jonas (7471) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2003
Spice, fruit and yeast aroma. Orange cloud low head. Fruity flavors (peaches and oranges) dominate and a little bit alcohol. Medium to light body. Strangly refreshing.

Hazy golden body with a thin white head. No lacing.
Wheat, yeast and alcohol in the aroma.

Full-bodied. Smooth and rich on the tongue.

bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2004 cloudy, medium yellow; very nice aroma - flowers and lemon; medium texture with a lot of carbonation; nice fresh, citrus taste; probably in or near my top 10 so far (rerated 2/29/2004 - clearly the best of the Unibroues I've tried so far - also the best of the Belgian strong ales I've tried; complex taste with the alcohol well hidden)

Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough, cobwebs), with notes of pear syrup, apple butter, candy sugar, alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Kinda weird apple butter odor is off-putting (and has always been a feature of this beer) but otherwise its a decent enough Belgian-ish brew.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2003
Golden orange brew with a nice head that did not dissapate too quickly. Taste is very refreshing but too sweet for my own liking. The alcohol level is not detectable which is a good thing. This is not the best strong belgian ale from Unibroue. The sweetness is too present. Nice try anyway...

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
This beer is very good. It pours with a nice white head that fades quickly. The body is a nice hazy yellow. The aroma is complex and difficult to describe, as is the spicy flavor. Fruity sweetness is balanced by a nice malt flavor. The alcohol is detectable, but the beer still remains remarkably drinkable.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
I wasnt as fond of this one as i was the other 3. Too strong of a spice flavor for me...it just didnt go well with the style.Dont get me wrong it is still an excellent beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2003
A very nice selection, that pours like you expect a belgian white to in the appearance. Nice foamy creamy head, that lasts and lasts. A very zesty spicy bite on the first taste, that mellows into a very frugal floral fruity taste. Extremely spicy and complex, a very thin mouthfeel is the only disappointment in this one.

ClarkVV (6542) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 2003 Bottle (750mL). Pours a rich burnt yellow/gold. Has a sweet and alcoholic aroma of fermented peach with maybe even a touch of scotch? interesting. Mountains of head. Fairly cloudy. Opens up harsh! Very rough texture backed up by way too much alcohol appearance. One of the meatiest drinks Ive had. Lots of spice, coriander, hell there could be alot of it in there. Complex but too agressive. Firey medium body. Gets a bit too thin though as it finishes, and has a somewhat astringent herbal flavor towards the end. Not my bag, baby. Had this in the middle of a hot summer night. Will definitely give it another chance.
