RD400F (219) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - 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!

Unibroue is basically a Belgian stronghold in Canada. All of the beers I have had from them are delicious and hearkens back to my time spent in Brussels. This pale straw coloured beaut proffers up titillating notes of fresh orange, lemon zest, coriander, light crushed pepper, mild basement funk and a hint of cereal. If refreshing thirst destruction if what you crave than look no further, B de C holds it in spades. Shades of background tartness and spices keep this intriguing, well worth the price of admission.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden-orange in color, topped by a small, white head. The aroma is on the fruity side, almost like canned tropical fruits, with some sugary notes. It’s medium bodied and semi-dry, with a smooth carbonation. Fruity, sugary flavor with a decent bitterness and a grassy, piney hop touch. Lasting fruity-sugary finish. Sure drinkable and all that, but rather boring, and far from the best from this brewery. 150612

mathieuc (2276) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Leftovers from a recipe I’m cooking up for tomorrow. Pours a moderately hazy golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of herbs and grass, pils and fruits. Taste is pretty dry and gently bitter. Flavors include cereals, fruits and some pepper. Body is light and carbonation high. Overall a fine belgian ale but not even close to the best in class.

Franckg (523) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2015
Robe blonde bien claire surmonté d’un fin col de mousse. Arômes de levures, épices douces, houblons floraux, banane et sucre à glacer. En bouche, goût d’épices (sauge, muscade), pétales de fleurs, melon d’eau, abricot, banane. Texture très douce, finale brève mais florale. Un peu sucré mais le tout reste soyeux et léger. Une excellente ipa belge.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Single 341 moo bottle from Liquor Depot, served in a nonic pint. Pours a hazy, almost opaque orange-yellow with a crackling, pearly, white cap that leave only a few dots of lace. Aroma is fresh, sweet floral and fruity citrus hops with strong hints of banana on a light base of wheaty malt. Flavor is hops, malt, and banana in a three-way dance of sorts. The body is interesting, being slightly thick and rather creamy, and finishes well, save for an odd heat note down the esophagus. I suppose if this has banana esters, there’s got to be some level of clove spice as well. A refreshing, satisfying golden ale, and one of my favorite Unibroue offerings to date.

lello4ever (268) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Si tratta di una tipica blonde francese-belga, dal colore paglierino opaco e con una sottile schiuma, piuttosto frizzante. Equilibrata nel sapore, lievito con punte di agrumi e un sentore amaro appena percepibile alla fine L’ho trovata un po’ troppo acquosa, seppur buona nel complesso, non mi ha convinto troppo.
