4.75/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Its glowing peachy orange hued body is made murky by the yeast sediment that once sat at the bottom of the bottle. A creamy white cap of head sits on top. Despite being so hazy, strong levels of carbonation can still be seen crawling up the sides of the glass.

Sweet and zesty pineapple is the main feature of the nose. Dried apricots and a bit of orange creamsicle make my mouth water. I still get a pronounced spicy sweet character as well as some ripe banana; both imparted by Unibroue's Belgian yeast strain.

Wow. Juicy and incredibly fruity. The bouquet of fruit in the nose has expanded to include ripe peaches and Anjou pears. A spiciness from the yeast as well as a faint damp wheat note form the edges around the beer. A very delicate bitterness meets with the the sweetness in the finish. A subtle, frothy breadiness lingers on the tongue.

The feel is frothy and rich; something I've come to associate with Unibroue. Medium bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. The ABV is masterfully hidden.

This makes me say with confidence that Unibroue is my favourite Canadian brewery. For me, this is near perfect from start to finish. Its beautifully rendered juicy fruitiness makes this beer world class and places it at the very top of the style. I'll be sure to buy some for the cellar.

Very smooth, sweet, doesn't taste very beer like. It's pretty good but its just not my type of beer. As you drink more it gets better, but I guess all alcohol's like that. Reminds me of wine so don't buy it if you're not into that sort of thing. C
