Beautiful orangey-amber colour, with a generous head. Very effervescent. Notes of citrus, spices, caramel in the nose. Very complex. Sometimes vanilla. Full bodied and complex, sweet, followed by and explosion of flavours. Clearly the best.

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.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
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.

Entirely Belgian in character, but not what I expected. It’s a blend of styles. The appearance and ABV suggest that it would be similar to a Dubbel, but the flavor has more dark fruits, raisins, and some vanilla. Almost like a lighter-bodied variation of a Quad. Complex and enjoyable.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Chimay glass. Wow, nice aroma. Initital notes are citrus: orange, tangerine and mandarin. Also a good amount of spice. Not too big, but seems like a good amount. Appearance is a good murky burnt orange, with a whitish head that looks like it will last for days. Taste isn’t quite as good as the aroma. The spice comes through in the taste and the aftertaste, but no real distinguishing feature otherwise. It’s good, but not super impressive. Feel is also good, but not really, really full bodied. There’s a nice tingle all the way through, though.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Belle apparence, mousse tirant vers le crémeux mais qui meurt un jour (ne le faisons nous pas tous?). Arôme de levure, de vieilles bananes molles, d’alcool bien enrobée, une présentation riche. Au goût, plus mince qu’imaginé, mais d’une belle qualité tout de même. La petite soeur de la Fin Du Monde avec trois fois plus de bananes!

Pours slightly hazy and orange-amber with very frothy white head. Aroma has strong fruity scents - banana, and spice, and a little musty. Taste is medium sweet with a bit of a tangy finish.

pours hazy golden orange with a creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. very spicy and yeasty - unibroue-like (duh), caramel and toasted wheat, bit of honey, coconut and vanilla, bitter herbs, bit of phenols and butter - in a butterscotch manner, hint of acidity, candi and candies (!), warming alcohol. lively to average carbonation, light to medium body- oily, grassy-earthy and astringent finish. nice stuff.

Lagerboy (1662) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
750 ml corked & caged bottle. Clear first pour, orange copper, foamy off-white head slowly settles and lasts. Yeasty, spicy fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, some citrus and the usual yeast strain, lightly spiced, clove and coriander, light floral hops and some noticeable caramel malt behind. Lively carbonation and lighter bodied. Second pour is hazy with yeast sediment. Another well made fruity Belgian style ale. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

GothGargoyle (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Cloudy dark orange with a decent yellowy pale head. Aroma is yeast, candied apple, pear, stone fruit. Slight creamy mouthfeel, medium body, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Taste is nectarine, apricot, dried apple, mango. Not bad.

750 ml bottle. Pours a murky orange-brown with a short lived white head. Aroma is earth, caramel, belgian yeast. Flavor is earthy, toffee, spicy. Finish is sandy, spicy, lemon tartness. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Good.
