4.03/5 rDev -6.7%
Twelve ounce brown twist cap bottle, with best by date clearly marked on back.
Bright blazing gold, with a blossoming, tight white head. When the yeast is added it goes cloudy, & bright yellow, almost like a wit. The head takes on a much creameir look after the yeast pour.
Bright punchy aroma, sweet & inviting. Its not as punchy after the yeast pour, but an earthy quality is added to the nose.
A rather clean tasting ale. Straight forward malt sweetness, a touch of tart apple like flavours, & some pepper. A dry finish with a subtle but effective hop character. Some solvent flavour lingers. Some earthy / herbal flower qualities are added with the yeast. It also becomes more peppery.
Medium bodied while still being somewhat soft, with pinpoint carbonation.
Quite a nice Belgian strong pale ale. It features a refined sophitication that I enjoyed.

This beer is a Tripel Belgian styled-ale. It has a nice orange and spicy aroma. The flavors are pretty complex and mostly great. To start, you get nothing except for a blast of carbonation that lasts at least a second. But finally that evolves on your palate. First tastes are of orange and other citrus along with spices, noticeably cloves and cinnamon. Lots of yeasty and doughy flavors as well. A nice finish and aftertaste too. The 9% alcohol warms you up but in a good way and is not annoying at all.

This was the first micro brew I ever tried. It was at a coffee house in Orlando. This beer single handedly got me into the love of fine beers. Thank you Unibrau! Poured a cloudy goldish color with a nice head. Smelled heavenly with a mixture of raisons, candied fruit, apples, and dried apricots. Taste was spectacular with upfront fruit and spice and mild floral hop undertones. I just sipped away at this beer and listened to some great rifs on my friend's acoustic guitar.

A: A lightly hazy goldenrod with a rocky, creamy, thick white head that settles slowly to a nice covering and leaves some faint lace patterns on the glass.
S: Oranges, pears, green apples, cloves, light pepper spice from the alcohol. Bold, complex, and wonderful.
T&M: Peppery alcohol, some light fruits (pear and apple from the nose), phenolic and medicinal flavors, clove. Flavor could be a bit stronger, but that's only a minor complaint. Lighter body with a brisk, bubbly carbonation that creates a nice effect, though I would appreciate a bit more creaminess.
D: 9% hurts a bit, but it's still flavorful, crisp, and refreshing. Really a wonderful spring or summertime beer.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle. Corked and all. Classy but not a brew for monday night football. I can appreciate this sort of thing but this one just didn't do a whole lot for me.
Pours a nice crisp yellow with a yeasty aroma. Great mouthfeel, but the flavour was a not doing much for the o'l taste buds. I must be fair in that this was the only sample I've had and I did not take note of the "best by" date. I should try it again because it really did sound like something that would be right up my alley.
I hope it was just a bad sample, but if not, it really did taste like the End of the World.

One of my favorite Belgian style beers, and by far my favorite that I've had from this brewery. Just now getting around to reviewing it, though.
A: Cloudy, rich yellow color. Head is maybe 1/2 a finger, and falls down to a thin layer relatively quickly.
S: Belgian yeast, Candy sweetness, stone fruits. Alcohol comes through as well, lending a richness of aroma. Amazing smelling beer.
T: Sweet malts hit up front with a slight ester fruitiness. The sweetness gives way to a slight bitter taste and a punch from the alcohol that keeps the beer from being cloying. Overall impression is that of a sweet beer that is wonderful balanced with the other elements.
M: Pretty heavy on the carbonation, medium bodied and slightly sticky.
O: As I said: One of my favorite Belgian style beers. Infinitely drinkable, it balances all the flavors nicely and not only keeps the 9% alcohol from overpowering the taste of the other elements, but actually incorporates it into the balance. Really a great beer, worth going well out of your way for.

What a beer. This is my second Unibroue and I must say that I am highly impressed. Bottle-condition.
This elixir of the gods poured cloudy with orange and lemon hues. Strong head that lasted, expelling a bouquet of sweetness and floral. I know that is the standard "quote-unquote", but hell, I was inebriated!
A revelation for my taste buds. Unbelievable!

Pours a hazy golden color with only a thin white ring and not much in the way of lacing.
Aroma immediately hits with fruity notes of banana, apricot and some pear. Yeast is detected and some cloves also come through clean in the front.
Taste reveals lots of fruit and spice. Notes of banana and orange with hints of pepper and cloves in the background. The initial sweetness is quickly balanced out by the spiciness.
Medium body with lots of carbonation. Alcohol appears to be well-hidden for the most part. Cool and refreshing, well worth having a few more around.
