COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name Rousse de Brabant – ‘Brabant Russet’ – inevitably evokes John I, the most distinguished of the Dukes of Brabant, poet and knight, and a man whose reputation as a military and political strategist extended far and wide. No rival could get the better of him at tournaments, and his jousting was invariably accompanied by fabled festivities with plenty of liquid refreshment. But there’s a chink in every suit of armor, and in John’s case it was his constant need for money to fund his pursuit of the ladies. Among these was one whose flamboyant red hair particularly inflamed his passion, but who – alas! – resisted his advances. To win her over, he hit upon the idea of asking his master brewer to create a sweet, light ale with red highlights.

Thus was born the Rousse de Brabant, a beer not unlike the lady after whom it is named: bashful, disinclined to reveal its charms, yet once won ready to give itself with passion and generosity !

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle, 5% ABV
Amber color, creamy head. The aroma is reasonable, with caramel and gently roasted malts. But the flavor, with plenty of cabbage and vegetables, is far from being interesting.

3.3

Sampled from bottle @ Benzai’s final THT although MrHangover thinks it’s something else. Somewhat reddish color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, sweetness, slightly sugar, a touch of caramel or caramelised sugar. Decent body and carbonation.

Joint bill with Kraddel. Tasted @ Rampkrot. 2013 Vintage. Reddish amber, solid white sugar. Sweet sugar, candy, corn & herbal nose. Taste is plastic fruit, berries, herbal, corn,… Fizzy. Cheap rubbish in a “fancy” bottle as was to be expected.
