Blanche de Chambly - Unibroue (Canada - Quebec - Chambly)
An enticing spicy and floral aroma. The taste is more citrusy than the aroma; the floral and spiciness tastes are all there and there is also a creamy umami taste. Though it has that creamy mouthfeel I mentioned it isn't too thick but also a somewhat watery which makes it a very refreshing as well as interesting. White Ales are amongst my favourites for just that reason. The lees or sediment does not take away from the taste really at all so there is no need to go to great lengths to avoid it. I would still recommend drinking this from a glass rather than a bottle (especially the 750 ml bottles!) so you can better appreciate the colour and aroma.
