Gouts de fruits confits, noisettes et caramel encore une fois dominer par la levure phenolique de Unibroue.
Candied fruits, hazelnuts and caramel tastes... again overwhelmed by Unibroues phenolic yeast.

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.

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

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.

750 to Unibroue tulip! The beer pours a cloudy darkish amber with a small white head. The aroma is very much like a saison with elements of orange, pepper, spice, coriander, lemon and wheat. Fruity and estery, itís quite aromatic. Taste mirrors the aroma quite well...definite bitterness which could be because of an orange peel addition and there are notes of coriander too. Caramel malt flavours are present and are balanced against noble hops. The flavour is quite fruity, no doubt a contribution from the yeast. Palate is long lasting and the mouthfeel is medium. CO2 is also medium...and the flavours evolve from sweet/sour/bitter, leaving a bitter finish. Overall...another winner from Unibroue.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy orange amber color with medium creamy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, caramel, dark fruits and alcohol. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, follows by alcohol and fruity freshness, warming and spicy mouthfeel, while finish is light bitter. Full body, thick texture and average natural carbonation in palate. Damn good...

Large bottle from Haskells. Hazy mahogany color. Aroma is very pleasant. Sweet and dark fruit definitely prevalent. A really interesting Belgian-esque ale. Has sour elements and a heavy alcohol presence. Strong mouthfeel with near effervescence. Really enjoy this beer and will be sure to seek it out again.

From bottle. Description calls it mahogany in color, which seems appropriate. Exited bottle with a ton of frothy light head. Aroma is plum, brown sugar, candied malt, and light hops. Taste is plum and other sweet pitted fruit, light yeast, bubblegum, and slight hop bittering. The mouthfeel is like a bubbly liqueur. Finishes with a lasting aftertaste.
