RD400F (205) - 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!

Hazy golden color with a medium white head. very high carbonation in this one. floral and lemony aromas followed with the typical Belgian yeast. taste is dough and sweet floral notes and then comes a malty/yeasty/hoppy delicate finale.it really has a unique flavor among unibroue’s beer, reminds me a bit of La Gaillarde...

MunBro (537) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Aroma at uncorking was fresh baked bread and yeast. After pouring the yeast and spice aromas were more present, likely from the sediment. Flavour is very similar to Unibroue’s Tripel, lots of yeast and spices, but more mild and less hazy due to having almost 1/2 the abv %.

Bière jaune orangée, totalement voilée comme par un brouillard en son sein, très effervescente, surmontée d’un col blanc léger, plutôt pétillant, qui se réduit assez rapidement pour ne laisser qu’une trace blanchâtre à la surface du liquide. Arômes de pain frais et de levure belge (typiquement Unibroue!), avec un sucré qui rappelle un peu le miel ou le sucre d’orge, et un fruité qui fait très «fruits jaune» (banane, pêche, poire…). C’est agréable comme nez, belle intensité, complexité un peu faible cependant. En bouche, le liquide est très pétillant, tout en présentant une onctuosité tout de même intéressante au palais. Au goût, pain frais et pâtisserie, avec une entrée de bouche présentant un sucré difficile à décrire, c’est sucré tout simplement. On retrouve également un peu les fruits jaunes en bouche, et la finale apporte un houblon au profil floral et fruité, saveur d’orange et de citron, qui amène une belle petite acidité et une amertume légère mais bien sentie. Bon goût, intensité adéquate, complexité plutôt faible, cette bière est légère, très accessible, du bon temps sur une terrasse ensoleillée. Une bien bonne bière, pas nécessairement très satisfaisante sur le plan de la dégustation cependant…

*Blonde De Chambly* Had many other beers from this brewery but had never heard of this one before so had to buy it. Very clear gold pour with a head that barely lasted 5 long enough for me to start writing this. Grassy hoppy nose. Very strong distinct taste. Lots of hops. That distinct Unibrou taste that is in all thier beers. Chive and cloves in the finish. Sweet before that. Very carbonated a touch fizzy on the tongue. Okay. Goes really well with the Chechil.

Bottle. Unibroue seems pretty solid for the most part. This beer keeps thats up. A nice golden colour with a massive head. It smells of citrus and herbs, it also taste very much the same. A nice light body and mouth feel it is very inoffensive and a easy drinker. The giant bottles are perfect for sitting on your veranda.
