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.

Drunk with Dom and Dan. Totally delicious. Like a smoother less sick tasting version of their Gand Cru, yet oddly not quite as good. I need to rerate that. Big cheers to Richie btw

Nothing on the bottle, not even a whisper. Lights survived this one as well. Cherry cough sweets, light and airy. Good, but the company it was in last night was challenging.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Beautiful beer all round. Look is light reddish pink, which makes complete sense when you taste the raspbeery sweetness coming off the brew. Taste is light sour with bright berry flavour. Very refreshing and fun. Nice finish - sherbert-esque. Great beer all round. Refreshing and tasty.

@ Basunen. Fantastisk fin, rödlig färg. Doften kommer på en gång och är tydlig fruktig med störst toner av jordgubb. Smaken har en fin och sammetslen syrlighet, känner även den karakteristiska sötman från de vanliga Rodenbach men även en tydlig fatton. Mycket gott!

Bottle @ Stephen’s house thanks to Dave. Thanks! Pours a bright purple maroon appearance with a cream colored head. Very rich cran raspberry, juicy cherry, somewhat funky, light vanilla, juicy aroma. Very juicy, tart, oaky, tart cranberry, sweet cherry flavor. Not super complex and not as good as some Rodenbach but a good beer.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, huge, huge thanks to Dave for the pour! Dark reddish pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of big raspberry, tart cranberry, hints of cherry, blackberry, hints of nice lemon, lactic and vanilla notes, nice tart lemon, wow this is nice. Taste is a mix of raspberry, nice cherry, hints of lemon, lactic notes, slight horseblanket, lots of cranberry, lingonberry, nice basement, finishing sweet, but slightly tart hints of earthy tart fruit. I want more of this.

Bottled. Pours reddish in color with some bubbles. Cherries, some sweetness, berries as blackcurrants. Some marzipan too. A bit like some wilberries hand-picked is the taste made of. A bit of them berries in the finish as well.
