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.

tmrmwel (858) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy maroon a with fine-grained offwhite head. Aroma is outstanding with a fruity yeast tartness with cherries, red currants and black currants, as well as balsamic vinegar, oak and some earthy notes. Full velvety body and average carbonation. Flavour is tart with fruity acidity of dark berries, apples and grapes, as well as oaken barrels, giving a light astringent and lingering fruity tart finish.
