Had at the St. Huberts on Saint Catherine Street in Montrèal. This beer is brewed exclusively for this chain of very decent chicken rotisseries.

12oz bottle, served in its own branded tulip glass as a cloudy peach colored beer with a thick, creamy white lace. Fruity aromas of tropical fruits, corriander, hints of yeast and alcohol. Tropical fruits carry into the flavor and are a bit juicy, sweet/candied and complex. Body is thickish for a moment, but is immediately broken up and lifted by a sharp carbonation fizz and a bitter edge. Bitty corriander spice. Chalky yeast and lingering fruits in the finish.

I was informed by Unibroue at Mondial de la bière 2004 that this is simply a blend of "Blanche de Chambly" and "La Fin du Monde." Regardless, this unique Unibroue blend went very well with one of the best dark meat chicken clubs I've ever had.

Once brewed for the Rotisserie St-Hubert, a classic chicken rosterie in Québec.

Appearance was good

Smell was good

Taste very much like the mix of Blanche de Chambly and LA Fin de Monde. Two classic brews of Unibroue.

The taste belongs to Unibroue

Mouthfeel is a mix of lA Blanche and fin du monde.

Good drinkability

Good quality brew.

R.I.P.

Had this beer at one of the St. Hubert chains in Montreal. For a place that some consider a "chicken joint", the place was very nicely set up and had a good beer dedicated just for the restaurant.

Pours hazy with an aroma of fruitiness, coriander most prominent. Carbonation is a little more than average but doesn't get in the way of a sweet tasting beer (but not overly sweet). Goes great with their all you can eat coleslaw.

Unibroue would make a wise move to start mass distributing this beer, wouldn't be difficult since it is a mixture of two existing Unibroue beers.

Bottle: Poured a hazy deep beige color ale with a nice foamy head with great retention. Aroma of coriander is well balance with the typical Unibroue yeast and good Belgian malt. Taste is also quite heavy on the coriander with some great spices and yeasty finish. I know this is probably a mix between Blanche de Chambly and Fin du Monde but I thought the mix was particularly well done in this case.

A very light colour, yellow golden. A decent sized head forms. A gritty and aggresive presence of coriander and spice. Dominates the aroma almost completely. Tasty and zesty mouthfeel. Citruisy notes, lemon and such, with a smooth, easy texture. This would pair well with a number of things, but I can imagine especially the St. Hubert chicken. A solid, rounding finish. Bits of yeast. Flavour is actually very appealing. The first decent Unibroue offering in a while...
Thanks Harry!

Had this in the bottle at St. Hubert's in downtown Montreal (chicken was pretty good too...)

Typical Unibroue-ish characteristics. Cloudy yellow with good lacing and a fruity citrusy aroma. A bit of a spritzy beer - light with a high carbonation that could be toned down a bit. Bitterness was low, and dominant flavours were lemon, yeast and grapefruit. More drinkable than the bigger beers like fin du monde, but still flavourful.

Had this at St-Hubert, didn't have any food to go along with it, unfortunately.

Appearance: Opaque and yellow-ish, with microbubbly head that died down into a thick lace, reminded me of a saison.

Smell: Spicy, some mustard seed, citrus fresh and surprisingly not very yeasty.

Taste: Corainder and other spices, lively carbonation yet creamy smooth...The yeast presence is there, but plays more of a secondary role, a rarity with this brewery. I enjoyed it very much.

Apparently, you can have some delivered to your door when you order some chicken...sweet!

Hazy pils appearance with a sticky thin white head, foamy and rocky. Aroma is yeasty with lemonspice fruitiness and obvious coriander character. It’s hard to point out more fruits, but I know they’re there, pineapple maybe. Very coriander oriented palate. A bit watery palate, but at the same time moderately creamy and with moderately high carbonation. A stranger strong witbier with pils malt and carbonation.

Sampled at St. Huberts in Quebec City, QC (where else). This beer came in a very unique bottle and in a exclusive signature glass. This beer is brewed exclusively for the St. Hubert franchise of fine chicken restaurants and it does not dissapoint. This beer, like all of Unibroues offerings was very good! It poured a nice golden colour with a huge head. The aromas were of spices, belgian yeasts and sugars and malts. The taste, more of the same...very spicy and very refreshing! The mouthfeel was average and the drinkability was very good. This washed down my biscuit, cole slaw, and chicken strips very well. It also complemented my dessert quite nicely as well!
Cheers!

Note: St. Hubert is not a little fried chicken joint like KFC like one reviewer here has said. It is a pretty fancy chicken restaurant. It is a very large chain in QC and the restaurants are usually quite large and quite nice....
