8% ABV Strong amber-red ale
Unibroue - Chambly, Quebec
Deep amber-orange colour, clear, with lots of tiny bubbles rising into a dense1/4” layer of creamy beige foam. Really holds that head all the way down! Not much lacing on the glass, though. Aromas of yeast, candied fruit, alcohol & cloves. Creamy smooth & velvety texture. Rich & tongue-coating. Yeasty up front, with some clovey spice followed by caramel malt with a sourish tang and hints of candied fruit. Complex & flavorful brew. Carries its alcohol quite well – no noticeable burn. Dangerously drinkable! Like a really big dunkelweizen in many ways.
Don’t serve too cold - this is a complex & tasty brew. Went nicely with BBQ chicken, baked beans, & cucumber salad.
