Notes: A new beer from Unibroue born of the friendship between its Brewmaster Jerry Vietz and Dave Mustaine, legendary lead vocalist and founder of heavy metal group Megadeth, is officially launching today in the U.S. and Quebec. Named À TOUT LE MONDE as a nod to one of the band’s songs and one of their biggest hits in Quebec, this beer recalls the consonance of Unibroue’s flagship beer, La Fin du Monde.

Dave Mustaine became friends with Jerry Vietz during Megadeth tours in Quebec. During their time together, Dave and Jerry created À TOUT LE MONDE as a symbol of their friendship. “At Unibroue, we appreciate flavour – and we know Megadeth is anything but boring,” explains Jerry Vietz, Brewmaster at Unibroue. “To Megadeth’s delight and that of their fans and connoisseurs, we’re offering an uncompromising beer with rich hoppy aromas, created according to Dave’s personal tastes.”

“Our shared passion for excellence produced a one-of-a-kind saison beer,” added Dave Mustaine, Megadeth’s lead vocalist and founder. “I’m thrilled to present this new beer to my fans, and everyone who loves good beers with character.”

À TOUT LE MONDE ale is a flavorful Belgian style dry hopped golden saison with hoppy and spicy notes. Topped by an unctuous head, this beer will give fans a clean, fresh taste and a crisp dry finish inviting to take another sip.

12 ounce bottle poured into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass.

L---Hazy, burnt orange color. Thick, rocky, off white head with excellent retention and excellent lacing. This is a serious looker.

S---Yeasty. Malty. No real funk or sourness that I was expecting. Very light fruitines

T---As in the nose, no real funkiness/sourness like I was expecting, but it was still quite flavorful. Very malty. Very yeasty. Breadlike with a good amount of fruity sweetness.

F---Light. Well carbonated. No pucker or sourness.

O---Pretty damn good. Doesn't really ring my saison bell, but what it is is pretty damn good. I'd definitely like another.

12oz bottle. Stamped best by date is '09-05-20'.
Cloudy, pale gold colored body. Big, three finger white head, that billows up and down. Leaves behind some thick spots of lacing.
Aroma of bready malt, spice, and dry yeast.
Taste of darker bread, apple, lemon and lime, and a little spice. The other big component is the earthy, dry yeast.
Medium mouth feel, with a little effervescence. Very good carbonation.
This is a low ABV% beer with lots of flavors, a very dry finish, and a very refreshing nature.

Fan of quebecoise brews and of uni. this no exception, because it packs power in low wattage format.
interesting mixed 6 at wegmans for 9.99.

a - big head, powerful looking, that lasts and laces firmly, hazed golden body.
s - yeasty perfumes rise. White pepper, s. blanc wine, fresh baked bread.
t - follows aroma but adds more. Fruit and spice follow. Orange, lemon, white grape and green apple. complex.
f - clean drying finish, good apertif.
o - most of what i seek in golden light saison ale, esp the wine-like complexity and pucker.

750ml bottle: This one pours a clear golden color. There was a pretty frothy white head that dropped off quickly and left no lacing. Lighter nose. A little spicy and floral. A faint earthiness. The taste is good, but definitely a little lighter than a typical saison. A little spicy, light malts, faint citrus. Good. A session saison?

Look: Slightly hazy dark gold color. Pours a thick head that evolve into medium sized bubbles after a minute, and then collapsed to about half a finger. There was a little lacing left on the side of the glass.

Smell: Sweet floral and light fruit scents. Swirling the glass kicked up a funky, slight barnyard scent to join the florals.

Taste: Some fruit, a light malt, a bit sweet, and a small amount of pepper spiciness. A little bitter shows up in the aftertaste after the other flavors slowly fade out.

Feel: Tongue tingling as it quickly grows to medium sized bubbles in a foam.

Overall: A light beer from Unibroue? This is closer to a summer beer than most of their offerings. Could drink this every day instead of as a special treat.

A layered and complex malty base of flavor is set against well structured and dry yeasty notes typical of Belgian style saisons. I don't notice a strong hop aroma, but there is a bit of herbal sweetness on the nose that is quite nice. A rich but very enjoyable saison. Not as one-dimensional as many American versions (which is a good thing, and quite in line with the high quality I have come to expect from this brewery).

Medium lace. Matt and cloudy gold/yellow color with healthy dose of fizziness. Fruity (peach and apricot) and grassy aromas. Kick of Carbonated spice to go along with the fruity tastes (in addition to peach I detect citrus). Hint of bitter and dry, curt, crisp finish. I like the Quebec, (this one with an Americana pop culture spin) to these Belgian beer styles on the marketing side. To all the world: Megadeth....and Belgian beer. Drink!

A- Love the masculine looking bottle with the cork in the top! The brew itself is a semi hazed, honey amber hue, with gold/orange/copper background coloration. The head retains quite well, with the eggshell colored foam starting out around 3 fingers in thickness, before softly dissipating down to a one finger layer. Carbonation seems to be reasonably aggressive, as there are many columns rising to the top in quick fashion, while the lacing is modest and slippery, quickly heading back into the liquid abyss!

S- A fair bit of yeast, peppery spice, alongside muted whole clove, some fruitiness (banana/apricot kernel come to mind), deep caramel/toffee malt sweetness, dry grass, and on the finish, it is somewhat hopped and of citrus rind. Quite interesting and a wide range of smells happening here!

T- The flavors follow suit to the aromas, but with more of an initial citrus tang, alongside orchard peach/apricot flesh. The malt sweetness comes through well, providing a creamy yeasty caramel character. On the finish, I get a refreshing blend of lime/grapefruit and leafy hop bitterness, that just hits all areas of the palate well.

M/O- Clean, crisp and light bodied are the three main qualities of this department. The carbonation, as it appeared, is zingy and gets the whole experience over in a short time. I quite like the lower alcohol in this one and appreciate the rustic nature this brings to the table. High drinkability and will look at getting again in the future!

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; best by 9-13-19.
A: Pours a very hazy, golden color, with very exuberant, perhaps three or four head formation, solid cap retention, but limited lacing.
S: Pungent. Aromas of caramel malt, cloves, cardamom, and fruit (mostly macintosh apple and banana), as well as complex, somewhat peppery spice notes.
T: Cloves meet the palate initially followed by a complex mix of the elements of nose. Bitterness present but subtle and nicely in balance.
M: Medium bodied with solid persistent effervescence.
O: Brings back memories of Québec in 2008. Really a world class Belgian style Saison.

À Tout Le Monde aime la bière. I'm so glad that I can remember some of my French, otherwise I wouldn't be allowed to touch another Unibroue. Geez, I was only kidding about that! This was part of a mix-six pack from Unibroue, and I'm ready to delve into it. On to the beer:

Peach-flesh colored with a somewhat clouded body where carbonation bubbles are still visible. Bone white head above is soft and leaves creamy lace. That Unibroue yeast is very distinct, but here is smells spicy and dry. Dare I say a little funky? Fresh cut grass, lime peel. I'm starting to wish I sliced a few parts of cheese for this.

Light bodied and soft carbonation set the mood for this quenching beer. Here, it's about quick, soft, and succulent flavors. Light with the funk and barnyard, grass come in to play. Dries up cleanly. Sure, I could complain how the flavor could be a little stronger, though as it stands, Unibroue has a dry and soft alternative to the infamous Blanche de Chambly.

Pretty much as advertised: a hoppy light saison. Lots of flavor given the low abv. Citrus, some spice, bread, slight grassiness. Lively and well carbonated mouthfeel.

A: Poured from the 750mL bottle into a tulip glass. The beer is a clear golden orange color with lots of carbonation inside. Head is slightly off-white, foamy, and reduced down to a finger quickly, where it remains for a while.

S: Orange and slight grapefruit. Light spices and a hint of balancing malt. This smells more like a light IPA than a saison, and I'm not getting any of the yeasty, earthy farmhouse notes that I usually associate with saisons. Still, it's a refreshing-smelling beer.

T: Sweet citrusy and almost creamy taste, with light fruit and a hint of peppery spice, but very subtle. Light Belgian yeast character. Light flavor all around in fact, but very balanced and refreshing.

F: Slightly creamy.

Overall: Another saison offering from Unibroue that is more like a light version of the style. A good beer and really refreshing.

slight hazy rustic orange, thin white foam
rustic malt, some spice, Belgian yeast aroma on the clove side, not much left of the dry hopping aromas. (5 month before BBF).
Taste is Belgian malt, spices, dry, rustic, tart note
evervescent, rather thin,
nice low abv Saison. Being a long time Megadeth fan and admiring the portfolio of Unibroue and the good memories of visiting Montreal once and their brewpub I wanted this to be great. First a bit underwhelmed it grew on me as it warmed up. Do not drink this a 5degreeC but warmer to let it shine. However, with 2 to 3 more % of alcohol this would be really good. This way it remains a bit watery.

Probably my favorite Belgian beer thus far - which is saying a lot, considering I'm not a big fan of the Belgian yeast flavors or aromas. Nice copper-amber color, quite a fair amount of fluffy head and just a scant amount of lingering lacing. Smells of dark fruit, some nice malt and just a hint of Belgian yeast. Tastes similarly, except that it's not overly sweet or cloying at all. A nice faint amount of spices in the background, along with some caramel and bread. Smooth mild mouthfeel, good carbonation. I clearly still have to work on developing my palate for these types of Belgian beers, but this one hit the mark for me.

12oz brown bottle - best by 9/13/2018

Unibroue A Tout Le poured a slightly cloudy gold color into my tulip glass. Atop sat a white 1 1/2-finger white head. Good size carbonation bubbles rushed to the top of the glass. The nose was clean and fresh. Dominated by the smell of citrus and grassy hops. The taste matches the nose. The citrus taste of grapefruit is upfront with light spices in the background. The finish is crisp, dry and slightly hoppy. Mouth feel is light-medium with medium carbonation.

Overall, an easy drinking sessional Saison.

Yes, another bottle, but their numbers are dwindling here at Chez Woody. I have been a fan of Unibroue's beers for some time & I was intrigued by the collaboration between the brewery and the band Megadeth. Heck, I guess that I am a sucker for marketing, but c'est la vie!

From the Bottle: "Belgian Style Saison Ale"; "Dry Hopped"; "Ale Brewed with Spices"; "Bottle Refermented".

It was this last that gave me pause. The updated Style Guide does not mention appearance in terms of clarity, so I
Pop!ped the cap & went with a slow, gentle pour so as to leave the lees on the punt, at least initially. It required some restraint on my part since it turned out to be one of those screwed-up screw-off caps! I liked that it formed a cap of just better than a finger's worth of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head on its own, but it quickly reduced to wisps. Color was a solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity (on my initial pour). Nose was light, not as strong in terms of its "farmhouse" smell as some, with a very pleasant honeysuckle floweriness. Mouthfeel was medium, but very carbonated. This was a very light, delicate taste, not as powerful as many Saisons that I have tried & while we are supposed to rate to style & not to personal taste, this was more my speed. The taste was only lightly funky with a faint floweriness that I am calling honeysuckle with a light breadiness from the malt. This was very pleasant & very refreshing on yet another hot, humid summer's day. Finish was semi-dry, again, quite refreshing without being totally dry like some in the style. Having polished off that first pour, I continued by agitating what remained in the bottle & giving the now-suspended lees a heavy-handed pour. It was now quite murky, like the waters of the turbid Conestoga River following last week's intense rainfall. Nose became a bit more funky, but not by a huge margin. Mouthfeel remained static. The taste had a bit more of a piquant quality, but it was still eminently drinkable. I found myself wishing that the spices had been more assertive than just contributing to the beer's dryness. Oh well. YMMV.

Aside from the weak, watery blahness of this brew, the rosemary flavour is a complete turnoff. It came in a taster's pack, so it wasn't my choice and I would never attempt it again. Yuck.

Had on tap at a local watering hole on a hot summer day. Color was brownish yellow with a small bubbly head which dissipated quickly. Smell was grassy and citrusy. Taste was a bit of a letdown because I didn't get any of the winey hints that I've come to expect from this style and the mouthfeel wasn't as smoothly thirst quenching as anticipated. A slightly disappointing experience from a brewer I've gotten used to being better.

Pours out a cloudy honey color. Head is with with little retention. No lacing.
The nose has Belgian yeast and candy sugar, citrus fruit, spice and a bit of bread.
Light on the flavor. Not sweet at all. Dry with some Belgian spice and yeast with a semi sour backbone.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with revitalizing carbonation. Very refreshing and seems to suit the beer well.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This rather nice little saison pours a
nice amber tinged golden color with a nice head of white foam that
settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and shows some spotty lacing. Nose of
lemon grass, spicy hops, soft wheat, crackers, subtle herbal notes,
and mild Belgian yeast notes. Flavors follow the nose with lemon grass/
zest flavors mingling with yeasty goodness and light cracker flavors atop
subtle candy sugars that give balance to a lightly tart finish and subtly
spicy hopped finish. Very nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium
carbonation that is crisp and refreshing, and a nice lightly tart and moderately
dry finish.

Overall a stellar saison. Not shabby at all.
