History

Inspired by a recipe our brewmaster Jerry Vietz created for his friends, La Résolution is a dark ale with a spicy character. With a 10% alcohol content, its spicy caramel aroma evolves on the palate into pleasant and complex notes reminiscent of gingerbread. Its perfect balance of spicy, caramel and roasted malt flavours is complemented by a pleasant roundness and persistent finish. A cold-weather brew that warms the heart.

Aging process

Potential

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.

Preservatives

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.

Preservation methods

Store bottles upright in a cool dark place at a stable temperature between 46ºF and 61ºF.
