UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 750 pours a bright yellow color with an exciting brilliant white head and streams of champagne like bubbles racing up to the top. the aroma is yeasty and slightly citrus peel like. The flavor is sweet, spicy, coriander, bread like, and smooth. The palate is nice for the color and the flavor. Overall, I like other Unibroue beers better, but they are all quite good.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - FEB 5, 2004
the aroma is orangy vanilla and peachy. it poured with a moderate head that quickly collapsed to a lace around the glass. the color is nice. slightly more yellow than polished copper. I poured it leaving the yeast and it came out crystal clear. the flavor comes of with a orange front fading into a sweetish caromel flavor with a bitter bite. there is a peppery flavor and some hop flavor. there is a little bannana in the finish developing along with some alcohol warmth. the body is moderate. not a bad beer but I think its a little on the sweetish side, making it a one bottle beer.

Bottle best by date – 10/16/06. As the boat Don De Dieu pulls into the harbor I notice her hazy bright golden color. This beautiful ship throws up a small white choppy froth of a head at her bow. Ropes flying this way and that the Don de Dieu slips into her berth. As she docks I notice the aroma of wheat, vanilla, and overripe peaches that emanate from her bowels. Finally, snug in her berth, I dare to sample with mouth and tongue. Her flavors are that of sweetness and wheat with oh-so subtle spices. Sailing around my mouth I feel her medium body, and yes she lingers in her berth with a certain sweetness. (An ode to a ship captained by Samuel du Champlain. All apologies to Rateberian – Vikingbeau, a poetic voice his own.)

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 This beer is crisp and light with a hint of citrus. I like that it works well with a meal or without.

It's always fun to try a beer with absolutely no style or flavor description on the bottle. But, what's with the twist-off cap? Pours very cloudy pencil yellow, speckled with floaties. The head quickly collapses, forming a white halo in the glass. Estery aroma, like the fermentation room at a winery, spicy and musky, banana cream pie, sesame seeds, and the barest whiff of citrus furniture polish. Flavors of yeasty vanilla and banana dominate, aided by light clove, wheatberry, and apple/pear. Becomes fruitier as it opens up. The 9% alcohol is well-hidden. Nice round body leaves a slick, glycerin feel on the tongue. Mellow aftertaste of yeast and buttered yellow summer squash. A hefeweizen on steroids!

Pours a somewhat hazy blonde color. Medium white head that dissipates quickly. Typically yeasty in aroma with definate hints of banana, and ethanol. It smells metallic to me also. Highly carbonated, and sweet. Definate fruit and spice, although mellower than La Fin Du Monde. High in alcohol content, but is hidden fairly well. Smooth, with a sweet finish.

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Yellow and hazy! Don’t know why this is better or worst than any other Unibroue, except that it is slightly lighter. Yeasty, bready, has some spice, but pretty light compared to many Unibroue products. Slighty fruity(bananas, pineapple, pears), spices such as very light coliander and maze. Sweet sugar flavors dominate. Good beer. Sweet finish.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Appearance was golden, slightly cloudy with quickly dissapating head and lace. It had a strong sweet, malty and yeasty nose with a very similar taste followed by a bitter alcoholic flavor and aftertaste. It was enjoyable but I like the Trois Pistoles better. (Not really fair to compare the two at the same sitting)

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Pale white/gold like a Blegian white. Foamy white head, diminished. Like other Unibroue beers, Blanche de Chambly, Fin du Monde. Smells of citrus, bubble gum/banana, coriander, and spices. Tastes mostly the same as it smells, bubble gum, lemons, and spice. Very nice rounded beer but too much like the others.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2004
Peachy aroma and flavor. Cloudy yellow in color. Pleasant aroma. Malty. Very nice beer.
