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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
Slightly hazy yellow colour with a lively, mostly lasting, creamy, and rocky white head. Fruity and lightly yeasty aroma. Fruity and spicy flavours, plus a light bitterness and yeastiness. Refreshing medium body.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
Seems to be still readily available at Montreal area St. Hubert restaurants. Fruity, sweet, very typical Unibroue yeasty, citrus-lemon aroma with delicate coriander spicing. Opaque straw colour with decent white head that recedes to ring. Orange, apple, pear, lemon, slightly peppery, coriander flavours. A touch of anis in the end. Wheaty smooth mouthfeel with gently prickling carbonation on the tongue. Bottle (St. Hubert Restaurant at Windsor Station, Montreal).

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Hazy pils appearance with a sticky thin white head, foamy and rocky. Aroma is yeasty with lemonspice fruitiness and obvious coriander character. It’s hard to point out more fruits, but I know they’re there, pineapple maybe. Very coriander oriented palate. A bit watery palate, but at the same time moderately creamy and with moderately high carbonation. A stranger strong witbier with pils malt and carbonation.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
341ml bottle. A slightly hazy, yellow-coloured ale that sits under a large, foamy, white head. Lemon and green apple notes are present in the moderate aroma, along with a herbal and grassy hop character. Light-to-medium body with a clean, crisp mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation that kicks at the finish to give a briefly tingly sensation on the palate. The flavour profile is nicely complex: lightly citric and sour green apple tastes, a clean and biscuity malt character, and a dry and herbal hoppiness that carries through the finish. Matches well with a meal of rotisserie chicken (and it’s worth noting that it was served at a correct temperature with a proper tulip glass). A well-made and enjoyable beer that didn’t disappoint.

Eructoblaster (3059) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2004
Rich golden cloudy body with a thick white foamy head that lasts until the end. Very pleasnt yeasty, fruity (citrus) and spicy aroma. Taste is conform to the aroma, and the bittersweet final is honest without being extraordinary. That beer alone gives me a good reason to eat at St-Hubert.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2003
Another trememendous offering from Unibroue. Extremely well balanced, and lies somewhere between a big beer and a possible session beer. In my opinion it is a slightly lighter version of eau benite.

radiomgb (2263) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2003 Murky golden colour. Aroma of yeast, and fruit. Flavour is sour, yeasty, spicy, peppery. Finishes spritzy.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 21, 2003
341 ml bottle. Huge lasting head, cloudy and slightly duller in appearance than 1837 which I just had; mild indistinct peachy aroma. Flavor seems pretty mild also, less wheaty than the aforementioned ale but without a lot of compensating flavor otherwise. Yeasty, slightly lemony; very drinkable and nice but really nothing special and a disappointment from this world-class brewer.
