Golden orange color, big suddsy white head settles fast with good lace. Spicey citrus aroma with light hints of yeast. Flavor was initialy spicey with more citrus fruit flavors and a sweetness like white grapes that have just a little bit of tartness. These initial flavors faded into a slighty yeasty phenolic taste. Mouth feel was quite lively with carbanation and spice. The after taste calmed down the palate with a nice slightly sweet malt smoothness.

12oz. BB date 06: Hazy golden,with streaming carbonation. Frothy head,settles,leaves lovely lace. Aroma is yeasty,quite hoppy,with supple amounts of aromatic malts. Full mouthfeel,kind of fizzy,big body. Chewy pale malts and wheat are followed with tons of yeasty esters. Finish starts with breadiness(malt) and ends quite hoppy. So very,drinkable. Haven't had this in a couple years,going to have to keep this one around. Might be my fav from Uni.

ukoolaid (580) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Bottle. Hazy yellow/orange color with large white head. Aroma is a nice balance of malt, hop, and sweet fruit. Taste is nicely malty but has a nice dry finish. Flavors are fruity and spicy. I would really like to have this again because I was just trying a friend's glass to rate this. I want one of my own damn it. Good stuff.

Jayb0 (1197) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Surprised I never rated this. Lovely beer with flavors or orange and honey, almost liqueur-like in the middle. Spicy finish. Yellow-gold, quickly receding head. Aromas of yeast and citrus.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Creamy wheaty golden yellow color. Nothing really new but a solid beer. Has an alcohol smell and taste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Blond golden color with light head and light lacing. Light belgian esters (banana/clove) with a slight yeast and bubblegum finish. Flavor is well balanced, not much alcohol, light body, well made.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2004
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.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
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.

3.8
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!
