Québec City celebrated its four hundredth anniversary in 2008 and for this special event Québec's renowned Unibroue (the "official brewer") crafted tonight's limited edition beer. Aptly named "Quatre-Centième", it showed a creamy, yeasty nose with some lemon and orange peel. The palate was simple and refreshing - citrus cream flavours with a sturdy texture and a fine mousse. Flawless, but less complex than my other Unibroue faves (1,2) - can I call this a New World Hoegaarden?
PS - the bottle shot comes from friendlier weather but the notes are fresh
