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.

750mL. Pours hazy, beautiful Pinkish red but deep near rhubarb or reddish purple. Pink foam. Nose is fairly phenolic, pretty intense on green olive brine, Taste is salty, mildly acetic, quite leathery, lots of fresh raspberry and cranberry. Bright overall with a wickedly quick finish. Nice, but the mega phenol nose is distracting. As it warms, that leathery, bright, quick palate is getting better and better.

NordicV (1366) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2013
Rubinröd, lätt dimmig öl med lätt rosa skum. Mycket frukt i både doft och smak, framförallt hallon men även tranbär och körsbär. En bra kombination av fruktsötma och vinägersyra.

Franzen (391) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
75 cl bottle at Systembolaget. Never thought I’d rate a sour beer this high. A relly nice one for its type. Very nice sourness and not to stale. Very nice refreshing fruitiness. Conclusion: A really nice sour beer that definetly make me more interested in the style, to which I’m otherwise a bit sceptic

Bottle 75 cl from Systembolaget. Red/ruby with quickly dissipating pinkish head. Lots of raspberries, very nice balance in the sourness (not too sour), slight strawberry, cherries, quite a bit of cranberries. Light body, quite carbonated, long soursweet finish, refreshing. Very nice!

pilsnerrogge (2621) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2013
Bottled:
Beautiful red colour. Small, pink head. Tart aroma of strawberries and raspberries. Sweet and sour flavour of strawberries, cherries, raspberries and oak casks. Pretty good, but i would prefer less sweetness and more tartness.

Koelschtrinker (12459) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 14, 2013
Fruchtiger Antrunk der säuerlich startet und dann deutlich süßer wird. Süffig, die Süßung ist dann zu stark und stört etwas. Fruchtnoten nach Kirsche und vor allem Himbeere. Zum Ende leider zuckrig, trocken. 11/11/12/10/12/10

Doften är frisk med stora toner av hallon, körsbär samt små inslag av aceton. Smaken är relativt syrlig med toner av hallon och körsbär. Härlig eftersmak.

Sweet scent. The taste is really good cherries. The aftertaste is left long and is really good but still a bit sour. An impressive beer. Worth a try! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
