3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Very dark copper color. Aroma is yeast and prunes. Taste is lemon, spice, raisins, some booze and a little bit of yeast sourness. I’m becoming a bit more of a fan of the style, which I used to hate, thanks to trying excellent brews like this.

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 doesn’t 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!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 I’ve had from Unibroue. Kind of watery for being 8% abv. Pretty boring, to be honest, don’t agree with most of the reviews here.
