Tasty Flemish old red. Body of wild sourness, but with some nice fruits to balance it all out.

Bottle. Slightly hazy maroon a with fine-grained offwhite head. Aroma is outstanding with a fruity yeast tartness with cherries, red currants and black currants, as well as balsamic vinegar, oak and some earthy notes. Full velvety body and average carbonation. Flavour is tart with fruity acidity of dark berries, apples and grapes, as well as oaken barrels, giving a light astringent and lingering fruity tart finish.

undescribable? A very fruity ’simple’ Rodenbach. Best i ever had, at cellar temp, makes the taste even smoother

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 750 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 7%.
Beautiful intense red colour on the body, clear, with continuous activity in the body in the form of small bubbles. Small pink-ish head, froathy, with low reteniton, leaving a small foam island on the surface.
Aroma of cherries, raspeberries, sweet marmalade for a moment, then it changes to a sour one, then again to a lactic one.
Same on the flavour, intense sour at first with lots of cherries, sour cherries and raspberries, very fruity,with lactic sour notes near the finish. Ends with sweet and sour flavours, very well combined and balanced.
Medium thin body, with good carbonation and very tart palate.
What a great beer!

Bottle at MatSciGuy’s tasting, not sure who shared it. Pours a beautiful red with no head. Aroma is vibrant fruit, raspberries really shining through. Taste is fruity, tart and soft. Absolutely a great beer.
