Typical of Unibrou's style, this amber-red ale is great. Champaign bubbles make the beer very bright. The smell is typically bland, not an amazing nose (but not boring either). Must be pored in a proper glass. Trying it in various ways you can note how the flavor changes once its out of the bottle. Also note these beers are bottle refermented, so there is sediment on the bottom.

This is not a typical Red ale, so do not buy it expecting it to be similar to your local brewery's Red.

Unibrou has a unique style and not everyone i have shared this beer with has enjoyed it as much as I. Yet i still recommend this Ale highly.

My first Unbroue product, picked up without knowing its reputation and i picked up a gem i must say.

About two finger thick head off white colored head with just decent standing. Not much lacing. Excellent light brown color with hazy appearance. Some bubbles.

Aroma : This is full of dry nuts, fruity smell with some clove and phenol. Clear Belgian yeast flavor. Sweet malty smell that is enticing.

Taste: Refreshing malt and yeast forward taste. Some dry nits come up along with clove phenolic flavor. Dry finish. Very Low on hops and bitterness.

Mouth feel: Typical Belgian ale mouth feel that is refreshing and fuzzy. Moderate carbonation. No astringency. Medium feel. Dry on palate.

Overall: A good ale that makes you like Belgian styles more. Well hidden alcohol and nicely suppressed malt sweetness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a nice bubbly white head that stays well after the pour. Colour is a hazy dark copper. High carbonation is apparent.

S: Fresh tin smell is upfront, raisins, cloves and Belgian yeast

T: Tin comes threw again but not as much, a bit of toffee, raisins, fresh sweet apples, bread. Finishes with a light brown sugar flavour

M: Great carbonation, crisp and clean on the palate.

O: Good beer. The tin flavour and scent is not something I've picked up before yet it's coming threw a lot in this bottle.
