Beer Mail from Unibroue - Seigneuriale

A nice surprise from the fine folks at Unibroue - Seigneuriale.

"The Seigneurial Regime of Medieval Europe flourished in New France until the mid 19th century. In 1667, Pierre Boucher Sieur de Grosbois established a Seigneurie in Boucherville on the South Shore of Montréal. The last three seigneurs resided in the sumptuous François Pierre Boucher manor of Boucherville built in the 1750’s and declared a historical monument in 1974. This ale is dedicated to these ancestral roots."

A Gold Medal winner in 2006 at the World Beer Championships, this ale boasts a hint of orange peel, spices, coriander, pineapple and candied fruit.  With smooth citrus and burnt caramel tastes, it would pair nicely with game, washed-rind cheese, apricot-glazed duck, Thai shrimp curry, crème brûlée, dark chocolate or a holiday fruit cake.

I am looking forward to tasting this delight!
