3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle had many times recently revisited. Pours hazy amber color with a large beige head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, dark fruits, spices, the typical Unibroue yeast character, the fruit character grows with warming, some alcohol. Smooth, medium bodied, with a sweet, fruity finish. Another solid beer from Unibroue.

Aroma: yeast, bubblegum, dry plum; Appearance: dark red; medium head; Taste: medium sourness, slight bitterness; Palate: fizzy carbonation; slick texture, medium body, abrupt finish
Nice but a bit too sour and overwhelmed by plum aroma and bubblegummish yeast.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle to stout/porter glass.
Ap - 4 - nice murkey orange-red (burnt copper?) color with an off white had that sticks, but doesnít leave much lacing
Ar - 9 - Nice! Cherry, spice, belgian yeast, figs, dates, plums
Taste - 9 - Sweet, dark fruits, raisins, plums, figs, banana bread, dark bready notes, candy sugars
Mouth/Palate - 5 - High carbonation, medium-heavy mouthfeel, Alc covered. Aftertaste is dark fruits and bread.
Overall - 16/20 - Great beer. My favorite from Unibroue is probably La Fin Du Monde. It definitely measures up to the Belgian greats!

Bottle to pint. Best before 02-01-16. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with fluffy off-white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and dark fruit.Plum and raisin. Tastes like it smells, but more raisin-forward. Solid on the palate. A good example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is dark raw honey with a small off white head with heavy lacing left around the glass. Smells floral and wheaty with a bit of funk mixed in. Taste is leaves, lemon with a leather aftertaste. The carbonation was smooth and light medium. Eh....not my favorite from Unibroue.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle, pours cloudy orange-amber with almost no head. Aroma of red raspberries, caramel malt, dark bread, and somewhat woody. This is very dry, similar to a red wine in the flavor and palate. Lightly sweet, almost no bitterness or hop presence, slightly sour and earthy. Significant ethanol presence. This is by far the least favorite brew that Iíve had from Unibroue. Kind of watery for being 8% abv. Pretty boring, to be honest, donít agree with most of the reviews here.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
If Iím honest, this is the first letdown from the unibroue beers that I have tried. Maybe itís the bottle I got? No head at all. Had a bit of an underwhelming mouthfeel and the taste felt like it took awhile to kick in with each sip. Didnít taste strong. Some lemony citrus that I found that was pretty cool, but all around this is the weakest unibroue so far. Still decent, but worse than the others I will rerate with another bottle whenever

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle purchased at Hy-Vee Muscatine ($3) and poured into a globe glass at home. Brown, dark amber and hazy appearance with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, esters, dark malts, spices, clove, coriander and floral hops. Similar flavor, malty, mildly sweet, mildly spiced, lightly bitter and fruity with hints of orange peel. Medium body, a little thin, soft and smooth with a crisp, lingering, light hoppy finish. Pretty pleasant and easy to drink.
