Lune De Miel is a Belgian Strong Pale Ale brewed by Unibroue, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a Teku glass from a bottle.
The ale pours a cloudy orange golden and topped by a thick cap of white foam that shows fine retention. A soapy collar remains following the reduction.
The aroma is predominantly yeasty with spices and is slightly sweet with a scent of honey and apple.
Tasting begins with a taste pear followed by a mild bitterness of light herbal hops along with funky yeast and stone fruit. Finishes with a taste of apple juice. A malty base of sourdough bread ties the palate together. There is a slight alcohol presence here especially as the beer warms.
The ale has a dry, medium body with a lively feel of medium-high carbonation that tickles the tongue.
Lune De Miel offers a tasty blend of fruits, Belgian yeast, and grain that’s delightfully complex. Its bubbly feel is dry, refreshing, and easy to drink.
The brewery recommends the following food pairings with this ale: chicken tournedos, honey-mustard pork loin, mild German sausages, salad, and mustard-lacquered carrots. Cheeses of mild semi-soft washed rind cheese, Cambozola cheese, and aged gouda. Sweets of chocolate and Baklava.
