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.

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.

reebtogi (4522) - 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.

(22oz bottle) Purchased at Hillside. Pours a quick dissipating white frothy head atop a sediment filled red body. Nose is kinda spicy, warm alcohol and almost banana. Good malt base and smooth body. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

zoucrew102 (732) - - JUN 10, 2013
Bomber. Strong malty aroma with hints of caramel and also orange and some citrus. Pours orange with a decent head, but it fades quickly. Taste is very sweet caramel malt with some orange and citrus undertones. Finishes dry with just a bit of hops at the very end. Good summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
