Bue côte à côte avec la blonde directement au pub. Les céréales grillées valent à eux seules la gorgée mais en plus des parcelles d’agrumes et d’épices s’invitent à la fête. Solide et rafraîchissante.

La première que je déguste de ce brasseur et j’espère que ce n’est que le début ;) Bien maltée, riche, j’aime bien.

solidfunk (3886) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Amber with good head and lacing. Nice dose of slight funk in aroma with some noble type hops. Decent for style, certainly. On tap at brewpub in Montreal, opening night.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled bronzeish amber with a resilient beige head, Aroma is herbal, earthy, and caramel malt. Flavor is malty, caramel, and a touch of...brown penny? Finish is herbal and earthy, bordering on sandy. Lingering herbal hops, copper and spices. Medium body, average carbonation. Pretty good!

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Un peu comme sa soeur blonde, l’Ostalgia Rousse a cette carbonatation très basse qui peut ennuyer quelque peu, mais ici aussi elle possède de très belles qualités qui contrebalancent ce petit manquement. Houblons sucrés, saveurs plutôt puissantes pour le style, originalité et qualité générale la font s’élever au-dessus de la mêlée. Une des très bonnes représentantes du genre.

cfrancis (2324) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small light beige head. Aroma is caramel and sweetness from the malts. Taste is a great mix of german bready malts, caramel with a small hop finish. Doesn’t really bring me back to Dusseldorf but very good alt. I’d love to do a side by side.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Aroma: Very slight accents of cereal and caramel with a bit of barley sugar. Nose not sticking out much. Appearance: Amber / brown, slightly hazy, average thickness, density and lasting for head, with a very nice lacing. Taste: Attack is showing a good mix of cereal and hop. Bitterness is settling more at the end and is lasting in mouth for a long time. Second zip is showing more grain with little notes of caramel. Finish is hoppy with a long lasting bitterness. A well balanced beer without any extravagant flavor but simple and pleasant. Would make a good everyday beer.
