I believe what I may have here is a bad bottle. The cork popped with a barely audible thud, and carbonation is grim. Since this seems to be a brewers fault, I'll review this one. Quality control should come into play in overall score. I have not even tried this yet - it just "sounded" bad.
Pours cloudy brown, with very little carbonation. There is a slight lace around the edge of my glass. Aroma is quite fruity, with some apples, plums, and grapes showing up. Some maltiness lingers in the background. Taste starts off with a bready maltiness. Then a good kick of fruit & alcohol comes through. The mouthfeel is full of tiny bubble carbonation, again I think this is due to a bad bottle. This is fizzy like soda pop, not what I expected from Uniboue. The mouthfeel if full and slightly sticky overall decent. Drinkability is great on this one, bad bottle or no. Pretty good for a 'bad' bottle. I think this may have been a bit premature.
Note - This is my third bad bottle from Uniboue (2 maudites)
