12 oz/355ml bottle, silver foil-wrapped. Part of a mixed 4-pack of Unibroues picked up recently at Trader Joe's (a steal at $7.99). Dated 'Best Before 11-02-13'. Poured to the trusty La Chouffe tulip.

For all the fine beers I've reviewed over the years, hard to believe I haven't written up this one before...

A: Glowingly golden but a little on the hazy side, even a fine dusting of hanging yeast (and that from the top 250ml of the bottle). Plenty of head, a 2-finger bounty of white froth, and cascading carbonation. Only fair head retention, though; a creamy ring and a little swirling after a couple minutes, with broken and non-sticking lace.

S: Vibrant doughy sweetness, lots of spice and sugary pear/apple. Honey and flowers, hardly a whiff of hops.

T: Upfront fruity notes: candied apples, sweet berries and spice... even a not-so-subtle clove/spice-filled 'bubble gum'. Concentrated 'ale on lees' yeast gives a biscuity flavor, honey-sweetened and there's an orange cream/blossom in the finish. It's a roiling cauldron of sugars, starches, and spice - always developing, always interesting.

M: Mouth-filling carbonation, active almost to a fault before gradually mellowing. Still, each sip send sparks flying for a few seconds before a stickier yeast envelopes every orifice of the mouth. Lip-smackingly malty.

O: Really a fine Tripel, among the better ones I've enjoyed... and a shame to have so often neglected this when it's so readily available... and nicely priced! A sipper at 9%. No real flaws, just a solid version of the style, start to finish.

A: Golden in color, and quite hazy, LFDM holds its head well, and displays marvelous lacing.

S: Clove, rose, and banana are well presented.

T: Off-dry, with notes of honey, clove, and golden delicious apple.

M: Light in body and oh-so effervescent.

D: A standby throughout the US for those who love Belgian brews, but hate the import price. Unibroue does an outstanding job of recreating the Belgian style, while keeping things affordable. Definitely worth a shot.
