It’s been four of The Best of the Mixed Six-Pack, with Unibroue Blanche De Chambly, 5.0% ABV. This is a Belgian style white ale from Canada brewed with Coriander and Orange Peel then its bottle refermented, which means a second fermentation takes place within the bottle. Unibroue is one of my favorite brewers and brews some of the most amazing beers. Blanche De Chambly pours a hazy sort of bight yellow color with a bright three finger white head that slow to fade but does transition into some nice lacing. The aroma is quite nice with some spiced orange peel with a hint of a yeast character. Blanche De Chambly has a nice refreshing taste to it with nice yeasted orange peel with hints of the coriander spice. The taste is one the heavier side but really solid. The mouthfeel is one heavier side of the medium spectrum and has a nice refreshing finish of slight orange and faint spiced notes, the same can be said of the aftertaste but the is a slightly heavy feeling in the said aftertaste. This is definitely an A beer for sure. It’s a bit heavy but a lot of good Belgian style white ales are, so have many is not recommend. It this better than Westbrook White Thai? Well, Westbrook White Thai is not as heavy as Blanche De Chambly and White Thai has more of a broader flavor to it with a slight tropical feel to it. But this is a tough question. They are both White Ales, but different takes on each. One is traditional and one isn’t. But to find out which comes out on top, you’ll have to stay tuned here to find out. Cheers!
