A- Hazy copper color. Half-finger of head that quickly fades. Little to no lacing. Lots of carbonation bubble dancing around.

S- Wonderful. Floral, citrus(especially orange), spice.

T & M- Orange citrus, light yet creamy, wonderful finish.

D- Dangerously drinkable, I could make this a session beer it goes down so easy.

I think this is a great beer all-around. If you see it, try it.

Pour is golden with a white, formidable head. Smell is of spice and a crisp brew. Taste is crisp, finishes clean, and resounds of malt and spice. Mouthfeel is slightly overly carbonated for my taste, maybe im just trippin'.

Enjoy, all Unibroue beers should be tried at least twice.

This is no doubt a good beer. It pours almost a dissapointingly pale yellow, with a nice head lace that remains fairly well. The smell is spicy with hints of fruit. The taste is indeed strong and over the top, as advertised. The alcohol comes through strongly, as expected. The clove spicincess of the yeast leads into the bitterness of the hops. I am not sure if I am missing something here, but to me, this is a good, but not neccassirily world-class beer.

Served room temperature, poured from a bottle into a Belgian tulip glass.

Smell- Clove, coriander, orange peel, banana esters. Textbook for the style.

Appearance- Pours hazy light orange, with a thin, wispy veil of a head that rests atop the brew. Bubbly lacing on the glass. Nice.

Taste- Big clove notes, gingerbread, carmelized orange peel. Yeasty bite, smooth creamy fruitcake notes. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel- Fiery fizz, akin to a ginger beer, finishes smooth and creamy.

Overall- A very tasty brew. Great all around. I'm a bit surprised that it has taken this long for me to get this one. A great representation of the style.

Foil-top bottle received as a birthday gift back in September '08.

Appearance: Beautiful golden, wheat-like yellow in color with an unbelieveably gorgeous fluffy, white head that laces down the glass as you drink. Wonderful streams of carbonation rise to the surface.

Smell: Didn't really care for the smell. Mostly the aroma was musty with some sprinkling of citrus. I guess I would liken it to the smell of regular oatmeal.

Taste: Truly remarkable. Lemony with the perfect balance of cloves and a peppery quality. Some sweetness exists, but the flavor is balanced perfectly.

Mouthfeel: The best way to put it is this beer's carbonation dances on your tounge. Somehow the alcohol is hidden and the mouthfeel reminds me more of a Witbier than a 9% tripel.

Drinkability: Could easily drink a few of these sitting down and not be able to stand up. So refreshing for the alcohol that exists, but packed with so much flavor you just want to keep going back for more.

A beautiful beer, and a surprise at that. Drank it cold (perhaps a little too cold) at Lumiere in Vancouver from a red-wine glass.

Head was a little on the thin side, but it smelled wonderful: nutty and complex. Color was hard to gauge (it was a candle-lit type restaurant), but pleasantly "burnt amber."

Flavor was on par with many Belgian tripels (it brought to mind Grimbergen). First taste was excellent, and the flavor remains throughought. Easy to drink with very little alcohol taste, and it was consistent from the first sip to the last.

I am on a hunt for this beer in my hometown. Not to be missed, and cheaper than a true Belgian, for everyday drinking.
