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

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere, Lausanne] A light orange beer with a small head. The aroma is slight with notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, oranges, and coriander. Quite unusual for a pilsener.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Cool bottle. Pours a pretty gold color with big, white, quickly dissapating head. A malty, somewhat grainy clean lager aroma. Flavor is very smooth, with just enough hops to balance, finshies dry with a slight kiss of hops. Probably the besy canadian Pilsner I have tried, although there is not much competition. I liked it better than U2.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2004
Deep gold colour with a frothy white head. Grainy, fruity, and cidery aroma. Grainy and cidery flavours with a lightly fruity bitter finish. Fizzy and wet mouthfeel, medium bodied.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottle: Poured a dark yellow beer with a huge bubbly head that disappeared a bit too quickly for my liking. Aroma is a mix of usual Unibroue malt and not much else. Taste is again characterized by Unibroue usual malt with a nice little touch of hops. Better then some other pils out there but nothing too good for a brewery who can do a whole lot better.

Pours a clear straw colour with a big bubbly head. Malt and floral nose with a bit of grass thrown in. Grain flavour with a little bit of hops.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours clear golden, with lots of carb and a little sudsy head. Soft malt and hop nose with some roasted nut, yeast, and charcoal aromas. I would have expected to find more hops, but they are balanced with the malts as far as flavour is concerned. Grainy, mild lemon and unibroue yeast. Caramel and salt in the medium dry finish. I don’t think Unibroue was trying to make anything remarkable here.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Pours a clear blonde with a medium off white head. I smell corn on the cob, not a good 1st impression. Hmmm tastes like corn on the cob also. A little hop to finish, unfortunately tastes like a lot of macro brews. This is the 1st unibroue beer that does not impress me (except for the bottle).

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 Bottle. Aroma is light, grainy, grassy, and of corn. Pour is a tranparent blonde with a light off-white head. Not much going on here, lots of corn flavors with a little hop kick at the end. Not much better than your typical macro. I thought this was going to be an Old Ale, not a Pilsener. Cool bottle, too bad the beer is poop. This beer will not be missed when Sleeman cleans house...or will they keep it around because it appeals to the masses? (3/4/4/3/8)-----& at the depanneur down the street from DDC. Aroma is very metallic with some grassy hops and sweet, sugary malts. OK. Transparent golden body with a small white head. Minimal lacing. Starts a little metallic before it becomes a bit doughy in the middle. Finishes with a little astringency and grassy hop bitterness. Decent.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Bottle pours translucent straw, HUGE puffy white head, good lacing, and with a decent amount of carbonation.   Sweet malts on the nose, slightly corny too.   Up front I get a lovely sweet malty taste that lasts throughout.   Nice body too.   Finishes even sweeter, with a nice malt profile.   This one was quite enjoyable!   Thanks goes out to radiomgb for the trade!

This beer has grown on me to where I look forward to popping one to complement and give appetite to an ordinary meal. Pleasant pale gold colour and mild form. A light sweetness like honeydew that lingers.
