4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
this beer reminds me of autumn, the color of changing leaves and apple butter. medium, consistent head. slightly cloudy after adding yeast. aroma is full of apples and burnt fruit (raisins, apricots). tingling mouthfeel, although a little bit thin. quite complex flavor, tart, full of spice, and a touch of astringency. definitely in your face. finish is dry and slightly alcoholic. not perfect, but very enjoyable.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Have you ever in your life seen better labels on beer than those by the Unibroue brewery in Quebec? That being said this is a monstrous beer. Possibly the finest produced in North America and better than many of the beers it is attempting to copy, such as Duvel (Limited).

Slightly cloudy orangy/brown. Nice white head and lace. Nice ’belgium’spicey nose of apples and maybe cloves?? Taste similar to a Weizenbock, malty, some citric acidity, spicyness.Superb balance. Very smooth and quite drinkable for 8%. Will kick your ass.

I was really suprised with this stuff. I randomly pull it out of a cooler at a UCLA football game and said to myself...’What the hell is this shit!?!’
My brothers, friends, and I thought the label was the coolest thing ever. Anyway, when I drank it and was expecting something nasty it turned out to be very good! Most importantly, it was my first beer, so I was in perfect sense. Sadly, I have no idea where I could possibly find more of this stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2003 A powerful spicy fruity ale with a peachy alcohol aroma. I had a 12oz bottle and can't wait to try a bigger one. 12-29-01: I'm sipping a 25.4 oz and I don't remember rating the 12oz bottle of this. After checking the bottle pile, yes I had it before. I'm knocking the palate to a 5. Great beer, way to keep them Belgians working! Like Chimay, but more offerings at half the price.

A nice red ale. Fits well in the Unibroue product line, between the rich, strong Trois Pistoles and the clean, citrusy La Fin du Monde. Insignificant head, yeasty, winy aroma. Flavor is malty, not too sweet but finishes with a hint of sourness which detracts some from the overall experience.

Hard for my inexperienced palate to rate. An odd, interesteing beer.

Beautiful autumn gold color, a hint of haziness, nice head, fine, lasting carbonation, great aroma. Complex, interesting taste with a hint of lemon or orange, moderate malt taste. Flavor that lingers and blooms into your nose. Worth the money! A beer to savor with good friends who are worth it.

Another classic from unibroue.
copper colour not much head or carbonation
bittle-conditioning leaves it a little hazy.
nice zesty citrus and malt sweetness tastes that disguise the alcohol content well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fading eggshell-brown foam quickly leaves the surface without any cover. Amber-brass color with but little bubbles. The aroma is closed, with some maltiness. The flavor is malty, of low-intensity, good foam in the mouth, medium body, a malty-yeasty taste sticks to the teeth. All in all this beer lacks complexity and intensity, but has a pleasant malty-yeasty aftertaste, and the alcohol rounds off any edges. A good effort, but...thanks Trappist Bro!
