Review: Brasserie Dieu du Ciel’s Rescousse (to the Rescue)

wpid-20141018_000152.jpgwpid-20141017_235513.jpgA local beer whose brewers will donate 66 cents for every six-pack sold to the Fondation de la faune du Quebec?  And which boasts this nature-goddess-like figure on the box?  How could I resist?

Described as an altbier (which is German for ‘old beer’), it is a style of beer brewed using top-fermentation.  This rousse boasts a surprisingly bitter finish with notes of chocolate and coffee…something one doesn’t usually find in red beers.  And there’s a a short poem on the box.  Awesome!

‘Till next time…cheers!
