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

Appearance - Pours a hazy, golden straw with a white, fluffy 2 finger head. Great retention, resulting in a thick, creamy, sticky film on the surface.

Smell - Lots of heavy cream, a touch of coconut; sweet.

Taste - Follows the nose; soft, mellow fruit notes, with a real creamy undertone. Finishes slightly citric and with faint coconut character.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Creamy and silky. wonderfully drinkable.

Overall - As with the last 2 Unibroue brews I've tried (and I'm guessing the 4th too) this beer rides on it's excellent mouthfeel to give it it's distinctive mark in the beer world. Entirely smooth and drinkable; deceptive.

I have had this beer more times than I can count. It was one of the first craft brews I ever enjoyed and it appeases me to finally get to review it!

A - A deep rich yellow which looks as if it were dense straw. The head is large and coated with small bubbles. Ample lacing makes this a beautiful Tripel.

S - An explosion of sweet banana and fruits alongside spices that tickle the nose. Comes together on the rear with some sweet malts.

T - Follows the nose with the addition of big malts, sweet honey and some citrus. This beer is not for every occasion, although if one is looking for a desert beer with big ABV and smooth taste, this is the one.

M - The hops burst and tingle the palette and recede as the carbonation eases off. Big bodied with a light crisp taste. Fantastic.

O - This is one of my favorite beers for a reason: it is unique and absolutely huge given the sweet nature. Truly the pinnacle of what Unibroe has produced and I will be drinking this one until they cease production.

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

A - Pours golden with a high white foam. Plenty of carbonation, and slightly hazy.

S - Scents of ripe fruit and spices. Smells like cloves, ginger root, and nutmeg.

T - Flavors are crisp and refreshing. Sweetness that is similar to a riesling wine, with a tangy feel from the yeast strain. The finish is loaded with a spicy bite.

M - Refreshing, masks its ABV well, and is generally smooth.

O - Glad to get around to reviewing this one. Perhaps Unibroue's best offering. Easily a top shelf tripel.
