Pours a deep yellow golden with a slight haze and white head. Head did not retain as long as I expected from a bottle conditioned Belgian ale.

Smells of pale malts, light spices, honey, maybe apricot reserves.

Begins with the malts, followed by a honey and spiced sweetness, and finished with a crisp dryness one would expect from a Belgian beer at times. Highly carbonated. Lingering honey sweetness that follows the dry finish at times.

Beautiful beer. Big fan of this style and this beer. I am not a fan of the lingering honey finish that follows the dryness at times and can almost be mead-like.

I picked this up based on the BA score and I am not disappointed.

Appearance: Very pale and cloudy
Smell: Almost none, but slight esters.
Taste: Smooth, clean and rich. Hint of banana.
Mouthfeel: Full and rich.
Overall: I am partial to dark beers but this one is quiet nice. Perhaps a little too must ester aroma and taste for me but overall, this is a nice beer. Sip slowly at 9%.

Served from a 750ml bottle at cellar temperature

A: Thick 2.5 finger head with some lacing. Bubbles streaming up the glass making it look almost champagne like. Nice opaque blonde color due to the yeast being poured into my glass.

S: A little bit of honey, cloves and coriander.

T: Quiet similar to Fin Du Monde. Rather sweet with little hop character and relies mostly on Belgian style malts and yeast. Delicious clove and coriander flavors fill the mouth with a nice spiciness. Pears and apple flavors are also present as well. Beautifully refreshing despite the high alcohol content. Perhaps some honey too.

M: Crisp finish due to the high carbonation and the alcohol tends to dry the palate a tad. Bubbles tickle your tongue on the way in and throat on the way down. Alcohol content is barely noticeable making this beer dangerously drinkable.

O: Very good beer. Unibroue is my favorite brewery and this just strengthened that bond. Will buy again. I will probably buy a mixed 341 pack though instead of having to sit down and drink a 750 by myself.
