UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Pours a reddish copper color with a medium offwhite head. Good aroma of caramel and toasted malt. The flavor is very malt-oriented, some caramel, some toasted and some smoked, interesting. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 Rating for the new Rousse version: A generous toastiness in the nose is joined by round caramel once tasted, a maltiness balanced out by earthy hoppiness and its decent bitterness. The end result is able-bodied, drinkable and quite flavorful for what is supposed to be their mass marketed "Rousse" offering. Should give Boréale Rousse a fun for its money in the party-going crowd, if proper marketing is done. HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle. Red color, medium head. Aromas of malts, a bit of yeast and grain. Some ffarmhouse like character, in addition to a dominant malt profile. Quite a decent beer. JorisPPattyn (10004) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2009
Fiery-foxy, deep copper colour with a dense, creamy, cream-coloured head that proves quite stable. Very chocolatey aroma; chocolate "truffles" with cacaopowder, bark- or rootspices, sweetish, toffee. Bitter first impression with background toffee and roasted chocolate again. Some amber/roasted malts obvious. Very carbonated MF, rather light body, some slickness. Watery finish. I like the onset of this beer very much - a more-bitter-than-usual Vienna. Unfortunately, the bitterness fades quickly away, revealing more and more the inherent emptiness. Still - not bad. <i> Thanks for the collecting job, I&I </i> EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2009
Bouteille de 341 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur cuivrée-rougeâtre et un col de mousse modeste et durable. Au nez on respire des arômes de caramel grillé, de malt fumé et de houblon floral. En bouche le corps est moyen et bien crémeux avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de malt caramel, de grain grillé, de sucre d’orge avec une amertume croustillante qui s’exprime longtemps en étalement avec le caramel. Une excellente rousse.

341ml brown bottle 09-08-28 : Deep amber, close to brown in color, solid head on the pour but quickly disappear. Some lacing. Pleasant nose, a touch of caramel, dark fruits. Medium body, some roasted note in the finish low bitterness, some spices (hops) Nice session beer. DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle as part of the mixed-case offered by LTM. Pours a beautiful hazy deep red-orange with a dense tan head that leaves fine early lace. Nutty caramel aroma and flavour, some toast and soft marzipan notes in the finish. Mild bitterness. A very nice vienna. sseb69 (1909) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Belle couleur brune-rousse claire. Arôme sucrée de caramel et un peu de houblon floral. Goût de caramel, malt et un peu de noisettes. Très bonne bière. reebtogi (6277) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
341mL bottle from variety pack poured a nice amber color with a modest white head which settled down to spots of lacing. Aromas of lightly toasted malts and some floral hops. Taste is caramel sweetness with a modest hop bitterness in the end. Palate is fine with light to medium body and adequate carbonation. piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2005 Light copper in colour with a medium amount of carbonation. The aromas are mainly caramel malts, with a bit of herbal hops and a lagerish kick on the back end. Flavors are those of caramel and toasted malts with a bit of husky grains creaping in on the finish. Solid and drinkable, but unspectacular. Thanks Lubiere!
