Gusher. Dark copper pour, lots of yeast floating round. Good head, nice persistence. Would have liked some lacing though.
Aroma is lovely, with the Unibroue yeast, plums, prunes, blackberries, candi sugar, caramel, nougat, red wine and sweet sherry. Very perfumy/rose-like.
Taste shows more of that classic yeast, lots of residual sweetness (candi sugar, I guess). Esters are reminiscent of lighter fruit than the aroma, namely pear and white grapes (more akin to a tripel!). Some alcohol, but reasonably well masked.
Not as full a body as you'd expect, but it works well the the lighter flavours. Not too much carbonation (unlike a lot of the Unibroue beers). Very slight warming on the palate. Quite enjoyable.
This seems to have a less dominant yeast character (than the other Unibroue beers), I'm pretty sure that's why I've rated it so much higher.
