Bottle, at BA Throwdown #2. Pours a golden reddish color, creamy lacing, nice head. Bright cider nose, Belgian yeast, some mellow notes. Creamy notes of vanilla and caramel. Some interesting creamy maltiness, with lots of wheat. Drinkable, held up very well, very good.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Tasted 8/19/08. 750ml cork and cage. Upon opening, the cork is stinky and darkened. Pours a hazy body with a golden orange hue. Slight trace head with no pop when it was opened. Candy nose with hints of grapes, citrus and berries. Good nose! Ever so slight vinuous note. Full bodied with a solid yet melded burn. Typical Unibroue character with a nice mix of citrus and honey. Medium roasted sweet malts. As complex as this beer is, I keep going over and over the honey and citrus flavors. Stickt finish with a faint slight hop character. So smooth with flavors of graham crackers and lemon acidity. Moderate effervescence. So good! And I still have one left!

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2008
[1512-20080704] 20floz bottle. Florally sweet malt aroma has heavy hay straw notes and hints of floral lemon. Murky, light brown orange body with quick white bubbles and lots of floaties. Belgian yeast flavour also has muted hay and malt and lemon yeast. Medium body seems a little flat. Interesting to try, holding its age fairly well.

Aside: This was the bottle jerc and I brought back with us from Montreal c/o Glouglouburp via HogTownHarry for tupalev, who then kindly shared it with us!

Courtesy of BeerBuzzMontreal, thank you! I was fully aware this brew was about 6-7 years of age.. rendering it a completely different animal then it was originally intended. Poured orange hue. Taste was toffee and alcohol. Reminded me, unfortunately, of Lucifer with a quarter shot of vodka. Some citrus notes apparent. Medium bodied. Tasted like it was once legendary, but a little too aged- yielding it difficult to rate.

750mL split with pwn3d. Pours a bright cloudy orange with small head. The aroma is fruit and alcohol. Im guessing this is around 15% abv now that its aged for several years. The taste is very strong - with fruit again. I wish I could try this when it was first released. However, still a good beer considering the high alcohol.

Lots of people to thank for this one. First off to Harry - who saw that I was in search of this and posted it in the Eastern Canada forum to see if he could trade for it, for me (thanks Harry!). Next to rastacouere, who generously donated the bottle for nothing in return (yet! It will be repaid) - such is the generosity of a great ratebeerian! And finally thanks to Jerc and Mabel for carting this back from Mondial for me - now that’s a team effort! I shared the bottle, now very nicely aged, with Jerc, Mabel and Jon. Nice yeasty aroma - fruity, musty. Medium yellow, hardly any head. Great taste - very fruity, very sweet, very strong (still). Complex yet very drinkable, but potent - this has aged wonderfully well - a truly great beer. Thank you everyone!!

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2008
750mL bottle dated January 9, 2003. Poured brilliant brighter golden with a short-lived cap of white head and a whole lot of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up stronger peppery spices with medium-skinned fruits laced with alcohol.. digging deeper unearthed some oaky and tannin notes, very faint vinegar-dusted cherry, and another layer of fruit. The flavor had more of the fruit with a strong yeasty component (black pepper and banana mostly).. some lighter sherry-like oxidation notes around the edges (which worked well here).. finished warm, but remarkably well-balanced. Medium-bodied and almost slick on the palate with high carbonation.. really bubbled up and got tacky right at the finish. This held up very well, just sweetening up a bit and changing the texture.

Ratman197 (13886) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2008
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of pear, apple, light spice, light carmel and a hint of yeast. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, pear, spice and light pineapple with a smooth lingering spice finish.
This beer aged very nicely!
