One of the more distinctive Unibroue beers, aside from their fruit flavoured ones.
Cloudy and pale orange-brown. Smells strongly of yeast (well duh! It's a Unibroue) and melon, maybe strawberries. Weird. Continues below
Tastes delicious, quite fizzy for a Unibroue. Mellow and fruity, bitter peel and something hard to pin down. Actually it tastes a lot like the Ephemere fruit range without the fruit flavours added, if that makes any sense at all. Probably not.
Hard to describe this beer. Meanwhile, if you're wondering about the name, it celebrates the "Patriotes" rebellion of the same year, when the French attempted to overthrow their British oppressors. It was a major defeat. Strange thing to commemorate if you ask me. I guess it's the gesture that counts?
