Nice golden straw color with a murkish body and deep glow. Firm and solid capping of whitish frothy foam stands strong and long. Minimal spots and few thick strings of lacing emerge across the glass as its consumed.

Aroma is slightly herbal with a peppery spice and some undertones of sweet bubble gum esters to it. The bubble gummy fruityness it carries is kinda refreshing with a paled lemon/melon sugar candy goodness when wiffed in at length.

Taste is a steady pace of sweet candish bready malten goodness and a good portion of yeastified grabbing body to its pace. Kinda appley with a melon twist and spritzed with lemon. Little bits of grassy hops and peppery spice add a nice touch as it goes along the finishing parts.

Feel is a bit fuzzy and boldly medium with a nice core of bready malt sweetness and tone to keep it balanced. Could be beefier and hold its tone a bit longer, gut its pretty solid and evidently crafted well. Which coming from Unibroue is no surprise. But it would be nice to be surprised every once in a while from them as this seems far too much like par for the course of just about everything else they create. Yet, not disappointed, as what's par for their course is usually pretty top notched as solid in my book.

A - Pour produces a fizzy white head that is about one inch tall. Sort of drab white in color, sort of milky colored I guess. Body is a very light golden color. There are shit-tons of teeny tiny bubbles rising to the surface in organized streams. Nice looking brew.

S - Nice yeastiness at the front, along with the spice notes that likely are coming from the yeast used. Black pepper and coriander. Green leafy hoppiness here.

T - Spice notes come on right away with coriander and black pepper lighter and following coriander in. Lots of pale malt sweetness. Touch sugary. Biscuity. Light green hoppiness comes in, very fresh and light across the palate with no bitterness to speak of. Finish is clean, leaving no flavor on the tongue other than a very light sweetness.

M - Medium bodied. Highly carbonated, but somehow these tiny bubbles are very soft.

Overall - Sort of ho hum in the way that Unibroue sometimes can be. Their beers are good, but many seem very similar to one another. Really, how many Belgian Strong Pale Ales can you make? Worth a shot none the less.

Price: $9.99 Served In: Wine Glass
