3.65/5 rDev -11.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Pale colored and bubbly, with many tiny bubbles dancing around in the beer. Unfortunately there was some chillhaze evident with my serving.
Smelled yeasty and sweet, almost candy like with some earthy tones, hints of blood orange.
Tasted light, sweet and alcoholic almost solvent like, with some highly phenolic notes. Somewhat grainey with a hint light bitterness. Onthe money for the style.
Highly carbonated, and mostly light in body. Very drinkable beer, that became easier to consume as it warmed up nicely in my hands

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%
