pours very pale gold, with a haze, and a nice, dense white head that lingers to the end. Aroma is all fruit, with very faint hints of white pepper. Big time tutty-fruity bubble gum! Flavor is very sweet. Sweeter than the last time I had it. I find it is missing some of the dryness and white pepper notes I enjoy in this style, and think I used to enjoy in this brand. The finish is a little cloying, and the body is a little to full for a tripel. A Belgian brewer will say it is to filling, and I would agree. Not sure why the change, this has been a great beer, and it still is good, just not as good as before.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: poured semi-opaque golden color from a bottle into a La Fin Du Monde Tulip. Nice 2 finger head with decent retention, which left some mild lacing down the glass.

Smell: yeasty, sweet, clove no real detectable alcohol almost don't beleive this is 9% abv.

Taste: Very smooth with very little detectable hops, slightly sweet, cloves, mildly fruity. Very little detectable alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, clean and refreshing, this is the way a belgium pale should feel.

Drinkability: One of the more drinkable Belgiums I have had despite the formidable ABV.

Great BSPA - one of the best non-Belgian BSPA I have had and better than some imported from Belgium. Another winner from Unibroue.

The cream of the crop of the unibroue beers in my opinion. 9% beast that drinks like a session beer. Wonderful white foam that pours out of the bottle and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. The smell is what gets me everytime, it just smells fresh and wonderful and begs you to drink it. Still in my top 10 of all time beers, would really like to go to the brewery one day!

Poured the 12oz bottle into a Chalice glass. Nice artwork on the label and nice cap as well.

A: nice orange/amber color, completely opaque. One finger head that disappointingly dissipated into absolutely nothing. No lacing present at all.

S: a phenomenal explosion of well-balanced aromas are present in this beer. Some of the predominant characteristics on the nose are wheat, citric fruits, but also at the same time very sweet scents. Some spices and slight cinnamon present as well creating a complex yet amazing aroma. It almost makes you regret drinking the beer when it smells this good.

T: tastes very much like a heavy wheat and malty beer. Some sweet estery tones are present at the beginning followed by citrus tones and pepper. Alcohol is present in the taste as well which I expected considering the relative high ABV.

M: medium to heavy body, very high carbonation and dry finish. Alcohol is felt thoroughly.

O: what can I say, this is an excellent beer that is best enjoyed by drinking very slowly as it is on the strong side (sipping beer I guess). It's definitely a quality product that shines in its complex aroma and taste. A must try for all the beer lovers out there.

Very good carbonation that settles a bit yet maintains itself. The smell is incredible...medicinally alcoholic but appealing. And the apearance is a dark golden yeasty appearance, similar to Schneider Weisse.

Yet again I find myself in love with a non USA Pale Ale. (American Pale Ale's are just too damn hoppy for me.) This is smooth and delicious and get's the job done. Don't get me wrong here, the smell is quite hoppy but the taste has been subdued nicely. Very Good.

Surprisingly, I taste a bit of malt here. And not just 'a little' but a good deal. Quite a complex palate.

A great North American brew.

Drink!

From a 750ml cage-and-cork bottle, pale yellow-orange in color, hazy, with a fine creamy white head. Beautiful. Smells of grain, yeast, lemon and orange zest. Lightly spicy (coriander?). On the palate there is an alcoholic warming sensation. Sweet malt and grain, spicy again. Smooth and yet spritzy in the mouth, full-bodied, and oh so drinkable, with a dry finish. Appetizing.
