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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2013 Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Pours clear, ruby-pink with a fine white foam head. Big tangy cherry nose, some raspberry. Big tangy flavor as well, light to medium sweet, with very mild vinegar character, nice cherry notes. Light bodied with fine, tingly carbonation. Sharp tart finish with nice cherries and raspberries, some butter and rosemary. Very refreshing, very drinkable. Nice one. (4.1)

Split a bottle at a bottle share. Poured a rich red color with a small red-pink head. Aromas were fruity, with notes of cherries and raspberries, tons of oak character to it. Nice acidic tart notes, sour jaw tinge that was quite enjoyable. Liked the sweet characters that worked their way in with the sour characters. Very enjoyable, impressed.

At Eb’s Pour a dark reddish brown color with a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of tart cherries, funk, yeast, a bit of vinegar, some sweet fruits, some tart fruit. The flavor is pretty tart up front with some fruity tartness and a bit of acid. The fruit comes in midway to provide some sweet balance before a bit of funk, vinegar, and tannic oak step in. Medium body with a sharp level of carbonation that provides for a prickly mouthfeel. I rather enjoyed this one, its good now, but almost feels like a few years would do wonders to help meld the flavors a bit.

MotherBrother (730) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2012
Pour clear ruby red, with a very small white n’ fizzy head. Aroma of barnyard, cherries, brett, slight vinegar, wood. Taste is sour at first, and develops into a fruity sweet finish. Medium bodied, with a rather fizzy carbonation. This is as much beer, as it is lambrusco. Rather tasty.

sm89walt (1768) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. Poured a clear pinky red with a fizzy & fading white to off-white head. Sour cherries, mixed summer fruits, modestly tart with some woodiness on the aroma. Flavours of tart cherry, raspberry, apple, wood with a medium length sharpness, light vinegar & a delicate tannin bitterness to finish. Prickly medium to full carbonation, medium-ish body with a restrained sourness throughout. Gentle with good structure. Not too complex but very likeable & drinkable.
