Does anyone else find that although all of their beers are a different style they still all taste very similiar? I've attributed it to the yeast. I don't know what they use but I wouldnt be surprised if someone told me it was the same yeast in all their beers.

It is the same yeast most likely, there's a wyeast strain that is the Unibroue strain.

I was disappointed by Trois Pistoles. Wasn't bad, but wasn't as good as their others. I love La Fin Du Monde, and I love Maudite. Don De Dieu is tasty (and I thought it was very similar to La Fin Du Monde). Stay away from the Ephemere Apple though. The only Unibroue beer I flat out disliked.

I got a sampler pack a few years ago and noticed the same thing. Really good, but very similar

You know, I never bothered to think of what the name translated to. That's not a bad idea!
