I'm drinking my first Maudite tonight. First impression: hot. Even when served at about 40', it's got some burn to it.

I'm not impressed by Unibroue overall. I prefer taste over ABV.

I have a bottle each of Maudite and Trois Pistoles in the fridge which were part of a mixed 12-pack raffle at the local HB club, which I won last month. I'll try one or both tomorrow, I think.

Is the unibroue 10 still available? Or was that an anniversary beer? I had it a while ago and enjoyed it a lot. Although i am fan of most of the unibroue beers.

Ok so, on a friggin whim I decided to get a case of the Sampler.

I tried a Fin du Monde and a Trois Pistoles, my wife tried an Ephemere.

I really dig the Fin du Monde. This is an excellent interpretation of a Trappist style triple fermented ale. High ratings! The Trois was very good as well, and the Ephemere had an incredible presentation in the glass...so effervescent. The green apple is quite up front, it is good but reminds me of Jolly Ranchers apple. My favorite thus far was the Fin. Unfortunately they are so smooth, I shouldn't have had the two! 9% is high my friends .

Maybe tonight I'll try a Maudite. It was kind of cool actually, the sampler was supposed to have 9 bottles x 3...2 Fin's, 2 Maudite, 2 Trois (I think), 1 Ephemere and 1 Don but it came with 1 Trois and some other one I can't find on their site...some "dark beer" as it were. Fwiw, this is probably the best variety sampler I have seen and imo that is what a sampler should be! Course it is fairly expensive, but then again this isn't a guzzle-it-down beer either.

Unibroue might be my very favorite brewery in the world. They have an amazing assortment of quality beers. I always thought of the Fin du Monde as more of a Duvel-like golden ale, but either way, it's TASTY.

Trois Pistoles is my favorite though. If you like the darker ones, you should definitely see if you can find a bottle of the Terrible. It's around 10%, and it only comes in 750mL bottles, but it's fantastic.

I just brewed a crude Ephemere clone earlier this week. I'd like to try and come close to Trois Pistoles one of these days as well.

They would certainly be a brewery to shoot for in terms of quality and excellence. If you are going to clone, that is a good one.

Default Thread resurrection

I'm headed to Philthadelphia this weekend, and will be swinginng by the LHBS in town where I grewup. As a result I have been fooling around with developing this clone again.

2-row Pale Malt 60.00%
Crystal Malt 4.00%
Belgian Cara-Vienne Malt6.00%
Belgian Aromatic Malt 6.00%
Belgian Special B Malt 10.00%
Munich Malt 10.00%
Malted Wheat 2.50%
Flaked Barley 1.50%

Hops IBU's
EKG 15 Kettle
Hallertau 7 Middle
Saaz 5 Late

I have omitted the sugar this time around in hopes of coming up with something more closely aligned with the beer. As my friend mentioned he did not see any candy sugar at the brewery.
I'm winging the hop schedule, as well as keeping it simple, and will likely tweak it some more before it's brewed. I'll be shooting for a SG ~ 1.077 which may be a little on the high side, but what the hey?

I hear they discontinued the W3864, so it's back to the drawing board on the yeast. Perhaps WLP500 Trappist Ale Yeast or the WLP 530 Belgin abbey yeast for primary fermentation, and then krausen with some yeast cultured from a 750 ml bottle of Maudite for bottling.
