Pours a cherry red with a reddish wire lacing. The aroma is cherry and berry with a hint of vinegar. The flavor is rather sweet, but finishes tart.

SlovakSniper (5191) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Vintage 2016. Belle robe rubis et tête mousseuse épaisse et plutôt tenace. Mon nez déborde de fruits rouges aigres et doux. Les parfums boisés sont magnifiques et alléchants. Les saveurs me plaisent énormément. Belle touche balsamique, cerises et autres petits fruits rouges et douceur montée avec une très grande justesse. Une bouche légèrement sirupeuse, modérément bataillée par les bulles. La finale est fruitée, douce et aigre, en équilibre sur un fil tendu entre la perfection et l’amusement extrême.

Marheb (5021) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 6, 2016
(En fût à The Glendale Tap): *Cuvée 2016: Cerises sucrées et moyennement acidulées, la signature sauvage Rodenbach et un enrobage boisé épicé. Je dis ça en toute humilité mais ça manquait un peu de finition, trop sucré à mon goût. Malgré tout, divertissant.

Sarlacc83 (1953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle shared by Todd. Thanks! A: Dark red in color with a pink head. N: Intense cherry, grapefruit, lemon rind, currant jam, some funk, a lot of oak, red wine vinegar, leather and tobacco. Even more cherry. T: Quite tart, sweet - but not sweet-tart. So good. M: Light body, no alcohol, spritzy carbonation. O: The Grand Cru with lots of cherry to boot. Just so good; I wish it had never been retired and wasn’t so hard to get.

Pours reddish with an off white head. The songs had cherries, such malt, mild sourness, spices and bugs. Nice. It has a medium crisp body with gentle micro carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes with more spice and cherries. Excellent.

JBPortland (1490) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2016
750ml bottle 2016 release, pours dark blood red with light pink head. Nose has sole vinegar, tart cherry, leather, sweet fruit. Taste is crisp, medium tartness, cherry juice, cherey soda, sweet, light vinegar compared to nose, old leather and toasty crust, light oak presence, subtle vanilla. Solid stuff but not really a significant improvement over standard Grand Cru or Caracter Rouge for me personally.
