COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewer allow the beer to macerate with fresh cherries, raspberries and cranberries. After this maceration in oak, the beer re-ferments in the bottle. The result is RODENBACH Caractère Rouge, an exceptional RODENBACH with fruit maceration and a 7% alcohol volume. The brew is more than unique and extremely exclusive, as only 900 75-cl bottles were produced. Geunes serves this wilful beer as part of his other unique range of beer varieties in his restaurant, ’t Zilte, at the Antwerp MAS museum.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 6, 2014
750 ml corked bottle. A hazy/cloudy, sparkling, dark red body, with a large, frothy, mostly diminishing off-white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly yeasty (dust, cobwebs), with notes of cherries, raspberries, red fruits, wood, vinegar, hint of red wine. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, hint of bitterness. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, pretty long finish with light bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Very fruity and interesting, although expensive.
