An excellent interpretation of the Tripel style IMO.

Pours nicely, needn't be too vigorous to get a proper head. Said head is snuffable and quaffable, and it's worth doing both.

A: rather light, slight opacity, which raised my expectations. Good carbonation.

S: frankly this is my favorite aspect of LFdM: unusual (for our geography) notes of grass, hay, and other yeasty metabolites that coalesce to make it... oh, forget it - on to taste.

T: good but doesn't quite match olfactory. If anything perhaps too sweet; not sugary but cloying over time.

M: very smooth. Exceptionally drinkable. Good viscosity.

O: this has cracked my regular rotation of tripels (LFdM, Gulden Draak and Rochefort 8 (which I group with Tripels)).

Also worth noting, cost effective: $7.99 for 650mL. Plus you get to have the asthetic experience of uncorking a bier.

And then clarifying to any neophytes, "No, it's not champagne."

Prost, salud, cheers - MCC

Poured from a bomber to a Tulip

A- hazy straw, 1 1/2" bubbly white head

S- citrus, spicy apple cider, banana, peach, pear, metal

T- banana, white wine, apple cider, citrus, grapes, pear, spices

M- medium body, crisp carbonation, alcohol warmth

O-this is my 3rd Unibroue, all 3the are my favorite belgian style beers. This one is a liquid fruit cocktail. So many different fruits attack the senses that i'm sure i missed some in my review. For a 9% abv brew the alcohol is extremely tame, enhancing the flavor and leaving a somewhat white wine like flavor. Spices and sparkling apple cider round out this amazing brew.

On tap at kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Huge white, fluffy head, high retention, soapy,sticky lacing. Aroma includes lemon peel, banana, clove, nice white pepper spiciness. Taste includes all of the same, also some candi sugar. Deliciously "wispy" and certainly deserving of all of its accolades.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass

A. It pours a beautiful dark yellow with a thick white head which last for awhile, no lacing.

S. I smell belgian yeast followed by some sweet light fruit. As the beer warmed a little I began to detect some spice(clove) at the end.

T. It tastes like very sweet malt and has some sweet fruit in the back ground. It tastes more like a Belgian strong ale to me as i am not getting the complex flavors i expected.

M. Its pretty thin with some carbonation that fades quickly

O. I really enjoyed this beer but expected more complexity in the flavor. I would not hesitate to get another bottle as it is delicious.
