Pours a cloudy gold/straw color with a one finger white head. Retention isn't great but that is to be expected with a 9% ABV beer. Smell is bready, and of apples, and cloves. Taste first comes through with soft and sweet wheat, a hint of apple, A touch of alcohol, smooth sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy. This is a fantastic triple, though not my personal favorite.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a frothy white head, good retention and nice lacing.

Smells of sour yeast and banana. A fairly clean nose.

Taste is banana up front with a nice chewy bready malt middle. A very nice sting from the carbonation with some bitter spice notes - clove. An excellent beer, maybe not a lot going on, but the few notes are played excellently and come together in a beautiful harmony of flavor.

Nice cloudy golden hue pour. Fizzy head.

Smells yeasty. Prominent clove, coriander, and pepper.

Flavour pushes through of clove, coriander and pepper in the end. A mild bitterness. Bread and yeast more pronounced as beer comes up to room temperature.

Smooth, dry and crisp-medium carbonation. Flavours last.

Nothing to pick apart here. A really solid beer that can be enjoyed at anytime of year.

Pours a cloudy, straw/gold color. Huge thick white head. Musty and light bubblegum sweetness in the nose. Sharp when cold, but blends well when it warms.

Taste mimics the nose with bubble gum and musty clove phenols first, and a long musty aftertaste. Nice full mouth feel.

Drink this one at room temperature or slightly chilled. Flavors are very sharp and harsh when cold, round out rather nicely as it warms. Score reflects drinking at room temp/chilled.

3.81/5  rDev -11.8%

Bought a 4 pk of bottles from Wegmans Holt Rd on 3/23/13. price $ 10.99.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a St Bernardus chalice, served around 50 f.

appearance: hazy lemon yellow with a 1 finger sugar white head. not much lacing.

aroma: sugar cookies with lemon glaze.

mouthfeel: full, solid but a little lifeless.

taste: crystal malt with lemon zest that provides the flavor and the bitterness.

notes: Mt first Unibroue bottle and I must say I am a little disappointed. Simple taste, not bad but lacking complexity of some Tripels.

Orange-gold, a finger of white frothy head that doesn't totally stay but keeps coming up in the center of the goblet to retain a thin layer. An occasional small pour from the bottle brings it back up nicely.

Smells of orange juice, red apples, sugar cookies, spice, herbs, earth. Appetizing.

Taste matches smell, along with rock sugar, orange peel, sweet white bread. Delicious, and drinkable. Finishes with orangey freshness and alcohol.

Mouthfeel is creamy, with a bit of nice oiliness, but can get too fizzy.

This Quebecoise is fantastique. I wish I had a bowl of poutine to go with it!

12 oz twist off, poured into my La Fin Du Monde stem glass. Best by Sept. 2011.

Pours a nice hazy, honey-orange with a huge white head which dies down to a half finger cap of foam, and then to small lace. I can see the yeast floating around in very fine particles

Smells very fruit-like, and not just fruity. Kind of like a mix between a bitten into apple and pear. There is also a gentle, spicy aroma. This is dominated by yeast fermentation character, with not much malt presence and only a tiny bit of hops in the nose.

Taste is sweet, with a peppery type snap to it. Bitterness is there and its firm, but overpowered by a burnt sugary sweetness. Slight citrus is also there, which really compliments the orange appearance.

On the palate you can definitley feel the fermented sugar character found in Belgian styles. Carbonation was really dancing hard on my palate at first, but the hard pour combined with all the agitation from my swirling really dropped off the carbonation dramatically. Towards the end of the glass, its a bit flat, surprisingly.

I'd imagine this is pretty versatile with food. Plus, if you get the corked and caged bottle...well that has class written all over it. I'll try it sometime.

Another amazing offering from Unibroue.
Beautiful light golden elixir pours with a good dollop of head that camps out for the duration. Nice lacing as well.
Complex aroma of dried fruit, apricots, nectarines. Light floral hoppiness, excellent, the smell has me salivating...time for the taste.
The taste is out of this world, lightly fruity, slight bit of hops, crisp malt is so well balanced.
The mouth is perfect, definitely perfect carbonation which marries so well with the ultra dry finish. Excellent example of a belgian from outside of belgium. Unibroue has yet to disappoint, this is another prime example from them.
