This one pours from caged and corked 750ml bottle a clear light gold with almost no head of foam.

The smell has some sweet malt, lots of spices, some fruitiness, some yeast and a nose of alcohol.

The taste is of yeast, dark fruit, spice(coriander), apricot, and some citrus. I'm drinking this at room temp so I'm getting a real blast of flavours and I have to say, it's a bit overwhelming.

After a few more sips and after my palate gets more used to what it is experiencing, I'm beginning to really enjoy what is going on here.I'm finding it to be a smooth sipper; it has a medium mouthfeel to it and the carbo is also medium and it finishes on the vinuous side. Very tasty and the 9%abv adds a nice bit of warming after the swallow. I'd buy this one again.

Pours a translucent golden honey color with a healthy cap of luxurious white foam. The aroma is light and fruity, smelling of clove, bubblegum, and Belgian yeast. Strands of lacing adorn the glass like streams of garland.

On the flavor front, the malt character is crackery with a touch of honeyed sweetness. This is offset by spices, featuring clove, and the ample zest of the yeast. The bubblegum alluded to by the nose also manifests in the taste, while a kiss of alcoholic warmth emerges in the finish. The mouthfeel is absolutely sublime; rich, velvety, and smooth, it affords the perfect complement to the flavor profile.

I tried this years ago and, for whatever reason, I found it to be the least impressive of the Unibroue brews. Upon revisiting, I have to say, this is damn good. Not groundbreaking in any sense, but just a really good all-around golden ale with great balance and a luxurious mouthfeel. It's crisp enough to be refreshing in the summertime, but it also has enough warmth to be appropriate in colder months as well. Another winning effort from the Unibroue crew.

Whole bottle to glass stein.

A - Goldish. With a nice one finger head. Little or no lacing. Carbonation present.

S - Sweet and spicy.

T - About like the smell. Spicy and complex. Couldnt pull singular things out of it. I tasted alcohol in the aftertaste. Then again, Im not familiar with rating and reviewing much in this category. But the alcohol was a nice warming sensation. If I can explain it that way. Although not overbearing. Present though.

M - Perfect carbonation. Not too much or too little. Slippery with an alcohol tinge at the rear.

D - Fairly high.

I drank all three from this company recently and chose to review this one. I liked all of them so far. This one was the one I happened to have when my opera browser was open. Some have said that the alcohol isnt noticeable, but after reviewing I understand why. The alcohol kick is only at the beginning and slowly as it warms up and you warm up to it, its very easy to drink. This one is worth the money I would say.

$5.50 at Shop and Save.
