I was given a mixed 6-pack as a birthday gift from Kurt and Michelle (our friends/managers at work) and tried the first beer last night (09/28/2015) to celebrate National Drink Beer Day 2015. If you see this, thanks again guys! This first beer was Unibroue’s Blanche de Chambly, a 5% alcohol by volume Belgian White Ale (Witbier) from Unibroue located in Chambly, Quebec, Canada. Since it was a gift, I’m not sure where the 6-pack came from but I have seen this beer at the West Indies Wine Company if you find yourself looking for it in Grand Cayman. I bet some of the other liquor stores would have it as well.
Unibroue’s Blanche de Chambray came in a 12 fluid ounce (355 mL) bottle with silver foil over the bottle cap and “ale brewed with coriander and orange peel” written on the front label. This is usually pretty normal for the Witbier style of beer. The bottle also lets you know that the beer was bottle refermented.
It’s always very easy to add a beer to the blog from Unibroue because they supply you with so much information about each one of their beers. I’ll just do like the last post and list out all of the information taken from their website below.
