3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2000 bottle enjoyed June 5 2004 at Tiggmtl’s post Mondial 2004 Hazy dark golden yellow body with a smallish off white film of a head. Flavour has a hint of mint that at first I thought I had imagined, some spice and a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel is decent, but shows its age in a finish that is a bit watery, though still has a warming effect on the through. In inexplicably good shape in its delightful highlights, but limps away like an aging punchdrunk boxer. Many thanks to whomever brought this one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2000 bottle had at the saturday gathering of Mondial de la bière 2004 Very light amber body. Thin off-white film. Aroma has that dry yeast pencil shaving characteristics that I love in Saison. Mild alcohol, rather complex peachy fruitiness. Abundance of spices, pepper, mint. Very pleasant aroma. In mouth, there’s an initial tasty attack, lemony, fruity, yeasty with heather notes, spices a plenty, but it, too quickly, fades away and become a little still. The time slowly won the battle against this legendary Quebec beer. RIP.

Sans Nom 2000
Amber/orange colour, long lasting head. Yeast, alcool, orange peels and icing sugar aroma. This beer has a full palate, warming mouthfeel which finishes on a sugary note mixed with hop bitterness. It seemed a bit similar to Delirium Tremens. I’ll go drink a bottle of it and see. It doesn’t have that much in common with delirium tremens after all. I like Sans nom better.

Not available in NJ. The spices, hops and carbonation were quite nice. I’d like to try more!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A ephemeral strong ale/tripel that was laden with assertive oranges and beautiful hops…Sugary yeast and a pleasant acidity to boast for yet another Unibroue success…Sadly, my last bottle was past its prime…

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Kind of like mini Don de Dieu (nose and color).Nose is very similar with cherry,ceral and vanilla notes.Very good carbonation which differs a bit from Don de Dieu.Taste is crisp and curacao-like.Overall,i think it is Unibroue’s hidden gem.Very hard to find and surely not widely distributed.Sadly so.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yellow-deep orange colour, cloudy, tall, whipped cream-like head, beatiful Belgian lace. Alcoholic, tripel-like aroma. well balanced flavour, fruity with hints of bananna, apple and vanilla. Bock like in its malt complexity. This is one of the best that Unibroue has to offer.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 2000 tasted in 2003. With age the complexity of the unibroue yeast really elevated. Less dominant and tasting quite thick, almost leathery. Nice fruitiness with some pepper and definitly a noticeable alcohol kick.
