Unibroue À Tout Le Monde

Rating:

I haven’t been a fan of Megadeth in a very long time, like Peace Sells long time. The band just has not been good for a while, but that didn’t stop me from picking up Unibroue’s À Tout Le Monde — I’m a huge fan of many of the Canadian brewery’s products. The company’s La Terrible and their 17 Grande Reserve are, among several of their beers, some of my favorites of all time. Unfortunately, this hop-forward saison will not reach that pantheon.

I’m all for a hoppy beer, but the strong bite just doesn’t work for me personally. There’s a gentle bit of yeasty funk that I would rather focus on than the level of bitterness which really doesn’t belong. The touch of wheat, bread and hint of banana are all present as well, but the tastebuds are distracted from all that by the assertive hop profile. I do enjoy the active and lively mouthfeel, though — it does refresh nicely.

I honestly don’t care if Megadeth or any other band decides to put their branding on a beer. I’m only interested in what pours into my glass once that bottle or can has been tipped. And what we have here with Unibroue À Tout Le Monde, is a beer that has over-stepped its bounds with too strong of a hop character. I’d personally rather encounter more of the saison than the bitterness, even as a daily drinker of IPAs.

Appearance

À Tout Le Monde pours an unfiltered and hazy muted amber in color. the large column of white foam drops slowly to a full, dense crown around the surface.
