This stuff is great. Citrus aroma present immediately, accompanied with a mildly spicy smell. Taste is lemon, and apples? Body is a cloudy yellow, with what looks like yeast sediment in there as well. One of my favourites from Unibroue.

This "Gift of God" was a pleasant surprise. This sits nicely between a belgian witbier and a trippel. The aroma was sweet, mostly of hay and lemon. The unfiltered golden appearance was topped with a flat head. Great balance of sweetness and spiciness - with coriander and orange peel. Lively mouthfeel, with a dry and refreshing finish. Comparable to a mix of La Fin Du Monde and Hoegaarden White.

obxdude10 (2366) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2004
Golden in color, very little head, huge fruity nose, flavor is pretty well balanced but a bit too sweet for me, hints of citrus & spicy yeastiness, very smooth & crisp

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 A little on the sweet side with a touch of that chalky dryness to it. Not one of my favorite Unibroue’s but still a good beer. Rerate (2004-12-09) - Dry but no chalkyness this time, quite a bit better.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2004
Pours cloudy gold with a full white head and good lace. Aroma is apricot, citrus and yeast. Flavor is malty, spicy and sweet. Citrus and yeast. A mild bitterness and alcohol finish provides a good balance. Mouthfeel is full and very carbonated; alive. A very nice beer. Another favorite from Unibroue.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Honestly, I don't know how I have not rated this one, I've had it long ago, but somehow slipped up on this one. Perfect balance of head on this one, topping off a rich golden yellow. Aroma is yeasty, spicy and quite well rounded. Flavor is a sweet malty flavor. Mouthfeel is somewhat crisp and oil at the same time.

Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Pours a Light amber in color with a head that lasts most of the brew. Light flavors with a dry finish. The alcohol content is barely noticable.

wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2004
This beer has a fantasic aroma, but the aftertaste is rather flat and dull. Definitely worth trying except for the fact that the results might be slightly below par.

3.5
SpringsLicker (3664) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2004
This has a cloudy pale yellow body with a substantial head that supports a decent lace on the sides, but diminishes rather quickly. Sour lemon aroma with malt in the background. Crisp and dry. Light in flavor and body. Interesting beer.

3.8
sloth (2930) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2004
XL white head, fair retention. Hazy gold color.Light yeasty nose, fruity,some bananna notes. Medium body. Mellon flavors, malty/breadyness, fruit and hints of bubblegum. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish is dry and fruity. Highly quaffable at 9% alc..
