It's hard to find much wrong with this beer.
It is a cloudy lighter brown when held to the light. A real thick foamy tan head that lingers.
Smells sweet like a mix between a tripel and a quad.
Just slides down, sweet goodness with just a hint of alcohol in the finish.
Another great beer from Unibroue.

750ml corked bottle into wine glass.

A: no head at all. Based on other reviews this makes me nervous. Cloudy amber beauty a little closer to brown than red. Tiny bubbles sit around the edge.

S: sweet with that Belgian funk. Malty with no hop on the nose. Solid smelling Belgian strong dark. Because of the lack of head I am having issues getting too much aroma.

T: obvious astringent notes expected from the style. fruity esters like apple but they are hidden a bit. The Belgian funk is wonderful. Finishes a tad bitter surprisingly.

M: medium bodied, somewhat thin. I think my bottle has lost some carb because it is pretty flat. Thst explains the non existant head.

O: this is good and if my bottle weren't a flat flop it would be better. I can feel the potential in the beer. Still a good drink though. I would happily buy it again in hopes my second try isn't as flat.

Presentation: long neck bottle, poured into tulip glass

Appearance- reddish brown, persistent white foam, thin

Smell: mild floral, herb

Taste: so carbonated and evervescent with a clean, balance of acidic crispness and clean/tart mouthfeel and complex sweet/dry with clean finish.

Notes: overall a very complex, hard to articulate the complexity. I have a preference for sweet, maltier beers, this is a reliable none too sweet, crisp and clean finished beer that goes down easy,
