It's hard to describe this, but it is a unique Belgian ale with a sweet coriander malt richness, smells great tastes great, So for all the ales from Uniboue are excellent. I'm seeking out there other offereings as well to try them out.

Best beer in North America and up there with the Belgian greats like Tripel Karmeliet. Though La Fin du Monde gets all the attention from Unibroue, Donde is somehow better.
I've never seen Donde on tap anywhere (why not???) so from a bottle it must be served. Smell is a complex aroma of fine yeast, dark fruit and sweet malt. Pours like a weiss beer with little head and lacing. The appearance is a deep, golden bronze that's a bit cloudy, almost like a German Weizenbock. And to that end, I think this one should really be classified as a Weizenbock as it's looks and tastes like a really intense weissbier. The bottle says it's triple wheat and I believe them. Taste is a bright explosion of fruit, clove and a sweet caramel. Finish is smooth as water off a duck's ass. Alcohol is well hidden as it's 9% and there's not much tang from the fermentation. Begs to be savoured and enjoyed slowly. This is a celebration beer and a good alternative to any wine you my enjoy.
Unibroue is so far ahead of its North American competition, it's painful for their challengers. While the competition continue toil away in their basements with their poor experiments they call beer (Victory Golden Monkey, anyone?), Unibroue continue weave golden wheat into bottles to create magic.
