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.

Bottle. Pours a nice ruby red color with a pinkish head. Aroma is quite tart, I get cherry, raspberry, cranberry, some sugary notes, balsamic vinegar, oak, vinous notes, subtle funk and caramel. The flavor follows the nose with a really nice tartness and is quite complex, again lots of cherry and raspberry, some cranberry notes, winegums, sugary notes, balsamic vinegar, oak, vinous notes, the subtle funk of musty or old notes and some caramel. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall another amazing limited release fro Rodenbach!

RasmusOtt (1110) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2012
Pours clear ruby red with a white head. - Lovely .. Aroma has lots of fruity candy, raspberry, sweet cherry, very weak tart note behind and maybe some grapes. Taste is fresh, sweet and fruity with strawberry, raspberry, gummibears, grapes, maybe a bit of vanilla, rather dry and weak tart but no brett or funky notes. Easy drinkable and a nice summerbeer indeed.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A red one, almost clear, and topped by a pink head of moderate size. The cranberries are quite evident in the aroma, pushing the cherries and raspberries to the back. Lightly sourish. Lots of berries in the flavor, not as obviously cranberry focused as the aroma. Full-bodied, tart and quite pleasant. Not much carbonation, but at an appropriate level. A fine brew indeed, although lacking a bit on the complexity I think. 120818
