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.

Dark cloudy orange appearance. Fruity and yeasty nose. Spritzy body, fruit and yeast, nary a hint of smoke, i don’t get it, I’ve never tasted any smoke in this beer. Too spritzy.

Nice easy drinking beer. Nothing wrong with it. Didn’t really do anything for me however.

I loved the flavor of this beer. It was almost smokey. Very crisp start and excellent finish.

So I’m back in Ann Arbor, temporarily out of beer exile, and able to find cool beers again. I’ve been anxious to add to my extremely limited smoked experience, so this seemed like a natural to bring to last night’s homecoming party for me. However, it’s a whole lot different than the Bell’s 5000 that comprises the other half of my smoked repetoire. This one is Unibroue belgian - spicy yeast and lively carbonation, very lightly accented with wiffs of ash. It’s pretty delicate and ephemeral - interesting, but not overly exciting.

Fruity in smell and taste very tart. Light brown with lighter head. Nice spicy taste. I cant really taste anything smokey or smell it for that matter. I would get this beer again though

Light brown under a small sized medium lasting white head. Typical Unibroue. I would put it with Blanche de Chambly and La Maudite as my top three from this brewery. Excellent companion for trucking HWY 10 out of Montreal to New Hampshire.

Was there smoke in there? It’s less spectacular than the typical Unibroue offering.

Lots of little bubbles. Very pleasant beer. Good taste. Bollocks if it’s smoked. That Rauchenfelser was smoked, this one has not even been near a fire. It’s got a hind of Belgium in it. Good Ale taste and viscousity.

To me this brew had sort of a whiskey taste to it which made it interesting. Good as always (from unibroue).

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2002
Milky gold brown under a small sized medium lasting white head. Thin floral hops aroma when cold, very faint smokey and roasted malt as it warms. Medium mouth filling lively palate. Light bitter hoppy and spicey (ginger?) start. Hints of maltier grainy sour mash whiskey middle, and stronger fruity nectar honey finish. Slightly drier clean aftertaste. Not what I expected for a smoked style as I didn’t pick up any smoked character in the flavours.
