Unibroue Trois Pistoles
A dark brown Belgian ale with a thick head that clings to the glass as you drink it. It smells fruity and tastes a little bitter with a lot of flavors coming at you and has a bit of a hoppy finish. It does feel good in your mouth though. It definitely is a force of a beer at 9% and is very complex – may be too complex for my taste. May be one to try again in a few months. It’s brewed by Unibroue, the same company who blessed us with Maudite. To me it was not as good as the Maudite, but that’s not to say it was a bad beer. If you can find it at World Market it is worth a try.
Interestingly, I looked it up at ratebeer.com, where it rates in the 99th percentile with a score of 4.02/5.00 (a very high rating). Some of the reviews cite a plum and raisin flavor, which may be why I didn’t like it as much as the Maudite (I’m not yet able to discern individual flavors like that but I know those are two fruits I don’t seek out often).
Unibroue Trois Pistoles Rating: 6 out of 10 (?)
