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

Bomber from Spirits Red Bank. Poured a far darker brown then I was expecting, medium brown body that is slightly murky with an average to smaller off white foamy head. Aroma of bread soaked in chardonnay, some grapes and a hint of nut. Medium bodied with average to stronger carbonaton and a lingering fruity taste. Flavor is very much like the aroma with lots of wine flavors and grains followed by fruity grapes and slight nutts. Solid beer.

Hazy golden amber. Fruit citrus and other light fruits, mild spice and caramel malts. Sweet caramel fruit with some light tartness. Feels a little thick and creamy for the style. One of the better I’ve had from Lakefront.

(22oz bomber bottled August 2010) cloudy gold-orange with a ring/film of fine white bubbles. Nose of spices, grains of paradise, banana extract. Taste of grains of paradise, spicy kick, rotten banana, umami. Some flaws here, very earthy linger and astringent in general.

Bottle.
Pours a thick, rich cheddar orange with a nose of sweet floral biscuit. Flavor is raisin bread with a light cherry-sugar dusting. Yeasty finish. Thick on the tongue but dissolves into a tingly film. Pretty tasty.

22oz bottle. 2011 maybe? cloudy brownish caramel colored beer with a small white head. nose is fruity with red apple and some toffee notes. flavors of juicy pears and red apples with a lot of buttery toffee flavored malts. almost full bodied but still quite easily quaffable. odd bitterness in finish, but eventually goes away. pretty solid all around.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
22 oz. bomber that pours a deep orange-amber, eggshell colored medium head. Aroma of apple, earth, crackers, some dark bread malts. Pretty tasty. Mild creaminess to the body. Light, leafy bitterness in the finish. Not really a standout ale but certainly a good try from Lakefront. I’m glad they’re making strides.

Murky copper with and Indian curry nose to it. Surprisingly sessionable with enough balance of spices and malt oomph to make it quite decent. Leaves a wee glow inside. Quite nice really.
