Hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma and flavor were sad...slightly hoppy, slightly malty, slightly smoky, with a generous vommit tone. The feel was rather soft. My least favorite from this brewery. BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2003
Cloudy amber-orange colour with almost no head. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Taste of malt, honey and spices. Smoke in the finish. Warming and enjoyable. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2003
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange color with a relatively small head. A nice light flavor with a complex spice that will excite your tongue. skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2003
sweet, fruity (oranges and banana), yeasty and malty smell. Cloudy, orange coloured with a short white head. Spicy, sweet taste with bananas and a bit sour. Smooth taste and palate. Typical weizenbier. jerohen (2296) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2003
Cloudy orange coloured, small head. Aroma of a belgian tripel, fruity and a bit spicy. Soft malty flavour, rather sweet with a weizen-like mouthfeel and flavour. No smoke-flavour detected! Weizen-style imho.

Cloudy orange color, short white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, spicy and fruity, banana. Soft sweet malty taste, spicy sparkling on the tongue. More like a hefeweizen, but more dry palate instead of refreshing. Quite heavy on the stomach. tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2003
Yeasty, fruit (apricot) aroma. Initially large head that fully diminishes surprisingly quickly for a Unibroue beer. Opaque cloudy orange colour. Mildly (peat?) smoked flavour over a slightly estery mild malt beer. Some tartness in the finish and a healthy dose of yeast flavour. Body is light and bubbly. Everything about this beer is so polite, oddly so considering it's a tribute to the hard working, hard drinking rivermen... Still it is a good beer. Wish it were all punched up a few notches. Bottle. ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Easy to drink beer with a very nice color. Light smokey flavor. Quite enjoyable. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2003
I've got to say that I'm unimpressed with this offering from a brewery that I generally like quite a bit. Nice color, but a quickly fading head start off the brew. Aroma is nice...light and sweet, but needs to be fuller. Flavor just seems to lack any real emphasis, but it certainly isn't offensive. Overall, just average for Unibroue. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 23, 2003
Cloudy peach topped by big off-white head. Aroma is sweet, peach, light smoke. Taste is mild, medium sweet, finishing lightly smoke. Watery light-medium body.
