Unibroue Blanche de Chambly


Type: belgian white ale
Origin: Chambly, Quebec, Canada
Price: $7.99 for variety 4 pack(12 oz)
Website

On the Unibroue website, they actually suggest drinking this beer out of a champagne flute. I am really disappointed I didn't read the website before drinking it because I fucking love champagne. It's always a celebration with me. I picked up the variety 4 pack at Trader Joe's, and I thought it was actually from Belgium. Canada has a fine brewing tradition, so I wasn't too disappointed to find out this was from America's Denmark. The Blanche de Chambly is one of the first beers that Unibroue started producing, and after consuming the rest of the beers, is probably the best. It has a nice unfiltered yellow color and employs bottle re-fermentation. Luckily I have had no bad luck with bottle conditioning like Andy. It smells like lemon wheat and is fairly sour in the front of the mouth. The mouthfeel is like a crisp Labatt Blue Lime: light.

  2. Could you please post a score of 0 - 10 (up to two decimal places). I am making a beer journal and would appreciate your score. Thank you

  3. we don't do a score system because everything is very subjective between different reviewers (it also forces you to read the whole review ;) ). If I had to give a rating to Unibroue as a whole, it would be in the 6-7 range. It has been almost a year since I have had this beer.

  4. Brats, I actually would rank this 6.23, but I don't think two decimal places is precise enough. I really want to give it a 6.29999 but that would be just plain silly!
