Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Cloudy amber sort of colour with an almost white head that leaves a solid layer of lace. A lot of spice and yeast on the nose with some latent fruit notes. Different on the palate; caramel and cinnamon with some other spice and a light cooked citrus fruit note. Finishes a little warm.

Wonderfully floral French Canadian beer. Beautifully balanced flavours with a mildly bitter finish. A must try for beer lovers.

kevinsenn (1022) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours hazy amber with a big beige head. Aroma of "Unibroue spice" and sweet malt. Dry up front, and staying dry with a mix of sweet and spice, particularly cinnamon. Bubbly mouthfeel.

NatKadaw (95) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
This is a small personality beer that screams unibroue with the unmistakable unibroue yeast taste and aroma. Mild citrus, orange peel and coriander. Certainly pleasant if you enjoy unibroue, but lacks the personality of the majority of their roster. Better than most, sub par for unibroue.

pootzboy (1578) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
750ml caged corked bottle - pours a cloudy amber -copper colored ale in the glass with a 3 finger off-white cap. Gorgeous spicy-Belgian funk aroma ith succulent fruit tones. effervescent-peppery mouth feel, med-light bodied, spicy-fruity character. Sturdy malt-hop fusion in the front is joined by a (pear/apple)fruity-yeasty-earthiness mid palate...yeasty funky finish with a ripe-fruit/malt after taste. First rate Belgian ale...one of their best offerings

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
750ml bottle from Coop. Beautiful orangey-amber colour, with a generous head. Medium high carbonation. Nose is citrus, spices, coriander, mild toffee and vanilla.. Full bodied for a lighter belgian, great balance between sweetness, unibroue yeastiness, and a mild floral, piney hop character. Cool beer.

Canmoore (232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
Pours a clear dirty amber colour, with a minimal head. Aroma notes include Unibroue yeast, apricot, pear, dried fruit, Sherry, and pastry. Tasting notes include fig, liquorice, nutty, slightly herbal, and a sweet dry finish. Nice brew! Would pair well with a hearty stew and pumpernickel!

Ferris (2923) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle - Caramel, banana, orange and yeast on the nose. Clear dark copper with a bubbly white head. Cloves dominate with other spices, dark malts and caramel with a yeasty finish. A little over carbonated, but I love cloves and would drink again and again.
