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.

Wow this is awesome. Everything I want in a Sour Red plus more. It’s all there slightly yeasty, with a funk and a hint sour cherry in the smell and taste. But you also get an added flavor of mostly tart cranberry with some raspberry. This is a must try if try if you like this style.

Blood red body, thin pinkish-white head, spotty lacing. Sour raspberries and cherries--all fruit. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, a little sweeter than I’d like--although not entirely unexpected from Rodenbach.

Fritz123 (967) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Shared with Edgar and Vanessa. Snifters. Pours a reddish color, clear, with a pinkish-white head. Head lasted a little and some lacing. Aroma is very aromatic with the raspberries and cranberries dominant. A hint of tartness with the cherries and an overall fruity goodness. The taste is just blissful. About as perfect as a sour fruit beer can get. You get all three with the raspberries, cherries and cranberries. It is tart, but not so much it seems acidic or overpowering with yeasts. It is also slightly sweet which brings forth the fruit flavors even more. Tart finish with medium carbonation. Very good.

Pours hazy blood orange into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to nothing. Cranberry and cherry aromas. Medium bodied with sour cherry and cranberry upfront turning to oak in the dry finish.
