This beer is the best of all time. It is the best white beer I had form now and definitely the best one from the Uibroue Brewery. The yeast they use to brew this white is really the real deal. This beer have put Unibroue on the map. They have many good beer but nothing like this one.

I have tried a couple of beer that have copy this white Belgian, like the Blanche de Shawi, from Le trou du diable brewery, but they did surpassed yet the super nice taste of this one.

In my quest of white beer tasting hobby, this one is always my reference to compare the white beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a teku. Slightly hazy, lemonade-yellow with a tall thin head that leaves a lot of lace. Aromas of spice and yeast. Taste is nice, but quite spicy. Mouth is on the thin side, with nice carbonation. Overall, a nicely crafted beer, but the spice and flavoring are a little heavy.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. After dinner. Fine, but with nearly nothing of the coriander notes typical of the style. Mostly a wheat/banana profile with high carbonation.

Taste and smell exceptional. Almost didn't want to swallow because of amazing feeling and taste on palate. A delicious wheat beer that gets it right.

Look: 4.5
Super – Mega – Loads of bright white foam. Almost meringue-like. Very active. A hazy yellow / light gold.
Smell: 4.5
There is some funk, some earthy vegetable scents, and a lot of coriander and spice. Definitely Belgian yeast.
Taste: 4.5
No hop bitterness at all, and really no evidence of hops at all. There’s a savory vegetable flavor (like a shot of V-8 in the bottle). Not as citrusy as I expected, but on the stronger side of the coriander. Quite malty and sweet.
Feel: 4.25
Light/Medium bodied. Very foamy.
Overall: 4.25
Overall a very good beer. Sweet and malty like a Tripel, but fruity and spiced like a Wit. Very good and will get again.

Poured from a 341mL bottle into a snifter.
L- Cloudy, golden tangerine with good carbonation and frothy white head with excellent lacing.
S- Oranges, peaches, vanilla mangoes, raisins, grassy herbs. Smells like the Okanagan Valley in the summer.
T- Smooth and creamy with the crisp fruits it smelt of. Although it could use a bit more complexity as it comes of a tad watery.
F- Kind of feels like you're drinking mildly flavored water with decent carbonation. It is very creamy and refreshing though. Also an orange and vanilla after taste which lingers on your palate.
O- It is not overly sweet like commercial white beers such as Shock Top or Belgian Moon, but it does fail in terms of smell which comes off as muted compared to its big smell and golden appearance. It is surprisingly creamy but it pales in comparison to this breweries more complex beers such as Maudite, Fin Du Monde, and Trois Pistole. Also on a side note, the foil on Unibroue bottles is damn annoying and can get in the beer if you're not careful.
