On opening a big sweet candy nose hits you before the pour.
Lots of bubbles,highly carbonated,big 2inch off white head.cloudy amber/yellow/orange colour,with a yeasty nose on the pour.
Nice bite to start with on the taste.Great blend of flavors,the most noticeable being citrus.,followed by cooking sugar and yeast(spice,mainly pepper),leaves a warming trail down the throat and in the stomach.
This beer has balls to spare....a good one.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Hazy bright yellow pour, forming a thick creamy head. Yeasty and spicy with a full body and complex yet delicate flavor. Lots of kick well hidden but noticeable with 9% alcohol. An excellent and memorable beer. Definite buy again. ... 12/23/2004....Rerate. Well I have certainly bought more of these since my original rating. They just seem to get better and better. An excellent triple which I am quite fond of. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival.
Hazy golden. Starts off weakly but slowly it explodes into an orgie of sweet oranges. Rich malty. Lingering finish. NosirIwont (2573) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2004
Bottle. Hazy pale orange colour. Thick white head, which disappears quickly. Acidic aroma. Yeast. Alcohol. The flavour is very acidic (citrus) in the beginning and ends in a nice bitterness in the aftertaste. In between there is alcohol, coriander and ’gajoler’ (a Danish licorice for sore throats). Like a high alcohol wheat beer. Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.

lots of champange like carbonation.
Not much lace.
Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy.
Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.
Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.
Brilliant. Nice head and sud residue on glass. Honeyed taste and texture. Bubbles without being carbonated-harsh. Wheaty tasting (and looking almost like a Hefeweissen) without being thick. Tasty. Nothing to complain about here, move along folks, move along.... dwyerpg (6368) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Just like all the unibroue beers, it has a sparkly texture, and is good from start to finish. Different from some of the others, though, is that this gives a kick at the end, in which you can definitely the 9%. Good stuff. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2005 Pours beautifully. The color is an enchanting rustic yellow with a fair amount of sediment drenching the bottom and clinging to the sides of the glass. Frothy and dense head (It took turns) that laced better than well.
Spicy clove like aroma with some banana, yeast, nectarines and alcohol. Quite the odd combination.
Tastes good. Champagne like body. Peppery clove, spices and green melon. Very smooth and it represents itself very well in the mouth. Delicate throughout. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Hazy golden. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit. Fruity sourish flavor with hops. Quite bitter finish. freekyp (2387) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: APR 19, 2009 Cloudy maize with a towering rocky off white head, this beers has a very fruity nose with tons of citrus. Yeasty throughout with a fruity sweet middle and spicy lingering finish. Peach notes play a moderate role.
