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.

Aroma: cranberry, Viburnum berries, mature vinegare. Taste: moderate sourness. Flavour is rich: mild chees, bitter almonds, some oak astrigency. Fresh berries in the aftertaste. Very good, rich and well balanced.

dnicolaescu (1185) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 26, 2015
BOTTLE 75 CL. Strong strawberry and fruity aroma, solid malt backbone, mild acetic notes. Solid and smooth. Might be somewhat over the top with the fruit.

Garlic_of_Doom (558) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours red-brownish with a white foam ring. Aroma and taste is pretty much the same - Vanilla, red berries, red currants, light tart, cereals and sour milk. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry.
Really good beer, but the taste is a bit short, as with many of the sour red ales.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 Lovely aroma of raspberries, cherries with a few hints of wine. The perfect balance of fruit, sour and sweetness! Wine Barrel also felt.

Bottle thanks to errl! Dark red pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is packed with vanilla and fruit. Big raspberry jam, vanilla, oak, flowers, and cherry skins. Tastes awesome with a great sour/sweet balance. Reminds me of a slightly soured NG fruit beer. Can taste the cranberry now to go along with the huge raspberry jam. vanilla, and vinegar. Hints of pears, lemon, and flowers too. Very easy to drink and delicious.

Une superbe bière, encore plus puissant et complexe que la vintage, le nez explose des notes des fruits rouges acidulés et la bouche est longue, finement acidulée et d’une longueur kilométrique. Un régal absolu

Calisky (1618) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2015
#1500 rating Couleur ambrée rouge, légère mousse beige. Nez fruits rouge (surtout framboise) très liquoreux et notes sucrées. Gout fruits rouges acidulés avec notes liquoreuses (surtout canneberge, qui donnent une note cassis je trouve), très légère note boisées. Très bonne, un petit regal a deguster, pas courant, mais pas assez complexe mon gout alors que j’adore les oud bruins.

Det här är så bra det kan bli i denna genre. Sjukt välbalanserat utan att bli tråkig eller förutsägbar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delade flaskan med Robert. Lagrat ölen 2.5år i källaren. Aromen var trevligt, fruktig och bärig, kanske lite nyas från lagringen. Smaken där emot, fantastisk. Balansen var så fantastisk mellan syrliga börsmaken och den sötman som fanns.
