3.33/5 rDev -20.9%
A-An odd color of burnt orange brown. A finger of white head quickly breaks down into a film. Lots of lively bubbles.
S-Appealing, fruity-prune, raisins, molasses.
T-Lots of yeast and fruity esters, not a ton else going on.
M-Lots of tingly carbonation, some alcohol noticed. Thin bodied a bit of bitter lingering finish.
O-Missing some malt backbone to carry the strong yeasty flavor and the carbonation zing is a bit high for my taste.

3.35/5 rDev -20.4%
Appearance: Dark amber with a lot of orange - hazy, with a creamy off-white head - retains a nice-looking cap, leaves some streaks of lacing
Smell: Unibroue yeast everywhere - ripe bananas, old bubblegum, and a blast of clove - very spicy, tons of esters - pears and apples - a bit too much- some pale malts, and some white bread, or maybe sweet pound cake
Taste: Like a fruity bread - bananas, pears, tart apples, and some other light fruits - esters everywhere, in excess - lots of clove, spicy, slightly tart - light bread, on the sweet side - very mildly bitter - and, of course, the Unibroue yeast
Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth
Overall: Good for what it is, but too fruity
This is the third time I've had this beer, and I remain underwhelmed. It's good, but it's too fruity, too yeasty. I can see why people like this, but I'm not a huge fan.

Thanks to angrybabboon for sharing the bottle.
Appearance: Hazy, dark orange with some copper leanings. Head is fluffy with tight carbonation and dirty-white. Drops to a thin collar in short order.
Smell: Oh Unibroue yeast. You are ridiculous. Loaded with clove pineapple candy and banana extract. Some ripe fruitiness with a grainier fruit undertone. Something like pear or even apricot. Dusting of citrus. Cornbread with a touch of caramel malts. Lightly bready.
Taste: More of the yeast that's on the nose. So much clove and banana candy. Faint citrus hop note. Malts are bready and mildly sweet. Again, I'm reminded of cornbread, if you soaked it in a weird almost Belgian yeast strain. So much clove and weird banana candy. Flavor shows up and disappears in short order. Almost no aftertaste. Some minor clove.
Mouthfeel: Not thin, but not much better Heavy water. Carbonation is on the high side and spreads the flavor around quickly. Clean.
Overall: This was one of the first beers I had after turning 21. Even then it was more surprising than it was delicious. This makes it memorable, but not because I want to drink it again.
