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.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottled. A deep red beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of brettanomyces, malt, and lemons, leading to a dry finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost clear red with a tiny off-white head. Sweet and spicy cherry aroma - a rather sophisticated overripe cherry accent. Medium body, sweet and tart cherry accents, carbonation is quite rich, some tannins but the tartness is not overpowering. A very elegant beer. 200812

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
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 (1148) - 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.
