COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 100% barley malt beer is blended with roasted malts and hops to five it a spicy, crisp taste. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast enriched flavour. Not to be confused with the different Ambree served at the Cheval Blanc brewpub.

Formerly known as Cheval Blanc Ambrée and then as Spéciale Ambrée. Recently changed to RJ No.926.

341ml bottle as No.926 in 2010. Dry, with carmel sweetness and spiciness. Light bitterness. Good, but not the best of the RJ variety pack.

Originally rated November 2008. Thanks to Driss who gave me one of these. Had tried it a few times, but never reviewed. Pours a beige-orange colour that is cloudy. Small white head that does not leave much. Unibroue smelling Belgium white yeast. Pretty refreshing for a Belgian ale, with a crisp mouthfeel. The taste is good, but should be more powerful. Has the characteristic of a witbier, but with less citrus action. A nice attempt from RJ Brewers to make an ale like this, and try and get the mass market drinkers into better beers.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Cette bière s’appelle maintenant "No 926". Belle couleur opaque jaune/orangée, avec un col mousseux qui se maintient longtemps. Elle dégage des effluves de coriandre et d’agrumes. Son goût, plutôt intéressant, laisse pratiquement toute la place à son côté acidulé. Aucun arrière-goût. Bière somme toute agréable à boire.

GarnotingPete (740) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Bière sur lie couleur de miel, très trouble ne formant pas de col significatif. Des arômes à la "Unibroue" de fleurs, de pomme verte et de poussière. Un peu trop acide. Plutôt mince, très effervescente avec une longue fin surette. Semblable à la blonde de Chambly.

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 18, 2010
Foggy yellow with plenty of carbonation, small head on top. Fruity hops and grain aroma. Taste is grainy with a slightly plastic aftertaste. A bit too dry and it becomes cloying.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
Hey was labeled No. 926 by RJ Brewers. So fuck ’em. I liked the beer. Aroma kind of grainy-lagery and yeasty, taste is sweet w a dry finish. Fruit - blueberry and sweet apple, wheat spice and vanilla... some citrus and bubblegum. Kinda nice and Quebecky.

SlovakSniper (2810) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Le liquide est blond doré et est embrouillé par la lie. Le col mousseux est mince et fuyant. Effluves de levure, quelques pointes d’épices, du biscuit et des fruits tropicaux. Le goût est celui d’un malt doux, collé aux caractéristiques des arômes. En bouche, la texture du liquide est douce et très faiblement portée par les bulles. Arrière-goût légèrement acidulé. Aucune amertume.

duff_man (1) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2009 does not count
RJ. no. 926 in a pint. Thin, fizzy head. Musty, as well as other reviews noter nutmeg odour. Milky color. More carbonnated than I expected, but only subtly so. Nice clean finish on the tongue, yet full enough flavour. Nice lacing. Recommend.

No. 926. Pours deep gold into a shaker. Bright white micro head with excellent retention leaves sheet lacing. Coriander and clove aromas. Smooth and peppery with a slightly sweet yeast finish.
