COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1837 is a blond beer, slightly cloudy, refermented in the bottle and contains 7% alcohol. It is a great beer, relative to the abbey family of beers. It is brewed from a blend of Québec-grown raw wheat, lightly roasted barley and a hint of spices. It delivers a great sensation of freshness.

(Bottle: 341ml/capped) This is an exceptionally carbonated beer -- so fizzy in fact that it is eerily reminscent of Canada Dry gingerale. Pours a cloudy pale yellow similar to that of many hefeweizens, but this should not be confused with such a drink. The huge, bright white head never disapates while drinking and the laciing of the glass is extensive. Aroma wise its has several fruity elements including orange, apple, and pears plus a swab of corriander in the mix. Smells very similar to that of Hoegarden or Celis White, but lacks the real fruit punch that the later offers. The same holds true on taste. Its considerably more sharp with a slight bite to the palette making it a little less enjoyable that I would have hoped. Having said that, 1837 has a very intriguing balance of hops and malts that does reasonably well. In short, call this one a 50/50 blend consisting of Hoegarden and Affligem's Tripel.

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
Doré de ton laiton, mi-épaisse avec une couche de mousse mince mais durable. À peine trouble. Au nez, baies sauvages, canneberges, raisins, clou de girofle et épices. On décèle aussi des mûres. Sarrasin, agrumes, mûres, raisin et cassonade en bouche. Assez goûteuse, et presque désaltérante. La 1837 ne s’adresse pas à tous les palais, mais elle brille par son audace, son originalité, son caractère ; piquantes épices, fruits imposants mais pas agressifs, sucres bien dosés, elle clôt à merveille un copieux repas.

[bottle] Slight cardboard in the aroma, which is cereal grainy with light fruity accents and some yeastiness. Murky yellow-orange under a thin, white cover and ring. Sweet and sugary flavour with a spicy, yeasty finish. Refreshing Belgian dubbel-like plus aged barley wine. Light body, medium carbonation, clean tropical fruit finish.

Opaque gold bubbly head. Strong scent. Very unibroue smelling. Citrusy. Sweet mellow taste. Spice and yeast in the after-taste. Just a slight bit tangy. Very easy drinking.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
341ml bottle with 7% a/v, a gift from my brother. Hazy gold colour with white head, aroma is fruity and slightly hoppy, with some spice notes as well. Taste is very light and wheaty actually, very hard to beleive this is 7%! Palate is very clean and light, and overall a pretty good beer.

Here we got a decent strong blond beer that may rivals against alot of strong blond brewers. Confecting a good tasting blond is hard, but adding it strenght for a better flavor may be only done by a Master Brewer. For this recipe they got a Master Brewer.

It’s.... back! Purchased at BroueHaHa, in a Unibroue mix 12-pack (with Blanche, Blonde and Fin du Monde). Pours hazy blond, with picture-perfct head and rather good retention. Aroma is bread, fruity esters and spices. Perfectly balanced taste, with the yeast, spices, barley, wheat and gentle floral hops all having finding their way. Finish is smooth and crisp. Oily mouthfeel, medium-bodied beer. It probably won’t last forever, but Unibroue’s best is back! Think of it as an extremely well-made version of a very stong Witbier.

SlovakSniper (3105) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2011
(Vintage 2011) Hazy light golden. Foamy white head with excellent retention. Pretty nice lacing. Yeasty Unibroue aroma for sure. Yellow fruits, maybe some peaches, banana sweetness and apricots. Spicy twist, mainly coriander. Some honey flowers surrounded by wheat. Taste is sweet with a fair amount of spices and fruits. Body is medium, carbonation is good and texture is creamy. Sweet and fresh aftertaste. Overall, a classic Unibroue.
