CapFlu (4550) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2006
(Bottle) Purchases at Le Goblet in Vaudreuil for $1.19. Pours a smallish white head and a copper body. Nose is honey and tin. Flavour is terribly canned veggie with a overpowering caramel maltedness. This stuff is so Sleemans!

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Sampled at Mondial 2006. Dark gold color with an off white colored head. Honey smells with some pears and vanilla. The taste was fairly dry with some peat. There is not much else to taste. One dimensional, possibly some apricots.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle: Poured a dark clear amber color lager with a small bubbly white head with no retention. Aroma of corn with some sweet malt is pretty gross. Taste is bland, boring and inoffensive. Wow, canít believe Unibroue is now producing boring sweet corn adjunct lager now.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2006
[bottle] Syrupy yellow color, sweet sugar aroma. Flavors are pretty gross- sweet sugary corn, and way too much carbonation. I had to pour this one out.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Sample from the bottle (341 ml) at the Mondial de la BiŤre in Montreal, 2006. I am surprised that none of my Montreal brethren have rated this yet...did it debut at the Mondial? If so, I can understand their reluctance; they see potentially the equivalent of Charlie Trotter debuting "Big Mac de Trotter" at a gastronomical celebration in Chicago; Karlheiz Stockhausen with his new piece "Symphonic Poem from the works of Vanilla Ice" in Berlin; Toni Morrison coming home to Ohio to read from her new collaboration with Danielle Steele, "Milkman goes to Hollywood". <!-- p --> Itís too depressing. They canít face it. They canít add, try, or rate this sell-out product, this most obvious example of the unholiest of marriages in the beer world.<!-- p --> But what if theyíre wrong? Whatís in a name, after all? Havenít most of us experienced beer tasters had at least ONE honey beer thatís been decent? Isnít it worth a shot? Well, if theyíre not game, I am. <!-- p --> Dark clear orange with a tiny head, no lacing....faint honey at first in the nose, but vegetal/DMS character shows up quickly....honey-sweet, sugary and sticky with lots of (apparently) forced carbonation....tastes artificial and somewhat medicinal, and mostly undrinkable.<!-- p --> Goodbye, Unibroue the Great.
