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

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2012
Bottled@SBWF2012. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, earth, mild spices, farmyard as well as some slight spicyness. Flavour is very similar in a rather sweet way. A lot sweeter than most of the BdG I have had from France.

omhper (25155) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2012
Bottled at SBWF. Hazy amber, small head. Caramelly herbal aroma. Sweet with medium-full body and soft mouthfeel. Fudge and butter with syrupy sweetness and low bitterness. Cloying and bold with very low drinkability.

22 ounce bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar, thanks very much! This was pretty straightforward, caramel malt flavor and not much else.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
A cloudy orange pour with a tall white head. Opens with a light fruitiness on the nose. Quite a bit of bread with a touch of caramel, butterscotch, and cardboard. Moderate yeast aroma, maybe a little fruit. The flavor is fairly sweet and malty as well. Lots of bread, caramel, and toffee with some of the same cardboard notes that were present on the nose. Not really a fan of this one.

bhensonb (15236) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bomber from Malt & Vine. 7.2% Pours amber with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aroma of slightly earthy roast malt. Med body. Flavor is malty with some earthy bitterness. Keeps oscillating sweet/not sweet. With a little time my mouth starts to pucker. Good drink, not sure it’s spot on for style.
