11/21/13 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Dated 2008. Consumed 2013. This has to be one of the finest beers I've ever had. Bar none. Please tell me I don't have to wait until 2018 for another! Where do I start? Aroma? Nothing outstanding but appealing nonetheless. Pour? head was a bit shallow & lacing practically none existent. But just wait until this hits your tongue...smooth, lovingly sweet yet bitter. A love affair from the first sip. seek this out if you can. Otherwise wait til 2018. :^(

I am sampling a 6 year old bottle that has been in my cellar since its purchase.
Pours a clear copper hue with fizzy bleached white head that foams up 2 cm and fades to a sturdy edge layer and a few wispy islands. A little slow gush of foam on the opening.
Aroma is white wine grapes, biscuity malt and a pretty good boozy dose. Aroma is complex and appealing, definitely has a vinous quality to it.
First sip reveals an average to light body with very fine fizzy carbonation that tingles on the palate throughout the sampling.
Flavor is some white grapes and pears, fairly sweet overall and the booze that made a showing on the nose is nowhere to be found on the flavor.
The beer is very smooth and easy to drink, flavor is complex yet light and airy.
I am enjoying this and wish I had an additional bottle in the cellar to share with good friends.
IF you have any of these bottles aging, it is probably time to drink now and enjoy.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Rich, yeasty aroma with lots of spice and a champagne-like effervescence. Notes of white wine and green apple.

T- Has a more traditional Belgian flavor to it with the fruity esters playing a delicate role along with the spice. Very drinkable and a bit sweet with minimal bitterness. Notes of pear and more green apple.

M- Crisp and bright with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Good but doesn't stick out above many of Unibroue's other excellent brews.
