COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Joshs translation of the French description: La Fringante is a deluxe, triple-fermented beer born of a unique strain of yeast which gives it an unexpected finesse. A champagne-like effervescence, its vigourous presence in the mouth underlines its markedly strong personality of balanced flavours of spices, malt and hops.

sudomorph (1143) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a translucent golden colour with a half finger, bubbly head that fades to nearly nothing very quickly. Smells of yeast, spices. Hints of vanilla, citrus, and ripe fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of spice, yeast, and alcohol. Medium carbonation. Medium body. Very good triple. Exactly what I would expect! Well worth a try!

Lovely beer! Pours light brown/orange with no head or lacing. Nose is dough with a lot of spice. Aromas are plums, maybe a hint of clementine, some dough, with a tiny spice finish. Tastes are light sweet with a bit of pepper and maybe a hint of bitterness in the middle. Body is light with lively carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2016 Bire jaune orange, bien embrouille, trs effervescente, et surmonte dun col beige moyennement dense qui se rduit assez rapidement avant de se stabiliser et de rsister moins dun centimtre du liquide. Armes de pain frais et ptisserie, abondant fruits du verger (abricot, pche, poire, pomme), avec certains effluves plus sucrs (sucre dorge et miel). On peroit galement au nez la prsence de cette levure typiquement Unibroue, mais cest dfinitivement moins dominant que dans bien dautres de leurs bires, ainsi quune pointe dalcool et de gnreuses pices (gingembre, clou de girofle, poivre). Nez agrable et intressant, bien complexe et bien intense. En bouche, ptillement lev sur la langue, onctuosit moyenne au palais, belle rondeur, corps soyeux et thylique. Au got, le malt fruit (abricot, pche, poire, pomme) nous envahit en entre de bouche, avec ses notes galement de pain frais, sucre dorge et miel avant de cder graduellement la place un houblon surtout floral, mais galement fruit (notes dagrumes et de fruits tropicaux) et pic (poivre!) en route vers une finale sche et moyennement amre. Les chaudes pices et le chaleureux alcool nous accompagne galement tout au long de la dgustation, le tout tant intgr la perfection. Excellente bire, excellent quilibre des saveurs, trs goteuse et intense en bouche, belle complexit. /// Janvier 2016 (dernire distribution de cette bire lhiver 2013), il me reste encore quelques bouteilles, les bires de Unibroue vieillissent tellement bien! Explosion de malt fruit (fruits du verger), malt mielleux, un peu de sucre dorge, chaleureux alcool, chaudes pices, esters fruits (banane, mangue, poire), toujours excellente Une vritable gterie pour moi ce soir!

Trs bon. Robe jaune, odeur un peu mielleuse et pic, got tout en douceur et en chaleur balanc par un peu damertume assez discrte.

maley1 (1233) - Calgary, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Hazy amber orange pour with large off white head. Aroma of the signature unibroue yeast, spices, caramel, malts and cinnamon. Taste of yeast, malts, caramel, pepper, slightly fruity. Very similar to la fin du monde except slightly sweeter and a peppery dry finish and fruitier in the middle. Excellent beer!

WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 29, 2013
Hazy light golden, big head. Nose is that Unibroue yeast, spicy and quite sweet, Taste is pepper spice, malt sweetness, lots of esters. Sharper than FdM, and largely the same but its heaviness weighs it down comparatively, not as much orange. Still though its a rocking tripel.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
Excellent Tripel. This beer is very close to La Fin du Monde in every way, except La Fringante pushes all the boundaries in terms of flavour, aroma and mouthfeel. This beer is a little more alcoholic, has more body, more sweetness, more flavours and stronger aroma than La Fin du Monde. Love it.

Bouteille 341 ml. Achete chez Peluso (Montral). Servie dans un verre tulipe. Robe dore, surmonte dun pais col blanc. Arme: bananes, pelure dorange, malt, levures belges (typique dUnibroue - on les sent de plus en plus mesure que la bire se rchauffe). En bouche,malt, alcool, sucre candi, levures et pices. On distingue aisment la signature Unibroue, quoiquavec une complxit plus grande qui est bienvenue par ailleurs. Bonne effervescence en bouche. Un peu trop lourde, mme pour une trippel. En plein sur le style.

Why do I not ALWAYS stock Unibroue beer? I love this stuff dammit. Cloudy apricot stuff with the typical huge ass bright white noggin. Ha! This shit is 10%! Score! Dry, light pepper, lemon, yeasty goodness, almost Brett feel on the nose as it warms, fresh dough. I think the lemon is gone and replaced by these things on deep, confined snorts: ginger, herbal, banana (very faint). This has incredible depth in aroma. Great flavour and lots of it. Typical year bite, dryness and light pepper, twigs, ginger or cinnamon - either way that side of it has a killer bite. Stiff citrus acidy thing, peachy lemon, some herb, the Brett is back, drank it way to fucking fast and now things are twisting counter clockwise. Feels as it should. Excellent beer. Last beer out of the "I am broke forever Pity Pack" from Brad. Thanks shitdick.
