Med brown color, small head. Heavy malts and hops, malts are slightly sour and spicy. Large body. Mouthfeel is fluffy (carbonated). Finish is spicy and slightly sweet. Aftertaste has an almost perfume-like sweetness to it, yet slightly sour and bitter. Very different beer.

I had a couple of that one and it was very good. Nice spicy (but not too mutch) taste.
No Unibroue best one but still very good !

Did I say that Canada can’t produce a good beer?......well, I take it back. This really surprised me. Beautiful cloudy orangey brown with a nice head; I smelled this for the first time and was kind of confused, thinking maybe I misread the label and the distributer was Quebec and the Brewer was out of Belgium, but this is truly Canadian. A bit overcarbonated, but this is only a problem because it slightly masks the wonderful flavor. Tastes of fruit, cloves, and alchohol. Very, very nice....Canada, you’ve been saved. Did I mention how much merit there is in a label as cool as this one. One of my favorites.

Mario D’Eer considers it as a Weizenbock and I can understand it - amber-brown colour, fine head, complex spicy, yeasty aroma and flavour, nutmeg, sweet, alcohol, honeyish and bitter, long aftertaste - a beautiful beer

It has a beautiful, strong head with a reddish cloudy colour. Malty, spicy with a beautiful bitterness.

I’m not a big fan of this style (yet), but this wasn’t too bad. Creamy mouthfeel, fruity and not as sour as some of the others.

I am begining to like Belgian ales more and more. This particular beer is full of flavor. It incorporates a spiciness with a slightly sweet fruit backdrop. True to style the flavor strengthens as it warms. Its head quickly fades leaving behind a soft lace. Slightly reddish in color with a mysterious haze. A very well made beer.

Deep dark amber in color. Aroma is sweet with apple, caramel, raisin and spice. Taste is complex as well. 8% ABV you could have fooled me this is very smooth and drinkable. Good interpretation of a Belgian ale from Unibroue.
