I agree with a previous poster that Unibroue needs some help with their packaging. I've seen these bottles on the rack in Wegman's for a while, but there just wasn't a vibe to pull me in. Then they went on sale. Holy Moly!
First off, the cork blows out of these babes like they were champagne. The pour is exceptional, beautiful foggy gold with a serious, off-white, cratered head (from those big, healthy bubbles) that hangs around quite a while. Thick lacing. As I have noted, childhood allergies completely screwed my sense of smell, but the fruitiness couldn't be missed. Maybe raspberries. I can't really say, but if I can smell it, it's there. The mouth feel is full, plenty of carbonation, though it sure doesn't get in the way. It seems like every taste bud is located and activated, lingering and lingering, kicking up the initial rush. Yeasty, but not in your face; some sweetness, but not at all cloying. It's a little peppery on the tongue, and closes with a nice warmth; pleasant, rather calm for a 9% ABV. Everything fits so nicely in this beer. If it were female, it would be powerful, sultry, and smooth. At the top of the pale ale pile. I'll be drinking this a bunch ...
