Belgium Swag from Canada: Unibroue 17

Unibroue 17 10% ABV

I’m a big Unibroue fan, mainly because its a brewery that’s relatively close to me and makes awesome Belgium style beers (my favorite style). So walking through the beer store the other day I came across a beer I thought had never seen, Unibroue 17.  Originally named for their 17th anniversary, they have released the beer and kept the name. This beer has won many awards, to which Unibroue 17 proudly displays on the booklet hanging from the beer’s neck. Is it worth all of the hype?

I paid $15 for this one bottle of Unibroue 17 and I’m not sure if I will pay $15 for it again mainly because its a good beer that’s expensive. I don’t mind paying those prices for a great beer but not just a good beer. I’m still a self-proclaimed Unibroue groupie and will continue to dream of bathing in vats of Trois Pistoles and La Fin Du Monde while being fed grapes and fanned by beer cherubs. :)

About Irving

I'm just a guy who has a passion for good beer. Over the past few years I've been making it a point to introduce my friends to good quality beer and now, all of you. There's a world beyond cold activated cans, clydesdales, green bottles and Mexican clear bottled beer, you just need to tap that keg. Stay thirsty but stay different.

    You know that’s funny, because I just picked up a bottle of that last week myself. It sits in the cellar with my other bombers. Wanted to do a review on it soon, but I guess the early bird gets the worm. Thanks for the heads up, now I know what to look for. On another note, we have a Big Beer from Southeast Texas to check out soon.
