This one isn't smoky at all. Nice cloudy "glowing" deep orange color. Good creamy head that you'd expect from Unibroue. Aroma and flavor are very "bready/yeasty". Certainly Unibroue's most "mellow" brew. I am not too excited about this one though.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Cloudy amber and highly carbonated, Raftman's got definite Belgian (spicy) influences in the aroma and flavor. It's got great complexity for a 5.5% beer. Another good one from Unibroue.

Cloudy amber-brown coloured beer with a medium head. Weak taste. Only a hint of a whiskey flavour is detectable.

nice coloured beer, made with whiskey malts, but these are a little to far away for me, but nevertheless good beer, ans it goes very well wth smoked salmon indeed

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Cloudy amber color, with a very thin head. Smell is slightly sweet, but kinda like a musty basement. Smoked flavor is there, but combined with a belgian-like sweetness. I'm not a big fan of smoked beers in general, but this was a pleasant surprise.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Sweet amber color, little head. The nose is nice and kind of an earthy tartness. Rather sweet smell, but has something similar to a chalky smell. The smokey smell is indeed tamed more than prefered. Palate is standard for unibroue's except for the more crisp smoked feel.

Good head and smooth body. The smoky flavours were definitely muted, but the malt shines through. Could use more of a kick.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Beer pours (in Corsendonk glass) a cloudy, medium orange-golden with generous white puffy head. Aroma is a light grassy-straw. Flavor is smooth, woody citrus with light straw ending. Nothing bad, but nothing memorable about this one. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
