look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a pale copper color, with great head, but little lacing. Not much of a scent to speak of, maybe a bit of sweetness, but that's it. Same for the taste, for the most part it's bland. Not bad, but nothing great to speak of. It has a bit too much carbonation/bite for such a strong ale. Not Unibroue's best.

Note: New reviewer here, take this with a grain of salt.
Poured 12 oz bottle into tulip.

A- Hazy copper with quickly diminishing 2 finger head
S- Smells sweet and floral faint syrupy smell.
T- Some caramel, a little overpowered by the carbonation
M- A little heavy on the carbonation, goes down smooth
D- Very drinkable. Despite the carbonation it goes down very smooth.
O- I was excited for this beer, I may have set my hopes too high. The taste didn't really come off as strong as I had hoped. The aroma and pour were going well but the carbonation took over and washed out the flavor.

This beer poured a large white head with small sized bubbles. The body was cloudy and the hue was light brown.I could definitely taste the alcohol with this beer.About all I have to say about this beer is that it was just okay.I was not extremely impressed by the taste.

Best by date 06-01-2012

A: Pours a reddish-brownish-orangish color. I was expecting more of an amber hue, but it had much more brown than I was anticipating.

S: A big wave of alcohol esters, some brown sugar, toffee and Belgian yeast aromatics.

T: Again, a piercing alcohol burn, Belgian spice, dark fruits.

M: Average for a BSDA

D: This is probably the worst offering I have had from Unibroue, a brewery that I usually love. It's not terrible, I just feel like it might not translate well to my palate.

750 ml corked bottle.

Not overly impressed at all. Bier is lacking in carbonation. I had to force a good head by extreme pouring and then it disappeard very quickly.

Likewise, the taste is bland and uninspiring. A little fruit and alcohol. That's it!

Perhaps this bier is too fresh and requires a lenghthy stay in a cellar, and if that is the case, they shouldn't have sold it.

By the way, I purchased two bottles of this recently at different times and both were 'the same'. It is possible that a bad batch has been released. I will take note to give this another shot in a few months as I general enjoy this style very much and other Unibroue products I've had are great.

Pours a medium brown with goldish accents into my tulip; A thick, tan head froths up the way it should and slowly settles down to a thin but complete covering that leaves no lacing.

Lots and lots of alcohol in the nose. Smells acidic and yeasty, but mostly alcoholic - rum, gin, whiskey combined. This makes me a bit leary of my first sip, which I find to be...

Hmm... kind of like apple cider that's taken a turn. The flavor is a bit better than the nose; It has some definite crabapple notes, some spice and caramel, but the alcohol is a big hitter here, too. It's not exactly being disguised.

Mouthfeel is thin despite the head, very little carbonation; There's a quick, tight sensation as you swallow, then almost no aftertaste or lingering sensations except an astringent alcohol burn.

Unfortunately, this beer just didn't do it for me. I found it to be unpleasantly harsh.
