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

jgb9348 (6281) - 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.

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.

Ungstrup (37685) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of peach, oranges, and yeast. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge but fast disappering head. The flavor is extremely sweet - too sweet for my taste. With strong notes of peaches, apples, oranges, alcohol, and corriander. It ends on a combination of lemon and corriander with the sweetness lingering. An OK beer, but a bit too much alcohol and a little too sweet. The flavors though are magnificent. Thanks to Alex (Fiulijn) for trading this with me.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Clear golden ale (function of temperature?), pours a creamy head that quickly fades; no lace. Taste reminds me of champagne/white wine: alcohol, acid, apples, flower, citrus tang. Minimal barley malt, good wheat, dry (not sweet)

3.5
RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Light blonde Belgian style beer, with a fruity Belgian beer aroma. The flavour is strong but lacking any real quality. Overall a basic Belgian style beer, slightly overrated.

3.5
DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2003
cloudy/hazy orange but still a tad see through...froth on top with a solid halo...yeasty and banana aromas..maybe even some coriander and white grape...spritzy mouthfeel with the usual yeasty, spicy, banana flavors...decent.
