daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, - JAN 3, 2008
Pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. The nose is grassy with a bit of candyish sweet malt and sugar. Iron notes in the nose as well. The body is a cardboard cookie with sugar sprinkled on top. Sweet is all there is, too sweet even for a cognac beer. Not good.

VDuquerroux (1446) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A sparkling scarlett beer with a medium white head ; average retention. First, candy with red berries aroma, then ros wine. Medium to heavy sweet, acid note, light refreshing. Light body, thin oily texture, soft carbonation, sweet candy finish. Overall, first, I was thinking : "sugary sweet, no hop, no hope", then to be honest, even if its light, 1-dimensional and very sweet, well... very drinkable with a pleasant candy and ros touch.

erickok (5688) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle named Rubis, but the same beer. Looks good, admittedly, but it stops there at the Ruby red looks. Artificial sweetener and chemical Strawberry. Candy, Yuck. Taste is horrible, like a poorly made watery soda. This is ridiculous. Im sorry, but really? Just add wine to beer if youre so curious, but why the extra natural aroma? Did not finish. (33cl bottle from a mid-France supermarket, on the way back home)

Metalchopz (3244) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Originally rated April 2007. Just in at the LCBO, this beer mixed with Pineau des Charentes. As much as I like all type of alcohol, dessert wines are not in my tops. Still, I think this is a great idea (made in Cognac, France). Colour is golden clear with some rust in it. Very carbonated and head is creamy, huge, with good retention leaving wavy lacing. The nose is bready with a slight touch of perfume. Very smooth mouthfeel with just a pinch of stick to it. Sweet taste, but not as sweet as I thought this would be. Sweeter on the lips, than in the flavours. Some mild bread, honey and grains. Not much aftertaste, disappearing quickly. Overall, pretty interesting and worth trying for sure.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle, this one grew on me as I drank it more but I didnt like it at the beginning, Overall it wasnt bad, it had a strange after taste, it was kind of like blueberrys or some sort of berry, the beer was a golden colour, with a lager like taste with the berry backround

Bottle. Poured hazy light brown with thick head. Very harsh aroma. Flavour is kind of sweet with a hint of dark fruits. Finishes sweet.

grandgenie (259) - val-des-monts, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2009
Dgust avec french tickler le 4 mai 2007. Clear golden poor with lots of effervescence and a thin foamy beige head. Aromas of cask, caramelised malts, the sweetness from the pineau des charentes and a slight twist of ginger. Way to sweet, very syrupy... almost artificial... 99% sweet, 1% other... serious lack of balance in this beer. Very soggy tasting and fad.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2008
Golden ale with a thick white head. Lightlysweet caramel aroma, notes of oxidation and apple puree. In mouth, a sweetish corn adjunct malt with apple juice, cloying sweetness in beginning. Light bodied. Bottle from LCBO about 1 yr old.

DerWeg (1611) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2008
33 c; bottle. LCBO. Soft golden bubbly stuff with kind of a nondescript sweet taste. Light and juice-like flavors emerge. Aroma some slightly metallic hops. Overall decent but no biggie.
