ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a mildly hazy golden-orange color. The head is a foamy four-finger white shade. It has an amazingly fluffy texture, but very little lacing. S: There are a lot of typical notes I expect of a good BSPA (such as apple, pear, and candied sugar.) But I love how the wheat gives it an unbelievable smoothness to it. Grassy and funky qualities helps provide some rock-solid depth to it. T: The first thing I note is Unibroue’s typical yeast profile - which I can never fully discern on the tongue, however I can note that it provides a grassy, sweet, yet vaguely salty opening. The faint candied sweetness bleeds into the midtaste, before a finish of wheat and even some mild hops envelop the tongue. It’s deep ’enough’ to be interesting, yet simple enough to go down easily. After all, isn’t that what you want from a tripel/BSPA? M: The lush, creamy softness at first sip turns into a vaguely dry astringency on the back end, but ultimately it’s fairly sweet and syrupy - this quality also seems to conceal the carbonation slightly. There isn’t any trace of alcoholic qualities on the feel or flavor; you could even say it drinks like it’s 6%. O: It’s a bit like La Fin Du Monde, but with wheat. Enough said, really.

From bottle. Hazy dark gold with an impressive frothy white head, good lacing. Once that settles down pleasant aromas of bread, fruit, spice, funky Belgian yeast start to emerge. Bright fuzzy fresh mouth feel, lemon, wheat, grain. Medium finish sh, very enjoyable.

5/30/17 (Chicago). 12 oz pour into flute glass. Hazy, cloudy blond pour, solid white frothy head, significant lacing. Wheat predominate aroma, lemon, citrus and apple aroma. Taste matched aroma, somewhat bitter. Pepper and banana noted as well, good mixture and balance of sweet and spice. Mild carbonation, heavy mouth presence. Overall very good offering by one of my favorite brewers. Thank you brother for the six variety pack!

From Saveur-Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x04-05. Full of apple notes and some white grapes. Strong yet pleasant carbonated feeling with zesty spices that invites to short, very enjoyable sips

This is the last of the commonly available unibroue’s and it isn’t their best, but it is still pretty great by any other standard. It has a lovely fruity aroma with a strong apple overtone. It pours a classic golden belgiany color. It tastes strong of apples again with a sweet belgo yeast kick in there, too. It bears it’s wheaty origins in its bubbleyum heffe flavor combo. It goes down smooth like a collabo tween Santana and Robbie Toms. Loving these abbreeves today!

Pas de doute, l’esprit belge est bel et bien respecté. Très belle réalisation, et les 9% sont relativement discrets

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Grain and bread malts, wheat, light esters, some yeast, sweet, zesty citrus fruits. Hazy, pale gold, massive, frothy, white head. Medium sweet. More sweet grain malts, sweet citrus fruits, lemon, caramel, soft carbonation, full bodied, some alcohol and more sweet citrus in the finish. Very nice Wheat Ale / Weizenbock, nice touch with the citrus fruits. Bottle from z’Bierhuus, Thun

Ronritter (650) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Loved this beer was a bit sweet with slightly spice finish poured from 12oz bottle with moderate head and small amount of lacing thought they hid the alcohol very nicely.

3.1
BillWyce (1074) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Pours hazy straw color with a 1-finger white head that was gone fairly quickly. Mild aromas of banana and lemon, maybe a note of black pepper too. Medium body, lightly oily. Mild astringent heat to the finish. Lemon flavor with a mild spice note.
