A dusky hazed golden orange with a quickly fading white head. Nice lacing as I consume. Smell is super. A melange of light bananas, apricots, pepper, some soap, Belgian yeast, light toasted grains, smoke and earth. Taste follws suit with a lightly soapy front that flashes the fruits and spicy pepper on its way to a dry grainy malt core. It lingers forever with large amounts of toasted whole grains, a light dry sweetness and hint of lemon. More dry than bitter the hops are earthy and mild. Finish is long and complex with notes of cinnamon coming through as weel as more toasted malt, light smoke and earth. Feel is light, dry, and quenching. Mild prickliness is spot on for this beer. A real winner here. I would dare say Unibroue's equivalent to Orval. Dry and super complex, it goes down like a thirst quencher but demands to be savored and appreciated. Great beer. Too bad it is not availible in any quantities here or I would be stocking up.

3.53/5 rDev -8.5%

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.
