Pale gold, a bit hazy. Small head that left pretty quick. Big yeast/wheat/bread nose. Some hops there. Nice flavors. Bready and yeasty. Some clove and banana. Some more spices. Malt is lying underneath the other flavors. Medium bodied, smooth palate, and a slightly hoppy finish. Very good. I'm liking.

Hazy gold color. Pungent citrucy and hoppy aroma. Broad taste with wonderful citrus and spice overtones. Dances on the back of the tongue.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2003
This beer had a really nice and refreshing aroma. But it poured a hazy light orange, with a thin white head that didn't last. The aroma was like citrus juice. Orange and grapefruit mainly. And it was slightly spicey. Very little zing on the tongue. Orange peel and wheet. Slight dry finish. This was an OK beer, but not Unibroue's best. Really reminded me of a witbier.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Very spicey and fruity aroma. Spicey, fruity, sweet malt and candy sugar flavors. I agree with Prostman it has the corriander spice and some orange peel flavor like a wit beer but much stronger. This is a very good beer!

Very spicy and somewhat witbier-like. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

jgb9348 (5920) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Hazy golden colour with a super dense brite white head. Aroma of alcoholic bananas, some curacao and some apples, but pretty much all fruit. Sweetness comes off the top as well, as a result of all those fruits being fermented. Full-bodied; Strong alcoholic taste of bananas, yeast, apples and wheat. Seemingly flat for the gigantic head on the pour. A decent beer, the alcohol is still very noticeable, but the sweetness makes dealing with that burn a bit easier. Regardless, I'd rather have many other belgian strongs than this Unibroue. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 17-December-2003.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Slightly hazy golden color with a fizzy and fast disappearing head-well carbonated. Fruity aroma, apple and apricot with a bready note. Mildly tangy and soft on the tongue with citrus, vanilla and alcohol flavors and a medium sweet finish. Nice flavor but a bit boozy IMO.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2003
Light yellow-orange hazy colour, not much of a head. Aroma of apple and pears with the Unibroue signature smell. The taste was a little boring, alcoholic. A bit like tonic water or ginger ale. Dissapointing in the light of Unibroue's other great beers. Bottle.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Lighter yellow, some haze, white head diminishes quickly. Fruity aroma of citrus and apple along with some yeast. Flavor was sweet and fruity, some yeast again. Pretty crisp but mine seemed a bit flat. Was OK, but there are defintely better Unibroue beers out there.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Pale yellow in color. White head quickly fades. Lots of bubbles. Did not detect anything remarkable about the aroma. Same with the taste. A good Belgian but not a great one.
