750ml bottle poured into a pair of large snifters

Pours cloudy straw yellow with a big fluffy pale head that fades to about a quarter inch dense layer. Smell is yeasty, bananas, funk, cloves, sweetness.

Taste is crisp but sweet with nice yeasty flavors and more clove and bananas. Slight tartness to accentuate the sweetness nicely. Tartness probably helps out with the impression of crispness.

Mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Overall, this is very good. A beer that I go back to time and again. I'm very surprised I've never reviewed it.

Love this beer! Finally reviewing it. Pours a very murky golden straw color with a big white head that slowly diminishes. Scent is nice and SPICY! Tons of spices and a good amount of pepper with some yeasty notes. I also pick up some hoppiness and white grapes. Taste is OUTSTANDING, as usual. This beer is so complex and full of flavor, it's ridiculous. I get delicious yeast flavors with some fresh bread. Tons of fruit: apples, bananas, white grapes, melon, and a hint of orange. There are some tasty peppery spices along with clove and some bitter hops. Mouthfeel is very crisp and dry. Very complex and full-bodied. Drinkability is very high considering ABV is well hidden. One of the best tripels there are!

Easily the most luscious and inviting head I've had the pleasure of seeing. It reminds me of the frothy top of a handmade milkshake; imparting the impression that it was homemade with lots of love. Body is straw colored gold with light carbonation. I would call the nose lemony, but with the disclaimer that it is in no way sour. Also along for the aroma ride is a smell I can only call pleasantly milky and a hefty amount of spice. Taste is at once full of mildly sweet lemon, spice, a dash of sweet milk, and smatter of bitterness. Says I to the mouthfeel, "a winner is you" as it is big and full. The light carbonation enhances its creaminess. The lacing looks like a work of art, or more aptly, something drawn from a nitro tap. Yet another head turning Unibroue beer. Thank you Beer Advocate, for had I not become a member, I would not know the pleasure of this fine brewery.

I'm sampling from a 12oz bottle of Fin Du Monde with a best before date of 09/01/08. Poured into a Maudite glass, it raises a huge fluffy white head with some staying power on top of a cloudy light golden ale. Fine bubbles continue to rise throughout the beer to the end of the glass. Smell is a mixture of hops and spice (predominantly coriander to my nose) with some strong orange peel/citrus flavors as well. Taste is malty, with some lemon zest and coriander and a dry and bitter finish and a slightly sweet aftertaste. Full bodied, but high carbonation lifts it off the tongue and leaves me wanting more.

This is an excellent beer, and one that I sometimes overlook. I really shouldn't. A year or more in the cellar will probably make this beer that much more extraordinary, and I have a couple down there waiting to find out.

A: Golden and cloudy opaque with yeast floating around. Fluffy white head with good retention.

S: Smells a little like citrus, some sour yeast, and flowery I think.

T: Taste the smells up front, very complex, slight bitterness. Quick alcohol spike, erased by yeast flavors. A dry finish.

M: Strong carbonation; full and smooth.

D: The alcohol is hidden well. Smooth and tasty.

This is a beer I am going to have to revisit, as I don't have the pallete to pick out all the flavors. Very enjoyable but dangerous, especially because the drinkability is so high.

Wonderful stuff. Pours the beautiful hazy yellow with a sweet almost banana aroma. Pils malts and saaz hops marry with a fruity flavor. The alcohol is well hidden and you could get yourself in seroiously trouble with the drinkability of this. A classic in the making.
