COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Josh’s translation of the French description: La Fringante is a deluxe, triple-fermented beer born of a unique strain of yeast which gives it an unexpected finesse. A champagne-like effervescence, its vigourous presence in the mouth underlines its markedly strong personality of balanced flavours of spices, malt and hops.

maley1 (738) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Hazy amber orange pour with large off white head. Aroma of the signature unibroue yeast, spices, caramel, malts and cinnamon. Taste of yeast, malts, caramel, pepper, slightly fruity. Very similar to la fin du monde except slightly sweeter and a peppery dry finish and fruitier in the middle. Excellent beer!

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Hazy light golden, big head. Nose is that Unibroue yeast, spicy and quite sweet, Taste is pepper spice, malt sweetness, lots of esters. Sharper than FdM, and largely the same but its heaviness weighs it down comparatively, not as much orange. Still though it’s a rocking tripel.

Excellent Tripel. This beer is very close to La Fin du Monde in every way, except La Fringante pushes all the boundaries in terms of flavour, aroma and mouthfeel. This beer is a little more alcoholic, has more body, more sweetness, more flavours and stronger aroma than La Fin du Monde. Love it.

Bouteille 341 ml. Achetée chez Peluso (Montréal). Servie dans un verre tulipe. Robe dorée, surmontée d’un épais col blanc. Arôme: bananes, pelure d’orange, malt, levures belges (typique d’Unibroue - on les sent de plus en plus à mesure que la bière se réchauffe). En bouche,malt, alcool, sucre candi, levures et épices. On distingue aisément la signature Unibroue, quoiqu’avec une compléxité plus grande qui est bienvenue par ailleurs. Bonne effervescence en bouche. Un peu trop lourde, même pour une trippel. En plein sur le style.

Why do I not ALWAYS stock Unibroue beer? I love this stuff dammit. Cloudy apricot stuff with the typical huge ass bright white noggin. Ha! This shit is 10%! Score! Dry, light pepper, lemon, yeasty goodness, almost Brett feel on the nose as it warms, fresh dough. I think the lemon is gone and replaced by these things on deep, confined snorts: ginger, herbal, banana (very faint). This has incredible depth in aroma. Great flavour and lots of it. Typical year bite, dryness and light pepper, twigs, ginger or cinnamon - either way that side of it has a killer bite. Stiff citrus acidy thing, peachy lemon, some herb, the Brett is back, drank it way to fucking fast and now things are twisting counter clockwise. Feels as it should. Excellent beer. Last beer out of the "I am broke forever Pity Pack" from Brad. Thanks shitdick.

Belle couleur dorée, voilée, surhaussée d’une mousse généreuse. Cette triple à 10% d’alcool que nous offre temporairement Unibroue recèle un bouquet fruité et malté où l’on retrouve des notes d’épices, de levure, de banane mûre et de pain. Somme toute, c’est un nez assez standard à la "Unibroue". En bouche, c’est une explosion de sucre et de levure. Petites notes de fruits séchés et de bananes encore une fois qui se laissent courtiser par des flaveurs d’épices. Cette bière rappelle un peu la Fin du monde... C’est bien là un défaut d’Unibroue : ils font des produits excellents, mais les levures distinctives qu’ils utilisent pour les brasser font en sorte qu’il y a des similitudes agaçantes entre leurs bières ; par exemple, je me verrais mal ouvrir une Don de Dieu après avoir bu cette Fringante, ni l’inverse d’ailleurs. Cela dit, cette bière est une bonne triple qui ne réinvente toutefois pas le style et qui ressemble peut-être un peu trop à ses soeurs. C’est quand même à déguster : chaleureux et sucré. C’est ce qu’on attend d’une triple! Cheers!

Habanero (2490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
Bottled. Pours clear golden with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, yeast, peach and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that end up dry with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and average to soft CO2. Nice indeed. ★★★★

dandeman (491) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Aroma is banana and spices, especially cinnamon and clove with a bit of pepper and nutmeg. Relatively complex aroma, average strength. Appearance: Hazy straw, with nice thick and sparkling head lasting quite long. Not a lot of lacing. Taste: Attack is sparkling and very spicy. We find notes of banana, cinnamon, clove, orange and nutmeg. Typical Abbey style, very spicy. So sparkling that it almost numb the mouth. Spices are all over and tingling the tongue. Malt is also giving a good base with notes of caramel and vanilla. A tasty beer with a good flavor complexity.
