COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonally or sometimes just once a year, Altbier breweries in Dusseldorf will covertly brew special, stronger batches of their Alt, and share them with family, friends and regular patrons. Beau’s toasts this historical tradition with Festivale Plus, a stronger, bolder and oak-aged version of our internationally acclaimed summer seasonal beer, Festivale. Shhh -- it’s a secret!

AleRider78 (1451) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017
Rated Oct. 2013. Pours a large frothy, brownish head and has a clean amber/copper appearance. Thick lacing. Huge bready and toasty malt aromas with a bit of resin hops. Sort of a wood/oak smokey flavour. Some toasty and nutty malts with notes of breads and mild herbal hops. Slight spicy undertones and even a bit of the barley coming through. Warming sensation and mild astringent and tingling mouthfeel. Full bodied. Pretty good and easy to drink. Goes down pretty smooth.

Bouteille du Beaux frère. Draft de caramel,vanille,bois,quelques traces de foin,amandes,grain d’orge.,en bouche,le coté vanillier,est plus présent. l’aspect malté boisé très subtile. bref j’aime bien bonne rousse allemande,belle complexité acquis lors du vieillissement.Coté crémeux incroyable, très onctueux comme bière très bonne.(Bio en plus)

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep amber color alt with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of caramelized sugar and oak is stronger than I was expecting. Taste is also a mix of caramelized sugar with some oak notes which brings out a dry edge to this beer. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I am not sure the dry caramel malt notes, cereal notes and the oak notes were very well balanced together.

Bottle, from the LC, pours a nice amber, aroma is a hop, flavour is really nice and refreshing, a nice carmel bit of a punch, pretty tasty stuff.

dandeman (1063) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Aroma: Very malted nose, sugar cane, candy, burnt caramel, barley sugar. Good strength but fading rapidly. Appearance: Dark copper, clear, average thickness creamy head, long lasting. Not a lot of lacing. Taste: Attack is very malty, with notes of burnt caramel, Candi sugar with a hoppy and dry finish including notes of greenies and pepper. Perfect balance between malt and hop. Mouth feel shows a medium body and a thin delicate texture. Good flavor palette. very close to a barley wine except for body and bitterness. Pleasantly surprised. A delicious beer that will please both malt and hop fans.

czar (9412) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
pours dark golden with a nice light beige head, good retention and lacing. caramel, spices, molasses, bit of wood, dark red fruitiness, grassy-peppery, hint of sweetness. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, short but sharp grassy-oaky and slightly earthy finish. oaked alt it is - enjoyed it!

2.3
OntBeerDrinker (513) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
more like a maple red orange with carbination and some head. Fruity hoppy smell with a juicy malty smell some warmth and some of the oak barrel a bit. Heavy bodied taste the way t smells with maybe a little chocolate and some earthy bitterness that the more I drink some sips really show with some sweetness a bit. Can tell its a heavier and stronger beer in the taste or something no burn or water. Good but NOT great. Filling beer

3.4
pushkinwow (2895) - Ottawa, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
