COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mild and refreshing Blonde de Chambly has a floral nose and a light citrus bouquet. With its foamy white head and lively effervescence, it is an ideal partner for an unforgettable sensory experience

pours a cloudy yellow-light orange. relatively thin head. aromas of melon, banana and spice. lots of fruity Belgian yeast, yet an unexpected bitterness in the finish. very refreshing beer and typical of Unibroue. similar, but probably not as flavourful as their Blanche de Chambly.

Pours an average frothy head and has a cloudy orange/amber appearance. Fairly weak lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast, citrus hops, oranges, malts. Flavours are also of yeast, orange peel, coriander, mild spices and hints of cinnamon. Has a mild warming sensation and a drying mouthfeel. Long finish. A really good, cheap Unibroue beer that’s quite enjoyable.

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
Aroma is fairly light, with almost an earthiness to it, but quite mildly so. Then I start to pick up the spice in there, bit more clove and nutmeg as it warms. Poured into a Chimay glass, the beer is very efferfes... effervesc.. bubbly. A very small head dissipated quickly and there’s nothing to lace at all. Taste is really good. Very refreshing, good sweetness mixed with bitterness. Mouthfeel is a fun bubbliness, it almost feels overly light but then that Belgian aftertaste comes through and rounds it out with a decent long aftertaste. Some say that Unibroue beers all taste the same, but if they taste like this, who’s complaining?

Light golden with a smoggy haze. The carb bubbles are commuting busily. Smells sweet with hints of fruit. Sweet and sour on the tongue, very unique. Finishes with sweet ripened pear notes. The quench wench on the front served me well. Its a nice blonde ale for sure. Thanks Lagerboy

Une mousse qui se résorbe lentement en un mince voile au-dessus d’un liquide blond légèrement trouble, s’agrémentant d’une mince dentelle. Une levure épicée, de purée de banane, qui se mêle à du zeste d’orange s’arriment vers les narines lorsqu’on la hume. Une texture veloutée, un goût fruité, où la levure est omniprésente en bouche. Des pointes légèrement acidulées lui confèrent sa parenté avec la famille Unibroue, ce qui est appréciable.(Embout. Mai12)(538-200213)

VincentDamon (325) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Belle couleur dorée. Liquide semi-voilé et très effervescent. Mousse blanche généreuse. Servie dans un verre tulipe. Nez floral d’agrumes, de citron, de levure, et de miel. En bouche, c’est très rafraîchissant. Des notes de zeste de citron sont perceptibles. Réminiscence de la Blanche de Chambly, il me semble. C’est toutefois plus frais, il y a plus de bulles. Des notes vineuses rappellent le chardonnay, et le doux mélange de ces flaveurs avec les agrumes est plutôt agréable. Belle petite bière estivale. Cheers!

Leglome (11) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
Bouteil 341 ml. Au nez, un parfum complexe de levure immédiatement remplacé par des aromes d’agrumes: orange, zest, citron. Semblable en bouche, les arômes sont intenses et rafraichissants, attaque citronnée,finale d’épice et impression de légerte acidité digne des agrumes. Bière par exellence pour une expérience différente quand vient le temps de combler sa soif durant les journée chaudes et ensoleillées, ou pour avoir une bière complexe sans être trop corriace avec un bon poulet sur le grill.

Bottle. Hazy golden with a lively creamy white head. Zesty fresh pear and spices (that lovely Unibroue signature yeast), lightly tart, very refreshing! This is officially my beer of summer for 2013. I’m loading my fridge with this and everyone who comes through my door will get one!
