This beer was initially brewed by the now defunct Seigneuriale brewery in Boucherville. Unibroue decided to revive it in 2012, in honour of its name and unique recipe.
The "Régime Seigneurial" flourished in New France until the mid-nineteenth century. In 1667, Pierre Boucher, Sieur de Grosbois, established a seigneurie in Boucherville on the South Shore of Montreal. The last three seigneurs resided in the sumptuous François Pierre Boucher manor of Boucherville, which was built in the 1750s and declared a historical monument in 1974. This ale is dedicated to these ancestral roots.
A hint of orange peel and spices, coriander, pineapple and candied fruit.
Velvety palate of citrus and burnt caramel with spicy notes. The hops are dry and slightly bitter.
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.
