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.

3.7/5 rDev -4.1%
- 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.
