3.85/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Out of the 12oz. bottle...

A - Cloudy yellow pour with a few chunks...I think I "disturbed" the yeast on the bottom a bit too much. Nice fluffy white head doesn't hold up real well.

S - Grassy and doughy. Quite a bit of lemon and a touch of pineapple. There seems to be a cheesy sharpness to the aroma.

T - Apples and white grapes first, then that cheese note that I can't really place comes in. A hint of bubblegum before you really get hit with pepper towards the back end.

M - Lightish medium body with a good deal of carbonation. Really matched the flavor well and was probably my favorite part of the beer.

D - Pretty easy to drink. The lively feel really helps here. Alcohol wore on me a bit as I got through this one.

4.31/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

I love Unibroue beers, every single one of them has left me satisfied. That said, this bottle says triple wheat on the bottle, so I think it is a wheatwine, and it tastes like it if I may. BA says belgian strong pale, but W/E.

Pours a dark yellow, not quite orange, but rather a bold light gold. Aggressive pour yields a 2 finger white head that falls quite fast and leaves a ring and spotty lacing. After 5 minutes there are no bubbles. 3.75

Smell is very fruity and spicy. I smell stuff like coriander, clove, maybe a dash of cinnamon. Also, a strong fruit character, as in concentrated flavor. Its of light fruit, like pears and banana and pineapple, but I guess I could say dried fruit since it is rather decadent than floral.

Taste is the same as the smell with a deep fruity, yeasty flavor that is light yet intense, wheatwine at it's finest. Alot of sweetness going on, and also spices. This beer tastes damn good, I could drink alot of this.

Feel is semi-light, with medium carb. Very nice.

Overall I like this beer as a wheatwine, and I guess also as a Belgian pale. Its rather sweet with spice tones that make it unique. Buy this if you like lighter beers but are not afraid to try one at 9%

There is something special about the Unibroue ales/beers.This one is no exception to the greatness from this Canadian brewery.I wont go through the normal smell taste and what not.Its what a Belgian should be.Bold,Spicy and leaves you satisfied.Just be careful the alcohol is well hidden.Cheers.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- it pours a murky golden color with a coarse white head that fades fast. Runny lacing

S- Caramel, cinnamon, coriander, alcohol, dried pineapple, and a touch of clove.

T- caramel is the first flavor that comes through. Sweet dried fruits follow and eventually a dry funky yeast flavor with a touch of clove.

M- Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation.

O- pretty good. Another solid beer from Unibroue.
