Poured a frothy, three-finger head atop a golden orange, slightly cloudy brew into a tulip. It looked so refreshing. The aroma was spicy, cidery and fruity... the immediate tangible smell was sour green apples. If I took a big enough inhale, I could feel the alcohol in my nose. Tastewise, it was tangy, sweet, and sour, once again with a focus on an apple-like flavor, with a nice warmth from the high ABV. It sometimes reminded me of reisling and/or champagne - maybe a white grape twang in there too. For all the apparent sweet tastes, each taste ended up surprisingly dry. Drinking it reminded me of Duvel sometimes and Orval other times... strange. The mouthfeel of this beer was wonderful - effervescent and smooth. Obvioulsy, like other beers with high ABVs, as it warmed and was consumed, the alcohol became more and more apparent.

I was wondering if I should another review, but what the heck, here I go.

Appearance: Cloudy Yellow, lots of carbonation, Nice thick creamy head

Smell: Yeast, fruit, malt

Taste: Wow! Lots of flavor. Orange, Cherry, yeast, grain, spicy.

Mouthfeel: Nice body. Smooth

Drinkability: Yes, I will get more. Great stuff.

Overall: I was wondering what all the fuss was over Unibroue....now I know!

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a medium glass tulip. Foggy light amber, like a heffe, with full but fast white head. A little lace ringed after each sip, but foam was always fleeting.

Smells just about perfect for the style - lots lf sweetbreads and undeniable belgian esters. Smells of booze even cold, but more like a cordial - not a cheap liquor.

Whiffs right before the sip of tobacco, faintest goat cheese. Middle of the sip is surprisingly tart and dry despite sweet smells. The finale is that malty, sweet belgian candi taste that I still cannot describe better than "frosted flakes".

Feels a hair too sour on the tongue, but only while held there. Carbonation is balanced and the booze is warm, not burning.

Drinks all too well, thanks to each sip being charmed along by that wonderful smell and finish. The actual body of this beer could be better, but the aroma could not.

12oz bottle poured into a La Fin Du Monde tulip. Pours a huge white head that leaves a thick sticky lace on the glass. The color is a pale yellow color with no transparency.

The aroma is filled with a zesty yeast and clove aroma. Their is also a phenolic aroma along with the clove and some light banana aroma.

The taste is wonderful as it starts with a clove spice and alcohol warmth. The malt kicks in with some really nice sweetness and a dryness from the fruit flavour and finishes with the yeast taste.

Their is a nice creamy feel to this beer with a good amount of carbonation. This is a tremendous beer which I could drink all night.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice x2.

A= semi-cloudy golden yellow with a thick rocky white head and minimal lacing. There's a carbonation party goin' on.

S= lemony and spicy (pepper) with a lot of floral character.

T= same as the smell. The aftertase is nicely bitter. There is not an overpowering alchohol taste as I would have expected for 9.0 ABV. But I guess that's not very high anyway.

M= medium-light. As the carbonation dissapated it got a little solventy, but not objectionable.

Overall, pretty straight forward. Not the most complex belgian style I have had but nice and tasty none the less.

This is a beautiful milky orange beer with lots of head initially and lots of carbonation. The taste is very spicy, yeasty, and fruity. No evident hop aroma or taste. It is definitely one to drink slowly due to the carbonation and alcohol content. As the beer warms the flavor slowly changes as some flavors come to the forefront and others fade away. Very enjoyable!

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cider golden with a soda like carbonation, bubbling up is a white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing. Slight chill haze, a lot of active bubbles.

Smell: Big fruity esters, banana, green apple, cloves, also a little floral, also some wheatiness.

Taste: Great citrus sweetness, tart, mango flavors, alcohol warms up the palette and the nose, cloves and spice and dry finish with a grapefruit rind finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth rolling carbonation, beer coats the mouth, finishes semi dry.

Drinkability: Tasty Belgian ale, very drinkable, a lot of fruity flavor packed into this one.
