It comes with little stubby bottle. Very unusual aroma for english pale. Banana, wheat, grape and pumpkin. Interesting and pleasant. Clear, transparent. Pumpkin flavour in dominant, second is wheat. Very unusual. Not sure if that is what they wanted to archive but I like it. Thanks Doug!

Pretty sweet. It tastes like they brewed it with champagne yeasts. Extremely bubbly, and Im sure it ruined some of the flavor. Besides that, it seemed decidedly belgian in feel. Maybe its just me, but this was a reach to be an english pale ale. Lose the carbonation, it almost tasted artificial.

Definitely a session beer. I was beginning to despair that Unibroue would have a proletarian beer suitable for prolonged and frequent drinking, but this subtly flavourful, lager-bodied beer with a nice malt twinge in the aftertaste fits the bill perfectly.

Beautiful simple ale by unibroue standards. Still has unibroues signature yeast contributed flavor. Good session ale.

Good taste, cool bottle, nice copper color. Decent head. Not the best Unibroue has to offer at all, but highly drinkable.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2002
An unusual one for Unibroue, to be sure. Very clear golden, which I did not expect. Bright white head like a wheat, which I did not expect. Then, a sort-of-sweet, slightly hoppy/bitter English Pale built upon a more Belgian yeast strain. Goes down very well. Not a world-beater by any stretch, but a session ale. The sum is more than the parts in this one.

I was really excited about trying this one, and I saved it to be my last of my Unibroues to try from my trip to Quebec. Although as I poured this one I was surprised to find a pilsner appearance being that I was expecting something darker and more complex. Slight hops in aroma, malt in the palate, and there is a thin middle. A strange brew, for a beer with noticable hops, the malt is almost overpowering. Eh!?
