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

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.

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.

Pours deep copper with a lasting, tan head. Smells of light fruit, dry pilsner malt, wildflowers, grassy. Tastes of pepper, tea, spicy, dry with some floral notes on the finish.

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

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.

650ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Golden amber colour with a sweet malt honey aroma. Lots of flavour and a good hit of alcohol.

Not a superb biere de garde, but better than serviceable. Its nice to see more American breweries trying their hand at the style. Saisonish in its appearance and dryness, but more sweet and fruity.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2004 Like all of Lakefront Brewery’s beers, this one lives up to the hype. The Roundezvous Ale is brewed especially for Coquette Cafe - a restaurant in downtown Milwaukee with some unbelievable food - and thus is only available (to my knowledge) on tap at Coquette. What about the beer? To start, it’s golden brown, almost like a Vienna or Lakefront’s own Riverwest Stein. On the other hand, it’s a little more robust and sweeter so that it can be a perfect match with Coquette’s food. When it hits the tounge, it’s very bright - lively and fizzy. Semi-sweet and a tad acidic, a fair amount of hops makes this brew dance in your mouth, and the finish leaves a smile on your face. To put it simply, it’s not like most beers out there, but at all stages of drinking the beer, you know you’re drinking a good brew. And, you’ll probably do it again, should you get that chance.

My first Biere de Garde. Vintage 2010, which means it has been aged a year, or it could be just a few months, but whatever. Taste is very refreshing, and very unfamiliar to me. New is always good.
