Poured a cloudy orange colour with a large foamy head which died down in seconds.

The smell is sweet cloves, bananas, alcohol and bubble gum.

The taste is sweet malts,bananas and alcohol

The mouth feel is medium with medium carbonation. There's a tingling sensation on the tongue probably from the abv.

This is the last of my Unibroue taster box and they have all been good but all very similar.

Served in a tulip (as stated on the bottle).

Appearance: A slightly hazy gold-amber, white head after a hard pour rises to roughly a fingers length.

Smell: Light yeast, and feel of barley.

Taste: Honey sweet but yet bitter, yeast overpowering malts. These essence of yum....Unibroue has outdone themselves.

Mouth: Medium-full, with an after taste that is right on point. flavor is stickier than gum on your shoes.

Overall: Sip after sip this beer is prime. Rare you can treat yourself to quality like this. I will buy this again and again and so should you, Salud!

During the pour you can just hear the effervescence. A bubbly white head builds up only to disappear moments later into almost nothing just leaving a hazy golden body.

Grass, lemon, orange, and spice. Very nice.

Citrus fruit, bread, and spicy yeastiness abound.

Very crisp and bubbly. Medium bodied and slightly drying.

I would suggest drinking this in whatever small 11.2/12oz bottle format they do as it got boring towards the end of the 750. Still a good beer by all means.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pale yellow, hazy, with a hint of orange. Pale, frothy head, not very thick, and not much lacing (meager lacing seems to be a fault of all the beers I've had from Unibroue).

S: Citrus is foremost, also grass, wet leather, and white pepper, with enough yeast to let you know it's there.

T: Moderate sweet malt, followed by lemon-grass. Slight fatty acid flavors that give way to mild bitterness and a phenolic finish. It actually tasted really good for the first few sips, while it was still quite cold, but the harsher edges came out as it warmed up.

M: Powerfully carbonated (more than I'd expect from the head). The alcohol burn is strong enough to notice. Dry from the start, it grows astringent in the finish.

O: It was promising at first, but finished just so-so. Not bad, but there are many better wheat beers in the world.

Appearence- like a dark yellow with some orange. very transparent and bubbles collect at top of glass. leaves a slight lacing
smell- sweet and yeasty, maybe some honey and oranges.
taste- yeast, breadiness, with a sweet honey-like flavor. No bitterness. Cant taste the 9% abv
mouthfeel- very light and refreshing.

overall its very easy to drink, but a little sweet, without any bitterness,which i like in beers for a balance.
