A- thin head, more of a film actually..., cloudy due to the bottle fermentation and looks like a glass of strong tea no lacing or residue left on the glass.

S-smells of citrus from the yeast. Also a bit spicy smell in the nose.

T- there are two dominant flavors, a sweetness and a spicyness. The sweetness hits first, spicy through the middle and finishes with a malty/bready taste accompanied by a metallic twang. Aftertaste is of dried fruits.

M- D- feels light on the tongue, as you swallow it has a crispness to it and the aftertaste is long and of dried fruit, however an alcoholic heat also accompanies it.

Overall the beer impresses in all categories but looks. Book-cover-etc...

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Best by 09-23-12 listed on the bottle.

A: Pours a beautiful golden brown color with a thick, bubbly, off-white head. There is a slight haze from the yeast, medium carbonation, and almost no lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Lots of bread and yeast. A bit of sour apple or other fruit aromas. Some nice spiciness - cinnamon and cloves.

T: This beer really excels here; lots of complexity. It starts off very malty - sweet and bready. There are hints of raisin, and the beer finishes with a nice spiciness of cinnamon and more clove. There is a bit of floral hoppiness which balances the flavor nicely.

M: Very crisp with a medium body.

D: This beer sits kind of heavy, although the alcohol is only slightly noticeable going down. The great taste and lighter body makes it pretty drinkable still.

A: Pours a hazy burnt orange color with two inches of off-white head. The head sticks around in an ever-present cap, though leaves surprisingly little lacing.

S: Some spices on the nose followed by a strong aroma of surprisingly light fruits such as pears and bananas. There are some bubblegum aromas in there as well with a touch of mint. Underneath it all is a bready Belgian yeast aroma.

T: There are some light spice flavors at first proceeded by candy sugar, a touch of bubble gum, and sweet pear-like fruits. The Belgian yeast kicks in towards the end, providing a hearty, lightly spiced bready flavor with a touch of bitterness. The finish is clean and crisp.

M: Medium-light body with a good amount of carbonation, this beer is nicely attenuated, adding a crispness to it that belies its flavors and gravity.

O: An excellent beer. An interesting and very nice aroma with a solid flavor profile to back it up. Like all Unibroue beers, they also do a very good job with the attenuation, keeping them from being overly sweet and syrupy.

12oz bottle into brandy snifter.

Cloudy reddish amber hue with a light tan fizzy head that lasts for a decent amount of time. Settles a thin cap with pockets of high fizz. After a while you can swirl the glass and it creates a slight swirl in the cap. Stringy lacing along the glass.

Grapefruit and plum strike the nose with the slightest hint of phenols. In the background are hints of alcohol.

Strong fruit presence among a highly carbonated medium-body that lends a crisp bite with each sip. An acidic mouthfeel in the beginning. A slightly sweet malty base that finish with a dry alcoholic taste along with a tiny touch of hops and bits of phenolic flavors.

Once again a good beer by the Unibroue company. A good example of the style. As you get closer to the bottom of the bottle the phenolic quailities become more noticeable. So if you don't like the phenols, leave the last half inch of beer in the glass to prevent the sediment from getting in the rest of the beer.
