Review taken from notes: June 2012.

750ml brown abbey style bomber. Corked Belgian style. Classy label with superb quality. Poured into a footed Flute like glass.

A - Lemon like golden with orange highlights in the shadows of the lighting. Lots of cloudy haze with a bubble effect. Snow white head sits atop and quickly resides to a fine ring of lace. Lots of sediment at the bottom of this. Hey, I freaking love The funk.

S - Fruity with fresh lemon, orange, and light grapefruit. Whiffs of sweetness and wheat along with a Belgian style yeast(Canadian Belgo in this case)

T - Very good yeast flavor with this taste. Soft banana, lemon and sweet orange fruitiness with a Unibroue marked wheat character. No real bitterness detected with a smooth, refreshing finish.

M - champagne like and refreshing on a hot day. Somewhat light while still remaining smooth and flavorful. Very drinkable especially on a hot humid evening.

O - I've had Blanche de Chambly often over the past 5 or so years and it deserved a review long ago. This was one of the first Unibroue beers I picked up and one I would recommend to anyone. It's a good representation of the Belgian witbier style and probably the best coming from North America. Canadian craft breweries are often overlooked, but without question Unibroue is one that are excellent at what they do. Blanche De Chambly is a very good beer in an often under done style considering its Belgian. This is a worthy ale in the warm months and fairly easy to require anywhere. It's worth the purchase for anyone who appreciates class beer.

3.84/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Golden, slightly yellow color; huge head!
S: Powerfully sweet, citrus/orange scent
T: Very light; Obvious low ABV; Extremely orange-y but the aftertaste isn't amazing
M: Soft bite which fades; nothing exceptional

Though pouring this gorgeous beverage looks incredibly promising, the taste and feel seem too light to leave an impression. The orange is almost overwhelming. The first kick is light but great, and the aftertaste is greater. It's all the steps in the middle that make this drink lackluster.

Hazy blonde color. Small head resting.

Rough spicing, coriander, orange peel, hints of sage, lemon rind, and tangy wheat.

Soft wheat, citrus peel, lemon, coriander, yeast esters, and faint green apple.

Deliciously light and easy. Carbonated moderately. Nice.
