I would place this somewhere between a tripel and an abbey strong: plenty of orange coriander, but also a wee bit of raisins and caramel. Comparable to Victory V12. A nice beer, but a horribly tacky label. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Cloudy orangish color.Sweet aroma with a hint of spice. Flavor is a spicy malty pepper taste.Alcohol makes it's way in at the end on the finish. A good beer by Unibroue. MOboy (510) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Orangey colour with a strong, lasting head. Alcohol is hidden quite well in this one. Excellent belgian ale from an excellent brewery. frylock (1144) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Hazy orage apperance. Sweet, buttery, slightly alcoholic aroma. Pretty much all of the characteristics that came through in the aroma also came through in taste. TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Good belgian. Pours with a large, frothy egg white head, which fairly quickly completely dissipates. There is no lacing. Color is reddish golden. Flavor is spicy, yeasty. An excellent example of the sytle.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 Spicy scent, slight cider smell - crisp apples. Colour is dirty reddish-brown. Earthy. Small head, slightly cloudy. Taste has spice to it, slightly bitter but with a fine malty finish. Nice. My first Belgium-style strong ale and I like it very much. My second Unibroue (next to Blanche de Chambly) and I think it is excellent. OKBeer (1175) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2003
Deep brown/red colour with a mostly lasting off-white head, leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is raisin, plum, alcohol, pepper, and yeast. Flavours of raisin and gingerbread, with the alcohol coming through in the finish. Medium bodied, maybe a bit thinner than I expected, finishing with a nice bite.
