4.58/5 rDev +10.4%
Poured into bottle-mandated glassware!
A: Bright golden pour as brilliantly clear as beers come. A fizzy white head that persists due to the beer's effervescence.
S: Huge sweet floral aroma right upon opening the bottle. Strong fruity aroma after the pour. Very enticing.
T: Powerfully floral hop flavor with only the lightest bitterness. The floral flavor is augmented by the sweet fruitiness of esters--very apple in character. A crisp bite of hops and modest maltiness that is only apparent in the finish. Will quickly make you wonder where the 9% alcohol went. Just a little warm on the finish. Really quite spectacularly complex.
M: Extremely light and bubbly; must be lots of candi sugar in this brew to hit these gravities with such a light body. Be careful that you don't drink this one too fast.

3.85/5 rDev -7.2%
For a beer from Unibroue, this one is somewhat lacking. The aroma is floral and attractive, with all of things we all love about Belgian ale. But the taste is nowhere near a match: it manages to deliver some bready, lemony flavor, but overall is flat, spongy and directionless. They hid the ABV somewhere, because this 9% didn't leave behind much of an effect. Not something to drink around power tools, but you ought to at least be able to write your name neatly in third-grade cursive after downing a bottle.

4.18/5 rDev +0.7%
A: Pours out with light finger width snow-white head. Golden in color with medium carbonation.
S: Light yeast smell with hint of apples.
T: Slight sweet citrus taste. Medium-bodied with great mouthfeel. Finishes crisp but not too dry.
O: Great for a sunny afternoon lunch or hell just anytime. I would not believe it was 9% if it wasn't on the bottle. The beer has a complex profile but then finishes with a solid refreshing finish. I would love to try this same beer with some age on it and see if the profile changes at all.

4.18/5 rDev +0.7%
A: Hazy straw color, with yeast sediment in suspension. Long lasting creamy white head.
S: Wheat and sour apple.
T: Big vanilla notes, plum, fig and cherry. Malt backbone is a combination of caramel and crystal malts. Hints of roasted barley and pecans. Hop character is light, and bitterness is light too. Belgian yeast imparts a citrusy sourdough
M: Moderate to heavy carbonation, light to medium body.
O: I like the whole bottle conditioned real ale, but im turned off slightly when i actually see yeast floculation in suspension. A good solid belgian strong ale, but lets tone it down with the sediment unibroue.
