Description: This is the latest special release by Unibroue, a strong ale which pays homage to the Seigneuriale system and the role it played in the settlement of “New France”. Like all Unibroue’s products, it is brewed in the Belgian-style and refermented in the bottle with active yeast cultures.
Tasting Notes: This brew was best described as a stronger version of their Blanche de Chambly, a Belgian-style wheat. Much like the Blanche, it has some strong wheat malts, a yeasty backbone, and some coriander and orange zest. However, this one adds to that with some notes of pineapple in the nose and stronger, slightly sweeter malts.
Appearance: Deep orange, cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Wheat malt, yeast, pineapple, hint of coriander spice
Taste: Crisp malt, tang, yeast, caramelized sugar, mild orange zest and spicy finish
Aftertaste: Lingering malt flavor, yeast bitterness
