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.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
(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

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with medium foamy head. Aromas of apricots, caramel, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of strawberries, burnt sugar, roasted malts, and resin. Somewhat acidic but quite nice.

Chudwick (2819) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bomber - pours cloudy amber/orange with off white head and small lacing. Nose is sugar, caramel, and hay. Flavor adds overly fermented wild fruit. Big body and quite tasty. Sweet and a little tart. To Summer!

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

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of oranges, caramel, and sweet fruits. Very sweet. Taste of ripened oranges, sweet caramel, and a slightly roasted malt. A bit of acidity but not much. A bit bland. Nothing exciting. Semi-dry finish.

~7 ounce sample glass from a bomber bottle at the Milwaukee brewery. Bright orange-red, sparkling appearance, some white foam, lots of bubble movement. Aroma is fresh, floral, malty, and a little wheat-ish. Taste is something sweet and fruity like strawberries, pears, plus a wit character involving yeast and corn husk. Thin bodied, a tad watery, lively carbonation. Overall, a fine beer, albeit a bit plain. It’s a good choice for those looking for something light, unimposing and refreshing.

drdisque (756) - Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2013
From a bomber bought at the brewery. Aroma is fairly hoppy. Flavor is sweet, bright and doughy with a good touch of spice but not too much. Clean finish. Very solid beer. Best Lakefront product I’ve had.

Thanks to Ian for the bomber. Hazy amber pour. Rustic malty candy and toffee aroma. Taste is clean crisp malt with candy sweetness and hints of toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
