Poured into a tall wine glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy caramel brown with a two finger high manilla head. The head dissipates, so enjoy it while it's there. The beverage leaves light traces of lacing the edges of the glass. When held up to the light, it retains its haziness. I can see some carbonation bubbles in there. Overall, it's an intriguing beer to look at.
Smell: Fruit smell is the first thing that comes to mind when I smell this. I can detect apple mainly. There is also a floral characteristic that is quite pleasant. It reminds me a bit of potpourri. This is a quite a nice smelling beer, and it falls well within the Belgian style of beer.
Taste: Wow, there is a lot going on here. I am first greeted with an almost caramel malty sweetness, which gives way to a little bit of bitterness. This is followed up by a fruity, floral character, which is quite a transformation from the initial taste. The finish is strong, and leaves an aftertaste that only barely hits at the intense experience that this brew provides. A wonderful taste.
Mouthfeel: This is a little heavier than a typical Belgian, and less carbonated than some other varieties. Actually, this is probably the most balanced mouthfeel I have ever come across. Truly a joy to experience.
Drinkability: Man, it's hard to believe this is 8%. I could drink this all night while watching my favorite shows or listening to some great music. Each sip invites another one. I simply can't get enough.
Unibroue does it again! This is highly recommended, and I am having a hard time telling whether I like this or La Fin Du Monde better. This is darker and sweeter, while La Fin is crisper. I guess it depends on your mood. If you ever get the chance to try either, you absolutely must!
