New Jersey

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.

Cost: $5.99

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!

Slightly Sour.
Lemony.
Just a touch of bitterness to it.
Not too hoppy.

Is a higher ABV beer, but doesn't taste boozy. It is a lot mellower than you would expect it to be.

It is nice and clear, has a slight head to it. Nice color, bright.

Bottle and label are attractive.
