3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very smooth and complex belgian. Coriander, caramel, and a little hop bitterness all blended well in the initial taste. Finished a little bit drier, but a good all around brew. Masks the alcohol very well.

Slightly cloudy amber with a large creamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, butter, alcohol. Good carbonation. Alcohol, pepper taste but the alcohol tste and warmth dominate as this becomes one dimensional.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not as good as the other Unibroue beers, but still worthy. A little too over the top on the yeasty flavors, but all is still well with this drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Appealing bright amber color with dense white head. Very fine yeast sediment has an intoxicating swirling action in the glass if a little gets decanted. Very sniffable, with tart fruit and spice notes. Tongue-numbingly medicinal flavors. Spicy, slightly peppery, underlying sweetness. Somewhat complex, the phenolic character fades a bit after a few sips.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice orange-gold body with swirls of sediment dancing in the glass. Thick rocky off-white head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Flavor is spicy sweet with yeasty notes, very carbonated. Alcohol well hidden. I am beginning to become a big fan of Belgian Strongs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Nice orangish-amber color with a quickly dissapating light light tan head. Somewhat of a citrus-like aroma-maybe ginger as well? Palate has very low viscosity and isnt as thick as the other 2 unibroue’s ive had. There is notable carbonation-similar to trois pistoles. The flavor matches its aroma--not too strong, but you really have to work to pick out the mild hints. Finish is pretty smooth, without much of an aftertaste. 8% Ethanol is hid quite well.(8/4/8/4/16 4.0)------- 7/28/07-------& ounce bottle. Aroma is fruity, pineapple-like, estery one which is typical of the Unibroue yeast strain. There is a moderate spiciness present in the aroma. A few sweet hints are also detected retronasally. Moderately hazy amber-copper body present with a large, frothy, creamy off-white head present. It leaves some nice lacing. Spritzy, carbonated start which seems a little lacking flavorwise. The middle has plenty of roasted malts going on with a touch of yeast’s fruity esters. Pineapple. Finishes a bit spicy and has a nice, warming sensation. I don’t know, the flavor on this seems more subdued that I would care for. Above rating is for the re-rate.
