NTO one of the best form this brewery, but still is veyr good. Although a little incipit it has a honey good taste. A little dakr int he orange features and good aftertaste. Specially at the bottom.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2009
Very bright light gold with a good bubble ring, looks good for what it is I guess. Malty sweet aroma with slight banana and a bitter that has no sent to it. Sweet bready flavor with a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. The is a slight chemical flavor what I cant pin down. Nice clean highly drinkable taste but I would go out of my way to drink another thats for sure,

ChadPolenz (1700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Poured a 11.2oz bottle into a tumbler

Appearance: Dark amber color, almost completely transparent. Forms a small, white, sudsy head which evaporates quickly and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Darker larger aroma with slight honey aroma.

Taste: The brewery classifies this as a pilsner, but its much more in the tradition of a Vienna style lager. More emphasis on toasted, nutty malts with honey sweetness throughout. Lower bitterness and clean aftertaste make it quite refreshing, actually. Not a very robust palate, and perhaps a touch of tang as the beer warms. Not as grainy as a fizzy yellow beer, but not as robust as a Sam Adams or Brooklyn lager.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, with a crisp effervescence.

Drinkability: Highly quaffable and refreshing. Not much taste to work with as far as food pairings, so it works as a liquid refreshment. Definitely sessionable at 4.9% ABV.

Overall, an average beer to be sure, but one that would make an ideal gateway beer for fizzy yellow beer drinkers.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006
Golden color with a small white head. Its a well done honey lager, sweet and watery. I know unibroue could have done better, but you have to take it for what it is, I liked it!

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Golden-amber. Thick head. Caramel with lightly crackery notes. Honeyish backdrop. Overall, a fairly boring beer, where the honey note is the only thing even remotely fun.

lesifflebiere (1692) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Ambre, fonce avec tons dorang, trs grosses bulles mais pas de mousse, mince. Au nez, du houblon et de la cassonade, avec de lherbe et des noix, accompagns dorange, alors quun bouche on retrouve une toute petite pointe damertume derrire un voile finement sucr. On ne sattendait pas moins de la part dUnibroue, nempche, on est surpris quelle soit russie ; bien balance, simple, elle impressionne par sa qualit. Saveur un peu fade au final, par contre.

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.
