COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
2004-2009 vintages - 5.8% abv
2010-later vintages - 7.2% abv

11/12/13 trade from Jamil. Grapes and caramel scent with a copper pour, low head, and a medium cloying feel taste is toffee, malt, vinous, and slightly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yeast, funk, slightly sour bier de garde. Earthy and malt notes. Not my favorite of this style.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - OCT 29, 2013
Bomber. Hazy light amber, egg head. Nose is quite sweet... dried cantaloupe, toffee, spice. Flavour is white raisin, caramel, dusty. Finish is drier than the taste. Nothing mind-blowing, but fine.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Nose is sweet orange, caramel, grapefruit. Flavour is the same with a grainy feel and some spice. Alcohol is apparent, warm and inviting.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Big bottle, shared round the table @ the brewery. Medium bronze body, lively white head. Sweet honey and soft esters, no real hop character. A milder belgian style ale. Kind of "meh" about this one.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Pours translucent copper with a small head. I’ve had beera that taste just like this but cant quite put my finger on it. First taste is feint with sweet maltiness. Finishes with bitter hoppiness. Nothing special imo.

Dark caramel amber pour, nice carbination, medium creamy tan head, lasting. Alcohol, dark fruit, caramel, toffee. Medium body. Sweet. Spices. A little booze. No bitterness. Creamy and flavorful. Maybe too sweet.

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and other light fruits with some light cereal grains. Taste is a grainy malt and light fruit sweetness with some light citrus hop bitterness present. There is also some yeast that comes through in the finish. Medium bodied with some mild carbonation. A pretty decent French brew from the good ol’ USA.
