À TOUT LE MONDE Ale honors the mutual passions and friendship of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Unibroue’s Master Brewer Jerry Vietz. It is brewed as a tribute to all the friends of hard rock music and Belgian style ales in Quebec and throughout the world.
Heavy metal has played a very influential role in the history of Quebec’s musical development and Quebec city has the reputation of being one of the metal music capitals of the world. It is a closely-knit culture characterized by very passionate and devoted fans, much like that of Unibroue’s refermented ales.
So it shouldn’t be a surprise that when Dave and Jerry’s paths recently crossed, their mutual passions for both arts would spark a desire for a Megadeth beer brewed by Unibroue.
And so À TOUT LE MONDE Ale was born, inspired by the most popular hard rock song to feature a chorus sung entirely in French, and whose video is in the Music Hall of Fame of Quebec’s most popular TV music show. The beer is a refreshing and artisanal Belgian Style Dry Hopped Saison and the label appropriately and prominently features a symbol that is synonymous to Megadeth, their well-known mascot Vic Rattlehead.
STYLE: Unibroue-style dry-hopped Saison. 4.5% ABV.
APPEARANCE: Hazy medium golden yellow in color with faint honey colored highlights and active streaming carbonation rising from the bottom. Dense pillowy foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to large patch of medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer.
AROMA: Moderate aromas of pale bready malts with a light aroma of citrusy grapefruit, Meyer lemon, satsuma orange, white peach, Asian pear, green peppercorn, coriander, clove, light banana/bubblegum, grassy hops, floral, biscuit, Herbes de Provence.
FLAVOR: Upfront the nose is echoed with moderate flavours of citrusy pithy pomelo/grapefruit, Meyer lemon, satsuma orange zest, white peach, asian pear, green peppercorn, coriander, clove, light banana/bubblegum, grassy hops, floral, biscuit, Herbes de Provence. Fruity/yeasty earthiness, minimal bitterness from the hops, but the yeasty flavors linger quite nicely.
MOUTHFEEL: Fairly high carbonation and light-to-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, dry, and moderately grainy/bready/creamy balanced mouthfeel.
IMPRESSION: An awesome session saison, very enjoyable and refreshingly easy to drink – slightly more delicate aromas and flavours than one might expect in a saison these days.
Santé mes amis!
