3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber color. Strong fruity buttery aroma. A flavor explosion in your mouth including significant malt sweetness, fruit and some spice. Heavy bodied, highly carbonated, and no overt alcohol taste. Very good beer.

Finally, something from Unibroue that didnít dissapoint me, smells great, not as sickeningly sweet as others from Unibroue.

Another worthy product from our friends to the North; at first I was a bit apprehensive of the cloudiness in my glass, which seemed a bit much even for a bottle-conditioned strong ale; the spicy nose is not overwhelming, but very nice. Flavor is explosive, rich, sweet -- whoever called it a weizenbock I think nailed it; bit too alcoholic on the palate for me. Still, a great beer, whatever style you want to put on it.

Better than average on the mouthfeel, but the taste was a bit dissapointing. Not as complex as I was hoping. Lots of yeast and malt in the nose and flavor profile, but nothing outstanding. Good hazy bronze color with a thick, rocky head. Quality, but nothing to write home about.

Orange in color, not as strong as some of the other Belgians, nice finish.

This stuff isnít quite as nuclear as Fin (another Unibroue product) but every bit as good if not better. How they made this meaty a beer this smooth befuddles me. After your first sip you will sense the explosion of flavor sliding down your throat... very very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Coppery, creamy head, yeast particles visible. Spicy citrus aroma (oranges), slightly floral. Nice spice component dominates the malt, notes of orange, cinnamon sugary. Finish is very sweet and sugary but soft and well balanced...perhaps a bit too sweet as it warms.
