RD400F (176) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Aroma: Peaches and cream, grapefruit, citrusy, coriander, a slight boozeyness and the signature Unibroue yeast. For a 5% beer this is quite aromatic and I’ve had higher ABV beers do much worse than this. Appearance: Cloudy gold color with a puffy, white head that fades to a bit of lacing. Taste: A bit on the watery side but it’s quite citrusy and the hop flavour comes out quite well. Slight caramel hints. Palate: On the thin side but it’s quite nice with nothing offensive or offputting. Sweet with a bitter then sour finish. Overall: Clean and refreshing and has quite the character. Very enjoyable and I thought I’d have a hard time replacing Hoegaarden for a cheap and refreshing beer. They’ve met their match!

Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head and no lace. Tastes of wheat and mild hops, overall a really tasty beer.

When I first started this bottle I wouldn’t have expected to give it a 3.6 but the Blonde really grew on me. I’ve had the Raftman and Ephemere so this seemed to be just the "straightforward " version of those. In other words, it’s naked Unibroue, spreadlegged on the bed, for all the world to see. I wouldn’t speak that way of other brewers but as the most famous high quality Canadian brewer, they get placed under the microscope.

Blonde coloured (!) with a whitish head, the yeast gives it fantastic fruit and spice characters... Unibroue always seem a little forboding, with extra strong esters and phenols, but after the first sip or two you’re glad you started. A bit more acidic than I’d expected. Hm I think I’ll have one now.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
pours almost clear bright golden with a nice foamy white head, good retention. wheat, typical unibroue yeast, zesty lemon, peppery, hint of sweet malts and wheat acidity. lively, medium body, balanced by a nice grassy-citrusy finish. quenching and good.

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Poured out a cloudy yellow gold brew with a frothy white cap that retains well. Typical uni yeast spice nose but this time there is much more sweet lemon and citrus tossed in with success. Flowery as well. So much lemon! Dry grass swaying in the wind. The taste is very similar with less lemon and more pepper but even the pepper is not big. The malts are pretty big though. Drying all the way, the pepper is stronger early but thankfully gives way to gentle malts all the while battling the fringes of bitterness. Wheaty in a different way. Borderline foamy feel. For me this is more similar to a spicy hoegaarden. Aproximately. Shut up.

341ml bottle. Slightly hazy, copper-gold with foamy brownish-yellow head. The yeast aroma you expect from this brewer -- also bready/biscuity with some lemon, orange zest and spices.Not too sweet, maltier than most other Unibroue offerings, has a dry champagne-like finish. Light-bodied, medium carbonation. Smooth, maybe a bit boring.
