I love the look of a nice Blanche de Chambly. There are no other beers that I have tried that capture such a dazzling light show of carbonation.
My bottle is the 750ml variety and on the first pour I'm careful not to inject any yeast into the glass as I like the show. Huge amounts of sparkling bubbles twist and turn their way to the top of the glass forming a large white head. It subsides to a thick cap of foam but leaves no lacing behind unfortunately. The initial pours are crystal clear with a pale gold color. Later pours have yeast combined and the transparency is gone but the color is richer and more golden.
The smell is representative.. light citrus fruits, yeast and spices. And the taste has more.. especially the signature Unibroue yeasts, but overall the drink is quite light and refreshing.
Mouthfeel is remarkably smooth given the high carbonation.
Drinkability is good. These bottles are big but they go down fast.
