Beautiful reddish color, hazy. Nice light aroma. Bursts on the tongue with carbonation. Another good Unibroue beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice, but not outstanding. Pours a hazy red/copper, surprisingly large carbonation bubbles (could have been the effect of my glass, though) and a bit of yeast at the bottom. Nice, drinkable flavors, but slightly weak (compare Victory V10, which is at the opposite end of the flavor intensity spectrum), yeasty, fruity, slightly sweet. Goes down shockingly fast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of wheat and spice, vanilla comes out as brew warms. Pours a clear coper with amber highlights. The large off-white fizzy head is mostly lasting with fair lacing. The flavor is balanced but not particularly deep, and just a tad sweet. The medium dry body is fizzy with a very dry finish. Nothing outstanding about this one, but I would drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 Pours a murky amber. Nice aroma: malt and dark fruit with spices and yeast. Mellow fruit flavors with yeast and malt. The spicy blend lingers in the aftertaste.

alcohol, yeast, and sweetness abound in the nose. the golden red body holds up a head that is comprised of huge bubbles that dissipate fairly quickly thanks to the high alcohol. the flavor has lots of fruits and lots of alcohol in it with a little bit of a yeast bite in the end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich copper colored, huge coarse head on pour. Noticibly malty, high ABV covered reasonably well. Touch of bitterness. Good ale overall, however I preferred the sweet, golden La Fin Du Monde. For some reason I am amused by the concept of a flying canoe.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spice and apple in the aroma. Nice white head, good carbonation, appearance looks a lot like cloudy apple juice. Malty, spicy, and a hint of fruitiness in the flavor. ABV is not noticeable.
