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.

Looks nice (clear, copper ale with a small, fizzy, white head). Brewed with pure barley malt, but tastes just like all the other cheap Canadian and U.S. macro swill. At least it didn’t give me a headache, but don’t bother.

Clear reddish brown with little head. Citrusy aroma with some caramel maltiness. Medium body with a sweet malty flavour balanced by hops and a little hops bitterness.

341ml brown bottle. A nice looking beer- long lasting, full off white head, dark amber/orange body, mildly carbonated. A tinge of metallics in the aroma, but mostly caramel and some hops. Noticeable hop bitterness, lots of caramel malt, slightly syrupy body. A nice surprise seeing as I didn’t enjoy their "Doree" too much.

This is the first time I take a Boreale Rousse on Tap and I must say I was surprised. It felt fresh, it felt good. The appearance was just as good as the bottle version: nice copper-orange color with white head. The aroma however was above average for this brewer: good bitterness with fresh hops and a bit of malt. I had to ask the waitress if she didn’t do a mistake!

Copper colour and a thick lasting white head. Caramel malt aroma along with some toffee. A rich fruitiness as well. Flavour is quite nice, malty and fruity, caramel, brown sugar, and light spice. Finish is not very bitter, malt dominated. Quite good, despite its simplicity.

Via trade with Lubiere and Capflu. Orange and clear, whitish head. Fruity nose, malty. Flavor is mostly malt, with a touch of hops. A little carmel. Not bad and rather drinkable.

Nice amber color, thin white head, nice lacing. Nice caramel aroma. Caramel flavor,bitter and sweet combination. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. This is the beer that convinced me to start drinking only craft brews, it’s somewhat less enjoyable than what I remember.

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.
