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.

visionthing (4738) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2016
75cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours hazy caramel brown, some reddish notes and a fairly small, off-white head. Delicious aroma of sour berries with some wooden and slightly earthy notes, hints of dried fruits and malt. Sour, fruity and complex with lovely flavour of raspberries and cherries and a nicely sour finish. Delicious stuff!

Sour red cherry, musty yeast, and straw aroma. Cloudy ruby red with minimal head. Sweet-tart cherry, malt, yeast , and mildly bitter straw flavor. Nice body. Pretty sweet for the style.

Tap at Cafe de Koffer. Clear red copper with thin offwhite head. Cherries, cherry stones, strawberry, woodglue, cinnamon, cork. Very sweet base with vinegar sour softly leaning in, quite a sour sting eventually. Medium body, low to no carbonation. Lactic response. Quite dry, with a cinnamon soft finish.

Tap@ de Klep. ABT bier van de maand.. Rode kleur, schuim verdwijnt tot een laagje op het bier. Aroma van cassisranja . Smaakt zoetzuur, kersen, stoffig, niet echt complex. Viel me tegen gezien de hoge score op ratebeer.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 butelka, warka... no wlasnie, ktos wie, jak sprawdzic warke tego? no niewazne, butla z kartka jak na zdjeciu ;) wyglad wrazenia nie robi - brazowawo-czerwonawe piwo z kiepsciutka piana... aromat zaczyna juz robic wrazenie - sporo owocow ciemnych, glownie wisni, do tego nieco beczki, ciut funku, sporo winnych klimatow. ale dopiero w ustach... wow! nie pilem dotad chyba zadnego kwasnego piwa, ktory by tak fajnie sie zmienialo, i to z lyku na lyk ale i w trakcie lyku. zurawina i winna kwaskowatosc na dziendobry. pozniej nagle pojawia sie... spora calkiem slodycz. pozniej to co w aromatach takie zrownowazone, nieco tanin i wytrawnosc w posmaku, wtedy tez pojawiaja sie cytrynowe klimaty. robi to kolosalne wrazenie i kazdy lyk ma troche inna rownowage - bardzo lubie takie piwa, ktorym smak sie zmienia. srednie wysycenie. jakis slad alko w smaku. praktycznie brak goryczki. bardzo wysoko "owocowosc". generalnie: jestem pod wrazeniem. i jestem praktycznie pewien, ze mozg mnie ne oszukal, i odbior nie ma zwiazku z ograniczona nieco dostepnoscia czy limitowana edycja :)
po wygladzie przywieszki ostatecznie wychodzi, ze to 2014 - zdziwko, myslalem ze duzo mlodszy, bo wszak spora slodycz sie przewija, malo zas breto/lacto/co-tam-jeszcze-w-redenbachowych-beczka ;)

Rami Rami is drinking a Rodenbach Caractère Rouge (2016) by Brouwerij Rodenbach at Kufle i Kapsle Wyraznie gorszy od 2014, acz nadal zaje. Mocniej slodki i mocniej kwasny, mniej owocow i dzikich nutek. Ale pycha i o :) nizej wysycony (keg)
ocena ciut w dol

ThirstyBird (2590) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Pours a deep ruby color with orange highlights and a tan ring. The nose is big tart fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, wood with a nice sweet/sour aroma. The taste is initially sweet fruit with strawberry and raspberry then some sourness, slight vinegar, wood ending very dry. Light/medium in body with active carbonation. I simply love this beer.
