4.38/5 rDev +4%
this is the best beer ive had in awhile. and at roughly 8 bucks for a 750ml, its amazing. pours a dense looking dark dark amber color, semitranparent and autumnal looking with a tall off white head with excellent retention. smell is belgian yeast, amber malts, and balanced hops. flavor is great, yestt forward but perfectly balanced. interesting malts, not sweet, not dry, but red. feel is sensational, radiant carbonation and a heavier than medium body. i cant get enough of this one. overall an exquisite beer. i really have come to love unibroue, very authentic well made ales, and this might be their best

Plummy body with a light brown hue. Slight overpour. Off-white crest became a thin disc. 3.5
Malty fruit punch nose, mild booziness, plum, nectarine, some Belgian chocolate, and honey. Not too shabby. 4.5
Very cherry and plum. A very fruity BSDA. Grape notes that are red and plump. A little watery in the finish with some clove-like spice. Some toffee and dried fruit. Very low bitterness. 4.0
Thin body for the style. Drinks too easily. Undercarbonated. 3.0
Exceeded my expectations. With Unibroue, I was anticipating a pompous yeast presence, but this was a well-balanced brew. 4.0

Pours a rusty red, with deep copper tones. A bubbly head that dissipates very quickly.
Smells slightly musty, wild yeast, brown bread, with some dank hops as well.
Rich dark fruits, spice notes like green peppercorn, maraschino cherry, faint vanilla, maybe some hints of ginger, mild bitterness in the middle through the finish.
Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bodied.
Not a bad example of a strong red ale. Nothing outstanding IMO, but definitely enjoyable and worth a try. Even better in a four pack taster box set with three other Unibroue brews.

12 oz bottle into a tulip.
a - pours a murky, chestnut color and gave me a finger thick, dense, tan head. after calming i get a thin cap that lasts for the remainder and leaves thin legs of lacing in the glass.
s - carmel, cinnamon, faint dark fruits, faint dough.
t - bready and spicy. notes of brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, and grape. faint alcohol taste with a bittersweet finish. a fairly complex flavor profile, but doesn't blend together too well imo.
m - lighter side of medium with plenty of carbonation. coarse co2 profile adds to the spiciness found in the taste.
o - fits the style well but this one's not really doing it for me. i can think of a few other examples of the style i would choose over this.

750ml C&C bottle served in an oversized wineglass.
pours an opaque mahogany tone with a creamy finger of a beige/off-white head; very solid retention and nice walls of lacing.
nose is a little more subdued than i tend to look for in my BSDAs, with muted notes of sweet malts, belgian yeasts, dark fruits, and some light spices... decent if a bit underwhelming. flavor follows and well exceeds the aroma. apple, spices, belgian yeast, and some caramel malts all in there, very well balanced and very tasty. a bit of a dry finish with a slight touch of booze. pretty phenomenal beer.
mouthfeel is smooth and creamy; medium-bodied with appropriate carbonation... not a lot of hype trails this one what with it being so widely available but it's a truly great brew. definitely recommended.

12oz bottle into a cervoise. The brew pours a hazed burnt copper with some coloration more towards orange/yellow around the edges. The cap appears 2 fingers strong with a yellowish tan coloration that holds quite well for an 8% brew. As the cap slowly fades, it leaves some small fingers of lacing effect on the glass. A swirl revives a finger and streaming carbonation maintains the cap.
The aroma has suggestions of fruited quality like orange zest/pulp, lemon, apple and pear. A yeasty quality comes out giving a hint of clove-like spiciness with a faint mineral inclusion. Overall, a familiar yet enjoyable smelling brew.
The taste has a bit of peppery spice that blends into yeasty flavors of clove and mild banana/bubblegum. The aftertaste has some fruited quality like melons.. something along the lines of cantaloupe, pear and apple. The alcohol is felt with a mild accenting fruited flavor that draws in quite a bit of warmth for the 8% indicated inclusion. The aftertaste has a bit of toasty caramel grain which is refreshing and enjoyable.
This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. For 8% it is well integrated and only starts to get warming towards the 2nd half of the glass. My favorite take on the style? No probably not but if you havent had it, you need to give it a try. It has a lot going on in it and is something I would most certainly revisit again to pair with food.
