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.

Vignale (1797) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. Rödrosa vätska med doft av smultron, tranbär, hallon, körsbär, hallonbåtar. Försiktig syra, mycket elegant och lätt, fruktig och bärig, lätt fatkaraktär. Otroligt god. Tänker på Hanssens Oudbeitje som närmaste referens i elegans och finstämd bärighet. En upplevelse.

chimpgibbon (201) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle from Utobeer Borough Market. Holy cow this is the promised land. Massive cough sweet aromas, fizz jumping around, cherry, berry. Then bang the mouthfeel and taste just explode in the mouth. Very refreshing cold, as zingy on the palate as a 15 year old virgin, with a whoop of tartness and coldness and fruitiness. Not a massive fan of fruitier beers, but this is just so so good.

Hallstein (96) - Skogn, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2013
Cherries, raspberries, and a slight sour lambic-ish note. A really good beer!

Prufrockstar (676) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, shared by Ryan -- thanks! Aroma of cherry, raspberry, and more cherry. Fragrant, perfumey fruit. Beautiful ruby red, clear, no meaningful head. Cough syrup slick, lots of sweetness with a nice tart "finish", followed by more syrupy sweetness after the tartness subsides, but it works. It works great. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Really nice.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle shared with Brandon at his 70’s style chapel hill home. Pours a lightly sparkly plum reddish pink with a steady fizzy white head and remaining lace. Nose is heavily fruity upfront, followed by some more tart red fruit skins. Really nice and well balanced fruity tart flavor, cranberries are evident along with cherry and raspberry. One of my favorite rodenbachs since I had Alexander!

Rrauth (1091) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Patrick. Sour tart sweet. Little of everything. Best thing is it's not super tart like some sours. Mellow for its class. Has a hint of cherry cough drop smell. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From 0.75L bottle. Pours redfish with light pink head. Cherry/raspberry aroma. Sweet-tart flavor. May be fine for candy, but not my cup of tea for beer. Low rating due to style, not execution. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ripley93 (25) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2013
Fruitbomb. Raspberries and cherries are prominent. Hint of strawberries. Sour and dry with a full and red fruitiness as backbone. Wood noticeable but not at all prominent. Excelent beer.
