12oz bottle. Currently not available in the USA. Tasted at the Unibroue dinner meeting at the Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA. Several of the Unibroue guys in attendance to give us the low down on the beers.
If you know Unibroue beers the first thing you will notice is that this beer is by far the most easily distinguishable of all of the Unibroue range. No huge Belgian yeasty tastes that are SO patently Unibroue. Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic Unibroue Belgian yeast tastes, but many of their beers are difficult to tell apart.
The smell and the taste certainly does have the smoked, peat present, but I think it seems stronger than it actually is simply because this is such an unusual brew for them.
Golden pour with a high head but no huge lacing to match. Good carbonation and some fruit aroma. Nice bitterness mixed in with the sweeter sugar notes with serve to round this out nicely. A thinner beer than you may have come to expect from Unibroue but in some ways even more balanced.
Highly drinkable, really quite refreshing. Very nice.
