A hazed amber gold ale with a thick creamy light mocha head. In aroma, nice fruity caramel malt with coriander and nice herbaceous hops, piney and orangey. In mouth, a nice smooth Belgian IPA with fruity malt, piney floral hops, orange pulp, very nice.

Appearance - pours an opaque light orange colour with an absolutely thick, off-white head. Nose - at first I was getting some oats and maltiness, but that soon gives way to a light citrusy tone. Not a particularly strong smelling beer. You’ll have to inhale deeply to get anything. Palate - getting some lemon and lime, and definitely some orange peel bitterness on the swallow. Overall - it’s not strong tasting and certainly not strong smelling. A decent beer.

Une bouteille de 600ml de la batch 3332 embouteillée le 11 novembre 2013. Bière dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de houblon et de levure belge. Une bouche épicée avec du blé, de malt dorée. Un peu trop sucrée à mon goût. Une finale amère avec une touche de levure.

Cette Rudolphus VI est ambrée et possède une mousse qui offre tout un spectacle. Embouteillée le 11 novembre 2013, elle exhibe des parfums de malts roux, de banane, de pêche, d’orange et de sueur. Des effluves d’épices se confirment au fil de la dégustation. En bouche, l’attaque demeure celle des houblons. Ces derniers sont bien amérisants mais aussi bien aromatiques avec la présence de fruits, d’herbes et de fleurs et de poivre. Au palais, c’est un liquide bien vivant qui s’installe. Les bulles sont bien actives et le corps est légèrement huileux. En arrière-goût, les malts réussissent une mince percée dans ce qui me semble être une affaire franchement menée par les cultivars. Une maudite belle proposition.

Beau’s Rudolohus VI Wow what a smell. Immediately upon opening the room was filled with fruit scents. Lots of citrus. Really beautiful looking pour. Lots of foamy head over a slightly hazy copper. Tastes as good as it smells. Its like a mix of Pale ALe and Belgian Tripple. Not overy bitter. A touch flowery. Mostly sweet fruits. Not strong though like a fruit beer or shandy. The kind of fruit tastes yo get from hops. Really good brew.

Bière jaune orangée sur laquelle persiste un bon tapis de mousse couleur pêche, mi-mince et relativement translucide. En nez : arômes complexes alliant les malts caramel et les houblons et la levure fruités (fraises, mangues, pêches, etc.). En bouche : le fruité domine d’abord la première lampée, avant de laisser la place à une amertume herbacée, et le tout se termine sur des malts blonds. Aurait pu être un brin plus agressive, surtout sur les houblons, mais elle possède une magnifique complexité, des saveurs séduisantes et une originalité rafraîchissante pour ce style un peu alambiqué.

shaynsawchuk (360) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2013
600 mL bottle. Pours hazy golden with a thick white head of foam. Aromas of mango, papaya, melon, orange, biscuit like malt, pine and a hint of yeasty spice. Flavour offers a hint of sweetness followed by a massive bitter hop bite. Hugely carbonated and waxy/sticky on the palate. Long lingering aftertaste of hop goodness. Good stuff.

Peaches and Mandarin oranges feature strongly along with icing sugar and herbal and earthy notes. Hazy tan body is topped by a generous and lasting white head that leaves some lace. Fruit flavours are up front. Really nice yeast character with herbal and spicy notes. Bitterness is not all that pronounced and sweetness lingers a bit. Medium body is quite dry with really nice, expansive, soft-bubbled carbonation. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature and allowed to warm. Bottle purchased at the LCBO in December 2013.
