UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Un arome pic invitent, une saveur rchaufante dpice, de coriande et de malte roti. Ce nest pas la fin du monde quand la bouteille est vide!.

OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JAN 14, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Really hazy piss yellow. This is pretty nasty swill. A large white head. It smells sour and tastes sour. When I bought this beer I was excited but now I feel really let down by this mediocre brew.

Pours a hazy orange-gold with a thin but ample head. Some lacing. Big malty flavor followed by a bit of unique tangyness. Just a hint of citrus and spice. Moderately dry and quite refreshing. Good stuff!

Better consumed early me thinks. Ive had this drop a few times within 12 months of bottling and it is clear this a very smart beer. However, medium term cellaring hasnt really helped here. The sweet chunky malts and yeasty character has largely disappeared in the mouth although still shows in the aromas (albeit in a modest way). Still too much fizz here and I dont think this helps the flavour. Structure is fine but the flavours aint.

Vintage: 2005
Consumed: Jan 2006

Vibrant orange with an attractive haze with a thin fizzy head settling after 5 minutes. Big nose of spice and malt sweetness. Powerful palate, more heavy malts but loses some of the spice evident on the bouquet. Some alcohol heat apparent but within the styles context. Good structure and excellent mouthfeel in the back palate with broad spices and cinnamon. Finishes with a surprising degree of elegance given the powerful character evident early.

The aroma is pretty yeasty and alcoholy. I think the head looks great. The taste is about average.

unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2006
(33 cl. bottle) Yeast, spices and "earthiness" in aroma. Head is big but uneven and not long lasting. Colour is golden - bordering on hazy. Malty, spicy taste with quite a bit of hop bitterness - and maybe a little citrus. A very good beer - recomended-

Light, clear amber with a big white head. Aroma of grass, yeast, honey. Classic tripel aroma. Flavor of honey, grass, yeast. More malty character than the Don De Dieu that I just had.

its got a kick like a mule! a silent mule. 5 of these on new years and I was gone... but not until midway through the 5th. luckily I had one left over and can comment on it now. definitely a citrus beer with a slight tartness. highly recommended.

when choosing a non-belgian tripel, this and the alllagash triple are always my two finalists. sometimes i just have to get both! goes down very easily, be careful, if you drink a 4 pack youre zonkers! a very tasty lead up to said zonkers.

Bottle. New years champagne substitute. Much better than champagne! Golden orange with some fizzy bubbles. Tastes like a dozen fruits, pears peaches and more, slightly sweet and fizzy, goes down easy, just the way I like it. Unibroue rules.
