RAFTMAN WHISKEY MALT ALE

Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec

  • 5.5% ABV, 15.5 IBU’s
  • This beer is produced to recognize the rivermen and lumberjacks of Québec in the 19th century who finished their day with Ale and Whiskey.
  • Brownish orange coloured ale, with a light soapy head, that subdues rather quickly.
  • Highly carbonated, bubbles feel pleasantly sharp against the tongue.
  • Has a very strong yeasty aroma and flavour, which one comes to expect when opening any offering from Unibroue.
  • It has a slight banana and nutmeg flavour, but the smokey whiskey malt goes undetected on the palate.
  • I find it has gotten rather mundane tasting different Unibroue beers because they seem to all have the same flavour profile. They are all yeasty and over poweringly sweet. It is almost like that is the base flavour for all of their beers, but some have just a tiny tweak to make it something else. Overall I have not been pleased lately with Unibroue beers, a brewery that I loved so much several years ago. I hope something comes along soon that can change this impression for me, but for now Unibroue and I will be taking a break.
