Malty fruityness with apricot in the aroma. Hazy golden body with creamy white head. Flavor has a sweet maltyness with a spicy touch. Palte is creamy and smooth. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2005
Cloudy blonde colour. Very Belgian in style. Reminded me of those strong Belgian blondes like Duvel.and Piraat. Fruity flavour. The alcohol is noticeable, but nor overpowering. Slips down dangerously easily for a big beer. Definitely the best Canadian beer I’ve had to date. Mind you it only had Sleeman Silver Creek Lager and Quidi Vidi Honey Brown to beat. Bottled at the Green Leafe Cafe Williamsburg.

Bottle: poured an orange/yellow with a fizzy head. Sweet fruity aroma which is like holiday sweetbread and candy. Hops also lay below the sweetness. There is a good deal of carbonation, not overpowering. There is a sweet/sour content followed be a major alcohol warmth. It is surprisingly drinkable with a dry sweet finish.

Solid, above-average pseudo-Belgian. Herbal yeasty aroma; pours golden with strong head. Aftertaste of Hoegaarden florals. Very tasty and economical alternative to Continental brews. I would try this again, for sure. thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2004
Holy cow. If there was ever a beer to drink to get ripped, this is it. COmbines the drinkability of a belgian white with the strength and complexity of an abbey trippel. Hazy yellow-golden colour with a white head. Dryish- orange spicy flavours, an absolute beauty.

Surprised that I hadn’t rated this one yet. Lovely hazy light gold, big head that slowly fades. Aroma of orange, a hint of clove, and other spices, with the traditional Unibroue yeast. Flavor matches, complex yet approachable. This is a very well done example of the style. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2005 This beer is golden on the bottom and white on the top. The yeasts are great to look at. There is a lot of yeast in this beer. Nice carbonation as well. The taste is similar to the Chimay Triple and the Victory Golden Monkey. This has more of a wine like taste then the other two. This was good. Better then I expected.

Palette: Faible acidité sur la langue et le palais. (Rating #42) larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2004
Golden. Yeasty and spicy aroma and flavour from pomerance. JorisPPattyn (10002) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2004
Orange, light-coloured beer, very carbonated to extremely dense, finebubbled white head. Very fruity nose, slightly but obviously spicey, grapes and coriander. Very much coriander in the taste, fruity-flowery character, gradually becoming very dry, high attenuation despite some restsugars. Good balance dry-sweet. Medium bodied. Much more spiced than memory had it; just too spicey for being really good.
