look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Looks the type. A golden orange, almost apricot color with a hint of haze. The head is a bright, brilliant white series of tiny, tiny bubbles. The head doesn't last terribly long, but it's vibrant while it does.

Has the fruity, tangy yeast smell like the Belgians are known for. A bit of grape and Granny Smith apple, very fruitcake like. You can smell the carbonation.

The follows the same steps as the smell. Granny Smith apples, a hint of honey, slight notes of bread/yeast. As it warms, vanilla shines through.

Crazy complexity. Just about every sensation in your mouth you can think of. Sweet, spicy, tart, tangy, dry, crisp, cleansing, with only hints of bitter and the slightest note of heat from the alcohol. Light-bodied.

Overall, this is about as good a beer as I can remember. It's amazing it's not a Belgian brewery because they've got this beer down pat. No flaws. Really, really a must have.

Bought a 1 PT. 9.4 FL. OZ 750 ML bottle from Schnucks in Town & Country, MO for $7.49. Poured from the Orange/Sunset bottle w/ a Ship on the front into a 16oz Tulip Glass. Has BEST BEFORE 08-04-14 on the back of the bottle.

Aroma- Tons of wheat and dig it! Also some spice, banana, and clove. Is this an Unibroue? I say so!

Appearance- Pours a 4 finger, frothy head that lasts for a good amount of time. Has a dark orange colored body that has good depth. Leaves good lacing.

Flavor- Tons of wheat and spice start this one up. After finishing half the glass, a ton of hop and malt are involved in the taste. Sweet but then has a medium bitterness at the finish. Very complexed!

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, High Carbonation, Gritty, Tons of ingredient, and then leaves sweet flavors on the palate.

Overall Impression- As one of my top 10 breweries, you literally can't order a bad Unibroue! I'm surprised I haven't had this one before either. Enjoyed the complexity, body, and ingredient in this one. Enjoy this next time you order!

A: Pours dark straw color with a nice fluffy white head

S: Apple, fruit cake, vanilla, sweet malts, bready creaminess, rum raisin booziness

T: At first, a malty sweetness and a tropical fruitiness, followed by little bites of citrus, and a slightly sour twinge towards the end.

O: This is also another fine offering from unibroue. Will buy again.
