Rendezvous triple Belgium

Had a glass of it at the pizzeria last night. Two reasons. 1) it was made locally in Roswell, and 2) it was the only interesting draft offering that wasn't a damned IPA or lame American brew. There was a pineapple habanero offering, but the interest in trying it disappears with the IPA designation.

It isn't a very malty beer, more like a crisp lager. Flavor reminds me as much of a heffeweisen as a Belgian ale. It was much lighter on the palate than I expected. At 9.5% ABV, it's more like a barleywine and you can feel the strength of the alcohol on the first sip. Some might comment that it resembles an Oktoberfest beer, and I can't argue with that.

Overall, I liked it and would have it again. I'm going to look for more Rendezvous brews, as long as they aren't IPAs.

Edit: found it in cans this morning. They call it Jude Triple Belgium.
