Brownish straw color with a voluminous white head.
Bitey aroma of clove, yeast, alcohol, and banana.

Taste is crisp and bitey. Lots of spice in the tart flavor. Clove and alcohol have a strong presence. The beer doesn't support this high of an ABV IMHO. Malt and hops take a backseat to everything else going on in this beer.

Lots of carbonation in the mouthfeel.
Drinkability is good despite the high ABV.

Overall, a good beer, but definitely not my favorite Unibroue.

I've had some less than stellar experiences from unibroue, though through no fault of the brewery (I failed to check the dates on a sampler pack I had bought) and so, even after checking to make sure this one wasn't expired; I purchased the bottle with a bit of subconcious aprehension.

I'm glad I did.

Poured a cloudy orange amber color with a nice cap of white head.

The smell is orange citrus, bread, and spice. The taste is sweet, everything in the nose is in the mouth except for the boogers; add a bit of clove to the taste as well. The 9% alcohol is masked well; this is probably easier to drink than it should be.

Such a smooth beer, glad to have tried it; will definately try again.

The beer pours an ugly piss yellow with hints of orange and with a very soapy head on it that fizzles away slowly, and sits over the beer as the color of soap bubbles. The beer’s body is cloudy like piss, but allows a fair amount of light through. On the nose, this beer smells of soy sauce and banana phenol notes with some very slight bubblegum hints. Fruity soy sauce is really what comes to mind when you smell it, though not in an entirely bad way. On the tongue, the beer tastes of creamy banana, soy, and some nice clove-like spice. The beer really begins with light soy notes that grow in fruitiness until they hit banana flavors, and all the while the spicy clove also builds on the sides of the flavor, and leaves the aftertaste to ring lightly of spice and slight banana. The middle of the taste is really where this beer shines, with big spicy cream banana notes that are quite pleasant on the taste buds. On the mouth, this beer feels quite fierce with carbonation, though the beer below it sits with a nice medium body that sticks to the tongue, and leaves the mouth clean, but with sticky saliva along the sides of the mouth. Overall, this is a nice tripel-style ale with some great phenolic notes, and some nice spicy complexity. A fitting beer to end the world with, I suppose, though it isn’t my favorite in the style. Still, this beer is worthy of a try.

Bottle@home - 2006 vintage

A: Hazy golden orange with a ok sized head. Very nice lacing!

S: Tropcial fruits, Yeast, Cloves, Citric notes. Wonderful!

T: Honey, Fruit (Apple, Pears, Bananas), Spices (Pepper!), Yeast.

M: Carbonation is at a medium level. Very nice balance and absolutely no trace of alcohol. Very impressive!

This is a favourite that i keep on coming back to again and again. Insanely drinkable for a 9% brew. Has the typical Unibroue yeast-character but if you can't get past that, you're missing out! Recommended++!

Had this many times - just getting around to rating here...
Pours hazy golden color. A rather large fluffy head that leaves behind some large bubbles.

What a nose - complex - corriander, apples, lemongrass, and yeast.

Enters very soft, like a belgian white. The alcohol fire presents, but not overly. Champaign charachter. FIlls out nicely.

The flavors mirror the nose. Some rock-candy sugar flavor thrown in for good measure. A little sour apple too.

A fine interpretation of the style. Very quaffable, but really sneeks up on you. Hard to believe it is 9%.
