The event presented each guest with four 5-oz. flights of Unibroue beer. From the flights, the guest selected one for an 8-oz. glass. You also got one appetizer as well as a restaurant signature Barcelona Burger.
We met with a Unibroue brewmaster, Harvey Mayorga, who explained the flavor profiles behind each beer. "It's ale across the board. From left to right we have; Blonde de Chambly with a 5.0% alcohol by volume, The Maudite, which is a spicy red ale at 8.0% alcohol by volume, La Fin du Monde at 9.0% alcohol by volume, and finally the Terrible, with dark wine notes, at 10.5% alcohol by volume."
Each flight was filled with the most refined beer we've ever had the pleasure of tasting. The Blonde being one of our favorites for its sweet honey notes and lemongrass scent. We selected it as our choice for 8 oz. It went perfectly with our Chef burger- a monster angus burger covered in creamy goat cheese, arugala, pancetta chips, caramelized onion and a smooth garlic aoli. The Chef's burger and Blonde de Chambly were a match made in heaven.
The atmosphere inside Angelique was casual and relaxed, with waitresses and staff professional yet extremely approachable. Angelique is the kind of place where you can sit back and laugh with a friend over an amazing beer and genuinely cut loose, and their fantastic burger will keep us coming back for more.
