What a fine beer. It is really a very strong wit. While lacking the subtlety of some of its style due to its triple fermentaion and the high abv, its flavor is great. It hits you in the face with taste but hey thats what makes it so memorable. It comes in a large bottle with a cork. A good thing as if you drink it by yourself a half a bottle will start a pleasent buzz. I bet a full bottle would get you sloshed. As most beer drinkers who would buy this drink for taste, the cork should be welcomed as it lets you enjoy it over a few days. great stuff! honebone (1) - - MAY 18, 2012 does not count
It could have just been a bad day, but this is the BEST beer I’ve ever had. BeerMaster (6) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2005 does not count
Bottled. Deep and rich golden colour. This unfiltered beer brings notes of high quality spices (probably the same used in La Fringante & La Fin du Monde). Its high alcohol due to triple fermentation (9% north american edition, 8.6% European edition) is outstandingly well hidden. It really is God’s gift. snownirvana (70) - - APR 5, 2012
Tulip snifter from bottle. A: very floral, some citrus , some wheat. App: very cloudy, golden hue, frothy, white, 2 finger head. T: some citrus, coriander, floral essence. very lengthy aftertaste of violets and citrus. You don?t taste the alcohol at all. P: super bubbly, extraordinarily smooth! One of the best beers out there! leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Wonderful wheat taste. Coriander and similar spices. An amped-up Belgian style wheat.

Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy light orange, with a medium fluffy white head that fades quickly, leaving good lacing. Nose is fruit, cloves, bananas. Taste is typical Belgian-fruit, malt, and that peppery Unibroue finish. Delicious. Pumpkin87 (248) - - MAY 16, 2015
Pours hazy amber gold with medium bone white head that reduces quickly but retains throughout as attractive, cappuccino-esque skim.
Nose is pears, cloves, apricots, bread, white pepper, honey, yeast. There’s all that and more on the palate, with the banana and coriander notes of a classic Belgian wheat stepping forward, but accompanied by pineapple and green apple. Peppery yeasts and spicy hops add zest while doughy malt provides a gentle base.
The creamy texture and sparkling, medium body are satisfying without being too filling, but have the downside of masking the 9 percent ABV. You will want a session, but take care when you stand up.
This is a very refined Belgian-style wheat ale, the equal of anything to be found in Belgium. I think of it as a micron below La Fin du Monde and Rochefort 10, but really, I can’t point to a flaw. One of the world’s great beers.

One of the best beers out there. Sparkling golden colour with very resistant white lacy head. Rich malty aroma with a hint of spice. Flavour is complex and the beer is super smooth for the complexity. Trig (4) - Howell, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2003 does not count
second best only to the anniversary beer by unibroue. Not too sweet and not bitter. Enough alcohol to sneak up on you if you don't pay attention to the alcohol percentage. punkeedo (499) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - AUG 17, 2005
This is an amazing beer. Very sweet, with fruity notes and some spicy undertones. Very little head and a dark gold color. Very pretty, but lacking head pretty much altogether. Try this wonderful beer. It’s worth every penny.
