I've had this beer so many times but never reviewed it. This time I had it at a annual party at Capital City Club Atlanta, GA.
From bottle into Flute glass (its apparently all they had)

Appearance: Pours lightly hazy, pale orange body with a 1 inch white head.

Smell: Strong malt smell with fruit tone, plum, pear, raisins, a dark Belgian typical.

Taste: Sweet hit with a blend of the fruit smells in the taste. A counterbalance of spices, bitterish orange peel, and hops against the sweetness of the fruit and malt. Very crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. With medium carbonation.

Drinkability: Always a winner, great Belgian tripel from Canada.

A - Pours a cloudy golden yellow, with coarse three finger head and moderate lacing

S - typical Belgian style funky aroma with notes of grass

T - wheat crackers, apple, black pepper, aged cheese, yeasty funk.

M - Medium body, smooth, carbonation is spot on

O - This is the best non-Belgian Belgian-style ale that I've had. Perfect example of a tripel and rivals the Trappist breweries.

Wow - what a good beer! Nice pour with good head, hazy in glass. Great aroma and great taste - impressed by how bold and complex both smell and taste were, but also extremely well balanced between all the fruity, spicy, malt, yeast elements. Only a hint of alcholol in the finish, but not a negative. Not heavy at all.

Overall, seems to me this was a "power beer" that one would enjoy sip by sip, but then, feel like drinking one or two more because it tasted so good and was not overtly strong or cloying (but, even one at 9% demands respect)

Now on my favorites list and will certainly buy again.

This is a truly exceptional Belgian Pale Ale. Just a shade less good than the vanguard of its class, Duvel. Pours a nice fizzy head with very tight carbonation. Taste is of all the good things you'd expect from the triple-fermentation process: currants, cinnamon, pepper, coriander. A bit heavy on the carbonation to score higher in mouthfeel, and its high ABV takes away from its drinkability. But there are few better "sippers" in the world...

Bottle Pours a golden orange with a fluffy white head which leaves a good lacing. Aroma is spicy yeast and fruits. Has a good mouthfeel and good carbination. Has a smooth taste well blended and not strong. A decent aftertaste. Overall a very good beer

12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass...
Pours out a cloudy orange-yellow with a nice fluffy head that's fairly well retained. Smell is malty and sweet with some spice and banana. Taste is exquisite, with peach overtones at first going into malt and clove-like spiciness with some banana essence amidst that lovely alcohol backbone. Another absolute winner from Unibroue. Vive la Quebec!!
