Thanks to Zor Prime for this..will certainly hit up Trackside here in Medicine Hat and see if it can be brought here for others to enjoy.

Pours a very cloudy peach amber gold. NIce head and lacing. Super aggressive carbonation as per Unibroue.

I found it had a woody, slightly spicy aroma. Spicy again being a real Unibroue calling card.

Well, for a Belgian style ale, it is quaffable. Found it had much in comon with it's aroma, just a lot richer. Smooth, sweet malts, a slight woody, almost oakiness in terms of how dry yet earthy it was. Hops are only there to provide just a slight, yet right amount of bitter/dryness.

Initially crisp from from active Unibroue carbonation, but overall quite nice and even bodied

Nice Ale...well worth seeking out or in my case, trading for

3.53/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - The beer poured a golden yellow color with a big white head.

Smell - The wheat comes through in the aroma with certain dustiness.

Taste - On the initial taste, one detects the sweet wheat and some dry banana notes. It almost reminds me of a less than sweet banana Laffy Taffy. The carbonation brushes the taste away quickly, leaving a dry aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - A high level of carbonation keeps the taste from lingering. The taste is not overly potent, which makes the taste brief.

Overall - I was looking forward to this one, but was not overly impressed.

- 5.5% ale brewed with whisky malt.

A: A glass consuming foam visual sits above a dirty, dense orange coloring. Head retention is very well lasting while leaving stratified rings of fancy lacing down the vessel. The crown in barley-beige in color, pitted foamy and cavenous on the surface, solid around the edges. Some quick release carbonation.

S: Wiff of whisky malt, dried cherries and dry grains on the nose. Finishes out with some dry barley.

T: Flavor had a toasted fruitiness, some apple-citrus, fresh barley, cherry-wood and toasted orange peel. Great belgian yeastiness, cantelope, wet pear slices highlighted by a sweet toasted grain juiciness. Soft rye-apple notes, leafy greens and a peppery-cola spicing on the finish.

M: Medium fullness for body, carbonation around the tongue's edges shows a mineral creaminess.

O: A 5.5% full of flavor and as usual , a great belgian yeastiness showing a wide spectrum of flavors. Unibroue never disappoints, they are the western worlds answer to Belgium beer.
