Pours reddish brown with a tall off-white head that disappears quickly. This has a light fruity aroma. The beer has a lighter body than some of the other Unibroue ales Iíve tried, I would even say watery feel in the middle. Fruity And spicy taste. Plenty of tanginess. Typical champaign like character. excellent.

Opaque deep amber pour with off-white frothy head. Aroma of caramel/toffee and some raisins. Taste is sweet malts and dried fruit up front, followed by a decent helping of alcohol. Carbonation is very high with super fine bubbles... a little much for my liking. Not my favourite style, but a nice beer for a special occasion.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a 1-finger white head that lingers in lacing. Unmistakable orange peel and cloves aroma. Highly carbonated. Strong cloves presence in the flavor, with a tinge of banana and caramel. Tangy and a wee bit sour.

341ml bottle. Pours a murky garnet with a two finger creme coloured head of fine bubbles. Looks glorious. GLORIOUS! Itís going to be difficult not to compare this with Trois Pistoles, but nose wise, itís very similar. Red fruits, pastry dough, brown sugar, faint banana, wheat, raisin, and overripe fruit. As for taste, itís much drier, and less fruity than Trois Pistoles. Dried fruit notes without the sweetness, mild molasses, earthy notes, a little banana, and a complex finish that has some citrus, black tea, and clove. God bless you Unibroue. I love you.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: hazy brown, very thick beige head, could retain and lace a little better
Aroma: plum, fruit, lemon, sweet, caramel, smells good
Taste: molasses, caramel, plum, bit of hops at the end, but faint, coffee, some earth/grass in there
Palate: not overly carbonated, very faint hop aftertaste that fades quickly, leaves the mouth wet
Overall: pretty complex beer, very good beer, good for cold weather

caramel, roasty, grass, resin, alcohol, banana, bubblegum, dark orange, hazy, rocky head, tan foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, medium body, oily feel, lively, bitter, long finish
Dark cloudy orange pour with tan head of tightly bound foam. A slight lacing as foam falls. Aromas of Belgian yeast centering on fruity and resin. Slight roasted malt, fresh grass and some alcohol. Taste has some citrus (slight sour with orange rind bitter) with light bubble gum and dark fruit. Alcohol is subtle and blends nicely. Although a medium body, lively carbonation makes it lighter on the tongue with an oily feel. Finish is somewhat dry and a mellow bitterness persists. I recommend this beer.
