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.

Unibroue is far and away my favorite brewery in Canada. Being opened by Sapporo doesnt hurt them in any way. Just awesome in every bottle.

Belle bire ambre, trouble et coiffe dun col mousseux et phmre laissant une lgre dentelle au verre. Des armes de fleurs, de pomme mre et une pointe de vanille. Elle est peu amre, sans sucre rsiduel et lgrement acide. Elle est lisse, de corps moyen/robuste, trs effervescente et se termine sur de beaux armes bien agencs.

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Entirely Belgian in character, but not what I expected. Its a blend of styles. The appearance and ABV suggest that it would be similar to a Dubbel, but the flavor has more dark fruits, raisins, and some vanilla. Almost like a lighter-bodied variation of a Quad. Complex and enjoyable.

shorlin (721) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Chimay glass. Wow, nice aroma. Initital notes are citrus: orange, tangerine and mandarin. Also a good amount of spice. Not too big, but seems like a good amount. Appearance is a good murky burnt orange, with a whitish head that looks like it will last for days. Taste isnt quite as good as the aroma. The spice comes through in the taste and the aftertaste, but no real distinguishing feature otherwise. Its good, but not super impressive. Feel is also good, but not really, really full bodied. Theres a nice tingle all the way through, though.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Belle apparence, mousse tirant vers le crmeux mais qui meurt un jour (ne le faisons nous pas tous?). Arme de levure, de vieilles bananes molles, dalcool bien enrobe, une prsentation riche. Au got, plus mince quimagin, mais dune belle qualit tout de mme. La petite soeur de la Fin Du Monde avec trois fois plus de bananes!

Pours slightly hazy and orange-amber with very frothy white head. Aroma has strong fruity scents - banana, and spice, and a little musty. Taste is medium sweet with a bit of a tangy finish.

czar (8308) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
pours hazy golden orange with a creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. very spicy and yeasty - unibroue-like (duh), caramel and toasted wheat, bit of honey, coconut and vanilla, bitter herbs, bit of phenols and butter - in a butterscotch manner, hint of acidity, candi and candies (!), warming alcohol. lively to average carbonation, light to medium body- oily, grassy-earthy and astringent finish. nice stuff.

Lagerboy (2050) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
750 ml corked & caged bottle. Clear first pour, orange copper, foamy off-white head slowly settles and lasts. Yeasty, spicy fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, some citrus and the usual yeast strain, lightly spiced, clove and coriander, light floral hops and some noticeable caramel malt behind. Lively carbonation and lighter bodied. Second pour is hazy with yeast sediment. Another well made fruity Belgian style ale. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

GothGargoyle (2508) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Cloudy dark orange with a decent yellowy pale head. Aroma is yeast, candied apple, pear, stone fruit. Slight creamy mouthfeel, medium body, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Taste is nectarine, apricot, dried apple, mango. Not bad.
