First time reviewing an old favorite. Pours from the 750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip a pale clody golden-yellow with a thick bubbly white head. Excellent retention.

Nose is strong yeast, very fruity (bananas, peaches, lemons), and spicy. Slight alcohol aroma is also detectable.

Very citrusy and mildly hopped. There's a whole bouquet of fruit flavors - banana, peach, lemon, orange peel, and apricot along with a nice helping of wheat and spices. Why can't all Canadian beers taste like this?

Very crisp citric mouthfeel with a subtle warming sensation from the alcohol. Very palatable and drinkable, the only hinderince being the strong ABV. Excellently crafted and balanced; it's brews like this that make brewing seem like a true art form.

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

Pours a hazy golden straw with a decent little head that retains for some time.
Smells of slight alcohol and some banana i think, or some sort of fruit.
Tastes sweet and acidic/citrusy with the Belgian taste that most tripels have.
Carbonation is intense, like all bottle conditioned (ale on lees).

A good tripel from Canada!

Pours a lightly hazed golden. Small champagne like bubbles race to the top, battling the sediment for the quickest path to join their fellows in the thick white head. Aroma is medium fruity (banana and apple), and lightly yeaty. Flavor is apple and banana, ending clean and dry with some yeast undertones.

4.1/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy, on the lighter side of golden. One-finger head leaves minimal lacing.

Smells spicy and full of Belgian yeast. Pepper, clove, banana, apple, some mustiness.

Taste is smooth and comes on strong in the last half. Very spicy in a peppery way. Sweet and fruity. Finishes with some alcohol and lingering banana flavors.

Mouthfeel is medium, a bit creamy on the end. More carbonated that the pour would suggest.

This is a very solid beer, and very easy to find. Unibroue makes quality stuff.

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

Cloudy orange body with a tight large white head. Excellent lacing on this guy.

Candi sugar sweet aroma. Tropical fruit papaya, mango. Nice clove and pepper to complement the sweeter aroma.

Banana mango clove estery fruity combo hits the tongue nicely with a good complex flavor profile. Finishes dry with a residual alcohol twang.

Phenomenal beer full of flavor. Large chewy full carbonated body. My perfect non-stout morning beer with to sit around and be lazy watching college football/basketball (go jayhawks)

Pours a cloudy, bright, straw-colored light amber. Beautiful two finger creamy head. Very persistent and leaves excellent lacing. Well carbonated. Very nice looking...Like Sophie Marceau (yea, yea I know she's not Quebecoise...get over it)...Elegant, beautiful and timeless...

Aromas are chock full of good stuff...I get sweet malt and Belgian yeastiness right away - very robust. Some coriander...Some fresher notes, too, like lemonade way in the back. Nice and balanced...This is looking like a World class ale so far...

Flavor is luscious, like Sophie's very feminine body...The head and body of this beer are creamy and flavorful...Carbonation swells up initially, but there is a fine malty creamy texture to it that is a pleasure to feel. This gives way to an early middle that starts off tangy, and then immediately moves into a warm series of flavors: nice malt component balanced very nicely by the yeast...they meld in perfect harmony. This is a less spicy version of a Belgian ale...But something about it is more subtle and nuanced. The malt and yeast dance around a little, until they finally give way to a slightly hoppy and understated bitterness that lingers for a good long time. Excellent beer. It's around $9/4-pak, so it ain't cheap or expensive. ABV is awesome at 9% and completely and totally masked. This is wonderful and drinkable to a fault. Many people would get very hammered off this ale. It's excellent on all fronts and hardly any fault to it. Must find and drink. Perfect any time of year, also...

What I like most: The beautiful, nuanced flavor profile, beautiful appearance, wonderful nose...pretty much everything.

What I like least: the price, and just barely a fault here.

Verdict: World class ale from Chamble, Quebec. Absolutely must find.
