Marked "Best before 10-11-14" on the bottle.
This was a difficult beer to review. I had this several times long before I got into beer and have not had it in several years.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip- pours a yellow golden color with a three finger head, which quickly dissipated, and left almost no lacing.

Smell's very sweet. I smell some banana, a little bit of yeast, and a little bit of booze (very subtle).

Taste is also very sweet- not like the tripels that I know and love (Delirium Tremens, St. Bernardus, De Dolle Dulle Teve). Definitely sweet malts and a little alcohol coming through along with a bit of yeast. There's an additional characteristic to the sweetness that is hard to describe- for me though it's too sweet without enough Belgian yeast backing.

Mouthfeel is excellent- medium light body with excellent carbonation. This doesn't taste like a tripel to me- all of Unibroue's beers have a unique characteristic. I wish I knew the ingredients and the process.

A: Cloudy, pale golden color. Head was 2 fingers of frothy off-white, with decent lingering and nice lacing.

S: Sourdough bread. Also some floral and spicy pepper notes. Almost a cross between a Lambic and a Belgian Witbier.

T: A little sweet when it first touches the tongue, but the sour notes quickly dominate. The grains don't really come through at all. The finish was a little dry, with late and lingering bitterness.

M: Very crisp and heavily carbonated. The alcohol burn was present, but very mild despite the 9% ABV.

O: A solid contender in its class. I'd have another, but I wouldn't spend a lot of money to get one.
