It pours somewhat hazy and with a huge head. The aroma is of sour wheat, candi sugar and of yeast. The flavor is well balanced between sweetness, bitterness and mild sourness. Full bodied and with a smooth texture.

Poured into a tall tulip. Hazy copper-orange with a constant ring of thin white head. Aroma is of yeast with hints of lavender and green apple. Taste is wonderfully sweet and complex. Mouth is medium bodied, creamy smooth and with medium carbonation...just right. Overall, a delicious Belgian ale.

From Saveur-Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x04-05. Full of apple notes and some white grapes. Strong yet pleasant carbonated feeling with zesty spices that invites to short, very enjoyable sips

Another shout out to my big bro for leaving this behind in my Dad's fridge for little bro to enjoy....and enjoy I did! Major complex infused flavors going on here. These Belgian ales are something else...so sweet and smooth yet hop evident. Wow! Outrageous stuff!

Appearance: cloudy; orangish-white body; effervescent; medium frothy white head, slight lacing

Smell: spicy; citrusy; yeasty

Taste: a bit of peppery spice with citrus; very well balanced and delicious

Mouthfeel: kind of creamy feel from the carbonation

Remarks: one of my new favorites. Definitely look for this again.

Pours a golden straw with a slight haze. Nice fluffy white head. Smells of yeast, apples, and banana. The flavor is banana, apple, and bread, with some other fruity flavors I can't quite place. The yeast is definitely the star of this beer. Feel is incredibly smooth and it's medium-bodied. Overall, awesome beer from Unibroue. Will definitely get this again.

Straw coloured with some film that just won't quit and no lacing.

After being opened for a minute and warming some time the fruity nature of the wheat comes thru followed by some sweet bready malts. Mouthfeel is crisp due to the carbonation and vague apple flavors.

Pretty damn good.
