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.

A lovely tawny, hazy concoction sampled with a crowd prior to the insanity of the Friday night RBSG tasting in Montreal. The Unibroue yeast tells you immediately who brews this one, but hey, I like the Unibroue yeast. Citrus alongside some wheat and spice and a bit of sweetness. Refreshing carbonated lemony mouthfeel with a nice creamy lingering finish. Solid.

bottle before the RBSG. Very hazy blonde color, full white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity esters- pear and banana, a bit of clove and wheat. Fuller flavor, yeasty again witrh notes of apple and banana. Sits on the palate nicely, smooth, creamy. A typical Unibroue beer but when has that ever been a bad thing?

Crockett (1006) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours light hazy gold with a medium sized small bead white head. Really spritzy mouthfeel. Aroma is mainly yeast, wheat, and citric fruit. Familiar territory in the range in between Blanche de Chambley and Don de Dieu. Orange and apple with pepper. A bit metallic. Surprisingly good.

Radek Kliber (6378) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Slightly cloudy with neat large puffy white head. Aroma was mild sweet honey with wheat accents. Clean and fresh. Medium bodied, sticky yeast character. Refreshing, good served with putine.

bottle. Tried this at the St-Hubert restaurant. Bright golden-white coloured hazy body. Fluffy white head. Apple, pear, cereal, mild tartness, and lots of yeast in the aroma. Body is yeasty (Would Unibroue have it any other way?) and mild fruit flavours. Light tart finish. A very nice flavourful quaff.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Big yeast, citrus aroma, hazy golden, pours a large white head, leaves some nice lace. Full malt flavour, with bready notes and some grapefruit too. Very well balanced, pleasing mouthfeel. Very good example as per usual for this brewery.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Appealing aroma of yeast, fruits and spices. Very good flavor of yeast, fruits and spices, it feels very sharp and crisp. The body is light to medium, the texture is creamy and the carbonation is soft.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle sampled at Windsor Station restaurant. itrusy aroma--almost reminiscent of an IPA. Yummy mandarin oranges are present with some banana yeast flavors in there as well. The most citrus of all Unibroue beers I’ve had to date. Mildly hazy pale straw color with a white head. Creamy citrusy start with orange peels and bananas present. Finishes creamy and very very smooth. This is very aromatic and floral. Nice beer...if Unibroue makes a session, this is it!

Had this at St-Hubert, didn’t have any food to go along with it, unfortunately. Opaque and yellow-ish, with microbubbly head that died down into a thick lace, reminded me of a saison. Smell: Spicy, some mustard seed, citrus fresh and surprisingly not very yeasty. Taste: Corainder and other spices, lively carbonation yet creamy smooth...The yeast presence is there, but plays more of a secondary role, a rarity with this brewery. I enjoyed it very much. Apparently, you can have some delivered to your door when you order some chicken...sweet!
