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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours a thick, rich cheddar orange with a nose of sweet floral biscuit. Flavor is raisin bread with a light cherry-sugar dusting. Yeasty finish. Thick on the tongue but dissolves into a tingly film. Pretty tasty.

22oz bottle. 2011 maybe? cloudy brownish caramel colored beer with a small white head. nose is fruity with red apple and some toffee notes. flavors of juicy pears and red apples with a lot of buttery toffee flavored malts. almost full bodied but still quite easily quaffable. odd bitterness in finish, but eventually goes away. pretty solid all around.

HonkeyBra (3849) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
22 oz. bomber that pours a deep orange-amber, eggshell colored medium head. Aroma of apple, earth, crackers, some dark bread malts. Pretty tasty. Mild creaminess to the body. Light, leafy bitterness in the finish. Not really a standout ale but certainly a good try from Lakefront. I’m glad they’re making strides.

bozoNZ (739) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 24, 2011
Murky copper with and Indian curry nose to it. Surprisingly sessionable with enough balance of spices and malt oomph to make it quite decent. Leaves a wee glow inside. Quite nice really.

BritAlesRule (215) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2011
Nose of faint caramel apple, roasted nuts and dank basement. Taste is bitter fruitiness and nuts. More yeast than malt. Palette is medium and unoffending, but I am just not a fan of this style. This is perhaps my fourth Biere de Garde and probably the best so far.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. 7.2% Pours amber with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma of slightly earthy roast malt. Med body. Flavor is malty with some earthy bitterness. Keeps oscillating sweet/not sweet. With a little time my mouth starts to pucker. Good drink, not sure it’s spot on for style.
