Gold medal winner in 1995 at the Chicago Beverage Testing Institute. It is brewed with whiskey malt in honour of the raftmen, rivermen and lumberjacks of Québec of the 19th century who finished their day with Ale and Whiskey.

Dogbrick (11323) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Sample at Beverage Source. The beer is a cloudy dark amber color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, grain and spices. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal yeast, smoked malt and fruit. The finish is peat malt and fruity yeast. Decent overall.

ttoadee (1269) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Cloudy light brown pour, finger of white head. Nose is slightly smokey and yeasty. Lightly bitter. Middle is medium roasted malt with a touch of cedar smoke. Finish plays the smoke again. Nice, but...

Fantomasus (291) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw copper with a just off white head. Aroma is faint but fresh: caramel, hay, floral hops, herbs, basement aromas, banana, butterscotch, and clove. Medium body thin feel, lively carbonation, with a lingering bitter finish. It’s good.

Hazy orange with a tiny creme head. Fruity, spicy and peppery with malt sugar. A little bitter with a fruity/banana aftertaste. Thin beer with an average carbonation, average finish.

MarkoNm (2298) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy amber color, with a slightly off-white head that settles slowly. Malty aroma, some notes of caramel and very faint smokey aroma. The taste is malty, some smoked notes in there, with some yeasty taste later on. Not my favourite although still ok.

mathieuc (3249) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruity esters, light wheat flour and even lighter smoke. Taste is that of a standard belgian pale ale, fruity and malty. It isn’t cloying, though, and lightly bitter. Bananas and pears. Some metallic notes. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Mouthfeel is slightly thin at times but nothing disturbing. Overall a fair belgian ale, but where is the smoke?!

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy amber brown, head that reduces to little wisps, no lace. Taste is carbonation edged malt, just a bit of smoke, and a bit of bourbon. All moves straight to a watery short finish. A little too understated to qualify as Unibroue. Not recommended.
