With its gleaming copper colour and caramel malt aromas, Boréale Rousse has a full, mellow taste with subtle bitter notes that give it a rich, distinctive character - an ale that grows on you with each sip.

On draft at Biere et Compagne in Montreal. Well made, well carbonated, copper colored brew. Very quaffaable.

Was pleasantly surprised to try this tasty ale on my first trip to Montreal; the bar we went to was called McLean’s Pub on Peel, and it had a nice, laid-back atmosphere for a couple of travelers on a Tuesday night. Loved the caramel nestled somewhere in the flavor of this beer, and its dark amber color. Well worth picking up, if you ask me.

A Belgian-stle ale that comes in a macro bottle and has a picture of a polar bear. Go figure. Pours a very clear amber, sparse head. A toasty aroma. Body is thin. Slight hops in the finish. Average all the way around.

Dark amber color with a medium head. Interesting aroma. Good taste with some caramel touch and a dry finish. A very good beer.

Nothing special... Lacks a bit of personality but this is the kind of stuff you're not ashamed to say you drink everyday once you decide to leave the big corporate brews.

Radek Kliber (6573) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 5, 2004
Amber white head. Aroma of light sweet malt, with hints of alcohol. Creamy texture, nice malt finish. Some mineral feel, not to complex but nether less drinkable.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Wood and malt nose, copper, with a small tan head. Malt flavoured with some woody notes. Good mouthfeel, nice dry nutty finish. Tasty, but doesn't fit the style. Thank You Radek.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2004
On tap in Quebec City. The mellowness and subtelty as described were accurate, but the finish was also tainted with a burned wood touch. Overall, quite average. Nothing belgian about the malts in this one.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
Sweet burnt caramel malt aroma with a hint of hops. Amber-copper body with thin white head and marginal lacing. Bitterness throughout the flavour including some roasted malt notes in the finish. Caramel malts are shy but apparent. Body is thin and carbonation quite high. This is a decent everyday beer and is excellent on a hot summer evening... Good session beer - it's easy to drink many of these despite the high carbonation. If I have any complaint, it's only that the flavour is so short-lived. Don't know why this is categorized as a belgian ale - it's more like an English brown ale. Bottle.

Eructoblaster (3222) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2004
Nice dark copper beer. The brew is OK but fades too quickly. Interesting caramel and scotch nose that unfortunately lacks some punch. Well bodied and balanced flavor. You can taste the bitterness from the beginning up to the end. Good and less expansive alternative to Bass or Newcastle.
