Unibroue Don de Dieu

Another one from the Sommelier collection, one each of 6 12-ounce bottles from Unibroue. About $2 a piece, not a bad deal at all. With this one I'm again reaching back to notes from December of 2003, a beer that today I'd categorize as an Imperial Wit...maybe. Or, something. But not quite...well, it is what it is. Enjoy these notes....

Unibroue Don de Dieu (gift of god), wheat beer with spices and yeast, 9% ABV.

Murky orange in color, with an impressive, big, thick, chunky whitecap of a head.

 Notes of orange, other citrus, spices...that's all, but in this case, it's just right.

Taste is light, sweet, smooth, and luscious. Spicy, but uncomplicated. Well-carbonated, well-balanced, very light in body, soul, spirit. Full and substantial, with rich, yeasty flavor.

 Perfect with food,either a banquet or a picnic. A lot like a witbier, but with more body, flavor, and punch.
