Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec, Canada
5.5% ABV, beer brewed from lightly smoked whisky malt
Clear, bright pale amber hue with a creamy, pale beige head. Aroma is that Unibroue house yeast, with notes of clove, coriander, and faint vanilla & banana. Very spritzy on the tongue – generous, fine carbonation keeps the body on the lighter side of medium. Honeyed caramel with a tangy quality, followed by notes of clove over light coriander & banana-vanilla. I get the slightest whisper of smoke in the finish, with a gentle bitterness and a return of the tangy honey note.I think I expected a bit more smokiness, but this is very drinkable, thirst-quenching, and more-ish. Very pleasant, quaffable beer.
