Definitely a session beer. I was beginning to despair that Unibroue would have a proletarian beer suitable for prolonged and frequent drinking, but this subtly flavourful, lager-bodied beer with a nice malt twinge in the aftertaste fits the bill perfectly.

Beautiful simple ale by unibroue standards. Still has unibroue’s signature yeast contributed flavor. Good session ale.

Good taste, cool bottle, nice copper color. Decent head. Not the best Unibroue has to offer at all, but highly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An unusual one for Unibroue, to be sure. Very clear golden, which I did not expect. Bright white head like a wheat, which I did not expect. Then, a sort-of-sweet, slightly hoppy/bitter English Pale built upon a more Belgian yeast strain. Goes down very well. Not a world-beater by any stretch, but a session ale. The sum is more than the parts in this one.

I expected more out of the Chode-like bottle from Unibroue. I’ll cut to the chase in spanish... No soy un gran afficianado de La Bolduc

nothing like a unibroue i’d had before. butterscotch sweet aroma. gold and transparent. sweet finish, its not impressive. its like macro swill made slightly better.

I was really excited about trying this one, and I saved it to be my last of my Unibroue’s to try from my trip to Quebec. Although as I poured this one I was surprised to find a pilsner appearance being that I was expecting something darker and more complex. Slight hops in aroma, malt in the palate, and there is a thin middle. A strange brew, for a beer with noticable hops, the malt is almost overpowering. Eh!?

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2009 A beer to tease the ‘Traditional Quebecers’…Shy hops, iron, pepper and honeyed cereals in an honest version of a commercial beer…A best-seller that gives Unibroue the funds to brew the eclectic and ingenious Terrible, Trois-Pistoles, Maudite, Fringante, etc…

I really enjoyed this one. Nice copper colour. Has a fine head to it with some orange flavours to it.

The beer I buy to drink when I eat, not for a degustation. Very good.
