Blanche de Chambly, one of our Top Summer Beers


Unibroue Blanche de Chambly

The Belgian-inspired Canadian brewery Unibroue is located in Chambly, a small town near Montreal. Introduced in 1992, its Blanche de Chambly (white of Chambly) was the brewery's first creation, named for its city of origin, and is a Belgian-style witbier packed full of spiciness. It delivers a hazy pour due to the fact that it is bottle-conditioned, meaning that its carbonation is derived from a secondary fermentation that occurs naturally in the bottle. The spicy flavors that are compliments of the coriander, orange peel and Belgian yeast in this brew give way to a smooth wheat beer character. The abundant Champagne-like carbonation in this beer makes it a summer refresher that packs a big punch in flavor.

Price: $2.40 (12 oz.)
