4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle courtesy of tderoeck, merci maat! shared@BE-USA game. Pours gorgeously deep pink-red, juicy nose of raspberry and cranberry more than cherry, taste is heavy on the juiciness as well, more so than any regular Rodenbach: red berry peel, some cherry pit and candy-like raspberry & cranberry fruitiness. Not a trace of ABV or any beeriness at all, for that matter. Less sweet-and-sour balsamic than Rodenbach Grand Cru, almost no oak barrel character which I actually did miss after a 2nd serving - but marvelously balanced as macerated red berry juice.

Bottle, 75cL. Home. A dark garnett beer with ruby hues. Medium white head. Thin bubbles. Poor persistence. Fruity aroma (cheery, raspberry), wood, acid. Light to medium body, medium silky texture, soft carbonation, lasting dry sour finish. Refreshing. Overall, great Rodenbach : fruity woody aroma, powerful sourness, silky texture...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruby red with little foam, almost like cranberry juice. Reminds me a lot of the retired Alexander. Lots of cherries, raspberries, only a hint of cranberries. Nice acidity and a great finish with sour and fruity sweet notes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 2, enjoyed 4 ways at 45F in stemware.
A - Huge cork pop, no gush, Blood red pour, 1 finger head fizzes out to a small head.
S - The nose is fantastic. Gorgeous cherry dominates followed by a small raspberry acidity and that classic oaky rodenhbach nose
T - Very smooth, loads of fruit! Just a huge explosion of cherry and raspberry. cranberry seems like an after-note, fruit salad in a glass. Acidic and tart, not overpowering sour, very easy to drink
M - Juicy, Nice mouthfeel carbonation on a swish.
O - This is a fantastic beer! I have a batch 1 as well and can’t wait to hold that for a very long time.

750ml bottle that Alberto (ippopotamo36) graciously shared at our Belgrade tasting. Special edition. Pours very rosy-red with clean white head. Sweet tart red fruit. Gorgeously tart raspberry foremost. Sparkling juice. Sour is balanced, very juicy, a pleasure. Great finale to tasting. Peppery vinegar, raspberry tartness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille: Almost clear, moderately ruby-amber coloured, bigger and pretty stable creamy pinkish head; distinctive nose of raspberries and cherries, almonds detectable, balsamic vinegar as well, maybe traces of Brett, too; moderate to solid dry sour flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly smooth; lingering fruity (berries and cherries) and sourish finish, caramel and balsamico included.Superb stuff...
