drdisque (775) - Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2015
From a bomber purchased at (guess where) Trader Joe’s. Rich well developed yeasty and spicy aroma. Full bodied sweet malty flavor with great balance and a buttery grain mouthfeel with only a slight alcohol burn. Outstanding Belgian style ale. Will stock up on more of these.

Metalchopz (3127) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2015
Purchased at Trader Joe’s in Vegas. Pours a hazy light golden-amber with an off-white head that disappears rather quickly, leaving not much lacing but a thin white cap above the brew. Aromas of Belgian Ale yeast with some nice spices, in the nose and taste. In the flavours, some orange notes which balances some sweetness with the spiciness. A very easy-drinking strong Belgian Ale, even easier than other Unibroue. Glad I could try this, but had to go to Vegas to do this.

slowrunner77 (10418) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2015
an as expected dry yeasty Belgian golden. Pretty decent bang for the buck, though not a favorite style. Lightly fruity with a fizzy body that covers the abv well.

asedzie (796) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 20, 2015
750 bottle. Pours hazy hay colored with dense white head. Nose has some citrus peel, wheat, very mild bubblegum esters, trace of coriander - very fresh aroma. Flavor has pale barley malt, a bit of texture from other grains, light spice - a bit of cardamom and coriander - lightly sweet and just a bit of fruitiness on the finish. Quite good - very nice bubbly and soft palate.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Hazy copper/orange with quickly dissipating head. Aroma of light bananas, orange, apricot, and light malt. Light body, citrus, apricot, light hop bitterness, and a dry finish

luttonm (4922) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2015
750ml. Hazy clean orange-yellow, ugly white cream. Spiced yeast aroma. Good body, well done tart carbonation and conditioning. Under-whelming.

JohnnyJ (5449) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour, with a white head. Fruity esters (pear, banana), lots of yeast character, bread, spicy, light clove, phenolic, and a bit herbal. Pretty good for what it is.

tightslice (1071) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma fruity esters, savory bread, bits of spiced ginger candy. Taste is crisp, lemony with savory herbal, ginger moments. Overall an excellent ale for the money ($5.99 USD).

Bottle. Cloudy amber color with very small foamy whitish head that disappeared immediately, vanilla-citrus aroma, low carbonation, slightly watery vanilla flavored Belgian yeast taste, lomgish finish. Nice but not really great.

smith4498 (3568) - Miami, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pours cloudy pale straw color with white head. Doughy Belgian yeast aroma with some coriander and other spices. Wheat and dough flavors with some spices. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not bad for a $6/750 ml bottle.
