ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 8, 2005
On draught at the brewpub, 6/3/2005 with the Kuhnhenns, tiggmtl and Muzzlehatch. Deep orange, copper-amber collor, with a off-white head that recedes to cover. Large amounts of lacing traverse the sides. Flowery to the nose, with cherry and apple blossoms, bits of sweet toffee. Begins spicy for flavor, with hazelnuts, caramel, cherries and some sort of dry spice, perhaps just the yeast or hops? Moderately sweet overall, with a medium body. No alcohol noted and the mouthfeel is soft, tingly and substantial; couldnt ask for more there. Finishes with some clove, bitter orange, bits of wood and earth. Quebecois rousse beers dont have to be boring! LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2006
Amber color, it has a sweet taste of caramel and anaroma of oranges and spices. You can just taste some bitterness. This is a good and real amber ale. Taster at Bieres et Saveurs Chambly 06. Whatup14 (2004) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
En fût à la brasserie. Couleur brun pâle, mousse blanche. Arôme de caramel, d’érable. Goût de caramel légèrement brûlé, de malt. Carbonation faible, corps moyen. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Pours a clear deep copper amber with a nice, lightly-lacing off-white head. Aroma is semi-sweet, toasty and enticing. Body is full and malty (at least for an amber) with a good, crisp bitter finish. This is a very nice, extremely drinkable and enjoyable amber that I wish I could keep in my fridge for occasional refreshment. Lubiere (13905) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Opalescent red amber ale with a resilinet lacing moka head. Malty aroma reminiscent of brewing day with nice nutty notes and cocoa. Very nice rich malt with good hops in finish, a bit sweet and roasted caramel. Rich bodied.

Largish sample at the brewpub with the Kuhnhenns, tiggmtl and ClarkVV. Reddish-pink, a blush sunset, unfiltered thick with huge lacing and lasting smallish head...tons of cherry in the nose, licorice and green herbs, wow it’s floral and expressive like very few amber ales I know...cherries, tobacco, oaky and piney logs crackling near a fire in the odd and tingly body, a bit of late grapes...beautiful and definitely a cut above the typical Quebec, or American example.

Bright amber colour. Nutty aroma with caramel and hints of crystal malt. Sweet, clean, with hints of bread crust, nuts and tobacco. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2007
Copper in colour, thin beige coloured head, average retention, some lacing. The aroma is lightly malty - mainly caramel, some bread, some floral hop balance. The flavour is hoppy (floral, herbs and fresh grass), very light orange citrus, caramel sweetness, toasty. Moderatly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, bitter and floral. Very refreshing, excellent lingering finish, bursting with flavour.
