the tongue, it’s not quite as good, it really reminds me of a gruit with tart spicy lemony flavours over a bready and baked toast yeast profile. Still a pretty surprising medium body, but carbonation is long gone.

Bottle (341ml). Shared by blankboy with gregclow, jerc, mabel & tupalev. Woo Hoo! - awesome, Paul! Cloudy light orange pour, average white wispy head (3+). nice tart lemon/sweet malt aroma, very yeasty - classic sweet "Belgiums." Taste is also a smooth blend of lemon, yeast and sweet malt, light and not too alcoholic. Thick mouthfeel, solid carbonation, medium malty finsh - pretty solid tart/sweet brew - again, many, many thanks, Paul!

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2004 (Bottle) Many thanks to Rastacouere - I don’t know if he sells family heirlooms in exchange for beer but if that is what it takes - keep it up! Pours near headless, very cloudy with a dark unfiltered wheatbeer appearance. Nose was somewhat apple sauce though the undertones of squash, brown sugar, lemon and biscuit were still very apparent. Amazing that this has kept such a complexity after 8 years!!! Very pleasant and well balanced. Sweet and tart, flavours can be described as cardboard though the spice and dry finish still represent its initial character. What an honour to have tried the brew of this long forgotten ship.
