"The End of the World"

This is a very intriguing beer possessing a lot of what I like about Belgians and little of what I do not. This beer pours a slightly cloudly golden/amber in color with a frothy off-white head that eventually recedes into a sticky lacing. The nose is citric in nature, a heavy scent of the trademark Unibroue yeast strainl very earthy. The taste is similar but with some delicate complexities added into the whole affair. Tangerines and sticky fruit, some mild herbal qualities and the strong yeast presence swirl into an interesting mix. Not brutal in any sense however which is what you might expect from a 9% beer. This one certainly walks a fine balance and does so extremely well. This is probably my favorite Belgian pale, extremely well done.

Slàinte!

Pours a hazy gold with a one finger white head that disappears quickly, no lacing. The scent is very yeasty along with spices and lemon zest. The taste has a strong lemon zest and hoppy flavors. The mouthfeel has a effervescent feel to it. Lots of carbonation. No alcohol presence makes this very drinkable.

Tasted 1/16/04 at our little Extravaganza Belgique.

Ok, so our final tasting wasn't truly Belgian, but it's so good and I had one ready to drink, so we figured, why not?

Alluring orange-yellow with a pure white head and a brown drop of yeast shaken from bottle's bottom. Soft, bready aroma, almost like an orange scone. Flavor is full of the yeast, with bright citrus fruit and a beautifully crisp finish. Amazingly smooth in the mouth, with no evidence that this brew hides a potent 9% ABV. Crisp and easy drinking. Orange, lemon, spices, yeast, wheat--wonderful.

This became my new all-time favorite the first time I tasted it, and drinking it again makes me pretty happy all over again.

Spoils of the 10/11/03 Knoxville Raid.

Marked best before 5/20/07, cellared by me almost a year.

Hazy yellow with a short lived head and really no lacing at all. Huh?

Smell is spicy with some phenol alcohol and a slight apple rind fruityness. Light and fulfilling.

Taste is spicy alcohol with some apple and citrus. Reminiscient of Duvel with a lot more alcohol presence. Detracts from the mouthfeel a bit due to the burn.

Very drinkable, although I have no idea why I didn't get a nice frothy head. Alcohol will get even more dominate when it warms.

Loud pop when corked. Never get tired of that sound.

Massive foamy crown with a hazy pale orange color. I've seen better lacing.

Biscuit, soap, pear, apple, yeasty spice, lemon zest, slight alcohol,

Nice flash of biscuity-malty-soapy flavors in the start that quickly evolves to fruitier flavors on the palate which includes green apple, pear, pineapple, lemon zest, and a touch of orange pulp. The finish is quite spicey (nutmeg and coriander come to mind) with earth yeast flavors. Complex!

High attenuation leaves a light bodied beer that is so refreshing. Prickly yet delicate carbonation.

This is a great beer that always finds it's way into my refridgerator. Pairs well with pesto and salmon.

4.33/5  rDev +0.2%

Pours a very nice clear yellow with a small but lively white head. Lot o' bubbles that dissapear quickly. The smell is rather floral with a bit of berry coming through. can't really nose the alcohol, which is suprising.

The taste is fabulously light, delicate, and complex. Quite a fruity body like a wine but without any astringency. Delicate peppery spices come through in the back, and still the alcohol is imperceptable. Mouthfeel is slightly assertive without a ton of carbonation. Very drinkable.

A nice sipper of a stong ale.
