    Finally got around to opening this last weekend meaning it is about 7 years old; has held up surprisingly well. Cloudy dark gold pour with a thin white head. Notes of funk, Belgian yeast, pepper, bread, clove, coriander, banana and pear. Good carbonation considering the age; flavors all mesh very well together with just a hint of alcohol peaking through. Better than expected.

    Bottled. Hazy golden colour with particles floating around. Head is mediumsized and white. Aroma is pretty much lemon, some slight glueish alcohol, wood and some yeast. Flavour is fruity, lots of peach, some glueish alcohol and caramel malts. Apples and some grassyness in the finish. Fruity, but bittery aftertaste.

    Available in Chicago at Binny's. This anniversary ale pours a cloudy gold colour with a thin foamy white head. The aroma is very complex with a plethora of spices, some grainy malt, some light fruit hints, and the yeast (what would a Unibroue beer be without the yeast). The flavour is bready malt, with spices and hops in the finish.

    Pours a light yellow-orange color with a small head. Very nice aroma of sweat malts and fruits and some floral hints. It has a sweat malty taste with a hint of bitterness and alcohol flavor.

    I believe this beer has been retired. The beer poured a murky orange-gold colour with a thick white head that stuck around. The aroma was a complex combination of yeast, Malt, hops, and some fruity spices like nutmeg and cloves. The flavour is slightly sweet (malts??) with a little hoppy bitterness offset by the clovelike spiciness.

    750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a huge fizzy white head that quickly goes down to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

    The aroma is slightly sour and tart yeastiness, bready malts and some banana and cloves.

    The flavor is sweet and slightly tart and fruity malts and bananas and cloves with a musty dry finish that is slightly bitter. More sweetness comes out as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium with sharp carbonation.

    Overall, an OK Belgian - nothing special. It's kind of like a trippel, but a little too sweet.

    Okay, so I have come across another Unibroue product and I have had many examples of their yearly celebration ales in the past and I expect nothing less than high marks from this one. The aroma is of peppery spice as well as some classic Unibroue yeast and offers some dried, dark fruit overtones like plum, apple, sweet pineapple, and pear as well as maybe some very slight dishwater (phenolic) defects but that could have come from it being shipped to the states. The appearance is a varnished copper to a deep rusty-orange when held to the light and offers a massive, well-carbonated head on top that is white in color with awesome head retention. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp and medium-bodied with tropical fruit complexity with some mild spice balance with a palate that is frothy and entertaining. The flavor is fruity as well as musty offering pineapple and apple characters with overtones of sweetness with maybe some cloves and other spice characters with an aftertaste that is very sharp and clean and similar to what some well made pilsners have and has a finish that allows no alcohol to be present and is just oh so smooth considering the %ABV. Overall, what an incredible brew here and what a palate this one has and on the back of my tongue I taste tropical mango flavors and tingling sensations of alcohol and mustiness...I am going to age one of these babies and let it mature for a while for sure; incredible offering here!

    750ml with a date of Jan 6, 2006 on the side. Pours a pale orange with a frothy two finger head that is very slow to settle to a heavy cap. The lacing that is left behind is very thick, and completely covers the insides of my glass. Smel; lots of fruity aromas with apples, melons and some oranges. There's also some spices with colves and pepper, and very yeasty. Overall, it's a bit more mellow than I was expecting (or maybe hoping for). Taste; very yeasty upfront, almost chalky. Then the fruits come out with oranges at first, followed by the apples and melon. The spices are nicely present with cloves and peeper, but there's also a touch of cinnamon in there, with very little alcohol coming through at all. Mouthfeel/Drinkability; as with all of the Unibroue beers that I've had so far the mouthfeel is good, with a medium body, and very smooth carbonation. Drinkability is very good, almost to good for the high abv. I found I had to force tmyself to slow down a little. Overall this was a good beer, but there just seems to be a sameness with a lot of the Uniboue beers that I've had. I'm not sure if it's the yeasts they use, or the styles that lead to this, or maye it's just me. Whatever, this is pretty darn good no matter what the case.

    courtesy of Per Samuelsson - hazy golden-orange colour with a firm white head; perfumy pineapple and tangerines aroma with solid spicy notes behind; sweet and medium malt body; cider-like finish, yeasty with more fruity and spicy tones along with a warming alcohol touch - very Unibroue-like, good and predictable, but I can live with it

    So I pour this cellared beer from Canada. I get a hazy gold pour with a stand of off white foam, for a while. I smell pineapple, pepper, cloves, pilsner malt, sugary alcohol, other tropical fruits (coconut? mango? who cares...) a slight wisp of something spicy...hops? or yeast? The foam collapses in a jiffy and its full of haze, bold, I like it. The body and carbonation are there, the bottle condition paid off, even down the road, alcohol is warming in the slightest, but zero burn.. Incredible flavor, bananas foster (nuts, banana, caramel, vanilla, mild smoke), maltiness, tropical fruits again, estery and phenolic with clove and pepper. Spot on...complex but still rather clean. Impressive.
