On May 1, 1997, Unibroue launched 1837. It is dedicated to the heroes who died fighting for the freedom of our country during that year. Some fought at the battle of St-Eustache, and others were executed at the Pied-du-Courant. In keeping with its historical significance, the beer was launched at the Governor1s Mansion, which was the residence of the Pied-du-Courant prison governor. 1837 is a blonde beer that is slightly cloudy. It contains 7% alcohol and is refermented in the bottle. Following the brewing tradition of the great abbey beers, it is made with a blend of Quebec-grown raw wheat, lightly roasted barley and a hint of spices. It is a truly refreshing beer.

    Bottled (from lahoublonniere.be). Yellowish golden colour with small white head. Aroma is some yeast, spices, caramel malts and fruits. Flavour is quite much the same. As it all warms up it gets a bit more sweet and also alcohol starts to show up a bit. Still quite solid as most other Unibroue brews.

    Poured out a hazy yellow beer, totally unfiltered with a huge puffy white head that did die and left no more than a ring. Very little spotty lacing and a tiny amount of sediment. Awesome aroma! Stiff spice, bananas early on, more nice warm spice, some citrus (orange) and mild yeast. The taste is fairly mild with a faint touch of alcohol, a bit of yeast - which is very balanced and excellent - seemingly better than other Unibroque stuff. Soft and balanced. The mouth feel is smooth with some heated spice on the finish. Pretty much medium bodied. An excellent beer.

    Straw yellow mildly cloudy with a thin white head that doesn’t seem to want to leave and had ok lacing, nice looking beer but not great. Sweet flowery yeast and a touch of banana aromas fill the nose smooth and enjoyable but maybe a touch mild. Sweet smooth wheaty taste, along with your typical Unibroue yeast flavor, very floral tasting along with some mild spices, no alcohol can be detected. Smooth and refreshing with an enjoyable flavor great beer and I’ll pick it up again.

    Pours a hazy looking yellow color with a massive white foamy head that lasted for a little while. The look of this beer screamed Hefe too me!!! I quite enjoyed the look of this beer more then normal dont know why, i just did! Aroma consisted of spice (pepper), yeast, fruit and a slight touch of alcohol. the taste was of spice, fruit (citrus) and yeast. while the mouthfeel was a tad weaker then i expected it to be, it seems to fit perfectly with this beer. aftertaste is slightly spicey, like a crossbreed between pepper and ginger... another great Unibroue beer!! :)

    Came in a 750 ml brown caged and corked bottle, opened with a good sounding pop. Looks like a cloudy wheat beer, light color with large head of big bubbles. Good retention and left lots of sticky lacing. Very yeasty smell, spice and some banana aromas. Also could smell coriander, and other fruits, especially citrus and specifically pineapple. The flavour mirrors the smell - coriander spice, and citrus fruit taste. Seems like a wheat beer with higher alcohol content that warms all the way down to your stomach. The mouthfeel is full, with good carbonation. Creamy texture but not sticky or oily. Not as complex or powerful as some other Unibroue beers, but glad I found this one. Will keep a bottle on hand.

    Stashed away for about a year and half, finally popped open to celebrate Canada Day 2006!
    Poured with great head, which would lightly float atop the beer like a sleek sheet of snow. A glowing beigish colour. Bubbles, semi transparent. The Unibroue yeast seems to have faded nicely, though some is still present and adds a nice, distinct character. Not overwhelming, doesn't ruin the flavour like in fresh Unibroue, rather it contributes. Aroma is pleasent with some coriander. A light, unaggresive carbonation and texture. Excellent use of gentle spices, enough coriander component. This is not far from a witbier. A highly quaffable Belgian Ale. This beer reminded me that, despite recent failures, Unibroue are still capable of offering some excellent, stellar ales. Final conclussion: damn tasty.

    07.10.05 750 bottle (no date), FF, RBSG tour. Pear, orange, tropical, fruit salad, winterberry, pineapple. Flavor mellows. Even and soft eff. More of the house character, of course, but I’m still one who has not tired of the Unibroue signature. Mild for a triple (as it’s listed on the bottle/menu) and actually reminds me of a spicy saison or brisk ale. Some spice, pepper, bright; yeast is major component, corriander.

    A slightly hazed, pale straw colored ale. good cap and lacing but does not linger. Well carbonated. Nose is perfumey, some grass and bready sweetness. starts tart/sharp then a sweed bready body appears with some citrus and fruit tones, finishes semi dry with a musty perfumish taste. Light in body for a Blgian, this is a very refreshing ale yet warming...one of UB’s more drinkable brews.

    Pourred a whitish brew with a nice bubbly head with medium retention time. Complex mix of spice and hops that is very enjoyable. Full body with hint of alcohol. Not Unibroue best but still very enjoyable overall.
