25.4floz (750ml) bottle (BBD: 12.09.2017) that I bought for the discounted price of $3. Poured into a large snifter glass. It appears medium-yellow in color, and has a thin, retentive off-white head. Aroma is a great combination of straw from the wheat, and apple from the added fruit. It has been a long time since I’ve had this beer, and it has held up well from what I thought of it then. Lightish in body, low bitterness, fair carbonation, and finishes dry on the palate. Mostly grainy in flavor with gentle overlay of apple make for a good occasional beer. Yet, due to everyday tastes, limited store availability, and cost for what it is relegates this beer to having once a decade or so.

ILduce (278) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 LCBO bottle: slightly hazy orange and gold beer with a white head that disappears along with its lace. Lively carbonation. Aromas of grain, citrus, apple and hops. Taste is delightful as far as fruit beer goes. Bright flavours of sour apple, wheat and funk. Light and crisp finish. Delicious.

SG111 (1684) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottled. Best by 07/28/17. Pours clear honey color, white head. Aroma is lots of apple, sweet granny smith apples, mild Belgian undertones. Flavor is wheat, clove, plenty of apple, light Belgian spices and esters. It’s fine. Very carbonated. Too much.

Unibroue disappoints rarely. This one is just a notch below the others. Poured into a chalice glass. It is a hazy yellow with a persistent finely-bubbled white top. It smells floral and fruity. The taste is mild, apples and peaches with a nice sweetness. An easy drink. I like more challenge in a brew.

Pours an amber from a bottle. Nice apple aroma follows through in the flavor along with some nice yeast and barnyard notes. Good beer.

BB backlog, This used to be one of our go to Belgian beers back in the day. Bottles and drafts, this was on tap at PJ’s Pour House with John and Mike. Pours hazy yellow golden with a large head. Crisp carbonation. Smell and taste are granny smith apples, candy, light malt, and other sour fruit skins. Medium bodied. Really enjoyable fruit beer from Unibroue
