3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A beautiful hazy orange and golden body with a fizzy off white head. The nose is citrusy and estery with light notes of banana, cloves and apples. Mild toasted malts with a light crisp mouthfeel. The finish is moderate and a bit bland with a tad of Belgian flavour. Overall, a good brew but a bit bland.

really noticed the assorted citrus. Kind of malty during the aftertaste. Better than most from unibroue but not a standout

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice hazy orange colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, esters, grain, biscuit, floral hops, spice. The flavour more or less suit, heavy on the bread and grain notes, mixed with some spice, and orange citrus hops. Not bad, but there are better options.

341ml bottle. Clear copper-amber body, small white head, average retention. Aroma of spices and Unibroue yeast, caramel, honey, citrus and some booze. Harsh taste: caramel, yeast, spices, herbal hops, booze. Oily. Slightly disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange with a moderate tan head that remains and laces well. The nose has flowers, spice, caramel, fruit and that typical Unibroue yeast aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet with caramel, fruit and vanilla, along with a moderate amount of Belgian-style spice. Banana comes through. Hops are delicate and unobtrusive but emerge towards the end. The finish is long, malty and spicy with a slight pepperiness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Belgian-style strong ale with a nice fruity character and a beautiful creamy head. 2013-06-18

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Davey. Hazy light orange-gold with a lively creamy white head. Signature Unibroue yeast in the aroma, which I’ve come to find feels homey after not having had a Unibroue beer for a while. Sweet vanilla biscuits, wheat, honey, light phenolic spiciness. Just what I wanted from this!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange golden color with a pretty decent long lasting bubbly white head. Nose of banana, citrus, pears cloves and other spices and the standard yeast smell. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is a bit sweet with a phenol finish. Great as usual for unibroue.

Unibroue is far and away my favorite brewery in Canada. Being opened by Sapporo doesn’t hurt them in any way. Just awesome in every bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Belle bière ambrée, trouble et coiffée d’un col mousseux et éphémère laissant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes de fleurs, de pomme mûre et une pointe de vanille. Elle est peu amère, sans sucre résiduel et légèrement acide. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen/robuste, très effervescente et se termine sur de beaux arômes bien agencés.
