Appearance: Clear golden-amber with a medium mostly lasting off-white head and good lacing.

Overall: Tasty Amber Ale with a decent malt depth and good drinkability. Balance is good as well.
On tap at the brewpub. Nice clear amber colored pour with thick super lacy white foam. Aroma is grainy, light peppery rye, spicy, nice toasted and earthy malt notes. Taste is semi sweet, toasty, spicy roasted malt notes. Palate is light bodied with nice carbonation. Good. punkska101 (2194) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2009

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Had this one at Festival Bières & Saveurs 2007. Was simply called “Rousse” and not “Rousse Goût” as it currently appears here. I’ll assume it is the same. Soft caramel, toasted bread, faint fruity notes, light smoke touch, a little sweet, timid hops, not much bitterness here, pleasant fluffy body. Just your basic generic brewpub amber ale. Nothing offensive, nothing to admire either. Ratebeer description mentions that it is brewed with maple syrup. ?? Hmm, as far as I’m concerned there was as much maple syrup in there as there is actual Frost Glaciers in the Frost Glacier Freeze Gatorade Mart (211) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Sur place 19/05/2007. Arôme très sucré, définitivement sirop d’érable, moins présent de malt caramel. Couleur brun pâle, cuivrée, claire. Mousse compacte qui forme un lacet et trace le verre. Goût de sirop d’érable bien soutenue, sans être trop sucré, peu d’amertume, boisé. Corps un peu mince, effervescence faible. Bonne bière à l’érable, et on sait que c’est assez difficile à trouver.

Bright amber color, with a beige head, crisp biscuity malt nose, with a toffeeish accent, with a fruity raspberry yeasty, faint caramel note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with toasted, biscuity malts, wildberries fruitiness, mainly raspberry, with a toffee accent, hint of grassiness hop, leading towards a fruity malty finish.

Dark amber color, a sweet taste of caramel but also of hops. The aroma is also a mix of hops and malt. No head to speak of, all in all a good beer. Quevillon (3196) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2006
Bu sur place (4 oz). Rousse pale, comme le thé, peu de collet. arome d’houblon légé, un peu caramelisé. Goût très fumé, un peu malté. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Robe cuivrée très claire sans mousse. Arômes timides. Saveurs de malt fumé et de céréales. Ungstrup (38986) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a collapsing beige head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of berries, where raspberries and strawberries stand out.
