COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On September 25, 1951, Hélène and René Léger opened their first rotisserie on St-Hubert Street in Montreal. This was the beginning of what was to become Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert Ltée.

It is because of these true pioneers and their innovative ideas, that the chain today is the pride of Quebec restaurant business. It is to mark their successful achievement that Unibroue has creates this unique beer: the St-Hubert.

Bottle. [thank you sooo much, frenchtickler]
Pops open with a nice plop, and a lot of white mist exits the opening. As I pour it, it looks quite pale and wit-like, but in the glass it gets a more hazy yellow character. Head looks like whipped egg-whites and stays for quite some time. On pouring, it’s about 1cm, but it settles at a few millimeters. Aroma is very nice. Quite fruity. Oranges, ginger, honey, yeast and coriander. Medium carbonation. Flavour is mildly sweet with a clear yeast presence. The coriander mixes with vanilla and a little peppery bitterness at the back. A very good brew, but the flavour is lacking compared to the aroma.

Bouteille. Arome malté, levure, épices. Couleur or-orangée, mince mousse persistente. Goût très épicé, alcoolisé, levure, finale en agrumes et sucres. Effervescence un peu trop forte, corps moyen à faible.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2007
Bottle: Poured a hazy deep beige color ale with a nice foamy head with great retention. Aroma of coriander is well balance with the typical Unibroue yeast and good Belgian malt. Taste is also quite heavy on the coriander with some great spices and yeasty finish. I know this is probably a mix between Blanche de Chambly and Fin du Monde but I thought the mix was particularly well done in this case.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2006
Drank in the St-Hubert glass (Stem Glass). Brown-amber clear poor, missing a little head. Aromas of citrus, smokey, corriander. Good lively carbonation with flavors of orange peelings, spices and towards the end you can taste a hint of caramel. Alcohol to the palate, missing a little body/texture. Definitely drinkable with barbequed chicken.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle, shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, biegaman, and GregClow, Harry’s bottle. I never thought I would get a chance to try this one, so big thanks to Harry for helping us try and complete our Unibroue ratings. Light hazy yellow, foamy slick white head. Decent soft floral aroma, light malt, yeast. Nice taste - yeast, light malt, slight lemon. Tangy hops at end. Pleasant easy to drink Belgian and very nice after the UMiele crap we sampled before. Certainly shared some in common with Blanche De Chambly but different enough.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, biegaman & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small lasting white head. Aroma of swet malt, citrus, Belgian yeast and spices. Flavour’s the same: sweet, citrusy, yeasty and spicy with a lightly bitter finish. Medium bodied. This is pretty good, especially after having the awful ’U Miel’.

GregClow (2813) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle shared with biegaman, blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Hazy golden-yellow with a good sized white head. Aroma - ahhh, there’s the Unibroue that I know and love - sweet malt, spicey yeast, faint citric notes. Flavour of lemon, yeast, peppery spice, and a slight boozy warmth to the finish. After all the shitty new beers Unibroue has come out with the last year or two, it’s nice to try one of the old ones in order to remind myself of the good ol’ days.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Shared with biegaman, blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, my bottle. Hazy pale gold, large fluffy white head. Sweet candy malt, tons of yeast, sweet soft spice, a little sourness as it warms. Taste - quite sweet - like the aroma, fresh honey added in the finish, slightly boozy. Creamy body, mild carbonation, sweet finish - decent.
