February 1, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO. Characteristic Unibroue aroma and flavour. Biscuits, bit of citrus, touch of caramel. Lovely brown colour with white head that dissipated quickly. Pretty good. Not my favourite from Unibroue.

patricks110 (2495) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
A beautiful hazy orange and golden body with a fizzy off white head. The nose is citrusy and estery with light notes of banana, cloves and apples. Mild toasted malts with a light crisp mouthfeel. The finish is moderate and a bit bland with a tad of Belgian flavour. Overall, a good brew but a bit bland.

really noticed the assorted citrus. Kind of malty during the aftertaste. Better than most from unibroue but not a standout

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a nice hazy orange colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, esters, grain, biscuit, floral hops, spice. The flavour more or less suit, heavy on the bread and grain notes, mixed with some spice, and orange citrus hops. Not bad, but there are better options.

bunget (986) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
341ml bottle. Clear copper-amber body, small white head, average retention. Aroma of spices and Unibroue yeast, caramel, honey, citrus and some booze. Harsh taste: caramel, yeast, spices, herbal hops, booze. Oily. Slightly disappointing.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange with a moderate tan head that remains and laces well. The nose has flowers, spice, caramel, fruit and that typical Unibroue yeast aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet with caramel, fruit and vanilla, along with a moderate amount of Belgian-style spice. Banana comes through. Hops are delicate and unobtrusive but emerge towards the end. The finish is long, malty and spicy with a slight pepperiness. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Belgian-style strong ale with a nice fruity character and a beautiful creamy head. 2013-06-18

DuffMan (10434) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Davey. Hazy light orange-gold with a lively creamy white head. Signature Unibroue yeast in the aroma, which I’ve come to find feels homey after not having had a Unibroue beer for a while. Sweet vanilla biscuits, wheat, honey, light phenolic spiciness. Just what I wanted from this!

guil0000 (433) - New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours a hazy orange golden color with a pretty decent long lasting bubbly white head. Nose of banana, citrus, pears cloves and other spices and the standard yeast smell. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is a bit sweet with a phenol finish. Great as usual for unibroue.

3.7
pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
750ml brown bottle, corked. Honey gold pour, hazy. Keeps a medium sized white cap, a few patches of lace sticking in the glass. Nose has yeast, honey, biscuity malt, grain, orange, caramel. Taste has bread, grain, sweet malt, citrus notes. Yeast with clove notes, caramel and orangey hops at the end. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Overall a nice beer with some interesting spice notes.

4.5

Unibroue is far and away my favorite brewery in Canada. Being opened by Sapporo doesn’t hurt them in any way. Just awesome in every bottle.
