Unibroue Ale, White, on Lees, Blanche de Chambly

Blanche de Chambly honours Captain Jacques de Chambly, who built historic Fort Chambly on the Richelieu River in 1665 to defend Montreal and the colony. Dispatched by King Louis XIV to lead the fighting Carignan-Salieres Regiment, he achieved the legendary Iroquois peace of 1667. He was awarded the title of Seigneur of the region (today Chambly). Officers and soldiers were also encouraged to stay. Many of them married Filles du Roi and prospered. Bottle refermented. Blanche de Chambly has an alluring pale golden color, effervescent foam and a subtle bouquet of spice and citrus notes. It is mildly malty, slightly sweet and refreshingly thirst-quenching. 5% alc./vol.
