750ml bottle. Clear pale gold with a faint white head. Nothing too special but then again its still tasty. Typical Unibroue yeast, mild hops with a bit of citrus, wheat, pepper. Moderate body and carbonation, somewhat sweet, like the finish with a bit of dryness.

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a hazy dark toned straw topped a vivid fizzy white head showing minimal retention, low lacing capacities and lively carbonation. The nose is yeasty and fruity, apricot perhaps or muskmelon, and some weak grassy hops on the back. Pretty fluid mouthfeel, one of the rare light body brews from Unibroue, it comes through mostly fruity with some bready malts and faint grassy notes from the hops. Good but not great. Cheers!

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 7-26-2009 (Corked & caged bottle) This beer pours a large frothy, very very fizzy white head which mostly diminishes, hazy body, very little lacing, fizzy, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, wheat, yeast, sweet, fruity, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, fruity, coriander, malty, wheat, yeasty, and spicy. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer hits the spot so to say, somewhat of a thirst quencher and a beer I would consider drinking again.

Bottle from App Vintner - while it’s big and very oaky, it’s a bit boring. Meh?

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Not bad, but nothing special. Unibroue can do better. Sweet and bready, moderately yeasty.

aumax1 (288) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
750ml bière avec goût fruité, mais pas trop persistant ni trop agressant. Mousse bien généreuse. Peu d’arrière goût et d’amertume, à réessayer

rejtable (1749) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Nice enough but a bit unremarkable for me. Pours slightly cloudy dark straw with no head or lacing. Nose is fruity, maybe apricot with a hint of dough. Notes of apricot, some cereal some light grassy hops. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Lightish body with lively carbonation. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

At first pour it reminded me of drinking a wet spiral notebook. Notes of metal spiral with wet cardboard. As it opened up it had a nice crisp hoppyness left with some great yeast character. good beer.

bulldogops (1140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
750ml bottle while in Montréal. A hazy golden pour with a bubbly white head. Nose is sweet malt, coriander, spices, unibroue yeast. Taste is sweetness, peach, cookie malt, yeast, cloves, spiciness. Mild-medium alcohol warmth, leading to a dry, bitter, and spicy finish. Superb.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 Bière jaune dorée, voilée, très effervescente, surmontée d’un généreux col blanc et mousseux. Arômes principalement sucrés (malt mielleux et sucre d’orge) et fruités (agrumes, ananas, mangue…), avec levure belge (typiquement Unibroue) et épices (gingembre et coriandre surtout). Nez bien agréable, très belle complexité, très bonne intensité. En bouche, pétillement moyen-fort sur la langue avec un corps moyen, velouté. Au goût, plus frais et moins sucré qu’au nez, pain frais et grain, avec quelques notes de miel et/ou sucre d’orge. Saveurs également bien fruitées (fruits tropicaux bien frais, agrumes…), et c’est passablement acidulé. Les épices sont assez subtils et difficiles à discerner, il me semble percevoir surtout du gingembre, un peu de coriandre, du clou de girofle, et une petite touche de poivre. L’amertume est plutôt légère, et la finale apporte un houblon bien frais aux notes floral et citronné. En définitive, il s’agit d’une bien bonne bière, qui m’a assez surpris par sa grande impression de fraîcheur en bouche. Je m’attendais à quelque chose de plus lourd, plus sucré et plus épicé.
