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.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2001
Cloudy light beige; lemony aroma with some pale malts; has a wit-like malt profile full of biscuits and quenching wheatiness, along with lemony notes and a fluffy, whipped cream texture. A tasty, complex ale. Just be thankful you don’t have to go to the deplorable St-Hubert Chicken restaurants to get it.

Similar in qualities to Fin Du Monde and Don De Dieu only I think less peppery and more mild. Makes it quite easy to drink, a nice tasty brew.

Cloudy straw yellow color. A huge white head that looks like beaten egg whites. Peppery lemon aroma. lemon and wheat notes. Dry finish. Nicely done.

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.

DYCSoccer17 (3321) - 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!

Le seul temps que je boirais autre chose que celle-là s’il y a quelque chose que j’aime mieux. Si non c’est elle. Ce n’est pas comme s’il n’y a pas beaucoup de St-Hubert au Québec.

341 bottle. Cloudy blond color. Thick foamy head. Yeasty and flower aroma. The taste is similiar to the Fin du Monde but lighter. I was suprised of this one, really good. It’s a shame that we cannot get it anywhere else but the restaurant. It really worth it to stop at the restaurant and eat the cheapest thing on the menu to be able to try the beer !!!

I don’t know about the St-Hubert Restaurant chain being deplorable (the alternative is Swiss Chalet - yuck!) as stated below but its an honour for this rotisserie chain to have such a sought after and reputible brewer providing them with a special beer. Great big white head and cloudy yellow body. If a beer could ever make a restaurant...

radiomgb (2249) - 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.

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.
