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.

Murky red brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, leather, vinegar, pie crust, red wine, and wild yeasts. Taste of the same, cherries, red wine, cranberries, raspberries, and a sour cherry finish.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Aroma brings a sweet medley of fruity sodas including cranberry and cherry. Pours bright pinkish amber with a white sandy pinkish head. Flavor brings some sweet and tart berries settling so smooth in the palate. It is not too dry, with just the right amount of juiciness.

Steasy66 (1086) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Ruby with tiny white head. Nice tart red fruit aroma. Flavor is a bit jammy with red fruit. Nice but not much better than reg rodenbach.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle. Gorgeous ruby/brown pour with a pink-tinged head. Aroma is tart fruit, cranberries and some great Flanders funk. Fruit is dominant. Flavor is tart cranberries, raspberries linger in the back and there is just a hint of cherry sweetness all surrounded by a beautiful Flanders Red base. Phenomenal beer.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2013
750 cc shared by me at CAH. Pours hazy ruby with minimal head. Nose is complex multi-layered fruit, with predominant cranberry and cherry. Tastes tart, fruity, with notes of oak, lactose, vanilla, and mostly cherry THEN cranberry, with finishing lactic tartness. This one is delicious.

Lilja (2274) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Fantastiskt gott. Smak och doft av hallon, smultron, körsbär. Lagom syrlighet i kombination med ekträ och rödabär. Välbalanserad och lagom söt. Elegant och harmoniskt i gommen. Mer av detta tack.

OldGrowth (3009) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2013
bottle, from Triangle Wine. Good aroma, sweet, fruity. I get raspberry the most, with cherry and cranberry. Tad hazed brownish red color, good initial head, faded to a ring. Sweet tart flavor. Light body, thin sticky mouthfeel, sweet finish. pretty nice, not sure if it was worth the price, around 20 bucks. but nice fruity aroma, sweet tart flavor,good beer

Vignale (2720) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. Rödrosa vätska med doft av smultron, tranbär, hallon, körsbär, hallonbåtar. Försiktig syra, mycket elegant och lätt, fruktig och bärig, lätt fatkaraktär. Otroligt god. Tänker på Hanssens Oudbeitje som närmaste referens i elegans och finstämd bärighet. En upplevelse.

chimpgibbon (436) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle from Utobeer Borough Market. Holy cow this is the promised land. Massive cough sweet aromas, fizz jumping around, cherry, berry. Then bang the mouthfeel and taste just explode in the mouth. Very refreshing cold, as zingy on the palate as a 15 year old virgin, with a whoop of tartness and coldness and fruitiness. Not a massive fan of fruitier beers, but this is just so so good.
