VertBaconStrips (2391) - Blerkablerka, - FEB 14, 2013
Minus the gueuze selection i think this is the last beer i can review - thanks for the pity bottle, B. Light yellowy lightly orange cloudy stuff with a huge fluffed out blanket of bubbles. Lightly funky, lightly. word of the review lightly is. Perfumy pepper, dry wheat, smells white, not sure about the weak banana - if it is there or not, lightly spoiling pineapple juice, even fresher when its sat for a long time. The taste is similar with a very appealing dry tangy citrus impression, no pineapple at all. Highly drinkable like the rest.

From old tasting notes. Hazy yellow gold color.mRocky white head. Yeasty sour malt nose. Tart lemony malt flavor with a spicy hop finish. Very wheat like. Decent flavor and mildly refreshing.

Un peu mince pour une Unibroue, elle se boit tout de même bien. Elle est assez sucrée, mais sans exagération. Pas la meilleure Unibroue disponible...

"Has a yellowish honey colour, nice foamy head, citrus taste, a bit of spices come through, and a little tingly aftertaste. Pretty good Unibroue limited release. Came in a mixer 12 pack, only 3 bottles.

gramity (1675) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
An unclear orange beer with a small head. The aroma is yeasty with notes of coriander. The flavor is also yeasty, but with notes of oranges while the body is thin. Not bad, just boring.

Elle est blonde et voilée alors que flotte une mousse dans les règles de l’art au-dessus du liquide. Des odeurs herbacées, florales et épicées au travers la levure du brasseur. Elle goûte sensiblement ce qu’elle sent, accompagnée d’une touche d’agrume. Sans être exceptionnelle, elle est plutôt agréable à boire. (606-230313)

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale blond with a decent head. Aroma is cereal upfront, light citrus and spices with Unibroue’s signature yeast. Taste is refreshingly tart with a light cereal and malts sweetness and some spices. A well crafted hybrid between a witbeer and a blond ale. Simple and refreshing.

pours cloudy yellow-orange-amber, with a massive creamy head, good retention, some lacing, very active streams. Big citrus aromas up front with a slight sourness and mild barnyard. Attack: tingly lemon citrus, 2/10-sweetness (dry), creamy mouthfeel Mid-palate: coriander, lemon, orange, wheat/yeasty, light wheat malt Finish: cuts dry, tangy, mild burpy, light malty non-bitter finish Generally refreshing and a decent session/meal beer.

RD400F (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
34cl bottle to Unibroue tulip.

Aroma: Zesty citrus fruits, Unibroue yeast, a bit of sour funk, some caramel, light biscuit, vanilla. Quite complex for the ABV.

Appearance: Hazy pale gold color with a fine white head.

Taste: Very fruity and there is some sourness as well to contrast. Light bitterness to finish it off.

Palate: Mouthfeel is light and spritzy, somewhat like a lambic but not as thin. Carbonation is great, balance is good too. Starts sweet then leaning toward sour and finishing slightly dry and bitter. Quite clean.

Overall: Interesting beer, seems to be a cross between an ale and lambic. Pretty neat, why did they discontinue this?
