look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This is getting harder and harder to find, just happened to find it in the first place I ever encountered it many years ago but this is my first taste of it...

A: Light orange brownish color, hazy and translucent, with medium foamy head. Looks good in my new La Fin Du Monde glass (thanks Brian).

S: Fruity, cider-like sweetness with a hint of alcohol

T: Again fruity cider-like sweet to start, then a hint of the
7.7% ABV as a reminder, then a surprisingly smooth mellow finish.

M: Starts off with medium sweetness and lightly smooths out a lot lighter than most triples, complex but not overpowering.

Overall: Great and now rarer beer so I'll have to go buy the rest where I found it...
Buy it if and while you still can, Unibroue should bring it back...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into two big snifters

Pours a nice cloudy yellow (I left a fair amount in the bottom of the bottle to keep it from turning into a muddy yellow). Not a whole lot of head, but a pretty significant quantity of fast, fine carbonation. Smell is sweet, spicy, yeasty funk, bananas, some other kind of fruit. Maybe apricots.

Taste is fruity, lots of banana flavor, maybe a bit more of the apricot. The yeasty funk in the smell is less funky in the flavor.

Mouthfeel is light and lively. Overall, quite a nice beer.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

33cl brown bottle, the fourth beer in my random weird beer tasting evening: best before 31 Mar 2011, drank and reviewed 28 Jan 2011.

Poured slowly into my Westvleteren chalice, tried not to let any sediment out, failed: the beer was a cloudy, murky dull orange colour, old gold I suppose. The head was thin, wispy and off-white, it soon became just a weak collar.

Good aromas of Belgian type yeasts and Continental Biscuits (Dutch Cookies).

Fruity, alcoholic and very drinkable. Raw, sharp and interesting, this beer has a character and a style which appeals to me. Semi-sweet, yet with an undertone of bitterness which never actually reaches the surface until the mouth is really drying out after each sip.

I can't get Unibroue beers very easily in the UK, but I'll certainly buy any I see!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Golden and slightly cloudy in appearance. The head is white and foamy and disappears quickly. Lacing is minimal. Great color.

S - Bananas, candy sugar, bubble gum, peaches. So much going on. Getting some alcohol as well.

T - Semi bitter peach. Alcohol. Sweet pineapple. Delicious.

M - Smooth, creamy, bubbly carbonation.

O - A step above La Fin Du Monde. This beer is excellent.

4.28/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Slightly orange-yellow, crystal clear. Has the signature Unibroue huge frothy white head.

S: Smells of Belgian yeast, malts, and citrus- orange and lemon.

T: Subtle yeast and citrus taste mirroring the smell. Peppery finish that lingers for a while, with a nice malt back bone. Well balanced

M: Medium bodied with a smooth, milky feel. Pretty low carbonation which works well here.

O: A very solid, enjoyable Tripel. It's basically a Pilsner if it was brewed with Belgian yeast; tons of malt flavor but still very complex. It isn't mind blowing, but it's worth the price and I will be picking this up again in the future.
