Twelve ounce brown twist cap bottle, with best by date clearly marked on back.

Bright blazing gold, with a blossoming, tight white head. When the yeast is added it goes cloudy, & bright yellow, almost like a wit. The head takes on a much creameir look after the yeast pour.

Bright punchy aroma, sweet & inviting. Its not as punchy after the yeast pour, but an earthy quality is added to the nose.

A rather clean tasting ale. Straight forward malt sweetness, a touch of tart apple like flavours, & some pepper. A dry finish with a subtle but effective hop character. Some solvent flavour lingers. Some earthy / herbal flower qualities are added with the yeast. It also becomes more peppery.

Medium bodied while still being somewhat soft, with pinpoint carbonation.

Quite a nice Belgian strong pale ale. It features a refined sophitication that I enjoyed.

This beer is a Tripel Belgian styled-ale. It has a nice orange and spicy aroma. The flavors are pretty complex and mostly great. To start, you get nothing except for a blast of carbonation that lasts at least a second. But finally that evolves on your palate. First tastes are of orange and other citrus along with spices, noticeably cloves and cinnamon. Lots of yeasty and doughy flavors as well. A nice finish and aftertaste too. The 9% alcohol warms you up but in a good way and is not annoying at all.

This was the first micro brew I ever tried. It was at a coffee house in Orlando. This beer single handedly got me into the love of fine beers. Thank you Unibrau! Poured a cloudy goldish color with a nice head. Smelled heavenly with a mixture of raisons, candied fruit, apples, and dried apricots. Taste was spectacular with upfront fruit and spice and mild floral hop undertones. I just sipped away at this beer and listened to some great rifs on my friend's acoustic guitar.

A: A lightly hazy goldenrod with a rocky, creamy, thick white head that settles slowly to a nice covering and leaves some faint lace patterns on the glass.

S: Oranges, pears, green apples, cloves, light pepper spice from the alcohol. Bold, complex, and wonderful.

T&M: Peppery alcohol, some light fruits (pear and apple from the nose), phenolic and medicinal flavors, clove. Flavor could be a bit stronger, but that's only a minor complaint. Lighter body with a brisk, bubbly carbonation that creates a nice effect, though I would appreciate a bit more creaminess.

D: 9% hurts a bit, but it's still flavorful, crisp, and refreshing. Really a wonderful spring or summertime beer.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle. Corked and all. Classy but not a brew for monday night football. I can appreciate this sort of thing but this one just didn't do a whole lot for me.

Pours a nice crisp yellow with a yeasty aroma. Great mouthfeel, but the flavour was a not doing much for the o'l taste buds. I must be fair in that this was the only sample I've had and I did not take note of the "best by" date. I should try it again because it really did sound like something that would be right up my alley.

I hope it was just a bad sample, but if not, it really did taste like the End of the World.
