Pours a pale-straw color with tons of medium sized bubbles that float up to the huge, pure white, frothy head. Appearance is wonderful and does have nice rings of wispy lace and good head retention. Fruity, cider-like aroma with pepper and yeast. Medium bodied and very smooth on the palate. Starts with a sweet maltiness that makes way for clove and peppery flavors. Very complex, finishes slightly dry with some hop flavor. The alcohol is hidden very well, almost too well as after a few bottles of this tasty treat you won't be able to stand.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a thick creamy smooth off white head.
lots of champange like carbonation. Not much lace.

Aroma is fruity, yeasty, bready, orangy.

Flavor is citrusy, spicy,fruity, with a little bit of hops on the end. warming alcohol.

Champange like mouthfeel, bubbly but with a creamy quality to the finish.

A- Pours an orange color with a huge head and some very good retention leaving a nice white skim after about 3 minutes. LIttle to no lacing.

S- Picking up banana, pear, apple, coriander, and perhaps even clove.

T- Lemon, alcohol, apple, clove, yeast, very complex. Spicy! Nice.

M- Definately has some carbonation but nice. The alcohol leaves the throat warm and reminds you that it's 9%.

D - This is how a tripel should be made. I haven't had many but this is by far the best. It is in the top 100 for good reason. The alcohol is a bit high to get this a 5 but I can forgive the high alcohol here because it tastes VERY good!

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.

750ml brown bottle, a best before date on the back label(10-01-11).
2-25-09 update - Had a 12oz and it has a much spicier scent and flavor, clearer golden-yellow, but just as good!

A: Foamy off white head. Cloudy, golden-yellow straw color.

S: Heavy sugar citrus scent. Slight clove and spice scents.

T&M: clove spiciness with some sweetness. Medium-heavy bodied with fruity flavors. Slightly dry finish.

Notes: Definitely my favorite of the "Unibroue" ales.

It's hazy and the colour of sunshine. Golden and brilliant. It has a thick white head that leaves a good cap on the body after fading away a little. Good retention and nice lace. It smells of banana, cidery apple, and peppery spice. There's a boozy solvent character to it, and something vaguely suggestive of plastic, like a vinyl record. It tastes of sweet orchard and tropical fruits with some nice boozy alcohol and mild hop bitterness in the finish. The alcohol lends this beer a spicy character. The carbonation is fairly high and plays nicely with the peppery alcohol. It's so potent, but it just goes down like water - especially when it's just slightly cool. The alcohol doesn't hinder it at all in that respect. This is a 750mL bottle - when you think about it, you're really having a little more than two to begin with, and it's still going down like water towards the end. It has depth, well integrated complexity, and it's easy to drink. What's not to love?
