    Another great beer from this brewery. Pours a light orange color with thick head. Very complex flavor and for a beer that's 10% abv, the alcohol isn't very noticeable at all.

    This was a beer of ages past. A belgian strong worthy of the name. Golden brown with a thick long lasting head. The aroma was yeasty with some orange/lemon hints. The flavour was well balanced with a malty front and a hop-laden finish.

    This was the first of the anniversary ales if I'm correct and has long since been retired. The beer started off wee as it poured a nice hazy golden brown. The aroma was very complex, sweet malt, some grains, spices, and some fruit. The flavour was also very complex, but less so than the aroma. The flavour had a hoppish bite as well.

    Cloudy yellow with an orange tint. Head has unusually large bubbles, but it fades to a thin small-bubbled foam later on. Very citrusy, mild spiciness with some estery notes getting stronger towards the bottom of the bottle. The fuzzy mouthfeel from the carbonation (similar to Chimay Red) makes it a little more difficult to drink than it should for such a light beer.

    Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. I think I'm turning away from the the belgian blond/tripel style. Too sweet.Yeasty nose. Hides the alcohol well. Just not my thing.

    Before I get too hot-and-heavy into the beer review itself, a quick and mildly humorous story. In the Spring I met up with a bunch of LA-based beer geeks for a pub-crawl through my buddy Darren's territory of Long Beach. Along the way, me and Louey stopped at Darren's place for one reason or another. Next thing I know, he's giving me a bottle of Unibroue 10...! Quite a honor, especially considering that we had only met face-to-face for the first time a few hours prior. Anyway, in the heat of the pub-crawl, I left the bottle in Louey's car, and forgot all about it. Darren asked me about it a week later, and I remembered that Louey still had it. In the meantime, I rediscovered the fact that I had a bottle of 10 in my cellar the entire time... :) I wrote off Darren's gift as "possesion is 9/10-ths of the law", until all three of us hooked up again at the San Diego Real Ale `Fest, and lo and behold, there's the fabled beer again!

    Anyway, enough long and tedious stories. On to the case at hand. With a minute pop, pulled the cork out of this bad-boy, and very carefully poured this into a La Fin Du Monde glass. Not a lot of massively wasteful foam, which is nice change from most Belgian (and Belgian-esqe) Tripels and Strong Pales. Nice 1/4" of head the entire time, with thick and sticky Belgian lacing as things progressed. And a brilliant gold body, to boot.

    Wonderful aroma of malt and alcohol, but with some exotic hops in the mix, too. The same, and then some, goes for the flavor profile. Very nice warming alcohol aspect, but not dominatingly so. Complex interplay of malt here, along with some sugar, I suspect (acceptable to the style), and a very muted thread of Noble hops to keep this from becoming Malt Liquor.

    Perhaps a bit much for one person to drink (on a work night, no less), but I'm not stopping now...! This beer is just way to exceptional to dilly-dally with!

    Light gold color. Medium head, once the initial opening volcano subsided. Aroma is malty, yeasty, citrusy and fruity. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. It’s malty, yeasty and citrusy. Very typical of a Belgian Triple. Flavors are softly fruity and citrusy, with hints of spices like coriander and clove. Well balanced. Very tasty. The 10% alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth and a little dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    This reminds me of the Grand Cru that Celis made while they were around. Beautiful pale yellow color, beautiful taste, it's a truly wonderful beer

    2 years old bottle - Light brown/yellowish brew with a great head that stayed on for a while. Good body with alcohol taste a bit distinct. Very complex mix of spice with a sweet aftertaste. Anotgher great belgium inspired brew from Unibroue.
