Cloudy yellow in appearance. Yeasty, quite citrusy taste. Rather sweet overall. Alcohol well hidden.

Initially pours a clear, golden with a creamy, moderatley diminishing, sticky white head and lace. Nose of apple, pear, yeasty mustiness, floral elements, spicy banana and others. Almost medium bodied, smooth, slightly creamy,rich body that holds flavors very well. Lots of softness considering the carbonation is rather active, floral yeast character is dominate, slight spices, apple, subtle fruit flavors that waver in and out that are hard to discern. Finished up with a slight alcohol burn but a burn that adds character and cuts the yeast a bit. Bit of peppery spicyness as well. This has many elements to it. Reminds me of a tripple/weizebock/biere de garde all in one. Really good and well made.

Cloudy, honey golden color. Yeasty, fruity aroma, maybe strawberries. Yeasty flavor. Sweet and tastey as belgian ales go. Some citrus flavors, as well. I have yet to be let down by Unibroue.

aracauna (3707) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Medium gold body with slightly fizzy white head. Despite excessive carbonation, head stays relatively small (for style). The aroma is pleasantly yeasty and the flavor is nicely fruity with bananas and pears. Could use a little less carbonation however. For the lightness of the beer, it covers the 9% extremely well, although I did pick up a hint of alcohol (and an unfortunately medicinal quality) as the beer warmed in the finish.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Yellowish orange in color with a small fizzy head. Alcohol and fruity aroma, perhaps peaches. Malty flavor, mouthfeel is similar to champagne. Pleasant alcohol and spice finish.

3.8
ConiseurofBeer (242) - Downingtown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Malt flavors and nice fruity texture. Another winner from Unibroue.........

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2003
Unfortunately this brew is far too yeasty. Notes of citrus and wheat as well.

3.5
redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2003
Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, bubblegum, and maybe banana. Taste is sweet with some spices. Effervescent. Alcohol is well hidden.

3.5
Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 27, 2003
The strong alcohol content is extremely well hidden. It was totally unexpected that this beer had 9 % ABV. A bit yeast and wheat in the palate. A little fruity and acidic. Valid head.

3.6
Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2003
I may have been to harsh in my Unibroue 10 rating but nothing besides the Trois (a top 5 beer for me) has blown me away by this brewery. Dont get me wrong I've liked everything I've tried but outside of Trois nothing seems that great. Aroma is faint. Appearance is golden with the usual large foamy head typical of Unibroue beer. Smooth taste with a hint of oranges and peaches. Quite spicy and citrusy. Good easy drinking beer but not quite running with the big dogs of the Belgian Strong Ale class. I'll say its good but not great. Big plus - it hides the alcohol well.
