Like a Northwest France strong summer ales - quenching and refreshing, but robust enough to match the full-bodied fare of a brasserie. Rendezvous Ale is a hybrid of malty richness and enough hops acidity (Brewer’s Gold, Tradition) to cut through the strong flavors of roasted lapin au moutarde, or a burly beef steak fries.

Out of the bottle it looks like an unsedimented bitter. Taste wise, I’m not really familiar with biere de garde, this one tastes similar to a bitter or golden ale, very good thirst quencher.

crossovert (11345) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
650ml bomber. It pours n interesting reddish amber color wit a big, foamy off-white head. The head sticks for a while and recedes with some nice lacing. The smell has a nice almost peachy sweet fruitness. There is a nice bit of yeast character in this one as well. It is a bit like spiced peaches in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of malt, it is fresh and caramally. It has some fruitiness and sweetness come over along with the yeast character. It also has a nice bit of earthy hops. Another good one form Lakefront. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-07-2010 05:03:09

arminjewell (9253) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Pours hazy orange/red with white head. Aroma has notes of sourdough, dark fruit, slight caramel and toffee. Taste is slightly yeasty, some sweet dark fruit, toffee, caramel, some sour note, a touch bitter. A bit odd flavors, but they add up well.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2011
20110312 Bomber from JC Buy Rite. Pretty beer, dark amber with a tall, creamy, lacing beige head. Aroma is strongly boozy with lots of crusty French bread notes, mildly soapy, raisin. Full, creamy body, well coating, mild bitterness barely peeks through late. Quite sweet and actually tending toward cloying. Not a quaffer. In fact, I barely wanted to finish half the bottle.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2011
This is a bomber from the 2010 vintage, drank in March, 2011. A light copper almost amber colored body with a dense yellowish khaki head. The nose is malty dough with some strawberries. There are also some earthy peanuts. The taste is peanuts and dough. There is also a little bit of spice like sweet ginger bread.

theisti (3882) - Kansas, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Shaker pint draft at the Coquette Cafe in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Pour is a hazed orange golden, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is floral, clove, some sweet honey. Taste is the sweet honey malt dominant up front, followed closely by a dry floral mineral earthiness. Palate is medium bodied, lower carboantion level. This hits the style well, though I am not a huge BdG guy. Regardless, tasty. I was surprised to learn this is a draft special for the Coquette. Given that fact, I was surprised they didn’t have a bit better glassware choice for the beer.

MrsUghsmash (24) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A cloudy orange beer with a little head. The smell is light hops and citrus with a little malt. I tasted molasses, but it was fruity and refreshing. A great beer to enjoy at the lovely beer garden at Lakefront.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle pours hazy orange-gold with a white head. Aroma shows sweet grain, bubblegum, lemongrass, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of saltine crackers and dough. Overall body is light to moderate and somewhat astringent.
