4.45/5 rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Package: 750ml corked bottle, labeled 9% ABV, Best Before 09-12-04.
Presentation: tulip glass at 50º
Appearance: Rich yellow color, a shade darker than Duvel. Scads of fine bubbles streaming through a cloudy body. Head is monumental! Super-fine bubbles that are so dense, the head resembles a meringue, where the egg-whites have been beaten to a fare-the-well.
Smell: Citrus, apple, pear, and hops. Doesn’t quite have the Belgian mustiness that Duvel exudes, but still an impressive nose.
Taste: Yeast and hops meld well with a malt fullness. Did not fill out quite as much as I expected as the beer warmed, although spice notes became more apparent. Alcohol was well-integrated but notable. Finish wasn’t quite as substantial as I had hoped, considering the initial complexity of the flavors.
Mouthfeel: Warm. Creamy carbonation fills the mouth. Carbonation seemed more aggressive than I remembered and a touch coarser than suggested by the head and tiny bead.
Drinkability: A very drinkable beer that should be kept on hand for regular sampling.
It amazes me how well Unibroue has seemingly effortlessly mastered the process of brewing such good, Belgian-style beers. Although I feel that they may have too many variations without too much difference, no one can fault the products. They are subtle, flavorful, well-crafted brews that continue to impress.
Backwash: This is a great beer, although I believe that it should probably sell for a bit less, considering the C$; and I think that Duvel (typically $6.99) is a better beer and costs more to ship. If this were priced like Ommegang (as it originally was), I would buy it by the case. Other than the limited Unibroue 10, this is probably my favorite Unibroue product so far (until I get my hands on the 11 and the La Terrible). Well worth the purchase. Thank you Canada!

One of my absolute favorite beers ! Refreshing with little citric or hoppy feel or taste. Pairs well with most foods, especially spicy dishes. We may have to keep Bieber following the 2014 Olympics, but I'll take that deal any day as long as we get to keep this great beer at our doorstep!
