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.

matbli (130) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle 750 ml, pours amber to red with almost no head. Aroma of sour cherries, strawberries, vinegar and a hint of wood. In taste high sourness and medium sweetness, with some tartness in the end. Alcohol isn’t noticable at all. Nice and very fruity sour ale, but I expected something more from the ageing in oak barrels.
