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.

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.
