Brewed since 1997
Origin: Chambly, Quebec
Midway between a Belgian blonde and a triple, its pale sweet malt notes never fail to charm the palate.
Brewed for the first time in the summer of 1996, its name was inspired by a nun who, after tasting a beer for the first time, said it tasted better than Holy Water (Eau Bénite in French). Amen
A closer look at the label reveals how the devil fooled us! He’s dressed up like an angel: curly wig, halo put together with a metal wire, stripped wings held up with suspenders…do you really think the stoup is filled with holy water?
Why the devil are you dressed as an angel in a stoup filled with divine liquid? Seeing how pleased you look as a converted devil, I want to dive into it myself.
Fragrance of honey, spice, cereal, sourdough bread, brown sugar and alcohol.
Flavours of yeast, cereals, spice, sugar and alcohol, with a slighly bitter finish.
Like good wine, Unibroue’s fine beers have flavors that develop with age. Over time they become smoother, sometimes revealing notes of honey and candied fruit and developing a more assertive and lasting flavor. This phenomenon is known as “maderization” and is similar to the aging process of dessert wines like port.
Oxygen is the mortal enemy of beer because oxidation creates a stale, flat flavor. The yeast added to the bottle of Unibroue products triggers natural fermentation, consuming excess oxygen and preventing the beer’s CO2 from oxidizing. This enhances the beer’s aging potential. The high alcohol content of certain Unibroue products also lends itself well to aging by acting as a natural preservative.
