Appearance - This beer was bottled 2 and a half years ago in may 2013, a 750 ml corked bottle it was perfect for that. Thee beer pours a slightly hazy orangy brown color with 2 fingers of offwhite head that receed to half a finger and then stay there. Very active carbonation,

Aroma - I get sweet apple pear and grape at first followed by some light peppery spice and some caramel. No bread smell I've come to know unibroue for.

Taste -You get that same apple pair grape at the beginnning followed by a peppery spice and some orange peel, banana, clove, and a fiarly bitter slightly sweet citrusy finish. Must have more hops than the other unbroue beers I've tried. Fantastic none the less.

Feel -This is a medium bodied ale with creamy carbnonation, More bitterness than most unibroue beers I've had but really its pretty good still. sometimes its good to break the norms.

Overall - This is another fantastic offering from unibroue and if you ever find a bottle of it I think you should try it, The flavors mesh well together the aromas are nice and the carbonation is very strong yet creamy. I really enjoyed this.

Pours a very hazy orange body, musty white grape flavor with dry cork. Very nice Belgian ale.

12/2013 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Having had it explained to me that this is the "hoppiest" brew they make it sets me at ease as it has been my least fave of all the Unibroue product I've tried.

Unibroue, It's not you...it's me. I am hop averse. Regardless this is still a drinkable, worthwhile beer.

11/10/13 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Quite spicy. Not the usual bready nose I know from Unibroue, but a very drinkable beer nonetheless.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $7.00 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well. Pours with a nice white 3" thick head that lasts and lasts. Dark gold almost amber color.

S- Caramel and yeast. Not much else but that is pretty good considering that we are speaking of just 2 ingredients.

T- Open and light. Almost a white hint. Enjoyable and refreshing. Not like the higher alcohol suggests.

M- Very good. Dry and light kind of like a white beer. Noir de Chambly is similar

O- Very good. Enjoyable blend of ale and white

Food Pairing

This hybrid beer went well with... Pizza! This time was hot peppers, green olives, pineapple and pepperoni

Enjoy!

Amber ornage colour, 1.5 fingers white head, little lace. Smell is fruit, green apples and ripe banana, signature unibroue yeast, touch of noble hop as well. Taste is like the nose yeasty with lots of fruit, banana, candy apple sweetness balanced by a light bitterness, a bit of spice in the finish, well balanced and quite nice. Medium carbonation, full-medium body. Solid stuff here, a nice belgian pale ale that drinks fairly easy, could see myself having this again.
