This brew pours a pale golden color with a smaller head than I would expect from the style considering the vigerous pour. The smell is largely of cloves and spice with some yeasty tones as well. The clove is defintely the first flavor the hit the palate and slowly melds into yeasty fruit. A pleasant brew to drink overall, but a bit one-dimentional for the style. I expected a bit more from this brew. It was very easy to tell that this one comes from Unibroue in terms of it’s flavor profile. That being said, I have had better from this brewery but this one is definitely woth a shot.

This beer smells godlike. Apple, white wine smell with a hint of fruits. The taste is pure and fresh. Notes of herbs with a dry finish of Lee. Cheers and enjoy!

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a hazy dark toned straw topped a vivid fizzy white head showing minimal retention, low lacing capacities and lively carbonation. The nose is yeasty and fruity, apricot perhaps or muskmelon, and some weak grassy hops on the back. Pretty fluid mouthfeel, one of the rare light body brews from Unibroue, it comes through mostly fruity with some bready malts and faint grassy notes from the hops. Good but not great. Cheers!

hotstuff (5113) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 7-26-2009 (Corked & caged bottle) This beer pours a large frothy, very very fizzy white head which mostly diminishes, hazy body, very little lacing, fizzy, and fast rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, wheat, yeast, sweet, fruity, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, fruity, coriander, malty, wheat, yeasty, and spicy. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer hits the spot so to say, somewhat of a thirst quencher and a beer I would consider drinking again.

Bottle from App Vintner - while it’s big and very oaky, it’s a bit boring. Meh?

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Not bad, but nothing special. Unibroue can do better. Sweet and bready, moderately yeasty.

aumax1 (303) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
750ml bière avec goût fruité, mais pas trop persistant ni trop agressant. Mousse bien généreuse. Peu d’arrière goût et d’amertume, à réessayer

rejtable (2563) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Nice enough but a bit unremarkable for me. Pours slightly cloudy dark straw with no head or lacing. Nose is fruity, maybe apricot with a hint of dough. Notes of apricot, some cereal some light grassy hops. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Lightish body with lively carbonation. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.

At first pour it reminded me of drinking a wet spiral notebook. Notes of metal spiral with wet cardboard. As it opened up it had a nice crisp hoppyness left with some great yeast character. good beer.
