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

Hazy amber orangish color medium tan head lingers a bit some mild lacing... Notes of orange and sweet malts in the aroma... Aroma and flavor don’t match at all... Boring borderline sweet mess malty... Fairly spicy with a mild hint of pepper... Medium to medium full bodied

ben4321 (6144) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/29/11

Aroma: The nose has some grassy notes, hints of fruit, toast, pepper, and other spices
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden-orange color with an off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is light-medium sweet, some fruity notes, yeast/toast and spice flavors mostly
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a fairly soft mouthfeel that has a light stickiness to it
Overall Impression: I thought this was a rather solid and drinkable Biere de Garde. All of the components are well-enough made, though they are all pretty subtle. Still though, I thought this one was pretty successful, and it made for a rather drinkable offering. Had the ABV been low enough, this could easily have been a nice session beer, which speaks pretty well to how well-hidden the alcohol is in this one. I enjoyed this one.
