With La Bolduc, Unibroue recreated an "Old Style" beer reminiscent of the 1950s. A natural and refreshing beer.

Pretty sweet. It tastes like they brewed it with champagne yeasts. Extremely bubbly, and I’m sure it ruined some of the flavor. Besides that, it seemed decidedly belgian in feel. Maybe it’s just me, but this was a reach to be an english pale ale. Lose the carbonation, it almost tasted artificial.

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.

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.
