Eau Benite from Unibroue

The look of it: Very yellow, about 2 fingers of head.

The smell of it: Citrus with a touch of orange.

The taste of it: Wow, doesn't feel like a 7,7% ABV. Lots of Citrus and some orange on the taste. Goes down very easily. It is smooth. A very nice tasting beer. Feels like a White beer.

So overall would I recommend it? For damn sure. If you can find that beer go get it. Feels like a Hoegaarden or 1664 blanc. This is a kind of a beer you can get f*** up with and you won t even notice it. I will buy this again !

This may be my favorite trippel. It was a very strong piercing beer with a lot of flavor and sweetness as well. The smell of fruit and hops filled the glass as I poured it and the champagne like bubbles were overwhelmingly graceful! The aromas were fantastic! Then after a quick settle the taste of this was just perfect! It was sweet and warming, and the unfiltered goodness fills your mouth with malty flavors. I highly suggest trying the "holy water" and giving Canada a thumbs up for one GREAT beer!
